Really, thats a shame. I was genuinely looking forward to seeing someone who knows what they are doing :lol:

Your right, Loton is not easy. Been up it just 4 times and each time the conditions were totally different. That's why I've booked myself on the drivers school on the 12th July for some sneaky practice :roll: :oops:

Yeah yeah i know you and Mr Cork both think im a total t**t, but i dont lose sleep Chaps ;-)

As for the school, you will really enjoy and benefit from it immeasurably, i know of a few loton regulars of many years tgat have done the school and gone quicker! Pro tuition is something id like to do some of next year, i think its the way forward and would get me back up to speed. Id genuinely like to hear your thoughts after youve done it. I know one of tge instructors well and a friend is the title sponsor.

As for mansell, comparisons, i guess you mean an overweight whinging midlander?...

You just need to work on that 'tache mate ..... :lol:

In fairness, Mansell was the one who came back to win the championship (well on his Williams come back anyway :lol: )

One thing I am really interested in, is how 360bhp of DET on road tyres with an experienced driver stacks up against 220bhp DET on 1Bs with a relative rookie at the wheel. The handicap comparisons may give me a sporting chance, but outright times will be interesting.
