10/10 for bravery. I would be lucky to get past "Duffers!" :shock:

Thats ok paul I had the best time of my life, the adrenalin is still pumping I can't stop talking about it. The mechanic who put all my tyres back together was glad to see me drive away (CHAT TALK CHATTY ), my family have given up on me they are just listening with deaf ears now. Catriona my daughter was with me on my third spin, she said it was better than the waltzers but felt cheated as the car out of action after that.
Great day.
Sorry folks but i will have to do it again.
Thanks kevin,Gavin for your tips or i would not have made it round at all.
Just for the record I did get round a few times without spinning, or did I just dream that.
Brillent :D

I'm glad you enjoyed yourself !!

There is a school of thought that says if you don't spin you're not trying (I'm sure Rockdoc will agree :D )

You had the guts to try it and should be congratulated for that, many didn't !!

hope to see you there again, enjoying your car and finding out how it goes 8)

Annette,
You did great just to be there. I know plenty guys who talk the talk but never give it a go themselves. So well done for plucking up the courage and I'm sorry if I scared you too much before you even started :lol:

"There is a school of thought that says if you don't spin you're not trying (I'm sure Rockdoc will agree " )

Absolutely- no point in taking your 5 for a "sunday drive" round a circuit.
Can do that , well - every sunday :wink:

Just thought this was worth mentioning, since the thread centres around Annette. When you did not appear as expected, amongst those waiting along the pit wall,myself included, every voice was of one strain, which was for your welfare. Not a grain...a hint about anything else. Just so you know! :wink:
