    Great day at Lydden spectating again today. Great to see so many people there and all the winter projects having a shakedown. There were a couple of incidents where the flags were out and no one seems to pay a bind bit of attention which really needs to be addressed but other than that a spot on day and well done Lez for another top day

    I had a great day, a nice chilled atmosphere but Jesus Christ some people need to learn the meaning of the flags! I don't understand how it takes a marshal to actually have to walk out on track in front of people to make them stop at the pit lane for the red flag!!

    Apart from that well done for another great day.

    was a cool day! had a laugh passengering and crewing for loose.

    i didnt notice some people ignoring flags, but at the same time, there was spins and people everywhere and marshalls having a little chat when the next cars are flat out in to a carnage corner....

    no ones perfect :)


    thanks for a good day. :) mad driving.

    Was a good day, first time at lydden and first time in s14. Missed my first session though due to the massive que at signing on, seemed the que was full of people doing paperwork for passenger rides seemed to make it move real slow.

    Had an awesome day despite plowing into the barriers on one of my first laps. Soon got the hang of it though and can't wait to go again and improve further.

    My first time at Lydden and first time out of a playpen but even I was getting annoyed with people slowing down and essentially queing up for entry :( several times we had to stop!

    Regarding flags... These weren't actually explained in the briefing despite the bloke saying he was going to. For a first timer like me that's quite important but I had it explained by mates anyway...

    Flag problem is easy to solve. If you dont pay attention to flags you're banned from your next session. Simples

    Evening hope everyone had a good day, All in all i felt the day when well, dispite issues at the beginning of the day with signing in. Many thanks to you all for the turn out and to those that make these days possible, we couldnt do it without them.
    I do have a few issues,
    First is people ignoring flags they are there for your safety and the safety of others around you, it is your jobs as drivers to look for them and obey them, they aren't just being waved for the fun of it.
    Second is people swapping wrist bands, mainly passenger ones but there where one or two drivers aswell, you may think that paying is all about lydden trying to make money but it isn't, again its about safety and a duty of care, We caught a few today and it will not be tolerated.
    Third i'm sad to say is aimed at one indvidual, The COCK in the white chaser that decided to be a hero, skidding out of the paddock and up the hill. Its idiots like you that give will see the end to drifting at circuits, Drifters get a bad rap at the best of times without twats like you adding to it. If you want to skid do it on the track that many of us work hard to supply you with.

    Brilliant day today. Was the first time that I've been to one of these and it was really cool seeing everyone tearing it up (sometimes literally)

    Got a few pics with my mums compact camera lol. I'll have to get an SLR for next time.
