^ It's hard to know if a sign is an instruction from the marshals or not when you're trying to ram it into 2nd gear without a synchro.
Ahh that was the problem then....should have been in third ;)

Your stand looked impressive at Coombe with nice selection of standard and modified cars. I had a look around. I was just up on the 350zuk stand

Ah but did you try the cake? :D
Let's see your 350Z then, I'm sure a lot of us have considered them before settling on an 8.
I currently have a 370, but have two previous 350’s.
I must of mussed the cake

I left a couple of almost new chairs in the gazebo at Combe, one very green and the other not so green.

Belated thanks to everyone..

Thanks for being so welcoming to me on my first venture out with the car club in a very long time (Thruxton). Thanks for the N00b sticker (won't need it again thankfully), tow hook tool to clean the crap out, tyre gauge so I could get the pressure out and to Pete for jumping in my car for my 12:30 session for his expert tips and advice.

I loved the feel of the PZ on the track and have come away with a few casual mods in mind for next time. Here's hoping that the "pz group buy" doesn't take too much longer as I can't wait to have it slapped on..

It was great to meet you guys and I look forward to the next time. :D

Marc, bring them along on Sunday and I'll get them to Pete. :)

This event is always a great turn out, and this time was no different. It was really good to catch up with various people, but as ever, I missed a lot too.

Thanks to Chris, Nigel, the Events Team, and all the members who lend a hand throughout the day. It really is a fine example of what makes being part of a car club such an excellent thing.

And as Nigel has already said, it was great to thank Caren for all that she has contributed over the years.
Not forgetting Rachel of course, she even survived a bacon sandwich I made! :lol:

Looking forward to the next one already. 8)

Better late than never, here are the pics I got of you all on track, I think I got everyone. Next time I'll get around to the other side of the track, the sun was a bit to bright for our side. Feel free to take any copies if you want them.

PS: Bonus pictures of the Blue Tits nesting in the crash barrier included. All the people and all the noise, and they didn't bat an eyelid :shock:
PPS: Let me know if you have any problems viewing them.

Thanks for these, some good shots in there!

Anyone know who EX54 CZK belongs to? I might be interested in copying your bonnet venting after how high my temps got during the 2nd session..!
