  4. Colin Its the Lotus on Track event and its October next year......lol I know.....nearly 12 months away...... I like Donington.....ive been round there a few times.......and Cadwell always struck me as a bit narrow for a novice......lol
  5. I have suggested to the wife that for Christmas Id like maybe a track day...... now I dont know much about them having only previously done 2 as a 2nd driver........so not much input other than driving round my questions are basic really..... for a novice do I go open pit lane or sessions????
