Oulton Park (Pic Heavy)

Spent the day at Oulton Park on Wednesday with my mate Staffs Deltic who had got his car on track. Was an open pit lane and track time was available from 09.00 to 16.30. Paul (Staffs) has written a full review of the day which is in his mods thread, I was there just as a passenger. Although it was a track day there were not many what you would call normal road going cars that were there for the time we were on track but some serious track focused beasts!

After our session had finished it was followed by a 'taster' session in which Swalesy and Richie Type R took part, but their track time was brought to a premature end by a Megane having an incident with a barrier!
Pics to follow from that.

A totally brilliant day out and can't wait go again and maybe this time get my own car on track.

Cracking pics Paul.

Most of those cars I seem to recall were in the rear view mirror trying to get past me, Aston excepted who had a DPB FN2 in his mirrors (until I passed him)!

Glad I grabbed your camera to take the pic of the crashed Megane; just shows how wrong you can get it if you don't pay enough respect to driving fast on a track.

Great pics, looks like an awesome day. Both cars look mint, but loving the milano red with GP splitter.

Damn whoever was in the R26 must of been either very unlucky or driving like a fool because they stick to the ground and it doesnt look like it will T-Cut out.

Looks like you had a cracking time lads. You can get it a lot more wrong than that, unfortunately - although seeing someone else make a mistake always sharpens your own senses!

R26 driver was pushing it before he went off. One of the lads said he was on the grass on a previous lap so I think it was inevitable. Didn't see the off just heard it from the pit wall.

Posted this on my mods thread but no harm adding it here as well. Not the best video of my first track session due to the amount of spray but you get the idea.
