Good news, coolant temp sensor replaced and my starting issues have disappeared :D

Hopefully she doesn't have a wobbly before then!

Would you guys and gals mind if I come and tag along for a few hours and take some pictures. My 2 will not be ready anytime soon but it would be good to get back in the fold.

Why don't you look at getting a passenger pass? I'm sure you'd be able to get a ride in our cars

Absolutely turn up! :th:

I'm sure if you picked up a passenger wrist band that you'd be more than welcome to go out in a couple of cars, I certainly don't mind. Also would never say no to getting some photos :)

For sure! Anyone who wants to come along is welcome of course.

Apart from the pit wall, the viewing areas are quite a distance from the track from memory (big grass run off areas everywhere at Snetterton) so a long lens if you have one would be a good idea to keep in the kit bag.

This is quite a good vantage point for pics. :)




That Escort was blitzing everything else out there.

Have just found out it's for sale.
All I need to do now is to lay my hands on a spare £50k...

Waiting on one more reservation, however we have 6 confirmed and payment details given to MSV, so everyone's place is 100% confirmed. If the final reserved space goes unfulfilled they'll just make it a 6 person booking 👍

I've received an email confirmation of the booking so I can only assume everyone has now confirmed their booking - Everyone else got theirs too?

Last one this year I reckon for me, but I'd certainly be up for one spring next year before the prices go up again and racing season means most weekends are not available!

There's also the option of mid week evening sessions in the summer too, done a couple of those and enjoyed them.
