Yeah the pictures were done by the professional photographers that were there...I bought the CD as I thought they were pretty good.

My bro took my Uncle out for a session but he had to come back in after 4 laps as my Uncle was gonna be sick :rofl:

I did feel a bit weather beaten when I got back!

one thing that has put me off about airfield trackdays.. do you get alot of stone chips? especially on the windscreen? my dad took his mini on elvington once and came back with a white front end and no tires lol

the rallye looks very very sexy out on the track though!

Nice pics John! :)

Did not know they did cds there and then... I will have to wait until they put them up on the website now :(

My tyres are about half worn I would say, front passenger took quite a beating. I definitely need stiffer springs to match the arb and a diff...

Stone chips are a minor problem, you just need to make sure you dont follow the cars too close and pick a different line. Thats if you can be bothered :)

There are alot of stones ... so you can get lots of stone chips but it doesn't really bother me, I like a car that looks used :D

Tyre wear is quite high, the brand new parada's I had on the front are now half worn. The nearside rear outer edge wears VERY fast due to the high speed double 90degree right at the back of the circuit!

Good day allround....although some of the driving standards were very poor!!

A few of the cars were unbelievable slow...and a few drivers in fast cars who were slow in the bends then wouldn't let you past on the straights :heh: :heh:

What would have annoyed me most is being stuck behind the D1 drift team that decided to show up....

Looks like some tidy cars there - that blue 106 with Saxo arches looks odd!

This has to be Dixon in the passenger seat :p Click (http://xtremesportsphotography.net/gallery2/main.php?g2_itemId=185597)

No wonder when you take a look at the specs tongue out

There are some nice photos on the website too :steer:

Anyone knows what's in the blue 106 with black wheels (and the saxo arches) ?
It has to be a 1.6 to have such big brake discs
On some photos I got the feeling that the front wheels are smaller than the rear wheels.
Anyone feels the same way about that too ?
Or should I just go to bed :heh: ?

:goodnight:
