    Despite there being only one very brief track closure, there were a number of incidents

    This is one of the weirdest - a driveshaft from a Megane, fortunately not on the racing line

    To be fair, Floyd, you do have 4WD and a rotary silencer, you just need slicks and aero and you'd have the full cheater's package.

    Never done the 'ring in the wet, it's something I'd desperately love to do (cue Nige posting the Rockingham video).... to be honest, being in a position to do any track day at the moment would be a feature.

    Not at all. You were out and driving, learning the levels of grip not sitting in the garage complaining it was raining.

    The ring in the wet is just that. A wet circuit. Take your time, drive within your ability and experiment with `unusual`lines to find what works and what doesn`t.

    I`d always prefer a dry day but I take the necessary tyres to ensure the rain doesn`t stop me lapping

    If I tried that I think the speed differential would make me a danger to other drivers

    Everyone else is going slow too

    I know you don't like the wet at all Paul, we've discussed this before . My view is, if you never drive in the wet, you'll never get used to it.

    Sort of on topic....I did a bike track day at Cadwell 15 years ago. It rained all morning. So bad for the first two hours that the track was closed. Half the guys went home. Opened the track at about 11 but it drizzled all day. By lunch 75% had gone home. The few that remained and rode had a great time and personally, I learnt way more on that wet day than several dry days put together. Stuff I still use in wet weather road riding now.
    If a man speaks his mind in a forest and no woman hears him...is he still wrong ?

    I love a wet day, they remind me of happy times of driving slow paced cars with very little mechanical grip.
    Takes a lot of skill to look this bad you know...

    This is true. I had great fun at Blyton when it bucketed it down.

    I won't actively do a wet one now, more for the misery of the actual drive there
    Ermmmmm
