First of all I would like to thank everybody who was there for being very welcoming & helpful. Especially Nigel for organizing the event.
After the drivers briefing I went out for the sighting lap behind one of the professionals and my main aim was not to go off.
Once the pit lane was open I took a bravery pill & went out. I found the Mazda very forgiving and very grippy in the wet. I quickly found out the I could do au rouge flat out in fourth gear, which was a hell of a buzz. But I was really struggling in some of the slower corners. I spoke to Kelly about it & she took me out in her car & showed me the wet lines. I was like a light bulb coming on. With that knowledge the circuit was awesome. I had a few scary moments but the car came home in one piece. With it raining the RX8’s were not getting passed by the more powerful cars. If anybody is thinking about a track day just do it & think I learnt more in the rain than I would have in the dry.
Was great to meet you mark will meet again ! Bruges yesterday now in Rouen for two days great place Image
