    Unfortunately I won't be there, but will be watching on Livestream.
    Say 'Hi' to Peden N. for me, and take some photos of his crazy see-through 180sx (249sx).

    Only just saw this, so didn't say hi.
    Everyone else has taken a picture of the doors and roof, it was awesome. I seem to have forgotten to do that.

    Good day out, learned a lot, and got properly sun burned.

    Awesome car. Once it's making the extra power, it will be a proper contender.

    I was looking at it on the from the spectating area, and the sun was shining through the doors. It was spectacular. I didn't have a camera with me to capture it though.

    Btw he's loving the DTAFast Digi-dash! In fairness, you've been a great supporter of his.
    I'm looking forward to seeing the 249sx up close, will hopefully do so during the Winter off-season.

    Anyway, Meal thread here : Rockingham Meal


    If anyone wants to park their car / trailer at the circuit as usual, I need to know beforehand, you can`t just turn up on the Friday night and dump it, they insist on a list.

    Clever little things. 20Mp stills camera, 4k video camera and a 7km range, but if it loses signal, it waits for 30s then flies back to where it started on GPS…….

    Hmmm. Porsche thinks it is an Audi at the moment running on 5 Cylinders.. Not sure I am going to be able to get it sorted by Friday. Just changed out the 6 coil packs but the problem returned last night on a trip back from Heathrow and the garage that did the fix was closed today for some unknown reason.

    Anyone want to buy my spot for the day? Still happy to meet up on Friday and maybe some Pax laps on Sat.

    You are looking at the wrong forecast. Just keep picking different ones until you find one that is sunshine all day

    How's the wedding planning going ?
    Simon no longer owes me anything, Dave does though.
    Floyd probably owes me at least twenty with the interest rolling up...

    I will be emailing the circuit on Thursday at the absolute latest.


    The Golf is ready, all I needed to do after RoR is give it a wash I want to check the front alignment, the steering wheel wasn't dead ahead when in a straight line so I'll do that tomorrow but that's all

    Oh and I had replaced the front silencer with a straight through pipe, it's on V bands so took a couple of minutes to swap. I'm hoping it'll not only be a bit cooler in the cabin with the tube further away from the tunnel, but a bit noisier too

    If it's too loud and I need to refit the silencer I'll just blame Prawn. He said it would be fine....

    I shouldn’t worry Nige. The Rocky management seem to be laying on unsilenced days up until ‘the end’. Ones appeared on the 25th. I think they’re more focused on getting as much cash as possible rather than keeping the locals at bay.

    After the hassle last time I`m not getting involved.

    I think Chris said we could have a couple that we can use for tools, coffee etc. But other than that, no idea.

    Ha ha. I believe that was the offer Nige - they’ll be some garages reserved for us, but certainly not enough to house all the cars. Somewhere to stash our stuff and set up a tea station is fine by me.
