The forecast looks promising, any last minute takers ? I even gave the car a wash today !

That was another great night, the car performed brilliantly, shame about the driver - I managed an impressive 360 spin at the bottom of duffus, hope someone got it on camera !

While the car was cooling down, Gordon from Haston racing came over to persuade me I should get involved in mx5 racing, he showed me round his track prepped cars and Stuart took me out for a few laps - bloody hell, he gave it the beans ! He was taking corners way quicker than I thought possible, braking at the last second, really flinging the car around. After half a dozen laps with him, I went back out in my own car and got a bit more adventurous with my braking points and corners speeds. A big thankyou to Stuart for showing me how it should be done !

No pics so far but there were some fancy looking cameras around so hopefully some good shots will appear somewhere.


The car is still surprisingly clean so I took a few pics of it myself today

Car is looking immaculate Mark! I was hoping to sneak away from cooking / eating duties, but sadly not to be. Hope to see some more pictures emerging.

TrackScotland have just announced their next event is on saturday 20th April, the bad news is that it is mrs gm's birthday that weekend so I'll need to give that one a miss. Good news is that there is a knockhills own session on thu 25th April and I've got the day off booked already !
