Three cars, six members and one cat having a great day. Looking forward to seeing a few more as we head north. ‎

and here are some dashcam shots of this exiting 2 lap race............

waiting in the pitlane, engines revving ready for the rolling start -

Image

and they're off into the first corner

Image

we'll skip the rest of lap 1 cos it was boring, here we are at the end

Image

lots of excited photographers took advantage of a pause at the start/finish line

Image

this is what happens whem you stand in front of the dashcam

Image

and they're off on lap 2

Image

can dc catch jc up the hill ?

Image

yes, he's going through on the outside !! (we'll ignore the fact that jc's wondering where to park for photos)

Image

coming into the final bend

Image

back in the pits, having missed the finish line

Image

thankfully didnt need the breakdown truck to bring any mangled wrecks back

Image

and safely back in the carpark, hearts hammering with sheer exhilaration

Image

After that bit of nonsense, thanks are owed to jifflemon for loaning James a spare 480 as his is temporarily off the road, so once again we had 3 cars at Knockhill, and this year only 1 was ours ! I shall be sending a huge thank you to the circuit for allowing us to drive it in between their trackday sessions, such a nice bunch of people there.
We met up with alan480 and cranna21 at Cove Bay again, and I came home with a foot rest and a new higher armrest, both provided by the curly bits on a stainless exhaust purchased from Fraser's break which is destined for Snazzy. Fitting it in Sven with all her ladyship's luggage was a bit of a challenge, but we got there. Amazing just how much stuff a cat needs. I was very happy that the exhaust was spotlessly clean, great job, thank you Fraser.
Really good to meet up with 480 friends again, now I really must get cracking on the October meet.

Presumably that was James, but I don't look like mine either. Al and I went on a scientific expedition to Brazil to look for big cats, and my avatar is an ocelot caught on one of our camera traps. Brilliant holiday !
