    Default Spa April 19th

    Probably a long shot, but just in case anyone fancies it;

    http://circuit-days.co.uk/event_info.asp?id=584

    I've changed my Silverstone booking to Spa so I can get in on the Brands thing.

    I'm tempted to go a day or two early and do a 'ring visit first if the weather forecast is alright.

    Yeah, the cost of a garage is a joke.

    I wonder how big they are, I guess it wouldn't be so bad between say four people.

    Spa is fucking awesome.

    It might sound silly, but I'm really glad I put a reasonable amount of time in on Project Cars/Forza over the last few months. It formed the basis of hitting 3m in my first session and 2:59 on my second.

    Nothing can prepare you for Eau Rouge and Blanchemont, however - both require a lot of commitment!

    The day was pretty uneventful, I used the run off at Blanchemont a few times, and had a bit of a 'moment' at the end of Pouhon where I got a rear wheel on the astroturf - other than that, it was smooth as anything.

    I finished up the day in the 2:55s with a virtual best into the 2:54s.

    I didn't best my Goodwood top speed by much, though - 147mph on the Kemmel Straight was the best I could manage, although I did squeeze in an indicated 180 on the Autobahn before having to lift for traffic.

    I'm probably going to head back for a two-dayer in October - I can't wait!

    Nice one Mike, I fully intend to try going back to SPA next year (I booked a day in the Elise 5yrs ago but a tunnel at the track collapsed!!) Will be towing the MX5 down.

    how did the day run? was it busy, anything you would do differently?
