    Really enjoyed the weekend guys, well put together with plenty of tracktime. Shame the weather and my brakes were against me . Looking forward to the next one already.

    Fantastic weekender IMO.
    Great team behind the scenes organising this event.

    Highlight of my weekend was getting Daz black flagged for having a Pink car with brown wheels!

    Top weekend had by me - I was a little down as I didn't have the 180.
    But getting the Focus out for a few laps at the end of the day was a hoot - officially the slowest thing I've ever tracked
    You know the tracks slippy when even a 1.6 estate is spinning up in 3rd....

    Thanks for all the effort by the organisers, looking forward to the next one already

    Cracking weekender as always! Thanks to Kieran and all who made it possible!
    Cheers all

    You only need two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

    And if you can't fix it with a hammer,you've got an electrical problem!

    Right then i'm over my pout from not getting the 200 ready now...

    Top work by Kieran for getting it all pulled together and more to the point keeping it all running smoothly all weekend

    Thanks to everyone that chipped in and made light work of otherwise mundane and boring tasks (cooking,cleaning setting up and packing up etc) it really does help massively if we have numbers to help in all of these tasks.

    Was very pleased that we had no major incidents over the weekend and with the exception of a drifter no one did any lasting damage.

    Shame that there were quite a few people that didn't come down to the tent in the evening to join in with the social side of things, but can understand as there was no real entertainment going on to draw them in. Think that nearly everyone in the marquee were part of the usual crowd though so were just catching up with more background music than the usual rave tent lol
    After the Fire drum got going it helped draw in some new people though so just goes to prove fire is a must.

    Sorry i didn't get to speak to everyone but i have no idea where the time went on Saturday! it was a complete blur after i started on the beer after lunch lol

    Special thanks to PDH for being my driver all weekend and putting me up in his tent too lol

    HUGE thanks to Kieran and the rest of the SXOC Staff and crew for organising another successful Weekender
    A little different this time with some of the usual gang missing, but still having not seen folks for 2 years (or more in some cases) was fab to catch up with everyone. Sure made me realize, just how much I miss y'all and the Club too.

    Looking forward to next years, in whatever guise or track in which it materializes.

    Top job guys (this event alone, justifies the membership ).

    Cheers.

    A (& Bristol Blue/Steve)

    Cracking weekend, as with other much thanks go out to those that shopped, cooked and cleared up and massive props to the jock ****er, its a thankless task organising this I tell ye.

    My 135i was epic but oil still getting hot despite now having two oil coolers, MR2 reminded me how beautifully balanced it is and will now have some moneys spent on it and had a good thrash of my mates M5 too, left TC on but Jesus that thing is something else.

    Drifting was a good addition, gave us something to watch when cars were cooling down and weather just made things more interesting IMO, I think someone could do with explaining the difference between catching a slide and drifting to the marshalls though, heard a few people (myself included) complaining of being black flagged when the only other option was spinning or stopping dead on track.

    Same time next year folks?

    Pretty sure that 200 at the start of the second vid was me, I saw that coming and I didn't even bother, didn't you chase after an EVO aswell?

    Really happy with how my car performed though, even though I wasent on my preferred wheels and my brakes have now had it haha. Good fun.
