Was a great day, met some nice people, got sun burnt and drooled at some great cars :)

I don't think my car wants to go on a track, reporting I had none just as I arrived at the pod, ignoring the 1 ltr I added and then as if by magic just as I was leaving the oil level jumped up to half way. So I could have run up the track... :( when I checked again 50 miles later it was at full :?: I must have started the engine 5 times whilst at the pod and it didn't register the oil.. :cry: I will have to go back soon. :D

Thanks for organising Bish! Top job, I got there a bit late and had to display some classic BMW driver, "Park wherever" skills.

Was good to talk to a few old faces and meet some new ones.

I couldn't believe how busy it was! Even at half 4 when I left, it was still really busy.

Wouldn't really have been a trip to pod without a bit of sunburn and a back bumper covered in rubber though, both are yet to recover lol.

Thanks for the tips on the strip! What was your best time in the end? Need to work on my launching then go back when it's a bit quieter!

Cheers pal, was too late to get in on the BBMW stand and then with the reserve list. Have a few friends with E92s and then lots of groups on FB too. Next time..

Anyone going to the National BMW festival at Heritage Musuem, gaydon on August 13th?
