After the first timed run our own Nige was in second place :woohoo: I think he unfortunately got bumped a place in the last timed run to third. Fine effort from himself and recently tweaked car. :beer:

My four runs in order. I should have adjusted the exposure but I forgot

I really enjoyed today - of all the days I have been to Prescott today is one of my favourites.
Steve and Andrew drove very well and put some more powerful Porsche drivers to shame.
Many thanks to those that came along to watch/support the event - it was great to have club members present.
As always, it was nice to have the company of Linda and Leigh, and it was great to see Stan again. Also, to anyone I didn't see to speak to, thank you - and maybe I'll see one or two of you at Bicester tomorrow (feel free to call me on 07966 069956 if you wish)

BTW, I got to the top of the hill before Steve every time :lol:

Had a lovely day supporting the owners club drivers. Had to reassure Leigh his car would be safe enough in the overspill car park amongst all the (other) gorgeous Porsches there. Hidden in plain view by the front (facing forwards and sandwiched between bigger cars), new member Phil and his lovely wife Karen had spotted us coming in and came over to say hello and point out their new and rather tidy silver NA. Lovely to meet you, Mr & Mrs philofross.
Was also nice to see familiar faces, Ricky, Stan, Nigel (& Paul & Caroline), Steve, a fair few 924s and 944s dotted around made the whole Porsche experience more interesting for me. The Bierkeller Boys provided the live music, the catering was decent, the racing was obviously dead good :drool: some gorgeous cars getting thrashed too.
Unfortunately, I was wrong about the parking. Got back to the car to find a scrape on the door and the paint chipped. b*gg*r. (Already part sorted with T Cut though.)
There was a photographer (does a bystander with a good camera count as a photographer?) waiting for us when we got back too. He asked us which way we were leaving by and if he'd mind us taking photos as we leave, he was very interested in getting photos of the car and talked to us as if it were a once in a lifetime opportunity :razz:, it's great when somebody else loves your car as much as you do isn't it! (I personally wouldn't know as it doesn't happen when I'm out in Scruffy..)
