    Without wanting to say the words "yeah, I'm going to this" (I'm a little paranoid about jinxing things atm - someone will drop an axle-stand on my bonnet again); you know what I'm driving at...

    Ummmm... Probab lysee yo uthere ;)

    I hasten to add that unless I strip my car and find a cheap jet engine on eBay, I'll be spectating only!

    Yes its addictive but at the pod you pay twelve quid I think but you can run up the strip all day rather than fiver a pop

    This guy wasn't afraid of frying his clutch, giving it ~5-6000rpm launches off the line - fair play!! Not sure what times he was getting.....

    Again... Gutted I didn't get there :(

    Car not to blame this time though... Work... Did an unplanned 12:30 - 00:30 on Sunday (thank God for overtime pay!)

    Nice pics; Looks like I missed another good one though, regardless of the wind/damp...

    I wonder if it'll be Work that stops me getting to E38... *Looks at clock*... 04:25... I don't want to be making a habit of this!

    Regards,

    Rob.

    Best time was only a 15.4

    Am pretty sure i can go faster but am still getting used to the launches and was not pushing it after last time when i loosened everything underneath and had to take her to the garage after Bruntingthorpe to get everything tightened back up!!!
