    Re: Buxton GP Weekend 25th/26th/27th April 2003

    Good weekend everybody! Enjoyed the drive - wasn't left behind cos of lack of speed which is cool, thought I was going to be a girly wuss, but managed to get a nice slide or two ( [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] ) on some of the corners.

    Just got to get out of the habit of being in the wrong gear coming out of corners (must remember that 2nd is there!!!!) Too used to the wide bends here that just need third a lot of the time!

    Good to put some faces to names - actually thinking of going up for the odd weekend myself for some more driving, if anybody is interested in an impromptu weekend!

    Perfect weather really in the end - not really hard rain but enough drizzle to keep the bikes at bay, and enough cloud to make it difficult for any potential choppers!

    Next time thinking of printing the route, and the GUIDELINES for drivers (thinking of those drivers who did dodgy overtaking manouvers.......)

    Re: Buxton GP Weekend 25th/26th/27th April 2003

    Hiya everyone,

    Finally managed to get online from this F'in hotel in London (K-West).

    Like the pics in the gallery. Tons of 'em!!

    Regarding route plans. I was going to do this this time, but didn't have time. In the past, Buxton 2002 No:1 I did a route guide, but no one followed it. This was a turn-by-turn jobby, I'll try to find a compromise for next time. But to be honest Jo, we did well, we didn't loose anyone for long, and if I'd slowed down much more I wouldn't have enjoyed the drive myself. There were quite a few sections were Me and Julian or Me and David did slow right down to an embarassingly slow pace in order to let the field catch up. I did my best, and I thought it wasn't too bad, all-in-all. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Roll-on the next Scottish meet. Makes Buxton look like a practice/qualifying session. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Thanks for the thought Audi Girl - and Christian too - I got hauled into a game of cricket which lasted only a few overs before the inevitable deluge. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif[/img] I spent the rest of the time in a pavilion changing room ruing the missed opportunity to test out the quattro and listening to agricultural workers boasting about their uncontrolled bowel movements following copious pints of lager.

    Sounds like Moff's gf had her first lesson as an air hostess too...

    I thought you were quick. I am still a bit soft on corners (gathering experience!) so you were quicker there than me (straight lines are different - I love those ponies !!)

    Have to agreee, I thought Christian managed to hustle his Golf around at an amzing pace. When I was following behind him, he was going through some bends easily faster than me, and it took the straights to catch [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/devil.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]
