Never been asked for them before, no harm if you have them with you.

9th Jun 2006 18:44 :: Douglas
There is one rule they may apply, in that arms should be covered in open top cars, in view of today's weather thought it worth mentioning.

Wouldn't worry about sunburn too much, the East Coast Haar is hanging about ominously, it may even make it as far inland as Knockhill so bring something warm to wear too.

Does the rule about covered arms extend to covered legs?? will brind some long trousers with just in case.

Brilliant night, considerate driving and good fun, unless you're in a Focus. Scarey!

V.Pleased with the new car, seemed to go ok. SC maybe?

What a great night!  I've uploaded loads of pics to a photobucket account. I can't put a link here but will put one in the general forum.

10th Jun 2006 05:42 :: Fee
Actually, make that the motorsport forum, makes more sense.

some well driven non-FI,d  5,s there too.
Happy that mine never missed a beat (except when it it was bouncing off the limiter)

AMAZING almost as good as watching ENGLAND qualify for the world cup (just kidding!) Learnt a hell of a lot more about my car tonight especially after Si thrashed the pants off it! Scary but true. Thanks to Douglas and the guys for organising such a great evening more of the same please.

Out of interest/curiosity,did / was anyone taking lap times?

10th Jun 2006 14:37 :: Gordon & Janice
That was fun!!!

Thanks to Douglas for organising this, can't wait for the next one.

10th Jun 2006 15:13 :: Gordon & Janice
I timed one of Andrew's laps at 1min 18.5 if that helps any.

10th Jun 2006 17:02 :: Tom
What a night !
I'm still on a high this morning.

Great photos Fee!, Barbara's didn't turn out too well.

Thanks to everyone that took Steph out. (her old man wasn't quick enough, apparently).

An enormous thanks to Douglas for all the organising.

What a fabulous night!!!

Thanks to Douglas for organising the ultimate 5 night - brilliant weather, poeple but the 5s stole the show!

The track tuition paid off with smoother faster cornering helping me catch much faster cars.

An event NOT to be missed. Can't wait until next year to do it all again.

11th Jun 2006 03:05 :: Lorraine
Yes, thanks to all those there for making the night one to remember. I seem to have rather sore triceps today- too much hanging on for grim death -might have been worse had I keep my eyes open for longer!!
£55 well spent indeed! Thanks to you chaps for organising it all.

11th Jun 2006 20:06 :: Gavin
Yes, great night, good weather and considerate driving. Saving up for new tyres now. The Michelins on the Mk3 are c@$p

12th Jun 2006 03:10 :: June
Thanks to everyone who took Paul & I out as passengers, Paul didn't shut up about it the whole way home!!!
Special thanks to Boydie for that wee stunt he pulled on the hairpin!!!!

12th Jun 2006 14:43 :: Mikey

Was a really good night even though I never took part =(....hopefully next time =)

Great evening, thanks to Douglas for organising the event and to Jim, John and Tom for the passenger laps.

12th Jun 2006 20:53 :: Skarecrow
Thanks to Douglas for a great night, sorry we couldn't make it along for a bit to eat afterwards but I waited with Colin of a while, AA truck picked him up at about 9:45 pm. My best lap was 1:14.5, not bad for a stock 1600cc

12th Jun 2006 21:52 :: Si
Thanks again Douglas for yet another fantastic track session. 

Not as good as the last session, but only because I didn't have my MX-5 :-(  The Clio was better than I expected through the corners, but didn't feel quite as positive as the 5.  The Clio also had too much power as it was destroying everything on the straights which meant that I didn't have any "tussles" with other participants.

Best discipline/etiquite I've ever seen at a track day so thanks to everyone for that also!


12th Jun 2006 23:43 :: kevham
A great night. Great track discipline. Si Fraser as quick as ever (even in a Clio !!!).  Great to see the Mk3 owners bravely tracking their new cars.
Anyone else signed up for Dreadnought nights in August/September???? If so, I'll see you there.

13th Jun 2006 00:00 :: Douglas
Many thanks to everyone for making the night the success it was, Plaudits again from Knockhill Marshalls and Staff. Thanks Fiona and Gordon for getting the pictures posted, look forward to seeing the video footage.
report will be posted shortly.

Sorry I\'m a bit late adding my thanks- great session well organised and my first event, what a baptism!  Well done to Fee for the pix- mine didn\'t come out too well.
PS- rockdoc- is FI forced induction?

14th Jun 2006 05:36 :: rockdoc
Pete FI - Certainly is FORCED INDUCTION- was you thinking it was sumthin else ;)

16th Jun 2006 04:14 :: Pete
Thanks Rockdoc- yes my mind was racing with all sorts of suggestions!
