After sitting for a month or two sad and unloved (except for a brief and steamy liasion with Leavingeasy) it was time for the Golf to come over, Jon kindly volunteered and the boys followed suit.

Oil temp was waaaaaay above 135 on saturday, so a quick check and some more was added.

They 8 lap ticket I had bought up the top, wouldn't let me on at BS, so no race, Karl buggered off to build a trampoline while I went up top and did two laps to look for him.

Was a cracking weekend and the Golf really did do well, as I thought it would. It's crying out for another 100hp, but the handling is spot on. I even got 41mpg out of it on the (hot) run across to the Ring.

Oi I can hear you, you know!

Loving the sig Weeboy. Please edit to say I give a four star big thumbs up. Needs a brake bioas bar IMHO (altho UB says it was just because the car had sat about for a few months)
