a great day oot !!

:D Who's a happy bunny then ? me !! my son and his wife gave me a a"Legends track day " for Knockhill racing circuit for my birthday present in January.
Managed to there today,what a fantastic day out,all very slick and very enjoyable,briefing good,very surprised how rapid the Seat Leon was, bags of torque,pulled away in most corners in 4th gear !!
Anyway once the instuctors had done there bit it was time to go and play,My instructor Andrew, went over the controls in the Yamaha powered Racing Legend single seat car,buckled me up,told me a few rules, then it was out to play,seven laps of pure fun, on a very dry track grip was great but, still managed to have several rear wheel,sideways,controlled drifts, but all over too quickly !!!!
Then back into the pits grinning like a cheshire cat,spoke briefly to Andrew again and then back out for another seven laps of sheer unadulterated fun.Highly reccomend to all.
Jen managed to get several photo's as I drove (quickly) past !! I have ordered the official Knockhill photos and will recieve them next week.
A totally brilliant day out !!

Glad you enjoyed your day Tom, but surely it can't compare to mine. Lidls and Morrisons in the morning, gardening in the afternoon. Superb :wink:

I can see the attraction Tom definitely much hotter than Knockhill will be. Hope you both have a brilliant Holiday.
