Crash Course at Silverstone

Just got back from Trax at Silverstone, enjoyed meeting up with the usual suspects and a few new ones.

After a good morning of track action, in particular that Capri getting overtaken on both sides coming out of Copse by two Evo's - a bit naughty but bloody funny - the track day lemmings came out to play. We had the XR2 that managed a 360 into the armco on the main straight (??), the P1 that took Copse too fast, went into the kitty litter and did a multiple barrel roll and the PorscheTurbo that got written off on the armco again on the straight. No serious injuries apparently. Really shagged the track action for some folks though. Ironically my track session was stopped due to a Hillman Imp that broke down on the Esses just after Copse after being lapped twice in 4 laps by nearly everyone. *%£$!*^@~ !

Enjoyed it despite only 10 mins on track. Lee, got those piccies?

Steve.

Re:Crash Course at Silverstone

Had a good day at Trax, was also out on the session when the Imp broke down, apparently Mr Bean was driving it! Had a good dice with blue scooby on the last session, got past him after a few laps, very enjoyable. 'XR2' that crashed was 240BHP Fiesta RS turbo that sheared driveshaft thus the spin in a straight line. P reg 911 completely totalled down hangar straight poor chap, it was only insured on track for £10K

Re:Crash Course at Silverstone

That guy driving the IMP was unfortunately one of the people in the 5 passenger at a time helicopter ride I took, he was a total nerd, just like Mr Bean !!!!!!!!!!!
btw..... thanks guys for totally ignoring me, and making my day not as enjoyable as it could have been, thanks to those who took the trouble to speak! Don't just assume that girls are ONLY tagging along with hubbies/boyf's etc, you might be surprised

Re:Crash Course at Silverstone

Michael,

I thought someone had sneaked the Hillman Imp on as a joke, but he was meant to be on! Must have come in the back of the pitlane when we were in our cars ready to go. When you exit a fastish corner and come across a car on the track doing 50mph less it kinda throws you. Why the **** he was in a session with Evo's, Skylines M3 Coupes, Nissan GTI-R's and Scoobys is beyond me.

Mind you, did anyone see the bloke in the Ford Orion who got timed out on the 0-60 sprint because he couldn't get to 60 before the end of the track

Lee - shout when you have the mpegs up, cheers.

Steve.

Cheers Lee.
I was the passenger in my other halfs EVO 6, parked at end next to the blue 7. Was anyone else wetting themselves over the pathetic Nova/Astra/saxo/corsa/Orion/fiesta/Peugeot Boys/Girls ???? Risking sounding like a total snob..... but, do they not realise that they look a bit silly?

Who saw the Scooby get binned? only saw the aftermath of that.

Re:Crash Course at Silverstone

Which gives me an idea.....What about a Maxpower type photo-shoot with all the evo-chicks lounging half-naked over someones Evo ! We could get it in Wastegate Chatter and I'm sure Lee will hold my tripod for me [img]https://www.lancerregister.com/graphics/embarassed1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle ><!--e6-->

Re:Crash Course at Silverstone

Bean with the Imp missed the briefing for his own session with the Robin Reliants, Wartburgs and Daf 66's, so they put him with the EVOs, Scoobys and Skylines! I dont think he broke down, he just got scared, stopped his Imp and ran off.
