The zs was one of the few cars I didn't go out in... Next time though.

Glad you made it home Andy. Hope you and op aren't suffering too much this morning. Will put up some pictures shortly, once I can gather some.

And on the bright side of things, at least nobody took out any of the cameras.

Will await to see footage of the day and all the epic stuff - does the Zs lock up look impressive?

Super. Fun. Time.

You push it the more you go. First lap was with ry with esp on. Was tame.

By the end the esp was off and I was doing my best to make the dad wagon go ridge racer style.


Awesome.

Not actually sore today. We were lucky enough to go sidways. Could have been very different if it were head on.

Yeah I am feeling fine, as said air bags didn't go so the car didn't class it as a big one.

Its true I got some epic laps in and then just pushed too hard.

I always said I would get revenge for breaking my toilet! :lolz:

Hmmmm

From the moment I picked up your book until I laid it down, I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it.

Not too bad considering, the car is still staight and drives fine.

Just the bumper, cross member and bonnet are screwed (wings may survive).

As said it had a great fix up job with many cable ties and drove home just fine.

That's a relief.
That aside, everyone have a good time?

It was a brilliant day, considering the one or two incidents. That hill climb car was also epic. I'll post up a few pics on here/FB etc. shortly.

I compared my latest videos with last times in-car dc2 turbo footage and on most short laps, I'm 2 seconds quicker in the DC5. Shows you that tyres really can make a difference.

Anyway, was a great day, had muchos fun! Better get booking the next track day event. Suggestions welcome :)
