Great day, but way too many cars on circuit as the K7's were buzzing and bullying pretty much everyone to get out of the way.
Weather was perfect, bright, dry and very cold, didn't start raining until gone 4pm and then they were all out of shape.

A Ford Puma driver tried a new line through Surtees and took major damage off side when he met the tyre wall at Mclaren, driver ok but he'll have a hell of a job explaining the damage to him Mum's car when he gets home laugh

Coupé's were on song and holding there own with no issues, in the afternoon I suffered what I think to be an early lift pump failure in the tank as the 044 fuel pump in the boot sounds like it's oscillating air so not getting enough fuel.
Rocket in the morning was blistering fast, raw and pretty frightening tbh as I've not driven her properly since 2013. Alex my Daughter was nearly passing out at the bottom of Paddock hill due to the G's being pulled up Hailwood hill.
New Cameras fitted by Jake have captured so great video and the 300+ SLR shots of the day should make for some good footage so more to follow on that.

In all an excellent couple of days and I think I can say we all enjoyed out track time and made it back safely with no break downs or issues.

My mate Mozzy and I really enjoyed our time at Brands! cool
First ever track day for us, so no lap records set!

As Joe said, lots of cars on track, with the Caterhams constantly darting around you in the bends like a swarm of wasps at times. frown
The Porto was on good form all day, the engine pulling really well and handling aplomb with only the brake pedal going spongy mid way through the afternoon.
Good to meet other Coupe owners with their fine cars who shared our garage and we all kept our cars on the track surface, to see another day!
Big thanks to Joe in bringing the Porto up to scratch mechanically and for persuading me to go along. cool

Some photos to follow.

Jake is a good lad, nags sometimes but not too much laugh

He's edited the video footage of our day at Brands, my driving is very gentle and courteous to all the other cars that were buzzing around on circuit, 20 mins worth so get comfy smile

Brands Hatch 18th Feb 2016.

Glad the day went well, I miss brands - not been there for a while.

Goodwood on monday was really wet, and they kept threatening to throw me off for noise (even after an extra silencer was put in for the day). Apparently I was still hitting 100db on corner exits. crazy
