Just waiting to hear back from the wheel specialist about whether my wheel is repairable from Scotlands adventures, if it is then I'm 100% in :D

Would have loved to do this, be great to see a few two's on the track together. Just a bit far from me especially when Oulton Park is only 15 mins away!

My two is only just back on the road, so took it up there earlier this week, need to get it booked on now.

New rear tyres now fitted and wheel should be fixed next week all being well, just a slight buckle that can't be sorted so I'm told.

Car must know its meant to be used for some abuse soon though as it stuttered and died on start up this evening, and is having difficulty starting before running fine.....

I don't think he's taken the 240Z on a HD. ;)

I’m still repairing the Impreza from its last outing at Snetterton. 😂

My advice would be to avoid overheating the brakes, as that’s what I did in the early session. If I’d gone out with a tutor or a more experienced driver I’d have realised I was slowing way too much for the corners and maybe not cooked them.

Other than that, enjoy. It’s a great track, grippy but not too savage on the tyres and its beginner friendly as noted earlier.

MR2, can't risk the 240z on a track day if I'm being honest with myself :blush: (too much at stake to loose)

Really odd, you start it then it dies. Start again and pump the throttle and after some persuasion it finally starts firing but idles at 2k rpm odd before eventually dropping down when I dip the clutch and eventually starts running absolutely fine. Stopped 5 minutes later and it started no problems when I got back.

Not sure if its electrical struggling with auto choke from dead cold or what. Second time in the past week having left the car to sit.... :no:

This bodes well :laughing

I plan on getting tuition as I've never been before and its a long circuit so would likely be guessing myself all over the shop.... :facepalm: Thanks for the pre warning :th:
