I am planning a Goodwood track day on Saturday 29 February. Not sure your car will make the 98Db static noise though.

I will get a Silverstone in as well as I need the Westfield out!

As for paddle shift - you are clearly getting soft :roll: 8-) :lol: :lol: :lol: Next news is you will be buying an automatic! :lol: :lol: :?

Hi Lee,

What's the deal with Spa? I'd like to get there at some point.

Llandow now booked for May. Might do Blyton in Sept as well. I've avoided it before as the drive put me off, but time to get over that.

Ok ive booked spa with the MNR owners club. They are heading down from hull ferry il be going from calias alone. Ive booked the tunnel.
My current plan is to take the car on its own leaving sunday 29th march and heading home friday 3rd april. Will stop in dunkirk and brussels overnight enroute and find 2 places to stay on the way back. There is 2 back to back trackdays at spa wednesday and thursday...im just going to do one day.
My mrs has decided she may want (with little un) to come so if thats the case i will trailer the car down and make a joliday of it with the track day in the middle.
Theres a few people going by the sounds of it and not all in MNRs so will be fun. Radical, cateham, mx5 and of course mnrs.

It looks like a lot of us are booking up track days on our own. We need to get them posted up somewhere on here! (Unless I'm missing something in which case apologies!).

so that makes four of us booked for Llandow then, Neil (nelmo) will go too so it should be great.
Don't tell Kev though, he'll want to book a club pitch!

Also, do CKC actually check if yr a subscriber or not?


More challenging than you might think and yes, they will know if you are a subscriber or not. It was always a good laugh

You're right Jeff. I enojyed my passenger laps in your Phoenix. Impressive getting wheel spin in 3rd as we hopped over the small bump midway down the straight.
