    Default Oulton Park Track day 15 Jul 09

    A couple of weeks ago, a mate offered me a ride in his M3 at Oulton Park. It was my first track day and what an experience. He'd Lowered it, and fitted slicks Jesus Wept it was quick. His mate brought an Evo X and that was awesome!!! It was an open trackday and there were spaces. I was tempted to try the Vec but there was no way the brakes would have lasted. Anyway my pics are here:

    This guy had so many offs and got away with it!


    Arh Nice View:


    This GT3 got away with this one. Later on he went home on a low loader.



    This GTR was by far my fav of the day:


    See what I mean about this guy!


    One of two Carrera cup cars...They went past us like we were statonary...and we were doing 110!


    Nice Escort Mk1 that didn't do many laps unfortunately.


    Evo X

    At £220 and no Insurance cover I was not so sure. Besides the M3 and the Evo had to let their brakes cool every 3 laps....How do you think a 888 vec with standard custard brake do?

    The M3 was so impressive and took most of the other amateurs to pieces. But then again, my mate does seam more than able on a track.

    I did.....I even looked up Novice days at Oulton Park for the Vec. They do an M3 half day for £180. The missus gave me £140 for a track day last year that I have not used yet....
