Evening TS, new member from sunny Leith checking in.

Having had (and thoroughly enjoyed!) my first real taste of track action on a visit to the Nurburgring last year I decided to run a track car. Recently picked up a Clio 182 with a low boost turbo coversion which had been prepped for the track by previous owner.

Had my first taste of Knockhill with a Performance Drive session a couple of weeks ago (in the rain Shocked). Just missed out on a place at the Sat 5th afternoon session but pitched up anyway to spectate and see how the trackdays is ran - now can't wait to try a dry track.

I'm booked in for full day at Knockhill on 25th Oct - I'll try and keep out the way whilst I learn both track and car but if you see the inferno (burnt orange) 182 running on white Pro Race 3's do say hello and look forward to joining you all on the slippery slope that is trackdays....

Welcome!, new member myself.

I met you briefly at the rentec open day just after you had given the 182 T a little test.

Look forward to seeing it on track!

I remember - that was a good day. Taking it for a spin was my first mistake and I was hooked almost immediately. See you at the track.
