Next mod are new brakes!!!
hi shane,hows it going buddy?
didnt know youd got a clio now mate,has the m3 gone now?
youd bought another blue e46 m3 last time i saw it on my mum and dads road at inky pal.
small world isnt it bud lol.
Sigh. Another track day toy with zero talent behind the wheel.
Looks like you were having fun! Makes me want to get booked up at abingdon again. It's only 5 miles from my dads house and the shortish straights mean the clio doesn't get mullered by the big stuff.
The guy in the GTR was priceless as well, fast on the straights but wouldn't go into a corner with any kind of speed.
lol all the gear and no idea as usual.
you should see the numptys on bike track days,dress like carl fogarty,
new ducati and matching leathers,downright dangerous ffs.
no idea what a racing line or apex is and no idea of whats going on around them,
just rich and think cash buys talent.
In all fairness, track days are for anyone to enjoy. You don't have to have a racing licence ffs.
Looks like you had fun shane! Work on learning heel&toe next and everything will feel a lot more natural.

more track videos without heel and toe lol id be learning that before you s**t a gearbox!
I work in the hotel that the Atom driver stayed in and he spent a small fortune staying in a Suite the night before. He looked like a racing driver on check out lol
Not when they ruin other people days by overtaking you on a straight and then ruining every corner and not getting blue flagged so you can get past again because they are so much quicker on the straights. I am extremely accomadating at track days everyone has to start somewhere but don't ignore the car behind almost running up your ass into every braking zone and sat there in your rear view mirror with it's ass wagglin around as their foot is off and on the throttle following your slow ass through the corner! Easing off on the straights and following the more confident driver through the corners is surely a better way to learn than blastin past and not being able to keep that speed up. You can easily boot it past when you can keep the speed up.
A bit of consideration goes a long way. The under confident xbow driver at a wet abingdon i did recently didn't annoy anyone all day!! Unlike the BMW drivers who took anything upto 2 full laps and a lot of frantic blue flag waving to get the ruddy message!!!!
Well everyone has to start somewhere And if you have the money why not in an atom
Only done 2 track days myself and im slow as hell lol, the idea is to have fun and not race other people (or so they say) long as you get out the way when your clearly out paced.
There were alot of people there that clearly couldn't drive at 50% of their cars full potential but at the end of the day if you have a £100,000 car why not run it on track. There were more BMW drivers that wouldn't move than the atom and GTR drivers.
