I have just let the admin team know that I can't attend Donington, so it may be worth giving them a bell...

Thx.  I have contacted Lucy but I expect they have an ordered reserve list, I don't know where I am on it!

Wondering if we have garages?

The final instructions mention garages 1-12, with 12 used by the L7 Club admin team. 

However it also says 1 car per garage which seems slightly crazy for Caterham's.

Well it turned out to be wet day although hugely enjoyable as always. Nice to meet Rob O and a few others. Big thanks for Simon, James and the L7C for a great day.

Another ( generally ) good day , not sure about the weather though ......

Thanks Simon and James , Get well soon Dave .

Apologies from me for disrupting the last session in the morning with my excursion onto the beach .

In my defence i would say that the recovery truck driver might have made a better decision if he had tried to pull me out the way i went in. As it was his attempt to pull me diagonally at a random oblique angle only succeeded in making matters far worse and creating the lengthy delay .

I've done my bit for club funds by donating £185.00, spending 10 mins sat in the pit lane awaiting sighting laps, then 6 hours trying to fathom out an infuriating electrical problem. FAIL - despite most welcome help from various friends on site

only track time was an excellent session as a passenger with Rob Grigsby in his 250hp Duratec - witnessing some wonderful car control.

first track fail for the Blackbird

but great to catch up with folks

Great day out, my first track day for a few years. Lots of fun in the wet with way too much power and 7 year old CR500's making things quite interesting. At least that's my excuse as to why I couldn't keep up with Rob O in his academy car when the rain came down!

I've got some onboard footage which I'll post as soon as it's uploaded, every time I go anywhere near the throttle the car starts moving around, certainly not the quickest way around the circuit.

Glad you enjoyed the passenger ride Rog, hope you get the blackbird up and running again soon.

And now it's ready, sorry about the audio trying a new camera setup and forgot to bring an external mic.

It does kind of look like I'm just tooling around on a Sunday afternoon drive but I can assure you that's not what is happening :)

A very wet day meant me tiptoeing around as I'm still not confident with the car on track in those conditions.  Hopefully I didn't hold anyone up too much!

Good to meet some members in real life, suitably socially distanced of course!

Midlife crisis begun....
