    Found this video online, Honda Civic, I followed it for a couple of laps but wouldn't let me by, until they made a mistake trying to stay ahead/overtake.

    Floyd and I appear then about 15:50, and have to make our way through traffic.

    Love to comment but I did the same to a C1 with Edh in the car (And Ed rightly suggested I waited). However, I didn't have such good commentary. For those unable to see/hear it...

    "Iain in front"
    ** Pause **
    "He wants to put that engine in an imp"
    ** Short pause **
    "CRAZY"
    ** LONG PAUSE WHILE LEAVING THE CIRCUIT"
    "Sorry about that folks"

    You deserve each other, hug it out next time and move on :D.

    Sh*t happens, especially in front of the cameras.

    Still waiting for Pinder to highlight my early doors spin, as I was greeted with a booming 'GOOD NEWS! I caught it on camera!' back in the pits after coming in.

    Short video from early in the day with Andrew Turner grass tracking in the mx5.

    Unfortunately the hastily added gopro session was not in an ideal location (drivers mirror blocking view) so not the best angle (will sort for future events)

    Eventaully I would agree it would but at the moment I dont think the lack of LSD is a limiting factor. Having a better surface (Rocky) and tyres would make a huge difference in my opinion.

    I think that was when he went sailing past me at 'optimistic' speed into gracelands... then understeered straight off...

    Floyd probably owes me at least twenty with the interest rolling up...

    Those laps were a lot of fun :D. Thanks for sharing and sorry I didn't get out in the Elise :(.

    Sad to think that chequered flag is the end of Rocky.

    It's alright matey, my M3 has an invisibility cloak fitted. It never ever stands out

    That said, it was one of the only days I've had where it was the ONLY E46 M3. Getting rare now...

    Great lapping all round.

    If I find an adapter for my micro SD Iíll post my incar footage.

    I was off line due to Steve being on the line.

    I could have lifted out of it and didnít.

    No harm done. Just new pants.

    I span (a bit) right in front of Floyd, so I don't think that anyone is immune to the running out of lock / luck / talent

    Was a great laugh, really enjoyed myself. Aston and Vics who came with me also had an amazing time, were still buzzing about it the following day.... and that's why we do it.

    Thanks all, made me happy.

    Agreed! Good to be on track with you again.

    Aston and Vics had some pax laps with me and I'd like to continue the conversation with Aston too.

    Another video, this time following Nick for a couple of laps in the morning as it was starting to dry in places.


    We both cocked up the hairpin

    I know it was over a week ago, but I`ve put together the footage from Gurds, Nick and my session just after lunch. The video is a combination of the feed from all 3 cars, which I think makes it a bit more interesting.

    Nige, love that triple car video. Must have taken a while to compile, so thanks for doing it? I really enjoyed watching it.

    Would you say your laps were faster together or slower? What times did you get - I could only roughly guesstimate from the video.

    We're all passengers sometimes, Floyd.

    I think the tank-slapping scrubbed off a lot of speed, although I was wondering how slick their grass was going to be, as I remember things seeming to accelerate on grass at Combe before now.

    It took a long time. So thank you.

    Those laps were slower, around the 2:01 to 2:04 range.

    My quickest was a 1:59 when I was lapping by myself with no other cars

    Fantastic video Nige, thanks for taking the effort.


    You passed me in Rich's Boxster at 9:30ish into the video. I was going really slowly on a cooldown lap. I considered trying to tag onto the back of you both, wish I had now.




    Don't suppose anyone got any footage of the Polo sliding about in the morning sessions?
