    Hi John,
    Glad you and your daughter enjoyed the day out, all our events are run in the same relaxed and friendly manner we hope.

    If you thought the parade laps were great fun, your North Weald will be :) and your first proper track day will be :D So look forward to seeing you at North Weald.

    Incidently the pararde laps raised over £400 for local charities, so thanks go to all those tracksters who gave up some of their track time to allow it to happen.

    Also thank you to all those who took part in the parade laps, we hope everybody enjoyed it and we were delighted to be able to help the local MG Owners Club branch led by Andy Harris in running this during our day. :D

    It was a great day considering the changeable weather, I thought the whole day went very smoothly, well done to all concerned. This was my youngest daughters first time in a track car and she loved it! She never realised how quick my car was! :) At least my clutch survived the day and got me home, was slipping everytime I was exiting the chicane but the car did me proud. One thing I learned that day was the level of wet weather grip my tyres gave me! A little twitchy at times! Had some fun with one of the 260's ;)

    My first trackday at Goodwood really enjoyed it:), can see why Goodwood sells out so quickly! Glad it didn,t rain all day although track was wet most of the day. Did some filming on the day:

    Not sure i was getting all the lines/gears right although the cones did help, any advice appreciated! What gear do most people use through the chicane 2nd or 3rd?

    Hi Colin,
    Glad you enjoyed Goodwood, I think it is awsome:D It is of course the only circuit in the country which is exactly the same layout as it was in its heyday as a racing circuit in the 1950's and 1960's.

    As to your comment above I can only say one thing really.................
    INSTRUCTION or better still COACHING, it is the performance bargain for track driving ;)
