PostSubject: Experience day. Now want boost.   Mon Sep 06, 2010 12:05 am

Last year Jenny got me an experience day and I finally got around to booking it.

Started off with a few passenger laps in this:



And then my weapon of choice arrived:







Ferrari, Lambo, Aston etc didn't interest me. The only other car I was tempted by was the Lotus, which was bloody quick when the instructors were taking it out.

The instructor I had was a guy called Tony Lynch. It turns out he's the British stockhatch rallycross champion. He was driving 205s and 106s up until recently. Now drives a Suzuki Swift Sport. So had a good chat with him and he gave me loads of advice. Really nice guy. The next round will be live on Sky next weekend. Should have given him a B4T spotted card Razz

Now want boost. What an amazing bit of kit. Handling was spot on. Power was endless. Brakes smelt good Very Happy And when the turbo sneezes, it makes love to your ears.

The 106 is a fantastic car to learn in and I'll be keeping it for a little while yet until I get some more open pit days under my belt but owning an Evo 8 track toy is now on the list. Apparently I have to buy a house first though? Bah!

That sounds familiar Very Happy

Jenny: How much is that engine conversion costing you?!
Me: Nothing compared to how much that designer hand bag is costing you!
Jenny: But my hand bag is pretty.
Me: Put your hand bag on track and sit in it. I bet it won't give you as big as smile as my car.

...then it turns out I make her travel sick when she passengers No

I'd say a dodgey 106 quicksilver gti conversion that isn't sure if it like to charge its battery is interesting Razz

Seriously in love. Amazing for the few laps I had in it. Should have paid for some extra laps... or just driven away in it.

I am well and truly in Mincers Anonymous. I will get have an Evo Very Happy
