I don't feel like typing as much detail as you did Tim, but echo much of what you said!
You know my brakes were smoking hot after each session.
Tyre pressure increased session after session despite letting air out inbetween.
Eibach springs are not enough, needs firmer suspension as I was rubbing arches on some corners.
Check oil regularly as well, mine barely moved yet Tim went down to min almost after a few sessions.
Fuel, 10 mpg!! Refuel required in the afternoon. Jerry cans would have been useful to avoid paying 147 a litre...
My set up held its own really well, although as Tim has alluded to losing weight will make a hang of a difference. Unload everything from the rear (jack, tyre repair kit, boot cover, back seats) and then set about losing weight from the front as well.
On the whole most drivers were very well mannered, some were a little more stubborn which is visible on camera. The HOT are a great bunch though and I look forward to attending an event in the future.
Think that's about it from me, I may write a more detailed summary once I've had time to relax and catch it all - as Tim says properly exhausted!
