Senor Joseph was doing the driving I'm afraid...

Was a few minutes before the end of the day...

Light, FG bodywork, Ali diffuser, and it may have punched a hole in the fuel tank...

Ah well - poor Joe. Is he bothered or will he get straight back onto his next booked track?

Is the tub repairable Pants?

Did it happen at your "special" corner?

Is this another question?

Opps! For a second there I thought that was a repost from November.
When I did mine, he said, if it was him he'd get out and kick the c**p out of it. So did he?
Where did it happen or don't I need to ask?

I feel for you, always faced with the issue of trackdays and your cars safety. But as mentioned earlier, atleast it gives you something to do

ha ha no im not bothered at all to be honest, a bit of polish and it will be reet, i had a great day out today, lots of new faces and lots of other fellow locosters there too.
Shame about the car, but as i went to get on the track the fella said theres 8 min left mate, so i was pushing hard to get some last laps in.
I had full wets on the back and 888's on the front, to cut a long story short the wheels with the wets would not fit, a bit of head scratching and some bright spark though maybe some washers to space it out might do, but then again 2 threads on the wheels nuts actually might have saved the car, lol., but also might have fallen off. .
Steve thanks for being there as pit biatch, tea boy, photo lad and a good mate .
I must say though wets on the rear did help, i took mr dangle out for a few laps and i would say must have passed at least a dozen cars in the pissing rain, could hardly see .
Mind you this chap did 20 min, i followed him back into the pits, he was gutted.

Paul was having loads of fun thats what its about , lost the front braking for cascades but it snatched back and i spun in to the armco barrier .
With the wets on the back although it was really good, when the car wanted to slide the car's rear would stay planted to the track and the front was just like a water ski, when i had Steve in the car i lost the car coming out of the Hislops chicane, was a very weired feeling, juddered the car infact.
Any how its done, just packing for the ski trip to Austria tomorrow, but im still smiling from today. Cant wait for another session, hopefully a dry one.

Unlucky Joe, at least it's only car damage.

So then Steve, what we thinking? should he gone for the washer option

Seen on another forum, it seems a clio glanced a wall too

Yep - coming up the hill into druids - clipped the barrier on the left and span round.

Left a right load of muck on the track ;-)

Sorry to see your bump Mr Welderman.

Should have shouted as well - would have taken you out in the 5.

Pat...

It's your fault he crashed mate...
If you'd have just kept your mouth shut about how dangerous it was to go with the washers, he'd have just let me do it!!!
