I was a passenger in the Fiesta mate, and yep it was one of the quickest cars there today i think ( but i would say that as i kept tightening the harnesses each lap Laughing )

You where talking to my girlfriend , who had the Focus RS in the paddock with the carbon fibre detailing under the bonnet, I believe you know Kieth who had the other Focus RS next to hers

Both the Focus RS were very nice, although I couldn't understand why Keith wouldn't let me a have a shot round the track! Smile

Green Fords FTW Smile

The West of Scotland RSOC hired Knockill for a nite for a members only track nite, and Kieth drove round knockhill, albeit pretty slowly , but fair play to him he did go round the track

my girlfriend drove our Focus round track with me chasing in the Fiesta, heres the video

Nice video PDM, thanks for posting it.

Damn I want to go back to the track right now!

I think I need to watch more videos, I can see where I'm going wrong on some of the race lines:)

Hmm Maybe I should get a video camera, any recomendations?

Was the Charlie Shaw focus running well. It is quickest by a fair margin when it is.

Also had a good day, weather was the best I've seen in years at kh. Not too many incidents as I'm aware, few people taking strange lines into corners and letting you pass on straights but racing you into the corners :/ but have seen that happen with a few newbee's on track lately.

Thanks Gord,

I have heard the GoPro being recomended before. Oh heck whats another 150 Confused If the transponder hadn't just cost 300 (what's that all about?) I may have gone for this, maybe next month sometime.

If you cant stomach the GoPro price, Im trying this out:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1080P-2-5-LCD-Full-HD-Car-DVR-Cam-Video-Recorder-Camcorder-Mini-Vehicle-Camera-/160769171832?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item256e96e178

Obviously I wont be as good but it is less than a quarter of the price. Vids on Youtube of it look decent.

Hi Struan - Blair here I met you yesterday at ICR... as I said to you 67 is good for your first time in the car I done that all year my first year.

You know what made me quicker? Cowie giving me some instruction but don't tell him that.. Wink

Might have missed this but has no one else mentioned the Golf that ended up in the armco at the hairpin after the driver left the handbrake off (it was parked up)

Hi Blair,

Nice to meet you yesterday mate, I really enjoyed the day.

I think Mr. Cowie is trying to flog me an ST lol. I told him I love my wee green banged up XR2, so maybe next year Smile

Or maybe I'll sell the wife, re-mortgage and get myself a Radical SR8 hehe

Best of luck with your ST this season.
