On the 30th September I had a great day out at Donington Park on a trackday organised by the BMWCCGB. The weather was superb all day and my car never missed a beat. I had a new track to learn but took advantage of the FOC Instruction early in the day to point me in the right direction, (thanks Steve) it put me right for the day, at least I knew where I should be going :). Averaged about 12mpg :oops: and went through a brand new set of yellow stuff pads!

Darren Teagles took picture on the day and the full set can be found here : -

A few pics of my car ;)

A little onboard footage taken early afternoon, sorry about the poor audio, I will sort it out next time. Enjoy :)

That 3 series looked like it was going backwards when you went passed him!

I'm guessing he was on a slowing down lap Gary.

Thanks Board, I really enjoyed the day, the track seemed to suit me and the car pretty well. I will certainly go back.

Thanks Terry I did, had a root around the front pads today, I am thinking I may need a little extra cooling for the front calipers :shy:

A little before and after video, the left hand side was early on in the day.

Looks like you had a good day out, always find the car is better on track with the roof left up.

Looking forward to a day at Castle Combe on 23rd November.

I find my head (c/w helmet) hits the roof lining all the time with the roof up, It is OK if I have the hardtop on but the softop is just too low to be comfortable. I also enjoy the top down experience :coolsteer):coolsteer):coolsteer)
