Had a great day at Brands Hatch today on the Indy circuit.  My car wasn't quite ready so I spent the day in the passenger seat of a few friends 911's. 

Our very own Carlbon and Tripe were there.  Carlbon in is track ready 3.2 and Tripe in his 3.6 powered SC.

The weather held and was generally very good, although a bit busy at times.  Tripe managed a 360 degree excursion on the exit ad Paddock Hill Bend towards Druids.  One minute Im looking at the entry to Druids, the next minute we are travelling backwards staring at a 996.  All came to a peace full end after drifting off to the safety of the grass.

Pictures to come.....

Pete,
great piccys - who's is the dark one (no 7)??? RUF front (and back by the looks of it) but with a ducktail - I like that, an idea I liked a while ago but couldnt visualise.
I see Carlbons red one was there to, rumours are that's for sale, yes?
Did you have a good time?
Regards

The circuit is ace, as always.  Brands is a very technical circuit.  As is usually the case there were a few casualties on the exit of Paddock.  No severe damage but a few ego's were bashed a bit as well as a disc and undertray of graval.....

The rest of the day inbetween track outings was spent talking to other drivers and car owners.  That's always a good thing about track days - you get to speak to some really interesting people!

I think Carlo is open to offers.  That is a seriously quick car for a 3.2.

Yes red 69 is for sale
Lots of pics avail on request
She is 100% ready to go racing, and win

I had a best result of 4th in class, but since then had a new engine built with brand new Mahle pistons and barrels, and she now has the max power allowed within the regs.

£22,000

Well done on the first bit Carlbon, :agree:  and what is the max power within the regs now?
Does anyone know who's was the RUF fronted and backed with a ducktail at the day?

Hi Kev -

The guy in the RUF alike is Steve.  His handle on IB is "Higgoe".

It was a nice job.  It was a japanese import.  Left hand drive with RUF front and rears.

Cheers Pete,
I will try to get some additional photos from Higgoe.
