Nice to meet Andy and Sam (thanks for the helmet loan) today; and thanks to Dan for a couple of cheeky laps. :D Did you manage to scrub the marbles off your front tyres in the end?

Brilliant day guys, really good to meet you all.

Hope everyone's cars are ok now.

Sam, the passenger laps were an eye opener, didn't realise what our cars are capable of. You clearly spend way too much time there😜.

Didn't get to scrub the marbles off, Marco, but went and got the mini for the afternoon and was a second quicker than in the M140i. Way too scared of ruining my 'expensive' car, track slag 1 m lite 0😁.

Hi Marco,

I had some work colleagues with me so was probably out with them when you here.. always next time!

I’m in a 67 plate 140.

Just Made it back to Lancashire with 43.1mpg and only half a tank!! The drive train error made me be extra nice to it

Holy crap 43 mpg! My drivetrain error also disappeared, it is just the fuel sloshing about when below a quarter tank, lol the car did warn me it was low, the second time it’s happened so I’ll know in future to keep the petrol topped up!

What a great day that was :)

Will start a new thread for videos.... and brace myself for the driving lessons I’m about to receive! ;)

Did you get on track in the end then?

Any lap time improvement from the LCA's?

Yeah just sorry I didn’t manage to get you out.
Times definitely improved and grip when really pushing seems better. Best improvement was the brake feel. M4 pads highly recommended.
Car is really very good :)
