Would have loved to hear those Ferraris at full chat, gutted I didn't make it to a F1 race prior to the loss of those exhaust notes. :love

My plan for frolic is to collect Tom and take the Chunnel.

See you all at the bar! :cheers :beer :drink :drive

Have a look at the earlier posts David. I'm preferring Hull-Zeebrugge for minimum hassle/miles.

Unless adding Spa on 30th July...

Caldwell sounds good too Gordon, but I will have to see what how much days I will be taking off for the Frolic.

Gordon - ive had 2 bad experiences with Javelin
1st one at Donington - a race car testing took me on an apex as I was approaching it
2nd - people overtaking me on the wrong side
Bunch of amateurs- watch out
Lots of 1st time trackdayers

Hi
We’re just back from two Javlin track days at Spa, driving standards were very good. A huge difference in cars on track, everything from Lamborghini Hurcan to a Clio.

Must admit the sighting laps were a bit chaotic, Peeple leaving pit lane and straight to racing speed 😂, at least one off during our sighting laps. After that everyone very well behaved. Just had to check mirrors frequently as some rapid machines on track.

All of us really enjoyed if even though the track was like driving on ice when it rained which resulted in a few binned cars.

Cheers
