That should theoretically put you at the A34/M40 junction (J9) sometime around 7am?

I'll have to time my run up from Didcot to join the M40 at roughly the same time :D
I wouldn't assume anything knowing my time keeping!

Car is ready to Rock, droplinks all sorted, exhaust turbo gasket changed, washed, polished and waxed. It's been a busy week but cannot wait to get to Silverstone :D

For those of you on the M6/M1 in the morning look out for a Cosmos in your mirror... Woohooo :)

Argh! I'm about 7 miles away but the turbo oil return line has split!!

No Silverstone for me. The car is going back to JD Modified who modified that hose when they fitted the exhaust manifold. :crybaby:

Awesome day Jay, thanks for organising. When's the next one? :D

3 miles out Silverstone she started boosting normally with no noise, so I'm completely mystified now...

We'll definitely be doing another one, the staff at Silverstone were so helpful and friendly... A great day out....

No idea on your turbo mate, that definitely sounded like the impellers hitting the casing. May well be worth talking to Nathan bud... Glad it's Ok to get you home though :th:

Set up a photo thread with Erin's snaps in. Feel free to add to it :th:

Was great to meet everyone and be welcomed so kindly. :th:

Thanks for organising this Jay, absolutely loved it out there! :yahoo:

Was a bit of an early start and took 3.5 hours to get home! :ranting1: but it was so worth it for that time on the track. I seemed to learn quite a bit about the car and give some of the turbos a run for there money :bleh:

Definitely sign me up for it again, WHEN we do another session! ;) was great fun.
