I hope everyone doesn't mind me putting this here, basically i co-run a car forum/club, and we have organised a track day on an air field local to me in Wiltshire. I have planned this with another car club, and we have put this great day together.

We have a chap coming with a Racelogic system to get some proper performance timing done, and it will not only be a simple track.

We haven't finalised the plans, but it will be based around driver ability than just relying on performance. We will have a slalom, high speed bends, plus more, and the oppertunity to do 0-60, 1/4 mile and hopefully top speed runs too. There will also be a track layout for the opertunity to have a go at track driving

The best bit is the price, just £50 per car!

We have 12 spare places and if anyone is interested, please check out our site ( http://www.bse-motorsport.com]www.bse-motorsport.com ), or drop Russ (BSE Events Co-ordaniser) an email

Its on the 8th of August and will be great fun

Bargain for 50notes ! Had a quick look around the site looks good. Do you organise many track days? Want to get the escort out as much as possible when its finished.

I`ll sign up to the forum when I get 5mins.........Your sierra looks good mate

Let us know how you get on guys

Really jealous I can't do it  


Have fun  

littlegems4x4

Yup me too, just can't justify spending that on fuel when I need turbos

Dave


What a cracking day that was.

Everyone had a big smile on their faces apart from Turboshed who unfortunatly broke his gearbox on the first lap.
But fairplay Gray stayed to the end & made the most of it while his car travelled home via green flag.

Off to a slow start but just got better & better.

Track was very slippy, it's not often you can get a 4be sideways with all 4 wheels spinning  
You could do it on every corner too  

Weather was amazing, decent food at reasonable prices, great mix of cars & Squeak in his Sierra won it.

How good is that!

Thanks to all who was involved in setting the day up  

A mini report will be in the shows section soon with what looks to be some mega video

Great day had by all, good to see everyone again.  Would do it again in a flash I think as it was great value for the money, even more so considering we had a free air display :D

Nice picture Dave, will add that to the collection.

I've got Grays Vid I'm piecing together, will see where I can host it and pop a link up.

Rob

turboshed

was a cracking day,it did however got off to very slow start,atleast i managed a couple of sighting laps in 2nd gear!! my car lasted the first corner then started making nasty gearbox noises..eeekk,think i have either broke teeth of third gear or more likely the input shaft,i have a spare gearbox waiting but no rush as i may be building another stronger box over the next few months.lesson to anyone running an mt75 4x4 box nudging 400ftlbs,not a good idea to keep launching the car.

Sounds like you all had fun, and big congrats to Squeak  

In that pic of Robs car it looks like Gray is praying for his life

Toby, Squeak (despite owning an EVO) was not going to allow any Jap cars to be quicker than him that day!  

Gray was a nervous passenger, he was holding the camera round that lap. Words he uttered were "power, power, power", "brake anytime you want to" and he said something about the fence.   Me being me ignored everything he said as I don't think he's used to being passenger :D That or he is used to his understeering way more than mine   lol

Good day, not had a chance to upload grays vid as I need to wittle it down from 8gig first it's about 40 minutes worth. Haven't looked at my little bit of footage yet.

Rob

thanks to every body who came along, we're rearly glad you all had a good time. Russ has told me tonight that he should be geting a list of dates from Rich @ launch motorsport for the next one. sadly i never got round to geting the camara out and the vidio camra didnt fit the mount in the car  


Ive been out at Haines today waching Dan with the BMW pickup and Brad ( the owner of the pink silvia) in his BMW compact doing rides round the track there

Don't forget to let us know mate, I like the set-up they have at Kemble & would defo do another there.

Thank everyone involved for us.


& here's one for you

   Ryz told me he had a few, shall we say, incidents, can't wait to see the footage  

As for Gray being a nervous passenger I know how he feels, as yet I haven't dared go out with anyone else on track, I hate that feeling of not being in control. If you remember Rob I wouldn't go out round the 'ring with you, I do regret it, but I'm not sure it'd be any different if we went again  Not unless I'm allowed to scream like a girl all the way round

Grrrrrr, spent ages trying sort out these poxy MOD files into the right aspect and get it right and you tube screws it up again.

Anyway after some messing I only have this to show for my efforts.

Gray actually sounds a little scared  

Rob PM me your details & I will upload a couple of your runs up & Ryz's spin in high quality  

My camera man did a good job looking at the footage

Here is Turboshed breaking his box:

Yeah thats cool, it's got a 100meg pipe and is under utilised so it basically as fast as your BB, I'll upload typically at 30kps but d/l at 500kps off my bb.

Downloading now.... done in only a few mins
