    Tomorrow - leaving house at 6am, cycling 80 miles to Kent to pick up my new track car which is now ready to go. Driving back home, doing house stuff, late afternoon drive up to Corby for a friends birthday meal then when that's done I'm driving up to Durham to see my mum. So around 400 miles of driving and 80 miles of cycling.

    Rest of the weekend - recover!

    Yep. Its a P plate Seat Cordoba SX 16v that I've bought to replace the Ibiza in my sig. Just had the second lot of work done on it (fitting front and rear ARBs, Strut Brace and it's MOT). Already had cams, polish & port, manifold, intake, throttle body done. It is nice to drive - can't wait to get it on track. FIrst outing is likely to be at the VW/Audi track day at Castle Combe at the end of July organised by Autometrix.

    I'm an extra in a Bollywood film this weekend. Its called Patiala House http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patiala_House#Plot
    Think it's basically about an Indian (Akshay Kumar) who has a choice to play for either england or india in the twenty20 world cup, then decides to play for........dont want to ruin it now lol, doubt it will be shown in many cinemas over here anyway.

    All I'm doing is jumping around in the crowd, I should be quite noticable as im 6' 2 n wearing a bright blue jumper lol. What I find funny is that as there was only about 100 of us, we were moved to different parts of the stadium (essex county cricket stadium) when they filmed at different angles, so one minute I'm at one end of the stadium, the next I'm at the other lol. Herschelle Gibbs was there today batting for SA (tried getting a photo with him but my fricking phoned decided to give up on life, typical :mad:) n a couple england players were there too I think (not acting though).
    It's great fun but a long day, got there at half 7 in the morning n finished about half 6, rain slowed it down a bit though. Dont have to be there till 12 tomorrow though :lazy:
