Was on a track day, on one of the straights I started hearing a horrible knocking, pulled straight into the pits and then forked out £300 to get recovered home still awaiting an assessment on how much damage has been done. Currently looking like a £1500 + repair bill. Just in time for Christmas haha!

Car is on 128k so it's not that surprising. Was looking into if it's been recalled, still waiting to hear back from BMW customer services.

Shall we aim to get there for 9:00, which is when it starts?

For those coming from the Bath /Bristol direction, we could meet up at the BP garage on the A433 and drive in together. How about 08:30 at the garage?

Ditto !! Was nice and relaxed there !! And it was good that there was a drive through the Cotswolds !!

Those V8s with that exhaust mod sounded awesome through Tetbury !

Yes defo up for a spring meet when weather improves, would be good to get a few more cars and get there before the Supras !!!

It was good to meet you all. It was pretty cool looking in the mirror and seeing a string of 5 M cars!

Any of you up for a track day in the new year?
