Good luck to all taking part ;-)
place your bets....
What? who will be the quickest or who will break first ;-)
i will win who breaks first, my car did'nt even make it off the trailer last year!!!...................lol
sherbet dipdab and a can of irn bru it doesnt break....
ive won the bet lol
my car blew up today whilst we were mapping it on the road, was only a stock engine though thank god
il be taking something different tomorrow only snag is the brakes dont work, and m not joking either lol
ideally people need to get there for around 8.30-8.45
If only I'd noticed this in time! I don't come on here enough lately and thought this was last years thread! but I had a right good time! If it happens again next year I'll be there again! Hopefully with a fresh thread mr bob so I'll see it next time! ;-)
Just got back (only half hour up road from me) all i can say is one hell of a day, such a good laugh and only 1 casualty i believe... Still cant believe my mate in his little suzuki beat all the pulsars(and all cars bar 1 infact) on one of the circuits. Just like to say a big thank you to Bob again for organising this, hopefully he will arrange another one as they are quite popular and its great to meet fellow owners
sorry chris il start a new thread if i organise another next year, funnily enough was talking about your dads 500 abarth and how surprisingly quick that was last year.
ok was a great day and think everyone enjoyed themselves (was better than last year i thought) despite me not getting there along with a few others till after 10o/c due to a huge accident off the m11 roundabout:doh:
pete.....thanks for the pint today and yes your mate was surprisingly quick on that big circuit and he did very well indeed in the swift, just goes to show that its not all about out and out power!
pleased your cars running spot on too
was a bit of a downer for me today as i only had the stock pulsar to bring which had next to no brakes so i certainly wasnt gonna break any track records with that but gave the new engine a good hard hammering and had a lot of fun going sideways, touch wood all seems fine so that needs to be fitted in my trackcar by next thursday and setup along with suspension ready for totb next weekend....so its gonna be a very busy week for me lol.
mine and bens time got equalled today by bens mate in a vx220 so thats 3 of us now all on 48secs, i was talking to the instructor and hes best is 47 so we aint doing too bad i guess.
il hopefully book another of these next year around the same sort of time of year as people seem to enjoy the day and its cheap fun too without all the safety briefing crap you get from full on trackdays.
many thanks to all of you who attended
I've just got back (sadly 3 hours for me) and I'll echo what's already been said. Massive thanks to bob forsorting this out. Me and my brother had an absolute blast, it was brilliantly laid back and I'm glad I've finally been able to see what my r is capable of! I'll definately be up for doing this again whenever regardless of what sort of car I have to bring. It was also great to put a (forum) name to a face. Red Reading, thanks for taking my brother out in your car, it's pretty much all he talked about on the way back! I'm sure there should be a few good photos of the day, so whoever has them, post them up.Highlight of the day for me had to be the barman in the pub we went to for lunch, as camp as a row of tents and asked me if I'd "like to share a big one ", granted he was talking about water but even so!
no problem mark, as a few of you could see my car was a bit of a hand full, after 5 laps on the handling circuit the brand new toyo proxes were wrecked! The car needs a bit more dialing in then we shall see what it can do as it definatley has the go go, to me the most entertaining part of the day was the lad in the green 325 bmw.....very nice driveing and ben in red pulsar and the lad in the swift.
any picture's or video's?
Good stuff ;-)
You doing TOTB?
work is dictating that i can't go to totb stu, i have a few more things to do then i will be there next year as i will book it down..........slicks are a definate now for it and some front suspension parts are being fabricated the car just simply distroys tyres and is still spinning all 4 wheels in 3rd gear.
olliecast has a video in car with me and a lad was taking many picture's, also i will add i am very impressed with ed's mapping as the car is steerable on the throttle, it is a little laggy with thae size of turbo but that can be fixed and will not be a problem on larger track's which the gearing will be more suited.
Sounds a beast?
My car is fine with 400bhp, quick but easy to drive (ish) ;-)
Would of liked to seen your car, Maybe next year if i do TOTB?
Big thanks to Bob for organising everything, excellent day....although it took us over 3 hours to get home-bloody m25!Glad our evo made it there and back in one piece...but we do need new brakes!!Hope everyone had as great a day as we did, was gd to catch up with everyone too.Thanks again bob
Cheers bob, sounds like a plan! I'll see you and some others at totb on the sunday at the end of the month anyway! And u would all be very impressed now with my dads abarth 500, he's got a bigger turbo an mods so running 225bhp, lowered koni's, Toyo r888's and 310mm tarox brakes! Fun on track days! Oh, and I told him about us missing this tonight, he would have come but will be game for next time too! glad you all had fun!
cool....i want to have a chat with you and your dad next week about the fiat if you dont mind chris, il be up on the friday so will see yous next weekend.
kate....glad you and tim enjoyed yourselves, sorry i never got round to speaking to either of you much, the day went way to quick, hope tim let you have a go instead of hogging the toys:lol:
mark...glad you enjoyed yourself and yes the bar bloke was a tad :wuss: think he was after pulsar paul lol
also respect to gtir lee who came down from up north somewhere to watch, thats the third time hes popped down this year to different events trackdays etc.....i wouldnt have knew he was there if he hadnt come over and said hello, he truly is a gtir die hard
