:D It is mainly cardboard and fablon, with a bit of fuzzy felt thrown in for effect.

If I get time this weekend I will update the thread for you to SPAM some more, as I found the pictures on an SD card th other day from after it came from the bodyshop, many moons ago.

Naa not at all

I forget that unlike most folk who have life's, i dont ie responsibilities , kids, wifes, work etc

I perhaps play the " oh look at me i am from edinburgh" card too easily

Would be awesome if you could make it, i know personally i would take a lot from some one like your track day experience on board

I ended up not running with new battery and cable requirments and given how the day turned out i was pretty glad i missed it.
So Greg, as much as id like to wind you up and say you really missed out - you didnt! It was damp all day making it both tricky and prone to red flags. I think there were some 7 or 8 red flags. Track was littered with mud and body work and at one point a half mile stretch of very slippy oil was laid down.
Also had a damaged barrier at one point and a rather wrecked porker 300yds further on.....


Thanks to Dan for the passenger rides tho, I really enjoyed that. Was scary at first (not used to being a passenger!) but as it dried everything got better and was more fun. Last couple of runs were really good, with a dry line and Dan was more upto speed with the track and was going really well. Hanging onto a Race clio V6 on the last run. I wont mention getting passed by a type R in the wet tho. Ooops i did :lol:
Had a few close calls, both as victims and perpatrators!

Dans car went very well, im impressed with the engine, even at 12psi it pulls pretty well.


Couple of pics of Dan in the morning when it was at its wettest (fully damp)
I also have a load of laps times for Dan Ill post later. But as the track was damp they dont mean a great deal.
Image
Image


Lots of BMW's present.
Image



Sure thats a corner down there.
Saw quite a bit of this going on.
Image


Hangon, thought i was oulton 2013, not Lemans 1972
Image


White tsi Seat. Was being driven pretty well. Also saw a Rover 75 and an opel insignia :)
Image


Old RS500, Dan said he was sideways out of pits early on. Till he was told off.
And an even older porker behind. I didnt see this breakdown which was a suprise (last time i saw porkers at oulton they were lucky to get 2 laps before something broke)
Image


Couple of old fords sandwiching something pretty quick and not ford.
Image

And a pic of me!
Someone turned up in an identical 135 to mine. It broke down. Was i suprised? Nope.
