    Wes - Tris and Stu etc. etc. from SC.net were supposed to be going but ended up pulling out. Tris is skint and Stu's Cordy is still in bits. Mark (Mork) and Ian from Lincolnshire with a big turbo Ibiza 1.8T are coming down.

    There are a dozen of the Seat guys going to the Performance VW track day at Brands on Friday 7th Dec (me, Tris and Stu included) Stu is hoping to have his car sorted by then.

    I only just remembered that it's the local derby on Sunday, Birmingham vs Aston Villa! What time is every that I know getting there for? I might turn up early for a few hours, then shoot off at 12ish to watch the match. :footy:

    Phew!

    My 356 would be the first thing I'd save if it ever looked like my place was going to flood.

    Hope your mate manages to get sorted - not a nice thing to happen especially with winter on the way.

    I missed it also mate, I was out til 4am at a mates house warming party, didn't get up until around 11ish, which was too late for me to trek up for a few hours, as I had work in the afternoon.

    No problems. It was 'fun' shall we say. In the morning, the sessions went approximately as follows:
    2 laps, someone spins off, track closed for 10 mins whilst they are recovered, track opens for another 5 mins, then end of session. I have to admit I span off twice into the gravel - first time I managed to keep enough momentum to get out of the gravel. Second time I was about 30 foot into it at Craner Curves so no chance of getting out.

    It had dried off after lunch so three full fast sessions.

    Was really quiet compared to last time I was there. The intermediate session was reasonably full, but there were only 5 cars in the advanced session.

    I didn't make it either. Car is still not setup properly and noticed that most of the guys from Seatcupra.net had dropped out. Sorry - I hate letting people down. The next one I will be there.
