Nice one. I'm trying to make it to this but going to see how things are after a trip to the ring next week. With the way my brakes have gone in the past after a trackday I don't have my hopes up haha.

I'll be there either way though. Few mates are heading down so I'll be shotgun with somebody. Will come over for a news and maybe a px lap

Cheers,for sure,had all mdm,t.c switched off in my car,do need to try tame the beast,Im going to fit Pilot Sport Cups as I need new tyres.to be fair,my mate turned all the gadgets off in the Gtr,but gearbox temps went high very quickly,so had to switch them on,his first trackday in the Gtr,fun as well,but he certainly wasn't doing handstands over it,still a very quick car out of the showroom,3 seconds up the road from my 1M,loved the Bmw experience,my best time round the hill was back at time attack 2008,56.1 in an Evo 8,you go to Knockhill much yourself?
Got the bug back again,would love the 1M turned into a track car,be awesome,defo a chunk of lap time to come!!

Went in the mid to late 90s where i killed a set of brakes on an EVO and then last time was in my old Caterham about 8 years ago. A mate of mine gets me in with the Porsche club which is very respectful of one another. I've had my new Caterham for about 2 yrs now and still not returned, the roads up here are just too good! - next year is on my radar though... Nothing overheats on those and you still get to drive home on the same set of brake pads!

Was an ace day, nice for Knockhill to be dry for a change! Didn't get a chance to have a news with you unfortunately. I was driving my car aswell as hopping in and out of mates car's whilst my car cooled down. Had fun watching you drift the 1M though. Even more so when I was behind you in my mates clio whilst you drifted through the John R Weir chicane .

Some pictures of mine. I did have a GoPro video but forgot to press the record button! Raging.

Sounds good,would try a Caterham for some sprints,they look cool,fancy hiring one at the ring,that would be awesome
