Well you certainly got perfect weather for it!
What's going on with the sound though? .. it sounds a bit like a UFO in a 1950's sci fi movie.

Nice work well done, I love cadwell. One of the best tracks for a se7en.

I'm surprised they allowed you to drive without gloves.





Track days ARE the best thing since sliced bread, until I get a supercharger that is!

Gloves ?

Are they normal then ? The day was organised by MSV. No shorts and no short sleeves in an open top car but no mention of gloves in there blurb or on the day.

Got some time around Donington next week end in the renault.

I wear gloves on track days and thought they mandatory for open to cars, along with long sleeves and trousers.

Never heard of gloves being mandatory on track days? Racing yes. The only time I wear gloves is when it's a bit nippy on the fingers.

I never wear gloves on track (unless its very cold) - no one has ever complained. I was once told to sort my (long) sleeves out because the airflow pushed it up my arm which seemed a bit officious... bit of gaffa tape sorted that out though.

Maybe this is it. I seem to always do track days at cold tonnes of the year!

It has been over 2 years since I did my last one so it seems track days are becoming a distant memory!
