It was a brilliant day out in the glorious sunshine and with the local 911uk-ers, PeterS, Cheif, Infrasilver thumbsup

Great to meet Sundeep, T8, Askgees, Hong Kong fuey and many others finally Thumb

I bought my eldest son along (22), who isn`t really into cars and he had a really good time, especially enjoying the ride on track and us attempting to follow PeterS on the way home Grin

Driving standards on track were non-existent, which was probably to be expected at this type of event, sadly Rolling Eyes

A little bit more organisation re the track slots would make this event a whole lot better, maybe one or two 911uk-only slots so we can stay clear of the nutterists Thumb

Track standards were awful, cars just stuck to the left hand side of the road who would just floor it on the straight Dont know

It did present a very different track day challenge trying to get past cars with double the horsepower, certainly made it interesting although very frustrating when stuck behind them.

then ending the day with our show interview on the main stage with an audience of a dozen Very Happy


Ok, so normally we would say this is 911uk using his big bag of racing driver excuses Floor but this time there is evidence Thumb We have our own VAR for my last track session...(apologies for sound turned off as we leave the pits, but its just wind noise on the sound).

https://youtu.be/9O_ZT61fgtY

Audience of 12 hmmm ? you cannot count me and Al Satch as you made us drive over.....and the guy in the ice cream van isn't going in the number he was working selling porn Floor Floor to the other 9 guys in the queue Hand

Great video Alastair....One of your best Thumb I could even understand your Geordie accent and I'm a Mackem !!

Thanks to Sundeep, T8 and all the 911Uk boys for organizing this year and to the Oop North Posse for the drive out and making it a great weekend. I would certainly have a go on track next time with a bigger 911 group.

A couple of pics attached, cheers.

Some great video's there.

Not sure you should have sat behind me for so long EJ, but when those Civic's held me up I was glad you got past them, took me a little longer to do the same with only 164 bhp, I would interested what those hatches were putting out for comparison.

I was using the first lap as a 'which way do I go from here' lap so was taking it easy. After waiting behind that gaggle I got fed up and floored it, that Renault Clio Cup (white) was pretty nippy, even on the straights he wasn't far behind me, I did let him past as the yellows were out due to the Fiesta going off and ruining our day! (honestly they were out!)

We had a great day in the sunshine! Nice to meet a few of you, will be along again as long as you don’t mind the boxster showing up 😁, I wish I had bought some track time now, so I’d be up for booking a club session too, I see they are going to Silverstone in October! Could we get enough together for that?

Looked like you got clouted by a stone on the screen at 5:20 - no damage?
I wish I'd booked track time too now - definitely next year Thumb

Interesting Sun 7 Oct @ Silverstone

It's a cheap car day and track day, anyone fancy it ?

Entry is £35 and each 20 mins is £35 Question

Sun might even shine, or not!

Great pics and vids.

That stone will have come off the red civic. He had a bit of a moment and an off at the chicane on the first time round. 1:40 ish

Only managed 1 shot of anyone else as I chose the wrong start slot sorry. It does look great though...13:35 ish.

https://youtu.be/92K9iiGmQ6Y

Infrasilver one more lap and it would have worked. You come into shot just after the flag. I'll clean up the warm down lap shots and send you the video.

Anyone else notice the car in gravel at Macleans? Autopaps panda or the VX?
