- Caught speeding today 130mph+
I once watched WCA drive some sort of Japanese screaming thing up to the YHA car park at Holmbury at about 45 mph. With two bikes hanging out of the boot.
If you’ve parked at the YHA for a ride in the North Downs, then you’ll understand exactly what this will do to your car.Posted 4 years agofootflapsSubscriber
I hate to think what a new set of discs and pads will cost…..Posted 4 years agociderinsportMember
I woke this morning and thought about my day ahead….
A trip out with worldclassaccident in a 600bhp car on wet roads…. what could possibly go wrong!!
Well, surprisingly nothing did! I lived!
That car is the monkeys nuts :-). It just makes you smile!
The music… (OK, Jenifer rush isn’t to everyone’s liking!)
And of course the chat… (Between accelerations!!)
The downside – when offered a drive, I had to decline due to not being insured… 🙁
WCA – I’m still giggling like a girl! Thanks for the trip.Posted 4 years agoti_pin_manMember
Last Friday I did a Porsche track day at Silverstone and spent half a day flying around the corners as fast as I dared, it was just awesome but they wouldnt let me drive the GT4 they had, aparently the new owner wouldnt like it, boooo, hissss. still just amazing. but i think anything with an engine quickly become expensive and would bankrupt me. back to bikes.Posted 4 years agototalshellSubscriber
whats with the hard ons for track days.. why not use race tracks for what they were intended..
then you ll quickly realise two things.. fast cars are easy to drive at sub race speeds, slow cars need much more ability to drive at speed and that your most likely to be not a fast driver of either especially the former..Posted 4 years agoepicsteveMember
It has lots of airbags and does 27mpg – these aren’t reasons I like it but they were mentioned earlier.
27mpg! That sounds a little unlikely unless it’s what you get tootling along at 60mph. My Merc is only a little 2.5V6 and I average 20-21mpg with that. The only times it sees better than 27mpg is on motorway runs at moderate speed.Posted 4 years agojimsterMember
Those Morgan’s do look fun – trouble is at weekend’s the factory has “open” days where you get to pay a fee and drive a Morgan around, the road by us becomes more of a racetrack than at 5pm when everyone’s knocking off! 😯
They do one in a Ford GT40 Gulf paintjob – very classy indeed. 8)Posted 4 years ago
epicsteve – This picture is from the one I am selling (CL500 – https://mercedesclforsale.wordpress.com/) after a trip along the M4 . I will try and get one of the new car next time I do a reasonable distance and am not playing.
Brakes – Not really my look. I am normally somewhere between these two

Drove an R8 briefly on a soaked track yesterday, The thing is a complete animal. Despite it hammering down I touched 100 down a tiny straight and blitzed a f430 from a hairpin, it cornered perfectly the 4 wheel drive system made everything so smooth – What a car. I’ve since spent the time looking for somewhere that does a longer track day, more than 2 laps. Can anyone help?Posted 4 years agoFortunateson09Member

Have a look on Book A Track or Javelin – you can rent an MX5 with Javelin or an R300 with BAT if you’ve got the plums. Plenty fast enough…Posted 4 years ago
