Anyone booked a garage that they’d be willing to let me leave my overnight bag and small tool-bag in please so they’re not rolling around in the car on track?

If the β€˜beast from the east’ hasnt subsided by next Friday would the event be postponed?
 
Or do we all just β€˜luck out’ with our fees paid already if it’s cancelled outright?




My son did a bike track day there in November last year.  It was perishing cold, so much so that the circuit had ice on it. They delayed the start having put grit/salt down and the day went ahead, despite the red flag coming out every few laps.  I was surprised the day went ahead in those conditions particularly with bikes; where you get no second chance!  I would have thought unless its blanket snow the circuit will stay open.

It's a cracking day up here today. Blue skies and pretty warm out there. Fingers crossed that it will be the same for Friday.

Be careful on the roads in Cheshire..

"Further along the road another potential problem has been reported. Darren inspects it and explains that as it is under 50mm no action needs to be taken at this time #cwaclive"

I thought the roads upto  were far better than what I have to drive on in Bucks. 
I found the A41 from Telford To Wrexham (demon tweeks helmet purchase in prep for the day) pretty good πŸ‘πŸ»

Good to see the photos Andy......takes me back.
 
My Meteor Grey CR manual was a change from the White. My CR is now up in Shetland and owned by a garage proprietor I believe.
 
I'm looking forward to returning to Oulton Park later in the year hopefully.

Good to chat to you all today (esp. Jason) and many thanks to Steve and Nick (I think, sorry if I got your name wrong) for the pax laps. Made me miss my departed R all the more :(
 
Hope you guys that had a bit of a drive home did so safely!

Very enjoyable day chaps. Good to meet everyone and to share the day with you all. Highlight had to be the session where we had SIX cayman Rs out at the same time!

We really enjoyed our first RS track day. A few photos to share, not all Caymans  but what a great day out!
Travelled back to Aberdeen today in monsoon conditions, dodging potholes all the way - but that's another story.

It was absolutely brilliant - quite simply the most fun you can legally have with your clothes on! πŸ€ͺπŸŽπŸŽπŸŽπŸŽπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜
 
id just like to say thanks to:
1) Steve Brooke’s for welcoming me into his social group in garage 8
2) Andy Fagan for letting me dump all my overnight and awayday kit in his garage 22
3) Mick β€˜masher’ for turning me the same colour as his peridot cayman R on some passenger laps with him
4) Kevin Furber for sowing the seeds of desire (pending blokenomics convincing of SWYMBO and the selling of at least one vital organ) for a Cayman GT4 after some passenger laps in his GT4
 
Good to meet Tyrone who brought his stunning agate grey GT4 club sport all the way from Reading just to watch for the day (thanks again Kevin for giving Tyrone some passenger laps), and also good to meet Andy β€˜Elise’ (get yourself another Cayman R πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ»). 
 
i was the slowest car on the track, but racked up 80 Oulton Park miles at 16mpg and brought my baby back home in 1 piece. Happy days πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ»
 
I will I’ll definitely do that again next year (just need a GT4 and a LOT of track tuition....)
 
oh and I thought MSV run an excellent track day for the record πŸŽπŸŽπŸŽπŸ‘πŸ»
 
Cheers all and see you all again at a future event, Jason

    It's the sharing in these days which are just the very best fun.
     
    There's always something to learn and no shame in starting somewhere with the passion fired to make it better :)
     
    I actually like the idea of organising these days so that more the more experienced can "buddy" with the less experienced ... and as with the PCCB days this really should include a more organised option to take tuition from those licensed to offer it ...
     
    There is a lot of fun to be had at all levels ...

    Was a fantastic event - I arrived in time for the afternoon session - when it had all dried out.
    I didn't run myself as i wasn't sure if i was going to make it, and also my tyres, Race Maxx, were pretty marginal.
    Primarily wanted to take in the sights and sounds - see some of these cars at full chat, being used as intended.
    Met some really nice people - even managed to get some passenger laps in fiercely piloted GT4.... and was loaned a helmet... Many thanks to Jason and Kevin.
    Loads of GT4s - which was great for me! 
    A number of 991.2 GT3s which was great to see - there was a black one which was intent on buzzing the pit wall every lap!.
    As mentioned there was also an 991.2 Cup car getting having a shakedown which was great.
    Whole event definitely has given me the bug to get out on track next time - so looking for the next events now!!. Well worth the drive up. Here are some rough pics straight of camera roll.
