    This turned out to be a great day with the rain holding off nicely until 1 minute after the close. Good to meet you all!

    i had a great day, didn't speak to many people however. I did have a walk down the pit lane a few times but everybody was on track.

    I was in the purple E36 with green wheels. Been to Donington a few times now but this was the quickest I have been yet.

    I know we can't time laps but if you were to time them, what do you think you would be doing...?

    Cheers - unfortunately not, I have been far too lazy to detail it all out! Happy to provide detail if there is anything specific of interest though??

    I was there, won top prize in the raffle too, must have spent £100 on tickets so far this year though.

    Very good day out, fire spitting old CSL was amazing.

    Was a great trackday, the weather really did play ball with a heavy monsoon style rain just as the chequered flag fell!

    Was impressed with my Kumho V70a tyres, I thought they'd be finished but they were good all day and didn't wear much from the start of the day.

    I was there too.
    Great day, weather was excellent too.
    Spent a bit of time getting beaten up in the morning by the race cars but the afternoon was a lot better.

    Both mine (black e46 m3 with white wheels) and PolarisCSL's white m3 weigh in at around 1400 kg with 3/4 a tank of fuel, still have front carpets and door cards in mine! Could get another 40/50 kg out but won't make me any quicker so haven't bothered yet!! Need more talent first!:D

    same as me, need to learn before I upgrade the car.

    My E36 is at 1440 Kg now with 55 litres of fuel.

    I was surprised to find tat I was much faster on the straight than the bright green E46 (think it was with Thorney Motorsport). I assume it was an M3

    I was surprised that i was quicker than the GT3, unsurprisingly he didn't like the fact i was quicker and didn't want to let me pass!!:D
