not for the trackday section, I cam across some pic taken by by an excellent freelance photographer Tim Dunlop

from
http://www.dunlopix.com/

these are different from the usual track day selections as they are not head on and into/out of slow corners but side on which is a very tough aspect, although into one of the slower corners but it's still side on an the focus of the images is very impressive considering the subjects !

so in my book a big thumbs up for Tim Dunlop

and there were quite a few of us on the Silverstone Trackday (17th Feb 07) and a few other 911 owners, so therefore it makes the owners gallery

anyway all of you polishers seem to dominate the owners gallery, so here is a chance for the track dayers to fight back with our 911's with the way they were also intended for !

follow the links to view all 3 pages for this event, however I've posted all the relevant pics of all 911's and friends of the site, as it's the owner gallery after all !

so start of with another one of those SY GT3's so that would be me !

P2177155b.jpg




1 less and it's a GT2 !

P2177127a.jpg




and to keep the Yellow theme, there actually was another Mk2 GT3 with what looked like BBS rims and another Mk1 GT3...

but he's another yellow from the day, that shock horror isn't a GT3 !!

Glenn was also there in his Orange 7 RS

P2177351a.jpg




and so was a nice chap called Pete in the orange on black combo

P2177164a.jpg

even if Glenn isn't wearing Orange when he's on track !

(note, just as well I didnt wear my Porsche Martini Top on that day as well, we may have to check outfits next time!)

P2177151a.jpg




and another one of Pete in his 997 GT3 RS, so which orange - black combo do you like!

so what else you ask, of course the usual selection of red and blue combo 996 GT3 RS's

no sign of Poon, but Andy, John and KC in the special edition Black on White 996 GT3 RS which is fully Manthey'ed

P2177207a.jpg

of course then we had the Aston's

my Mate in his Vanquish S

P2177088b.jpg




with a fellow owner in his AMV8, only then do you realise the sheer differnce in size

P2177047a.jpg




and for good measure, after he got bored with his Vanquish he let his mrs have a go on track !!! with Mike Wilds as the co-pilot !!! brave man !!

P2177271b.jpg

back on the 911 front we had Cem his new 997 GT3, plan old white which does looks amazing, which got some of the pit lane photographers interested in some private photoshots, who all seemed to be unfazed by the Yellow GT3 !!

P2177140a.jpg




even the Carrera GT seemed to be camera shy, but did pop out of the pits now and again..

P2177292a.jpg




whereas the Gemballa 997 TT only made it as far as the car park

P2177027a.jpg



Migration info. Legacy thread was 119819
 
but don't worry it was not just super super cars all day, a 964 you say..

P2177242a.jpg




followed by a Cayman... (guards red does seem to be popular!)

P2177233a.jpg




but that's it for red unless I mention the Noble, not sure if they have a fancy name for Noble Red ?

P2177216a.jpg




and no Goldtrack Trackday would be complete without a Rosso Corsa ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale, well because the regular 360's wouldn't have made it to the track ! or so i hear !!

P2177176a.jpg



Migration info. Legacy thread was 119821
 
and finally another GT2 managed to sneak on track, I guess it will leave it's widow making to another day

P2177173a.jpg




and here's a 996 TT which reminds me of Dave's old car, Meriden ??

P2177086a.jpg




whilst there were the usual crop of Cup Cars out for a run or test, including a driver of another cup car (who will remain nameless!) who ran out of petrol, hhhmmm indeed !

P2177171a.jpg






cheers Tim for an excellent selection of images

In this company, the TT's wing looks a bit undernourished.
I hadn't really noticed it so much before.

Just to nitpick - the fezza is an F430 and they're actually reasonably handy on track :wink:

My apologies learned sir, upon further investigation you are quite correct and my pedanticism wrongly directed!

And agree with Rob RE the decals - don't do it!!!!
