    I really enjoyed my day at Goodwood, it is 2 years since I was on track here and I'd forgotten what a challenge it is.

    That challenge was made even more interesting because of the wet, but even more so for me because it was the first time I'd driven my new toy in anger. Some of you will recognise it,


    Yes it is Trevor Leighton's superb 1999 VVC F that he has improved and updated over the last 13 years he has owned his "Baby". It is a real pleasure and honour to become the new custodian of this car and I look forward to many years of fun in her.:D

    Trevor presents me with keys,


    It is going to be a lot more of a challenge to master than the ZS, which I am also keeping :)

    A good buy Martin....Enjoy!!

    We could be in danger of becoming called MGFs on Track!

    I'll make you eat your words though the first time you spin... after having the luxury of being 'pulled' out of corners for so long. :D

    Ah! Steve,

    As I learn the characteristics of the car and get the suspension set up to my liking I expect one or two spins. The difference, I hope, is that I won't keep repeating the experience ;)

    However, if as you put it, I keep having the luxury of spining out then not only will I eat humble pie, but my hat as well! :eek:

    Hi Gary,
    Good to hear from you old mate.

    >>Did you run Trevor home after receiving the keys ????<< - No I made him walk back ;)

    >>And what style of hat do you wear ???? << - A big floppy felt one :eek:

    >>C U at Brands<< - Unfortunately I've had to cancel my place due to an unforeseen family commitment at the time I booked it :(

    Take care old mate and best regards to Dee

    I was told once by a Formula 3 driver... "If you don't spin You ain't trying !" ;)
