3rd generation RX-7's / Re: BOOSTED FD BUILD.

Pleased to hear no worse then that. Semi-slicks on a wet Camp corner was always going to be challenging!

As you say, done now and you're OK, which is the main thing. Step back for a while and decide what you need/want to do to the car. It's coming to the end of the track season and you've still got Westie for some fun, so timing could've been worse. At least you've had some good track times with The Rocket this year  :)

Oh Nooooo... what have you done  ??? Coming off at Camp leaves you nowhere to go but nearby tyre and concrete walls  :(

Well, at least you are OK (I hope and assume!). Looks like it'll buff out OK ;)

Looks very damp there, so assuming that didn't help!

Move it forward a bit and it'll serve as an umbrella to keep the rain off  ;)

Ooooooh, shiney  8) Looks good and pleased to hear you're making good progress - except for the weird screw thread issue holding things up - there had to be something to spoil the party  ;)

Rotorstock 2006 - I wonder what happened to this RX-7/8 hybrid?

That pic was taken by Geoff Henson, Brian's brother  :13:

Magic has been worked John, please see link to Silverstone Race 1
Nice driving in atrocious track conditions!

Having driven Silverstone in the wet last year on a trackday I found it to be one of the worst circuits for getting any grip in the corners  :-[

Thank you Philip for putting the commentary on the Race 2 video. Despite Clive's bad luck, it was great to hear the enthusiasm of the commentator for Clive's car. Nice to hear positive stuff about the rotary over the tannoy!

I really appreciate the time you've taken to put the video together to make it available on here :icon_thumleft:

Picture of our 12 car stand (I think 10 of us had arrived at this point):

What a day! Shame the weather wasn't a little brighter, but at least it improved towards the end of the day and it was dry.

Well done to Lisa for finding this event and arranging a stand. We would definitely do this again, or a similar day at Duxford, etc.

Having never been to Biggin Hill before, it was a fascinating day out from a historical perspective, and the air displays were absolutely awesome  :13: I have never seen so many Spitfires together, on the ground, or in the air. A great variety of other aircraft were there too - I don't think I've ever seen a Blenheim flying before!

Great to meet everyone, sory if I only spoke to some people very briefly, as there was so much to go and see. Gwyn and I spent very little time on the Club Stand - this was much more of an "air" day then a "car" day for us. I took loads of pics and have only just started to look through them, but this one caught my eye (not bad for a budget 10 year old Nikon SLR and £120 Sigma 70-300mm zoom!):

That is amazing! I saw a brief preview of this event on the BBC on Saturday, when Mad Mike was interviewed and his RX-8 was liberally shown in drifting action.

I admire the skill of these guys, but drifting doesn't really appeal to me though!
