    Thanks to the organisers for a fantastic evening! This was my fourth track day (3rd in the MGB GT) and was by far the most fun. Silverstone GP was awesome just because it was the Silverstone GP circuit, driving in the wheel tracks of all the greats, but Brands Hatch Indy has been the most fun to drive; Paddock Hill Bend put a huge grin on my face every time :D

    Small, but perfectly formed - Brand's never fails to impress :) Any chance you'd put pen to paper and compare your experiences of the circuits? I always need such stories for our regular Safety Fast magazine column.

    Regards,

    Dave

    Just to echo Strobe... Thanks to Martin C for organising this event... Only wish I could have enjoyed a bit more of it :rolleyes:

    Strobe quoted "Paddock Hill Bend put a huge grin on my face every time"... Me too mate :eek:

    Fantastic. My first ever track day and I'll have a smile on my face for a week. My brakes are toast but who cares.
    I'd forgotten what a great bunch of guys MG enthusiasts are. I was enormously impressed with the organisation, the warm welcome, the impeccable track etiquette (Hope I didn't do anything to annoy anyone) and the general camaradarie and good humour surrounding the whole event.
    Thanks to everyone who took part for a great evening out.

    P.S Got to love that Old English White RV8.;)

    Glad you all had a good time.

    Well done Martin for organising it during a very busy week in your work calendar :)

    A big thanks to Martin for organising the evening. I think that my co-driver has become a trackday convert. She's now looking for a suitable car for a future event.

    Glad you enjoyed it Martin, lovely V8 roadster you've got and look forward to seeing you again soon.

    Hi Craig,
    Now you know why I called it "our visit to the Indy roller coaster" people have no idea what it really looks like from in car. From trackside it doesn't look that daunting, but in car it is Wey-hey! I love it too:D

    Hi Ralph,
    It was good to see you out with us again:D

    Rebbeca has indeed been converted, she registered as a member today:)

    I suppose if anybody can find her a car it will be you ;)

    Yep i did, although im Bob not Rebecca (or Rebbeca) :)

    I was thinking of getting the green monty turbo back i gave Ralph, its had the engine done (pretty much re-built) and would just need the brakes and suspension doing as its already gotten decent alloys and tyres on. Oh and maybe a very small amount of welding :eek:

    Appologis to everyone for going so slowly, as i had my first time on track in a car i have only driven once before and is completely different to my car (im used to a maestro diesel).

    Hi Bob,

    Welcome to MGoT, you'll get another one via e-mail at the weekend when I catch up with new registrations ;)

    A Monty Turbo, that would be fun, torque steer and all, I'm a big fan of the 80's triple M's.

    No need to apologise, the whole idea of track days is to have some fun at a pace you are comfortable with :D . The Brands evening was a tricky one, all levels of experience and cars, in the one session. On a normal day with three or four sessions you would be in a first timer/novice - low power cars (although Ralph's 200bhp turbo Rover 400 doesn't quite fit that bit:eek: ) group, so everybody's pace would be more evenly matched.

    Look forward to seeing again soon.
