    The 0-60 runs were brilliant. There was some guy there in a green Elise who kept coming back for more and seemingly winning each duel with ~6sec :o There was also a black Cossie'd up stealth Clio that was scoring 5sec times and 13sec 3/4's IIRC. A couple cars blew their engines on this event I believe :o

    The track was fun to watch but only two corners were visible to spectators :/ No way to get to the others...

    There was also a Noble and Ariel Atom's taking people out for passenger rides around the track.

    Pffft those V6's are common as muck :p

    Some nice motors there.

    The black Clio you mention, you sure it's not the 400Bhp VAG one? With just a pressed metal seat and perspex windows inside?

    Did you see Clio Williams 0001?

    That new Clio 197 looks smart.

    I'll ask what everyone else on here is wanting to know but too afraid to ask - were there any scantily clad models on show?

    Bloke who runs the garage I go to was there in his nitrous powered V6, he said he was too scared to turn the nitrous on when on track as he reckoned he was going too fast as it was lol.

    A friend of mine was on track with his rallye and it was the first time he was running slicks (ACB10s) He ended up mullering a driveshaft and loosing oil out of the top of the engine as he was cornering so hard :D He made the 400 mile round trip too, suprisingly. Another friend was not so lucky, the clutch went on his bike engined westfield.

    Same plane, and some other places reminded me of it. I would say yes as well.

    Sorry chaps! :p

    Memphis: It's not the TG test track AFAIK... the show was up in Leicestershire, not near Guildford :) Most abandoned WW2 airfields tend to serve as plane scrapyards. That Jumbo jet actually had a ladder on the front nose wheel and some people were climbing up and looking around for like 5 minutes at a time :o
