Sh1t, sorry to hear that mate!....sounds like it could have been a lot worse.

Hopefully you still get to do it once it's all shiny and repaired.

Was hoping that my company would subsidise part of the fee through our "Employee Learning Scheme" but in their ultimate wisdom, they have refused funding so I'm going to come up a little short on the full fee for this event.

As such, I have made an offer of a percentage of the full fee but made it clear that I am more than happy for my "reservation" to be taken by someone who can pay the full fee.

Anyone else who is keen on this place and can pay the full price to help Kent Dan out of a hole, feel free to get in touch with Jo (CATDT) and take my place.

Cheers

Thanks NAndrew ... Kent Dan has decided he's going to use an alternative car that's hiding in his garage. We look forward to seeing him on Sunday.

Really looking forward to Sunday! And the mystery car Kent Dan will reveal!

We may have some rain to contend with too!

Mine is currently suggesting it'll be dry http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2652087 but hey, that's probably just guaranteed rain from the heavens :lol:

I'm a little jealous as I had such a good day I will almost certainly go back. Maybe a follow-up day to practice even more or a drifting one.

Have fun!

Looking forward to Sunday, I really wanted to use the M140i, but as that doesn't have a gearbox at the moment, it might be difficult :lol:

Won't be in anything special, just the Mini, although it does have quite a few mods. Should still be fun, but wanted to get to grips with the BMW.

Thanks for sorting everything Jo.

See you all Sunday.
