Turned out to be a good day nice mix of cars and quite quiet only about 25 cars so loads of space

Had an issues with the car spewing oil out of the catch can (inevitably first time ever having an action , so could my first ever spin on track, in my defence the oil had just decided to cover the outside tyer at the hairpin after turn one tried to collected the slide before chucking it round in a spin to avoid tyer barrier as know I was no to a loser in getting it back only know it was oil once back to the correct direction when some flicked onto my visor, very thankful that it did not happen at turn one )

Think it's sorted by the afternoon as it looks like the last oil change was slightly overfilled, thanks to a race team mechanic for diognosing and helping get us out again.
Guess the raceline sump instructions are dead right that it's very sensitive to only have 5ltr in no more and no less.
Still lesion learnt and little track time lost.

Late afternoon the rain came in and a 16plate focus RS met the barrier in a convincing way front end trashed completely and all the way down the drivers side, so day cut short by an hour as heave damage to barriers.

Just need to get some miles in to see if oil fix is sorted before next day that's booked at snetterton
