  1. Hi all, a bit late adding my bit, Got to agree with everyone else, had myself a fantastic time, this was my first time on a track day, the morning was bum twitching driving but the afternoon was absolutely amazing, found out that my car isn't as quick as most cars there and that my driving isn't as good as most there, but I didn't give a monkeys, I had a great time, it certainly put a smile on my face, also the kit ran well and it didn't break down and I didn't break anything, was really good to be able to push the kit to both mine and the cars limits safely, can't wait to do it again.

     

    I did manage to get a couple of videos, from the morning session, will try to upload them.

  2. Hi all, Andrea has asked me to see if anyone would like a meal on the Saturday night at the national meet, apparently she wants to cook again, she must be mad, but nevertheless she wants to make meatballs in Bolognese sauce, and you supply your own bread or whatever to go with it, trying to keep it simple,

    just want to have an idea on numbers, to see if it's doable or not, (it looks like it might be a large turnout) this is getting cooked on camping stoves again, so there are limits,

     

    let us know what you think

  3. Excuse me Si, but that exhaust needs a good polishing to complete the look lol

    mine will require a good going over when I get it back, Terry, you'll have to give me a master class at the weekend

  4. Well that's it I've gone and done it the car is no longer with me!

     

    Well for tonight anyway, its with Martin Keenan having a nice new silencer fitted :rofl:

     

    So I shall be picking my baby back up tomorrow night with an nice new and quiet silencer - no more bleeding ears lol

    mine gets dropped off tonight, for my new one, might see you there
  5. no we don't have a route yet, so I propose we have a run to Carsington Water, via B5023, 31 miles, about a hour and 20, and return route, same route, or via B5023 and A6, 25 miles, about 1 hour, (look on google maps) or do what we plan to do, find a pub and have a drink, to remember Mark by, and a bite to eat, then back to camp,

  6. hi all, some good ideas mentioned, a lot of you seem to know the area quite well, is it possible for someone with local knowledge of Donnington / Matlock to come up with a route and destination and return route, as I'm struggling a little bit, of course i'll still collect donations and anything else to do on the day,

    thanks Ivan

  7. Right then, back to the drawing board, Unfortunately I don't know the area, so my knowledge of it is zero, so we need somewhere with enough space for 20 plus cars, and somewhere that can cater for us all, might be easier to forget the fish and chips and just have the drive out, possibly stop at a pub and raise a glass to Marks memory instead of a chip fork, I don't know any pubs around that area, but I'm sure someone does, they might even be able to serve food, I'm open to suggestions.

  8. Yes limited parking, but I thought we could just take over the town and park anywhere, or the side streets at least, and yes considered contacting the chippy, once it's a definite choice, as for a return route,thought we could have a race back, 1st back gets the beers in,

    Or just make our own way back, or if anyone has a route in mind

  9. hi all, had a look at a route and thought the one that Rob(cma) has suggested is better than the one I came up with, so I think we should go with that,

    the one he posted a link to (post no 40 on this topic)

    it will probably be a nice steady drive, not really any fast roads, but the sight of a convoy of kit cars will be something to put a smile on everyones face, drivers, passengers and pedestrians, probably Mark as well,as he's looking down on us sipping a cup of tea, and hoping someone else's front wheel falls off, :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    anyway, you can check the route out, print a copy off if you want, or program it into your sat navs, Andrea will run a few copies off and we can hand them out if needed at Donnington,

    remember it's £5.00 per car and all proceeds going to charity, lets make it a night to remember,

    thanks again, Ivan :) :)

  10. Thanks to everyone, yes had a great night, an absolute surprise i didn't have a clue, just shows how devious and sneaky Andrea is,

    It was fantastic to see family and friends, I especially want to thank Andrea for being a fantastic wife and my best mate, and for giving me a gift to remember

    Cheers Ivan :drinks:

    Ps, i now have a zimmer frame for hire, unless I'm using it that is. As seen in the 1st photo.

  11. Yes, a fantastic day, and a fantastic weekend for me and her (Andrea) as its already been said great roads, company, and drive and the food and drink in between, was also good to hook up with Dan E and Sue last night for a few drinks and a chat, and yes as for the lads in the astra, that's what you get for driving to fast, good job none of us were doing that,

    All together did about 240 miles all trouble free, quite surprised, just backed it into the garage and it ran out of fuel, timed to perfection,

    Thanks to all for the day

    Ivan+Andrea

  12. hi Dan, starting from Cedar Farm DE55 5NP not far from The Greyhound pub in Alfreton,

    Good route though Terry,meet up at point A possibly a bit later though, about 10, leaving at 9 we'll be done before the pubs open,

    We've got about a 45 minute run to the start point, I think,
