Another great day on the track.   :thumbsup:

Photo quality and completeness is probably down a bit since I was focused mostly on swapping between 3 different cars throughout the day (the uber.biz Westfield + Lotus Esprit Sport 350 + my own Subaru), but these pics should give you a good idea of the huge variety that was on show again this month.

3 main highlights for me:

1.  The pure bliss of taking the Esprit Sport 350 for a few laps (thanks Al!).
2.  Coming out of a corner to find a bright yellow Pagani Zonda in front of me on the track!
3.  Seeing the gay orange Exige again.    :)

Here's a quick cross-section:

Hell yeah!

Just a pity the Westfield was too hard to handle (only its first outing, so not properly sorted yet).  I parked it after the first session as it was too much hard work!

350 is quite definitely a magical thing. A few of the pro drivers had a gentle lap with me paxing as well and everyone seemed to be getting a bit sentimental about it   :)
C'mon, do it!

I passed the Diablo coming down the main straight! I reckon I had about 25km more speed than him out of the last corner and managed to pass him - just - about 50 metres into the main straight.

There's no way I could have got near him once he started accelerating, and perhaps not a fair contest as they look very hard to drive fast, but fun nonetheless.

Can't believe I missed the morning!   :doh:

That final turn before the straight is make or break, and if you get it right then saves you being stuck behind slower cars for the next lap  :)
C'mon, do it!

You should speak to your boss about your work arrangements.

That final turn before the straight is make or break, and if you get it right then saves you being stuck behind slower cars for the next lap  :)

Or in the case of when I'm driving my WRX, get overtaken on the straight no matter what I do with that turn, and then catch them around the back again.   :thumbsup:

They have a habit of doing that.   :D
