    Looks like you both had a great day ;)

    Always been intrigued as to how quick the vx220T is... I've done a track day session at silverstone in a lotus exige and wondered how they would compare?

    I spent most of the day overtaking just about everything, even the odd Caterham.............except that bloody M3!!!!!! It had no right to be faster than me!!!!!!!!!! Either it was being piloted by Jenson Button or it had some seriously good mods.

    The Exige didn't seem any quicker than my VX, in fact it fell behind after a few laps. I'm not a seasoned track day guru so they can't be that great.

    For the road, the zed has it by a nose. For the track, the VX blows the zed out of the water I'm afraid. I loved my zed with a passion but at the moment the VX is my weapon of choice.
