    I would like to, but it's too pacey and too much wear on my car.

    Terrible day today, totally oversubscribed and over 10 red flags. Other people with E92s tend to do 3 tanks of fuel on a day at Snetterton, I managed 3/4 of a tank - probably less than an hour of track time.

    This was the last session of the day before they called it quits at 1520!



    and a nasty little car on car crash

    Did you see any aftermath of the crash?

    Yeah. Celica definitely RIP, rear quarter, door, sill all bent.

    RX8 probably RIP, too, but I only got to see it from a distance. Rear corner caved in and a lot of stance level camber

    Celica did drive back under is own power.

    Why so many slow drivers?
    I know yours is speedy, but it looked like everybody else was barely moving.

    To give you an idea of just how slow, I think at one point we lapped someone in two laps

    Too many idiots driving the racing line on road tyres, I think. Silverstone has so much rubber laid down, I think. I could get away with it on nice warm race wets, though

    I love driving in the wet on track.
    Exploring different lines is half the fun.
