If anybody is camping feel free to come over for a beer, I’m in the white 200T CR10PPR! Bring a chair we don’t have any?

We had a great turnout today, the show in general is definatly on the decline though but these occasions are great to meet and catch up with cliosporters. Nice to meet @nath&alex and err, dam? Dim? @Cerrone what's that ginger guy called again? ?
Hahaha this has made me laugh to myself all day every time you’ve said his name to me but because I can’t fully understand your accent and clearly you can’t understand @Don’s I haven’t said anything! Haha the whole bunch of cliosport.net are a great bunch! Can’t wait to get to csf and crack the beers!

?? We will have to set up a group pm at csf so we can communicate clearly. So many wrong accents ?. At least I could talk proper to @mossyv6 and @nath&alex today?

Did @Ali get home in one piece?

@Djw Dave was a hero and let me use his car in the 1-3 session so once we got the car back to road wheels and packed we popped over.
Flamer still isn't home :(

Thanks mate, I like to keep them kind of standard look as I think they look good. CSF we’ll have a chat ?

It's just prompted me to!

It's still in the service area that it was dropped off at. Obviously I'm not gonna say where but that's been 24 hours sat there.
Apparently getting picked up at half 12 tonight. Like it was at 5pm earlier.

Well here’s hoping they pull their finger out and get it done.
Yup, it's got my track wheels in it so hopefully all is well.
Was a shame not to meet you or even see the car today but whilst you were on track we were going over the car to get it ready for the afternoon, just spanner checking and fuelling up but it took a while.

Didn't see a single bit of the show until gone 4!

Aye saw your van going past, looked good!

Just had a phone call from the patrolman saying he's with the car and ready to go, can I come to him? Er no mate, I'm up the road, "oh, keys must be on it" bloody hope so!

So that's it been parked up 2 nights with a set of willy wheels in the boot and the key, I assume, on top of a wheel.

Ah well, at least it's finally on the move

First experience of the FCS yesterday and had a great day! Although slightly pinker from all the sun now!

Thanks to the lady on the stand for helping me when I looked lost and parking me up! (sorry I didn’t catch your name!) and the friendly welcome in general.

Fell a little bit more in love with my car after seeing the passion that goes into everyone else’s! Although my cleaning regime when I parked up was nothing compared to some! Lol.

@NorthloopCup was yours the green one that was initially on the end of the row and then moved towards the back? That was lovely!

Sorry to the couple in the GT who were questioning me on my plates towards the end of the day - I wasn’t much use to you in the end!

Aye, practical family daily race cars!

Good to meet you and hope you enjoyed your track time

Oh and car update, apparently it'll be here in half a hour. But as they've told me 4 or 5 different times I don't believe them. Hopefully it's here before bedtime.

Well I hope it looked good as I was doing 110/115 through craners! Lol
I have no f**king idea what speed I was doing but I know it's a quick track! Managed a 1.28.7 according to Harry which I was pleased with for a 182 with sportlines, ds1.11 and some old style 888s but tbh I have no idea how that compares!
