    I did it one year a long time ago in my Celica GT4 ST185 Rally car as there were too many Maserati going to do it and they asked if I could bring something else and it was before I had a Ferrari on the fleet.
    I remember the day well as took Andrea for a spin and had a Major spin meeting Matt coming towards us in his first GS full chat.

    Cripes it's unusual for the back end to strike like a Mamba in a bend - on a FWD GTV!!. Fighting the usual battle with power understeer the previous couple of laps
    (excuse the very false Oz accent I cant do Maori)

    Many contributing factors (excuses) for the prang but, in my mind, major that they persuaded me out of my request to do the sighting laps before taking a passenger onboard. BAD! The driver should be king IMHO! Anyway if there's any sort of fall out the banter's all captured on my video cam.
    Been racing at 'Combe since the late 50's so I should know my way around the circuit by now - but she's a fickle mistress and two others also went off at Quarry during the day.

    Very much in agreement Andy but I guess looking from the Charities point of view they need a profit and like many other 'Supercar' event organisers they hype up the presentation. A bit 'tongue in cheek' in my view but I recollect seeing a Noble, a nice Lambo, a McLaren and 3 Ferraris, one of which was on our display thanks to Mr BJL.

    It was a great day and the association with the forum guys made it special, as did the weather.

    I too know Combe well and I still managed to write of my Mk1 Golf Gti rally car on that corner after many laps around there.
    I had to reshell her for the second time.

    The interior may pass for a 7K car but unfortunately the paintwork gives it away as the 79K car that it is, it's covered in stone chips. It does get well used though.
    The cracked bumper was a case of me thinking I knew better than the parking sensors!!

    79k and your ashtray script is still intact??!!

    The only blemish I could spot in there is there he skip forward button on the stereo... was it restored at some point or does everyone who gets into your Spyder have to cut nails back first?

    Pat yourselves on the back guys, (tricky) here's an extract from another squawk from the organisers, just arrived.


    The bit you’re waiting to know is the amount raised, which has beaten even the record amount raised last year. The total raised on the day for circuit rides and the Bristol Motor Club Autosolo event is £14,506 . With a proportion of the gate money yet to be calculated and added, we can reasonably expect the total raised to be well over £15k. A superb result and close to a practical maximum I suspect.



    Hey Mr SPYDERBAGS your car would have looked the part on the forum display. How about next year?
