Gary's 50th - Brands

The day after we got back (Wednesday), some friends had organised a bit of a special day for me. It was a driving day at Brands Hatch and even though I still had a bad foot I was not going to let that stop me having a laugh.

It consisted of the following:

  • Full briefing with an instructor.
  • 15 minutes driving a high perfomance Megane Renaultsport 230 F1 Team R26 (230hp). I scored 78 out of 100.
  • 15 minutes lapping session in an Audi powered single-seater. I was first away, no-one overtook me but I overtook 5 others (there were 13 out in our group). I also had the 3rd fastest lap.

Pictures 35 onwards are of Malcolm who went out as a passenger for a few laps in a Le Mans car.

Overall, a wonderful day out despite it pissing down most of the time. I must say a big thank you to all the people who made this happen.
