Brands Hatch - 8th December
11/12/2008
\"\"The top event of the day was the presentation of a crystal trophy, photograph and individual’s donations to our Chairman, Dave Livingstone. Dave started MGoT five years ago with a few friends as a way of getting on track at a reasonable cost. Since then it has grown to well over 1000 registered members and runs around 12 track days per year - still on a not for profit basis. Dave continues to be the mainstay of MGoT, working tirelessly to develop, its ongoing programme and trying to keep us all under control. Well done Dave - you\\'ve brought great pleasure to a lot of MG owners. Every one of us who experience the thrill on track with MGoT has a great deal to thank you for. Thanks to Stu, Dick and Martin for the secret organisation, trophy and photo.

As for the rest of the day; a dry but frosty start had us all pussy footing around the track. Salt had been spread on the track before the first session so after the first few laps of working in, the frost had gone but the track remained somewhat damp and slippy. By the third session set, the track was dry on line, allowing more fun on the corners and getting that much needed heat into the tyres. Attention to braking zone and turn in point was important lest you found yourself drifting off line into decidedly uncertain territory. Nevertheless, only one person found his way onto the beach at the exit of Paddock Hill. Well done all including our first timers for your excellent driving.
