Myself, Gareth and Smiles are all taking our mx5s up to knockhill tomorrow night, anyone else coming along ? Look out for 3 x red mk1s, definitely no racing allowed :)

Was a good laugh. can't wait to see the pics.

The videos are being a nightmare - I won't be shooting in 1080p again.

that was probably one of the best sessions I've had for a while, the car was behaving well and I managed to keep it on the tarmac most of the time. driving standards were pretty good from most of the other participants, just a couple of guys who held everyone up in the corners (mr red 911 - please look in your mirrors occasionally)

thanks to Dave (Zebedee) for taking such great pics, so often it's only the fancy stuff that gets the attention and our little mx5s are ignored.

if you bring your helmet along to the next session, you are most welcome to jump in the passenger seat, I suspect with your biker background, you will be instantly hooked.

Thanks. Trouble is I dont want to get hooked :D Spending enough at the moment keeping it on the road.

But if Im free next time I will bring a helmet, make sure I dont enjoy it too much.

Excellent pics there Zebedee.

I know what you mean about fear of getting hooked - I'm in kind of the same mind.

Nice one Zebedee. I'll have to show the wife them. Would you mind if I downloaded them to put up on Facebook. Quite understand if you'd rather I didn't, thats why I asked.

I second what Mark says, quite happy to take you round if you bring a lid along.

Here are the videos I got from last night.
