Huge, huge thanks to all involved in organising Saturday's event. A really fantastic day out. Porsche really made us incredibly welcome and it really was a day to be remembered.

Track time was really great, with totally encouraging instructors. Mine was very patient - it being my first time on a track - as I took time to gain confidence and get out of 2nd gear in the first couple of corners! By the end of my session i did not want to get off the circuit and was much happier with my lines. Didn't even get close to losing grip and it was a Sunday drive in the country for Simon my instructor. He probably thought i was in reverse gear. My brakes were more than a little warm at the end though. :shock: :razz:
I handed over my 2nd booked session (totally torn, but I'm a soft touch when it comes to my lad) so that one of the instructors could take my son round in my car as a passenger. I've seldom seen him grinning so much as when he got out of the car at the end.

Can we do it all again next year please? :grin:

Fabulous day chaps, many thanks to all behind the scenes who made this happen :grin:
I know how much goes into getting events sorted.

Also a big thanks to everyone that turned up with their cars, without the cars the event is nothing and boy did we have a good selection. I really love the variety we get with 924's , mint examples or dented and rusty daily drivers, totally original or slightly modified :eek: , something for everyone.

like a few others, my pictures were few due to chatting too much. Nice to catch up with old friends and make some new ones.

Hopefully, we'll see some of you down at Beaulieu in a couple of weeks for the 40th display there

You certainly did, we could smell it really strongly behind you!

Ha ha, brilliant! I thought it was my clutch at first, then noticed my wheels looked rather hazy...
