Love the attention to detail in your car GF.

I have a feeling we crossed paths many, many years ago on the dieselstation forums in the photography section.  You were just getting into photography or something, and your shots were amazing already.  I think.  I'm not sure.  It was so long ago.

Dieselstation was an amazing forum, it’s where a lot of up and coming photographers met and learnt a lot.  I’m still in contact with a lot of the guys from there, often pitching against them for the top commercial jobs which is pretty mad!  I still pinch myself that I’m lucky enough to be able to make a living doing something I enjoy so much!

The comments on here have convinced me to go with Cup 2s. Just one quick question is it 215/45/17 on front? 

Thanks

Had another bit of track time yesterday at Silverstone on a private trackday run by Topaz Detailing for their customers.   The level of cars present was quite frankly ridiculous, and the majority of drivers were very good.

It was run on the international circuit, which I'd not driven before and as I could only stay until 12, I didn't fully get to grips with it, especially as it's quite bumpy.  I managed a 1:17.1 according to my vbox, will look at what the ideal time is and where I'm losing the time.  I like doing a bit shorter a track than the GP, to be honest, as it gives you a chance to change the damper settings, do a short session and feel the difference. I stiffened the high-speed compression a lot and the car felt a lot more stable, although the car has some mid-corner bounce when fully loaded, which I believe needs to be sorted either with the ARBs, or with stiffer springs?

Unfortunately, my Go-Pro decided it didn't want to work yesterday, so I only have a couple of fly by clips, which show the kind of cars battling on track.  Overtaking on both sides is quite nice, and good respect was shown between drivers as most knew each other.  To be honest, the Exige has no right to be even close to a lot of these cars, so I was very happy to be battling with them.  Special shout out goes to the Carrera GT, which was just a total joy to watch!
