13th & 14th August and I was down at Brands Hatch for two days hard work. Very busy 48 hours driving the Porsche turbo one day and Ferrari the next. Great banter at night with most of us staying at the Thistle next to the circuit.
The day after Oulton and I was over to a new track at Blyton Park for one of 6th Gear’s Supercar Performance Days. I had never been to this particular track before, but soon settled in. A great little track with an amazing Clubhouse with lots of historic photos: great!!
9th August and I was back to Oulton Park to help out on the MSV promotion stand at the British Superbike Meeting . Very busy day met lots of interesting people
8th August and I was over at Donington for a small corporate event with Steve Walshaw. Steve had 4 guys over from the Lebanon and I was looking after them: jumping from a Caterham into a Radical. Had a great day including a massive spin coming out of Coppice!!
6th August and I was back to my “home” circuit at Oulton Park. A busy track day with plenty of on track coaching including a few ARDS tests as well.
One day later, and I was over to Donington for a track day with BookaTrack day. Jonny and his team run an excellent event and today was no exception. had a busy day out on track, going out in everything from a Caterham to a Noble.
The day after I returned from Germany, I was over to Rockingham for a Supercar day at Rockingham. The Race School had put on another full day with customers being able to drive anything from a Ferrari to an Aston Martin and all points in between. For the day I was reunited with an old friend : the Aston Martin Vantage, a great car that makes a wonderful sound!
I flew out to Europe for BookaTrack’s track day at Nurburgring on 1st & 2nd August. My role, along with 4 other instructors, was to act as a “roving marshal”. This involved circulating the track keeping an eye on driving standards & any breakdowns, incidents etc. For this task we were given some very nice BMW 1 Series to drive. What an amazing circuit: I managed nearly 800 km over the 2 days. Can’t believe they actually raced Formula 1 …
Another very hot and very busy day at Donington for one of the Race Schools very popular Supercar days. This time I was back in the “baby” Aston martin the Vantage, at least the aircon was working!! Must have had nearly 40 drivers through my hands that day, wow what a busy time!
The day after the Toyota event & I was back at Donington for yet one of BookaTrack popular corporate events. Very slick day as always, great bunch of people who were really keen on listening and putting our advice into practice out on the track, great day !
