    Well what a day

    I was expecting to break something to kill the day but in the end what put a stop to my fun was the fuel tank, it ran out . Was a wicked day though and here are some of my pics from the day.

    It was at Bedford Autodrome.

    The car was impeccable all day despite being given 50+ laps. It handled, well I have to be honest, poorly. The turn in was poor and it was very understeery. But it was quick enough to harrass a chap in a Mk4 R32 Golf up the straights, which was a very pleasant supprise. Hada run in with an E46 BMW M3 and that was properly quick. A car I don't like but can't fail to have anything than utter respect for. I was on the brakes for the S bend and he passed me on my left still under power before the lightest dab of brakes and taking the corners and accelerating again all by time I'd clipped the first apex.:racer:

    Seeing the white GT3 Porsche spin out in right in front of the pit lane was a sight

    as long as you enjoyed the day and your pride n joy was unscathed (apart from tyres/brakes/brake fluid) its all that matters.
