Particularly wet today - I did a 79 something but importantly proved I can do second gear launches in G97. Thanks to Josh for the LH seat in the S2000 - interesting handling :shock:

Shaaddduuup Craig.
It were greasy out. I didn't want to say it was raining but it was, a bit. Not as much as the afternoon. Three morning crew certainly got the better deal!

Friday morning times. Phil went for Mildly Moist. I said Damp. Definitely the better session! Max put in some times for his first outing.

Times for the afternoon session. This time definitely wet! There were a number of spins due to the conditions but all were safe with no damage. More laps were attempted but there were several aborts. Josh set his times in his standard S2000 and gave a number of us a ride round. This was interesting from a number of perspectives. Firstly Josh's skill in controlling what is a handful of a car! Secondly the car is the face-lift model with allegedly better handling! Josh commented that he would rather drive the SS1 on slicks than the S2000 even in the appalling conditions.
