It was a hoot.

Wet Spa just wants me to go back and pray that it will be dry.

Even thou I have HGF, Ali and myself finished of the week with a blast over Glenshee Friday afternoon in the sun. Must have passed 10 TVR's DB9 and a f430 :lol:

Once I have paid for the HGF i will be saving for next year.

(legend.... maybe crazy ba*tard is more appropriate :lol: )
it was definately 900 degrees from the video. altho it felt more. i'm not convinced that there isnt another spin when i'm behind the car as it was quite violent. who knows, just glad i kept it out the barrier :D

Good skills :D

No gave up on that as I had a problem with it a few years back with the old elise. I do most of the servicing myself (change oil etc) so you need to show bill all servicing bills etc.

I will look into it.

Wasn't anything to do with video evidence on the net of 14000rpm on the downchanges then? :lol:

I'm sure you could have some 'copy' bills 'arranged'? :wink:

Some more Spa/Ring photos for your perusal.

Particular attention should be given to the Carrera GT harassment photos where the poor Porsche driver held onto the centre of the road to protect his expensive toy from the Elise "Wank R."

Hundreds of professional trackday shots are currently being edited by Paul and will no doubt be posted later :shock:
