Excellent ! I missed that one by being stuck on holiday, mrs GM would not let me come home a day early :D

Have you signed up for 20th August ? I'll be there in my shiny new mk1, can't wait.

It was rather good fun - Best lap time (worked out after the event - No live timing allowed!) was 69.7 secs, and I was pleased to break 70 secs, especially given the fact I hadn't driven KH since 2006 / it was my first time out with the '5. (At least another second to come, once I get brave enough to carry enough speed into Duffus to invoke a slight drift... :wink: )

Dog slow on the straights - VMAX was 91mph on the back straight / 90mph up the pit banana straight.

I'm toying with turbo'ing the car - It's bog standard (bar the big front discs) and I've 95% of the bits lying in the garage to do it - But having a wobble over selling everything and getting another Elise / Caterham or even a nice Mk5 Golf GTi for road use... :oops:

Time will tell - Unfortunately I'm working away on the 20th, but interested to hear how you go! :)

Booked for Oulton Park in November, so looks like I'm keeping it a while longer... :)

Just need to fit the Teins and get it geo'd. Turbo can wait till next year. :wink: :mrgreen:
