    Fuck I hate drifting in the wet, slow and gay. Hard work that was, literally impossible to transition as the puddles just made that tiny gay little car straighten up. Later on it dried a bit which started to make it possible, but then I just started to suck due to the dry/wet patches, lol.

    Was that a quiet or busy day for that place? Thought there'd be more driving time tbh. Still a well cheap day for sure.

    that was an average day to be fair.. on a busy day the queue goes all the way up past the pits (my mrs told me cus shes a marshall/tog for them)

    believe it or not that was reasonably busy considering the weather. when its warm the cue moves faster as people arent spinning due to a wet track. and ithink everyone span a minimum of 100 times yesterday.
    some good driving yesterday considering the shocking weather.

    also cheers to all the marshalls and staff who were outside in said weather all day

    Thanks to the organisers for sticking with it despite the weather.

    Unfortunately, had mechanical gremlins for much of the day and got plenty damp working on a fix, got some good track time towards the end & really enjoyed it despite still struggling a bit with fuelling problems.

    Glad everyone had a good day, wasnt great for us stood out marshalling lol. Hypothermia set in early on in the day haha.

    Stav, considering the weather it was quite a busy day tbf, in the dry your laps go a lot quicker as less spin outs so queue time will drop and we can rotate drivers quicker.

    Bring on the next day and hope for everyones sake its a dry day!
