Went to Donnington Park yesterday. Marvin Hall came along to take pics and some are stunning IMO.

Looks great. Would like to do Donnington (grew up nearby) some time. How did the car go?

The car is fabulous but the tyres go off quickly. They get too hot and go off. The performance is awesome. Down the back straight there is dip; in the Ulima the car goes light :? :o

The excelleration has to be felt to be believed. It is quick on half throttle, plant it and flux capacitor :shock: :shock: :shock: :D

I did 20/25 laps in the Caterham to finish the day and really enjoyed the 175 bhp as the caterham is nearer my level of ability. I am much nearer the limit :oops:

A bit more practice in the Ultima, a temporature gauge and tyre pump might be the order of the day. :D :D

I had a great weekend and enjoyed the track day. When I got home I was knackered too. I had an early night and sleeped in this morning.
