I was talking to Malcolm about this. Low down helps, but the main thing is having a polarizing filter on the front of the lens = removes all reflection from the windscreen if aligned right. It is the one filter you can't replicate in a computer.

I have a circular polarizing filter, that I had to remove for the early sessions, as it takes a couple of stops in low light.
Didn't think to put it back on later after it get a bit brighter #-o

I'm heartened to see that this was such a successful weekend.

Just a reminder that if you would like to upload video to be edited into the event video please use the link below:
https://www.dropbox.com/request/PTQt363AyXcNq0Ozm5mM

Only one member has uploaded so far, thank you John. There's no rush (the link will be alive for another week and a half) but if you folks do want a snazzy video keepsake from the Club then we will need footage to draw from.

Ah well, in that case maybe swing by here and pick up an f2.8 or f4 .... you can never have too much glass (I might have also had that conversation with Malcom :twisted:)

Just wanted to post up and Thank everyone in The Events Team and helpers for making a great weekend of it. Although I couldn't make it due to family reasons and wasn't really involved in this one, it really cant go unnoticed how many people give up their spare time to make this event happen from the planning and organising to the Event itself. It is the first Agm weekend I've missed since I started coming and it felt weird but thanks for all the pictures and comments everyone.

Take care

Azam and Claire.

Track videos, now I've finally emancipated them from the dashcam memory card. Apologies for any singing, swearing or self-commentary!

Thought I was doing well to hang on to the two of you for a few laps!

Looking at the video timestamps, my laps went from around 72 seconds early on to 67 seconds in the last session. Not the fastest (stock standard) on the track, but a decent improvement as it dried out and I improved some of the lines / braking.
Still not convinced whether that last downhill 90 right is better in 2nd or 3rd in the R3.
