I'm afraid the digital technology available to me is waaaaay below what is necessary to get racing action photos. I deleted twice as many as these. The delay between pressing the shutter and getting your picture is just pants. By the time I got the shot of the vx, hypothermia was setting in anyway!

Like Greame, styruggled getting action shpots, even at the hairpin. Did get a few useable mpegs though.

All in all a good night despite the bitter cold and rain.

Maybe take mine on next time ?

Thanks Douglas - a great evening and my first time on a wet track..... ?8O(

Thanks Douglas for all the effort of organising this.  Really appreciated the pace car and thoroughly enjoyed it.  The rain really didn't spoil things at all.

As a Knockhill virgin, (well you know what I mean!) I enjoyed being given the opportunity to drive round the track behind the pace car. It gave me sufficient confidence to have another go later on while the track was quiet and the rain still light. It was great. I thoroughly enjoyed it. So, many thanks to Douglas for organising it so well.

We braved the cold cold weather to go up and stayed for a wee while watching the cars go round the track.  The spinning was pretty cool by the Exiges, and the MX-5's exhaust notes were lovely to hear.  Who has the red MX with twin exhaust, one either side - we want one please!  Where did you get it please?

Mk1 red with twin pipes was Mino's, Mk2.5 with twin pipes belonged to Lazza from London, you can read more about his car in this month's (July edition)EVO magazine.

Thanks Douglas, hubby's just bought the EVO mag, having a look now. Will speak to Mino when we next meet up.
