Thats me just fueling the car etc.
If anyone is about at Knockhill, just give me a shout if you would like some pax laps (it's the scrappy looking Gun metal Grey 5).
I'll post some pics once my mates bring them into work.

Cheers

It was good spectator action. MarkS drifting round the hairpin was fantastic to watch. Geordie Mark's progress tound the hairpin was just as exciting at times, especially when he lost it completely (I'll spare him the embarrassing photo :P )

The best of my snaps below:

yes, it could be said that i got the line 'slightly wrong' on that one - i ended up facing the wrong direction in the middle of the grassy area and had to be pushed out of the mud by the marshalls !

fantastic fun though, can't wait for the next one.

Cool pics :D cheers

The guy that I thought was gonna be taking pics, didn't bring his camera :(
So I'm happy to blag some pics from you :-)

Good to see yous, sorry I didn't talk for too long, was instructing my Pupil, he's got an MR2 Turbo to tame (next year probably) and he needed the lessons.
But he made good improvement & followed my instructions.
Got the lines sorted, and entry speed down, so fast out instead of fast in.
We were just starting to work on later & harder braking, when our last chance to get out was scuppered by an errant Fiesta ST :-)

Hope to see you's at the next one

Apart from the 8 red flags :shock: , it looked like a good session.

I went a bit mad with the camera and took 982 photos. I've uploaded the 600 odd that weren't out of focus ....

Must be great clearing up the track after these events ...

"Go on - it's your turn .... get your **** down to the hairpin and get all that rubber off the road - the Cillit Bang is on the shelf, and the brush is near the door !

"But there's two Lotus Exiges and a 911 out there !! "

"You'll be fine - there's a minute between each one" ....
