    Default Oulton Park BTCC - Spotted Mitch +

    Spotted today whilst enjoying the BTCC and various Renault/ Ginetta races at Oulton Park;

    * Mitch (X6 M**)- Black Facelift Sri with VXR Wheels & Club Stickers

    And......

    * The long lost member 'AJ' + family - didnt manage to speak to him.

    Also....

    * On the VXR Stand - A new Insignia Turbo 4X4 in Black and on 20"s - pics to follow unless someone has beaten me to it?

    Yeah - I did think that you wouldnt be too far away

    We watched the first two races near the finish line and then wandered over near you for the final BTCC race. Had a look at all those VXR's - the white estate was nice too! My mate who was with me commented at the begining of the day how common the VXR Astra's seem to be - then low and behold we found a nest of them at the end of the day Plenty of 'burg editions too.

    I hope you dont mind - I took a pic of your car whilst we stood behind, looked really clean and smooth

    Not as dirty as mine when I came to leave - we parked next to the finish line under the trees - the road was even dirtier there! I had to power wash the sticky dust off on Monday.

    Yes I have some pictures and a couple of short vids to put up. Did you see the Ginetta 50 accident? We were stood right next to it - crapped my pants with the noise!

    Yeah - was very scary when you saw how hard he hit the other car and when they cut the roof off.

    I got mad at the people taking pics as the Paramedics worked on him and the fire service cut away the cage around him - very direspectful.

    Anyway - Spoke to Clio Cup Sponsor who gave me the tickets and I believe that he is ok - very bruised internally and poor vision for a few days after - plus severe whiplash. Very Very lucky to be alive > 120mph to Zero in about 1 second
