Is there plenty of run-off grass and gravel?

As i 'assume' we are not insured once on track?

(will phone Classic Line tomorrow and see what

they offer, but will NOT be daft enough to give a

date or place in case they file it...)

In this enviroment, given anything with a steering

wheel, i'm the first to hit the barriers :)

I specifically asked about insurance matters.

They have of course public liability insurance.

For ourselves the key thing to say that to your insurance company is that it is a "Driver Training Day on an Airfield". Motor-sport told me that in almost 100% cases this never a problem.

There is no racing, no speed trails, 100% of time with an instructor who is propertly certified to teach driving skills.

Looks like a really good laugh / day out. For a ton you can't go wrong ;)

So... What was the infamous Geoff Moat like?!!? I hope you all took the piss for turning up to a meet ;):D

Geoff is a very nice chap actually :) reminded me of the bloke in the wurthers originals ads, you know - granddad type. Only instead of offering around some poxy boiled sweets he was caning the bollox of his super-immaculate yellow S4 all day. Not bad for an oldie. ;)

Geoff's OK, was in my group for the day in his Yellow S4! Old, thin, grey newcastle lad! A pleasure to talk to. But then he didn't piss me off before! Long trip for him from geordie land! You never know, if he enjoyed himself you might see him at another meet!

I didn't get to speak to Geoff but he seemed nice a nice guy. Actually sorry I didn't say hello but when we were split up, I didn't really see anyone apart from the ones in my group.

I pushed my V8 much further than I thought I could have. I really surprised myself and had a fantastic day.

My camera can take a quick blast of 5 pics in rapid succession, so with the law of averages I'm bound to get one good one! The next time we should have a video crew or something, perhaps a camcorder attached to the outside of the car too!

Dave, you were entertaining to watch, you certainly gave your new car some stick!

Impostor at large!

Me, the infamous Geoff Moat, attending an event? Nice guy, OLD!!!!!, grey, looks like the child molester in the Werther's ad, NEVER. Obviously an impostor attended the event.

Can I revert to obnoixous, arrogant, nearly 30, slim with boyish good looks?

The real Geoff Moat S4

I have heard mutterings at home that when I wear my half-moon glasses, I look like Pinnochio's dad!

Hello, I live with Geoff Moat and after reading some of the comments after the day out on Sunday, I feel that I should set the record straight. Far from being the kindly old Grandad in the Werther's sweetie ad. Geoff is more akin to Albert Steptoe or one of Harry Enfield's old gits. Don't take his reluctance to come to meets personally, this behaviour is very typical of his attitude to socialising across the board and more especially towards family events where children are involved. The only reason he got off his arse and came on Sunday was because it meant he had a legitimate excuse to play out with grown up toys.

I should add at this point, that I was amazed he actually turned up at the event on the day as he has a great reluctance to take his car out of the garage on rainy days. He was also seriously worried about driving to Rugby and leaving it on the street outside my brother's house the night before.

On a positive note, I think he really enjoyed himself on Sunday - although he would never admit it - to the point where he might actually come to another similar event. I would therefore be really grateful if you could organise a few more similar away days to get him out of the house and give me a bit of peace!

Regards

Maddy

(Geoff's long suffering, much younger and nicer partner).

I can't believe I've missed these posts 'til now!

I almost fell off my chair laughing!

Geoff.. I'm thinking of organising another Alton Towers run this year in the Events thread... if you like you can post in there complaiing about interminable meeting arrangements for old time(r )'s sake?! :D;)
