Many thanks to Sam (git-r2) for lending me his MicroSD card as I managed to get a whole 9 minutes of footage from my GoPro on Saturday, including this moment when BMW Voice Control decided I was talking to it when I swore at an errant MX-5 driver who moved out as I was overtaking him. (FF to 1:10 if you're impatient)

What a cnut if I’d seen that when I was there I’d of slapped the silly twat. If I’d pulled over any earlier I’d of taken out the black type R I’d just overtaken.

David - no probs mate :)

Twenny- nice pic, think your car looks fantastic!

All the cxxt calling seems unecessary, it’s a small world; especially the track day one!

Lol and javelin have acted on the trial by Facebook apparently and sent the guy a message saying he would’ve been sent home. That strikes me as being not the most professional thing to do!

Anyone reading this thread would think it was the worst track day ever and could be put off attending anything in the future. I and everyone I spoke to had a great time, no complaints.

I use all the track day organisers but suggest anyone wishing to avoid this sort of thing should try to stick with MSV. You basically pay the same but will be for vastly less numbers on track meaning there’s less chance of the rage we’re seeing here. Also more chance of getting a full credit if your car breaks or if you have problems with noise.
'13 M135i standard.. and will remain so.. I promise... really.. will not modify... or abuse on track..
'91 R32 GTR... basically standard and unmolested... 497 @ rear hubs... never raced nor rallied : https://youtu.be/jhsX0elVG2k
+ some dullness

Thanks git mate.

Even with a few vids of some careless, aggressive and noob driving (me) I had a fantastic day and was very impressed with how polite and helpful everyone was off the track.

It certainly hasn’t put me off track days and I was there. I have always said I wanted to do just one track day just to say that I’ve done one. But the whole day was brilliant and a great learning experience and I’d happily consider doing another one.

However, the distance to Bedford didn’t help my shoulder, as 2 hours driving either side of a track day was a bit much, and I’m still paying the price of a very stiff shoulder.

Good to hear mate 👍👍

So have you caught the bug now? 😎😎

If you plan on more track stuff in the future and want an easier day, aim to turn up for about 10. You hardly ever miss track time but don’t have to go through mass briefing and sighting laps. The best time of any track day is always at the very end as all the early birds go home and the track is nice and empty :)

Also you could try a half day. Javelin still signed on my mate in his focus for the afternoon despite having been fully booked, someone always breaks their car so there’s nearly always space.
