I went.

It was good.


Things I learned...

Oxford services do a nice breakfast

Never believe weather forecasts

People do bump into each other on trackdays occasionally

DaveG's roll cage is lovely - just don't ask how much...

Don't mention your sweaty helmet to Dan - he might offer to freshen it for you


As an aside, I received a phone call from a certain R8 pilot during the day. It went something like this... (spellings altered to show the pronounciation used)

-ring-ring.

(slurring) "It's me, listen, I'm at Lee Manze with this great bloke. He's great, aren't you John??. Listen, I was telling John about that car we saw at the Nurburgring, you know, that French one. It was blue, definitely blue..... or white. It had that funny engine, you remember... What was it called?"

"It was a Renault "Al-peen" Sean. An A110."

"yeah, thats it! Oy! John, it was an Alpine!! Yeah. What's that John? Talbot? yeah, yeah, that's it - lovely thing it was..."

-click-durrrrrrrrr.


I digress...

Was great to see friends old and new today!!!

Shergar was Pax`ing with me when we came upon this Elise with a somewhat optimistic entry speed. :loser:

Only a 20 second clip. ;)
