Pretty much! Can't afford mods at the minute for either car so hooning on the odd occasion it is! :)

So on Thursday 23rd June we took Dave for his first all day open pitlane session! 

 

We went to Cadwell Park and took our Dad with us, this was a joint birthday and fathers day present for him to let him drive the track car. 

 

All in all we thoroughly enjoyed the day! Large variety of cars, a few offs and good banter with the other people there.

 

Between us we did 65 laps of the track, it was the most hard work I've ever done for track driving so far, the circuit is narrow, twisty and so intricate in parts! 

 

The car performed so well, took a lot of abuse. We were quick in a straight line but this track really highlighted the handling shortfalls against some of the other cars. Though a couple of Clio's were running slicks! 

 

Thanks to @Jayhoath83 for our latest sticker, VTEC farting unicorn in rainbow vinyl!

Haven't updated this like I should!

 

Basically just a second outing at Cadwell Park.

 

It was a really good day! Dave is a little sore though, cooked the rear discs and pads, split the oil-filled engine mount and split the air intake pipe but all will be sorted for the next outing at Rockingham at the end of March.

Man, banked curve will be awesome! Our local karting track had a banked corner, and even in a kart the experience was amazing. Can pick up so much speed coming off the corner its ace!

Rockingham was great fun at the weekend, worth the 0345 alarm!

 

Dave completed 85 laps of the track all in without fault, used a tank of fuel and 3/4 of another before we called it a day.

 

We were struggling a bit for grip, the tyres kept overheating which I think was because of the speed we were taking the banked curve at!

 

Anyway, a few photos from the day, videos will follow once I've sorted and uploaded them.

Always is an early start, usually have to arrive and register before 8am. When you're towing the car to the track you're never going to get around quickly.
