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.
