Yep, weather has unhelpful, but it finally stopped raining at about 3pm.

It’s a great event, with some fabulous cars both on the track and off it. Hearing the classic F1 race just reminded me how rubbish the current cars sound 🙁 - these ones are almost uncomfortably loud, even on a drenched track. Respect to the drivers trying to tame them.

I was lucky enough to get to be driven round on the Abarth parade lap in Abarth UK’s 695 biposto, a full on £50k spec with dogging gearbox - not a car that enjoys going slowly!

Great day!

Anyone know what was going on with the pedestrian pace Porsche in the evening sports car race? There was another one on the morning races, both looked like rolling roadblocks at times. Curious.

Ta!
I must admit, I didnt bother with any static shots today, which is a shame, because I think I must have at least 20 "first time evers" with cars in the club areas....
