Cadwell - Thank You Members

My, new to me, orange R400, broke down at the track day yesterday. I just wanted to say thank you to all members who lent me multi-meters, battery and their time, you know who you are (as I don't know names).

I certainly did not feel on my own with the problems, wonderful club spirit.

Yes, I agree.  Thanks to all for such a fantastic day.  The Caterham which was for sale, is no longer for sale.

Apologies for those who I didn't say bye to, you were all on the track and I was watching time tick down for my journey home. Hope you all enjoyed the last session.  I ended up doing most of the M25 in the dark ... which I can confirm, was not a lot of fun.  It was totally worth it though.  Great day, great club.

Matt (Yellow 310S, self built ...).

I second! - a super day and brilliant camaraderie from fellow members. My day was rescued by Matt and Tony when I turned up with shot tyres!

Many thanks to all

Thanks to Dave and Simon for organising such a brilliant day. I had a fantastic time but must apologise for the yellow flag I caused when my talent ran out at Charlies. Also thanks to Marvin for showing me that it's not all about horsepower, I obviously need slicks next plus some driving lessons. Hopefully everyone got home safe. See you next year.

Totally agree Marvin, a superb day - thank you also to Simon and Dave, both for support pre and on the day. 
 

Being only my second track day and first time at Cadwell it was a superb experience - and I learnt A LOT!
 

But I must to apologise for the red flag I caused when my ambition outweighed my talent at the bottom of Mansfield, collecting the turn in cone marker approach to the Mountain - plus some Armco barrier paint. Thankfully the damage was more to my pride, than my pride and joy :D

Was great to be in a Caterham filled paddock, meeting new faces - albeit no more than 6 at a time (noted Simon)

Looking forward to the next one.

To cut an increasingly long story short Dave, I'm confident that it was leaking coolant getting into the alternator/electrics. Next morning, after the paid for recovery vehicle ride home, with a charged battery, car started as though there had never been an issue!

I have to thank the Cadwell Circuit recovery crew for taking on the job of getting me and the car home. While a lot more expensive than the initially planned tank of Caterham fuel, it could have been worse, I could have been at Anglesey, twice as far from home Yes
