Got a bit flaky on the second session which was again hot tyres but I don't think the debris left from the drifters helped...

Still good fun though and a quieter session which was less intense. My mate has GoPro video of both sessions and I'll link to them when they are put up.

There was some beauties out there but no big Off’s ( except for the drifters )
You should have popped over for an hour

Many thanks to our cooks today Rachel & Jacqui and also to Adam & Ian for bringing the "kit" and of course to all those who attended and gave the stand its usual friendly social vibe. Sorry it worked out a bit expensive for you Theresa buying the shiny stuff from Adam.

Plenty more footage and things but a quick play with the new (very cheap!) helmet cam. Might have to strap it to the rear towing eye for flame pics now that my ball gag has fallen off :'(

Thank you all for putting in the effort despite the smaller than usual turnout :) shame I didn't get to come out on the same session but sounds like I landed with a more peaceful bunch than what you did!
Next time :D





Managed a 1:26.99 lap.
Taking best sectors that didn't involve traffic, the car would have managed a 1:25.92.
Having some more cojones into quarry and camp I'm sure you could shave half a second further off of that.
Monsieur Lemon, get yourself some semis! :inlove:

Thanks to all those involved with organising, catering, cooking etc as always =D> and to everybody for the good company. I really ought to go to bed, I've been up for 25 hours now (not necessarily awake for all that time though).

Thoroughly enjoyed the day didn’t go out on track which gave me a chance to walk around and view the track antics.
Well done to all who turned up and went out on track
Big thanks to the catering staff
Hope you all enjoyed your day and had a safe journey home.
Well done RX8OC

Got a bit flaky on the second session which was again hot tyres but I don't think the debris left from the drifters helped...

Still good fun though and a quieter session which was less intense. My mate has GoPro video of both sessions and I'll link to them when they are put up.

Not had chance to get my photos and videos up today as I've been fighting with my FD this afternoon! Will most likely have chance to get them up tomorrow.

On another note there are some crash videos up online already!

Finally got round to posting up my video, the etiquette of some of the other drivers was abysmal, as can be heard by my comments( sorry kids). thanks to all who organised it, and to the girls for cooking breakfast. we had a good day out :thumright:

Like in the first video of me, James got it right on the head "It was a disaster from the start".

there had to be something like 40+ cars in that 11:15 session...
Thanks, Stu
