I'm hoping to book but spotted a leaking oil cooler yesterday.
Need to fit that 1st & it's Easter weekend so parts places are shut Mad
Doubtful but fingers crossed & get it fixed & they still places left if I do.

Not many from here do Hot Hatch nights but there is a few I think.

Take it easy with it being your first time driving around Knockhill. Hot Hatch days are known to be a wee bit wild so expect the unexpected !

Did you do any brake improvements, Lenny ?

Anyone can attend now I think. It used to be that the car had to have a value of 10k minimum, if I remember right, but not anymore.

I've only been to one of these but it was far quieter than the hot hatch trackdays.

There were civic type r's, to completely standard street cars like volvos to AMG Mercs and a few M3's, some competition minis and whatever really.

I was not asked anything about my car when I booked.

If I wasn't out on Saturday and Sunday I'd be there in Impreza on Monday. Can't mange this one unfortunately as my wife would cut my balls off!

Didn't get my list of jobs on the car all done today & it looks really wet Monday I'm going to leave it until the TS day in May.

Going to try & do 1 or 2 of the own car 1-2-1 instruction courses KH before then to make the best of me & the car too.

I might do this with the Fiesta - was hoping to go to the Alfa tracknight tonight but something came up which meant I couldn't go.

Would go to the testing tomorrow but just want some time to get to know the car and I know ill start ragging it after some fiesta or mini. Laughing
