    who was running that trackday?

    looks like a company to avoid if they didnt take the bell end in the db9 off the track until it was too late.

    Your car was the most exciting and enjoyable car to be following, the 3 wheel antics around the corners made me laugh out loud, it looked great fun and the cars road legal too, brilliant !!

    The wheels I bought for track events etc and I keep the standard S3 style on for everyday use, I looked at Oz ultraleggera as I wanted a weight reduction but come across these from Team Dynamics, Pro Race 1.2, they weigh just 8.7kg each yet are half the price of Oz and made in the UK, I picked them up from the factory in West Bromwich (Midlands) and paid £440 for 4 inc wheel bolts etc, bargain IMO.

    They are 8.0j x 18" 112 x 5 x ET45.

    If anyone is interested I have the conntact details, drop me a pm.

    Really are exceptionally well made and even when had the tyres fitted the fitter comented on how well balanced they were only requiring 1x weight each x 3 wheels and 2 added for one of them to be spot on.

    I went for gloss black purely because they were in stock, they also do white, silver and graphite or any colour of your choice subject to an extra charge for paint and a 2 - 3 week lead time.

    :laugh::laugh::laugh:

    Some really nice cars in that thread...S3's not bad either :respekt:

    Ooooh, if that was my porker, I'd be like :angrymod: that Aston driver needs a good punch on the willy. good for him the cock didn't crash into that 2.7 RS, that's worth almost twice as much as the very expensive thing he hit :no:

    aston driver looks an idiot just standing there, i really feel for the 911 owner, whats the point in buying an expensive fast car if you cant even handle it hey. im glad he has to pay out for everything now, if i was the 911 owner, id try to get every little penny outa him!

    I dont think there is any legal obligation for the db9 driver to pay for the porsche damage.

    I guess the porsche owner could pursue him through the courts, but he might have difficulty actually getting the cash out of him.

    I was thinking that - he's got no chance of getting any cash out of him.
    Without a machete that is.

    Yeah you take the risk on the track tbh & given no track insurance anyway, badly run track day if they let it get like this, if the guy was being a cock then he should of been removed simple as for the safety of others.

    Personally I would of sent Blazin round to the guys house to sort him out :undwech:
