Set off this morning but the snow on the A55 was getting worse, not better as I thought it would, so made the decision to turn back just before St. Asaph. Obviously as I headed home the roads started to clear so now wondering if I made the right decision

I left around midday as rain wasn’t letting up and my car was aquaplaning badly on the standing water. Wasn’t feeling the love ;)

Great to meet you guys though and enjoyed the beers last night,

I’ll be back for June event

In the meantime seems someone was lucky today at PH silverstone taster https://www.facebook.com/faith.meaney/p ... 9479982646

Another great Exiges trackday. The weather didn’t spoil my day in the 211......the faster you go the drier you stay.

It was the wettest I’ve ever driven on track and the car was brilliant, confidence inspiring and playful. I loved it.

Thank you to Benja and BaT for another enjoyable event.

How nice was that Exige Cup 430!?

A great couple of days. Good craic, good curry and good cake ( thanks Martin and Gill) And I just loved the wet
weather . . . The trip home was worse than being on track, surrounded by people travelling too fast for the conditions. Aquaplaning was worse than at any point At Anglesey.
Thanks to Benja once again and to Bookatrack and the marshals

Wow what a great day!... if alittle wet!
Thanks for organising, it’s already on the cylinder for next year!
Great to meet new faces (even if I struggle to remember names!)
Great night at the bull last night to, and hope I didn’t wake anybody early as we set off for the track!

Great to meet you all over the bank holiday, despite the pouring rain I really enjoyed trackday. I had a few moments, but it was great to be on track with like-minded people who respected each others space & speed.
Thanks to Ben for organising & getting me on the day.
Special thanks to the guys who stayed over at the bull on Sunday, you all really made me feel welcome and had some great chats over a pint of two.
Similar to thommo I had a horrendous drive home! But it was worth it!

Cheers all & see you at the next one!
Oli

Oops, a special mention to Pierre and pal for making their epic trek, particularly for my new Hungarian friend whose face when he got out of AndyD’s car was a picture - pure enjoyment tinged with wide-eyed amazement.

Well done Ben & BaT. Really enjoyable couple of days and as always great to meet old friends and make new. There never seems to be the time to properly catch up on the day. Big thanks to everyone who made it possible including Oakmere, Hoffman's & Matt from Pistonheads. Another great effort by Pierre. Those who couldn't make it Randy, Dave etc another time I'm sure :thumbup:

And a last big shout out to Anglesey, wonderful circuit and superb marshals.

Ben and BaT. Thanks from me as well though I only made it there on Sunday it was good to meet the Ferrets. Sunday was such a good day but I expect the ferrets enjoyed being otters on the Monday.

Probably best not to mention that Sunday was dry all day and the biggest problem was getting lonely on the track.

Anyone got a race logic data file you can send my way so I can compare lines/braking with mine? My logger shows that I am very consistent with lines, braking and accel but that may mean I am consistently wrong. Ideally a log from a 120hp Caterham Academy.

Next BaT day for me is Croft on the 5th of May. CBA to go to Silverstone.
