Don't know where you got that? Very strict. Last time a guy in a 5 got black flagged and sent out with an instructor as they wher not happy with his car control even though he had caused no problems.

Overtaking on railway straight and approach to Clark only, and then only if the car infront moves off line

Was indeed a great day yesterday, four hour stint makes it a relaxed affair although some of the other cars were a bit daunting...
XJR15 ps..wing walker was there to keep back end down :lol:

We were in good company, Puma to Ferrari

Cracking pictures Douglas... :wink:
It really was a great fun way to spend a sunny Saturday morning too. With it being a four hour stint it gave everyone time to really get to know their cars and the track. With the normal two hour trackday sessions it all seems to be over too soon.
After witnessing the way that all of our 5's managed to tail some serious machinery through the twisties I'm even more impressed by these little cars abilities. The passenger that I'm talking to was the bloke who owned the red Corrado. He was absolutely amazed at how much speed could be carried into and through the corners and promised never to call them hairdressers cars ever again!!! :wink: He agreed that with another 50bhp they would be a seriously quick track car indeed.
I've started saving for a supercharger from today...... (just got to work out how to tell Nic and my daughter that next years holiday is cancelled!) :twisted:

Can't decide if that XJR15 is original or a fake

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaguar_XJR-15

http://www.robinson-race-cars.co.uk/Jaguar%20XJR15.htm

Either way it is rare, 50 made and sold at a million dollars :shock:

this is interesting - http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Jaguar-X ... dZViewItem

US $150,099 - how much is that in real money?

You just gotta love the guy that bid $2508.66 !?

PS I couldn't tell if it was real either....
