    2017 Weekender Media Thread

    I thought it was a good plan to have a thread where we can share media or links to it that we have taken over the weekend

    I only took a few really dull videos, but here they are:

    Great idea, and if you already have pics or vids elsewhere can you link to them from here as well

    Well spotted - yes. MX5 was stolen in September 2016, bought a 205 as I love them, and it did me proud. Didn't break down all day - over 150 miles on track too!

    From the Facebook posts it looked like a good weekend for the people that went.

    Any videos or pics of my Chaser, please send them over. My GoPro died on the day so I got no footage

    One from me so far, from the piss yellow M3:

    https://youtu.be/RHo0k_0uuA4

    Few people appear in it: Black Evo, Sparky? BMW 330, Aaron LEDsandwich Mini, Green 350Z, Silver S15 making some noise, Tash's MR2, and the GT86/BRZ.

    As for my pace, delete excuse as appropriate: first time at track/first time on track in car/Sketchy nearly bald RSRs up front as I got a front puncture on the proper wheels early on/being a big shite bag in the first corner/just a bit rubbish.

    Willie - I'm not sure what happened to my camera on the last session of the day, seems to have run out of battery

    Also, if anyone has any track photos at all of me, they would be much appreciated Sure I saw a couple of people with cameras at the trackide - Chris Cooke, byebye, etc?

    Just one vid from me but a good few feature on it - Golf Gti, white silvia s13 a couple of times, Sam's e46 a couple of times, Tash's mr2 a few times, black M5, green 350z a couple of times, blue estate, SteA's Seat, black GT86, Evilchap's 205 gti, white Ford Focus, black puma a couple of times, Dr Bob's Jag, Aaron's black mini, Doc's 1 series, black or grey or blue s14, blue e46 convertible, white s14(a?), black s14(a?), Rubixcude's pimp wagon.

    My excuses range from the rear suspension nik-link (fancy ARB) that snapped right at the start leaving me exclusively with unsteer for the day to first time I'd driven the car (with loads of other similar BS inbetween).

    Yeah it may be epic, but it's just not fair

    Sorry for getting in your way at the end there, that's the exact moment my front right tyre went flat so I was concentrating a bit too hard on that

    That just makes every other car on track look like it's at walking pace. Looks like so much fun to drive.


    Here's my best lap of the day.

    Agreed total unfair advantage but when racing this isn't even the quickest car on the grid, it should be midfield though.

    Daz, it was a hoot but should have been more so. On the first few laps I could tell the front end was really really pointy and thought "this is going to be bananas" but after the breakage the front end was no where, couldn't hold a line

    It'll be fixed very soon though.

    Sam, no problem at all definitely need to make sure the car in front knows you are coming to get past there so was just making double sure on both occasions, was just a track day after all

    Heart Broken... on the plus side, the place I got my cam from are replacing it. So I'll be ready for the next track day!
