Looks like only me then :( - I'll be the lonely silver Mk2.5 at the hairpin car park.

I was up there on Sunday in BRG Mk1 parked down near the first bend. I saw another BRG there, a Mk3 and a merlot coloured Mk1.

Unfortunately I didn't get up until after lunch and ended up taking another car, not the Mazda :oops: . Racing was OK, pity about the rain. Still I got lots of pictures of cars spinning at the hairpin. :)

I can't make the Rallycross next weekend so the next event for me is the British GT Championship on 8th & 9th May. Always a great show :D

Here are some of my pics, not that great, but they got better towards the end when a friend gave me a lesson on aperture ;)

The Merlot with the hardtop was me. :D

Saw your BRG at Duffus as I was driving around to the hairpin carpark - got parked in among the Fiesta ST OC :mrgreen:

It was a bit cold though, even by Knockhill standards. Hope its warmer for the next one. Nice to see some big grids in most classes.

I saw you driving around at the hairpin then later saw it parked behind the grandstand. The weather was bitterly cold and wet and my choice in jacket for the day can only be classed as 'inappropriate'!

You've got some great pics there. Yes the use of a large apperature gives a great effect of speed by blurring the background. I see that, like me, you find the Historic's and the Sports classes the most interesting.

Yes I always have to remember to add a 'Knockhill' factor to my clothing, which usually means doubling the number of layers :)

The BRG MX5 looked very nice! I was parked just opposite you in my Astra.
