Hi People,

Sorry about the lack of updates!

First on the mod that was mentioned in the last blog posting. She was later reinstated as now we have a helathy team of 5 moderators with no arguments! :)

I love cars :( . That's the main reason I recieved as Red Letter Day a month back (they did accept it after the company trouble) so I could drive a Porsche 911 and Ferrari F430 (fresh from delivery) at Silverstone, which was one of my ultimate dreams. :(

So you turn up to the circuit on a gray Tuesday afternoon, have a safety briefing, learn each car and after all of that you then get to drive the nuts of both for 15 laps each! My brother (That was a shock when I heard it was from him) payed a bit extra so I could have a good few laps on top of the training. First lap wasn't very good as I nearly went straight off into some tires :blink: But then I found the rythum and was off getting quite good lap times IMO until what must have been the 12th lap when I broke the traction control.... I did keep going though because the instructor didn't notice (until the last lap) the warning lights on. All he said was "How could you get it so sideways with the TC on!?" :nonono:

Porsche next and it was spin after spin in training... with inevitably landed me sand trap.... then into a wall at 80mph.... Not wise... :rolleyes:

Last week I recieved the repair bill... £500 on top of the insurance :unsure: .... I'll just stop talking about it now :wub:

Thats it for today folks!

SW :)
