I thought I'd better come out of the shadows and introduce myself. 

Hi Mark Macdonald here (no relation to Peter (that I'm aware of!)). Snetterton will be my first ever track day so it will be me tip toing round the edges trying not to upset anyone and hoping the old girl holds together. It will be the first outing for my 1500 midget aswell, which I bought on my 17th birthday (27 years ago), sold a couple of years later and re bought when I was 30 and barn stored. 

Dragged out of storage in late 2022, she has undergone a complete strip down and re build (not by my hands) and had her first outing on the roads last week. A few teething problems but fingers crossed all should be well. I look forward to meeting you all next week. I'll be the middle aged man with a bad back trying to squeeze himself into the old English white midget (it was hard enough before it had a roll cage)

Dear Mark,

Many thanks for introducing yourself and for the photo....I'll keep a watch for you coming up behind me.
Always a bit of a challenge to enter and exit a Midget, but at least the roll cage will give us something to lever against should you need assistance!

See you at the track,

Hi Duncan. Just confirm I will need feeding at the Premier Inn so please book a table for us....I'm happy with whatever time you arrange. I'm sure Rene will be just as flexible on times...

Hi Mark, Look forward to meeting you and your Midget. If the "old girl" doesn't hold together there will be plenty of help and advice at hand, if not I always bring a roll of duct tape with me! Cheers, Richard

Hi All.  My name is Colin and I am just introducing myself.  I've done two novice track days before, the first one I was towed in from the Bentley Straight not to reappear and the second one ended abruptly in torrential rain.  I have a 1275 Midget acquired in a swap for two interior doors, value about £30!!  I have built it up myself over 15 years and it's been on the road for the last five years.  Looking forward to meeting you all.
