That's what I thought, but apparently not any more. Just one 'hanger' per car that gives 1 car and 1 driver entry, hence tight feckers. At the very least they could have highlighted this at the point of booking so that additional advanced entry tickets (a whopping £3 cheaper than on the day) could be ordered, but the booking form was the same as its always been and I didn't find this out until it all arrived last week.

Zummerset! OOoh arrgghhh!
Dan was waiting at the final session for me! I didn't realise I had to get a pass to go on track as a passenger.

Althought I arrived late(ish) it was a good day. My Rover wouldn't have taken a beating around that track.

Poor little brakes get warped from my road driving so a track would just kill them! Not to mention having no baffles in the sump. The k series don't like swinging about too much!

The bonus if te day was...

Arriving late meant I didn't pay for passengers, also as I only went out on the last track session as a passenger they waived the £5 passenger fee.

Nice to meet a couple more faces, did some people not make it?

Was a good day out, shame I didn't get to see grants evo.

MASSIVE thanks to pingu for saving my day, bringing three clutch cables to the rescue after i had to puppy round in 1st gear to get in to the pit lane. Owe you one for that.

Thanks to James and Greg for the company on the way down/ over the weekend, and last and probably least aswell, thanks to stef for organising it and getting a BMW parked across out stand :)

Too eager, too late to scrub the speed off, hence trail brake :lol:

In fairness, even on the first session he had the hang of riding the kerbs, think the camera just caught him out on a bad one :lol:

I do like that first picture with the Atom 8)

Shame the camera didn't last long enough for the rest of the day, by the time we got to the stand and settled in, Dan, Rich and Stef where out on track so I only managed to get over to Quarry and 10 minutes worth of snapping until battery went flat, I'll bring my Nikon next time :wink:

The day went too quick, I did manage to get two checky camera shots;

Greg :whistle:

And this tool!

Yeah, unfortunately a dying breed.

Greg had to travel 8 hours here and 9 hours home to make it :whistle:

Still only 5 of us rocked up. Shame we cant get the numbers together we used to.

Especially when the offer of free transport/helmet hire/pass laps is available.

Hopefully a better turn out next spring :)

Who was the guy in the NFR coupe?

I did manage to say hello and catch his name (Matt) but didn't stay long enough for a proper chat.
