    It was a brilliant day, the weather was close to perfect with it actually being quite warm in the sun. Was surprised that they let us go out on a dry track for the first hour, and it was like starting all over again when they wet the course because the difference in how much you could push your car changed dramatically. I definitely preferred it when the track was close to drying out as you could go a lot further before spinning.

    I was happy to find out i've come a long way in being able to control my car since the last one of these and by the end I was getting some impressive angles whilst being in total control, I think a huge part of it was building up the confidence to keep the car high up in revs because it doesn't really work otherwise

    Couple of photos that a friend took:




    Came away with no battle scars to speak of and it got me home driving smoothly after all the track time. How's yours after the day out Rallye?

    Had a cracking day, great to meet some new faces! Weather couldn't of been better! The 200 performed faultlessly all day, no real damage to speak of, just a small knock on my front splitter! Rally liked the long sweeping corner on the lefthand track, by the end of the day I was able to link a few corners

    Any one not sure about doing a drift day, just get out there and give it a go, got a much better feel for the car on this one day than a year of driving on the road!!

    Cheeky pic -
