Great day, thanks Darin and Barry.

The day started a little slowly, with a couple of stoppages to deal with cars that couldn't quite manage a full lap without breaking and some chicanes that go a bit blown around in the wind.

The afternoon ran really well and was really enjoyable.

So different to a track day and probably a much better way to improve your driving. The concentration required to get everything right in one lap is totally different to a trackday where there will always be another lap to "get that corner right". Not knowing the circuit at all made things a bit interesting, and the urge to push on while not having the line fixed in the mind can add to the risks a little; after really hooking up the apex at tower i arrived at bobbies chicane 15mph faster than previously, trail braked a little too much, over rotated, countersteered, caught the spin and pretty much drove through the tyres on the second apex at 40mph, thankfully only minor damage i think. So fun onboard video to follow :)

Other than that blip, i steadily improved my times and my last run was my fastest clinching the prized second slowest GTR honors :D with plenty of room for improvement.

Pictures of the GTRs and Skylines and I'll post a link later to some shots of the other cars taking part. A really good day and nice to meet up with some real enthusiasts who took part. Looking forward to the next round at Blyton.

Just catching up with the two threads about this.
Was a good day, if a little slow to start due to people breaking there non-Nissan cars on the first lap.

After my early departure I went home, packed and loaded son in the the R35 before heading off again and have just got back.

Pictures look good and it looks like I didn't do too bad.
Alex didn't have the bit of track knowledge I had and was only a second slower so I suspect a few laps more and he'd have passed me.

But overall an enjoyable day and it was interesting to see what a Sprint event is all about.

I've got a video or two, will put them up when I get time.
