Well that was a great afternoon. Nice to meet you Matt and thanks for the suggestion.
Apart from a brief blat around the 'ring, this was my first dab at the track and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. As Matt said, it's a good atmosphere without too many track day heroes, and plenty of run off space so risk of damage was minimal. There was one clown who was all over the shop but thankfully he never came anywhere near me.
The instruction was excellent and well worth it. I had a major off into the field with the instructor onboard which shat me up a little, but he assured me i needed to get a few of those under my belt.
My B8 & intrax set up was excellent, and my car felt far less wallowy that the other 2 M5's looked. The super sports on the front took a bit of a hammering but held up well, and the vreds on the back were pretty good too.
I was pleased to get a "no drifting" flag (Matt, I checked the video; that was definitely aimed at me
) for some slightly tail happy cornering.
The turnout of evo cars wasn't amazing, I think there was a v10 R8, an F type and a porsche.
Only got a few pics.
The only action shots I got were of Matt. I couldn't get very close because i got a lecture from the marshall about being too close to the armco. Hopefully I'll be able to get some more off the MSV website once they've been uploaded
Which were in the same place as this M3 CSL came off two weeks ago
But thankfully no such mishaps this time.
