Not sure how you pronounce it, hell-of-a-tone, but it’s the venue of the next BRISKODA trackday. Friday the 1st of June we’ll hopefully have 30 or so Skoda’s tearing up the track and burn some rubber. It will also be the first opportunity for me to put the car on the track and see what she can do. A shame it isn’t Bruntingthorpe, but as that has been closed down by the residents on grounds of noise levels, it will have to do :)

Crash, bang, wallop!

Old Skool TrackdaysSo I lied about the stickers ;)

This years event was again a fantastic day out, and apart from some minor ‘injuries’ to the car I survived it again. During my (what appeared to be my) last lap I managed to overshoot the braking point into a fast right hand corner, lock it up completely and enter the grass verge sideways. The result? A bend alloy :(

See for yourself in DivX or Quicktime.

Fortunately my good friend Dave has kindly offered to pass his spare alloy onto me, so as soon as I’ve found out where I can have it refurbished in the same colour as the other alloys I’m back in business again!

Bruntingthorpe 2005

BruntingthorpeYes! Time to dig out a lid and spare the tyres… we are heading to Bruntingthorpe again on Saturday the 18th of June.

Last years event was a great success and I am glad BRISKODA is organising it once more. It sure is addictive this brisk driving ;)

Oh, and in case you’re wondering… No, I’ll not be applying any stickers this time :)
