An amazing day/weekend in every respect! The organisation was impeccable, with track times running spot on all day and food being served on the dot of allocated time it was all very Porsche/German!!! Great work from the whole team in the months preparation and the whole day. I think Ian (Mr P) sacrificed seeing any of the show himself, just to keep the track seasons running to time!!

The track time made the show for me! A once in a lifetime experience, getting to grips with the car under expert supervision whilst seeing other 924's living upto their pedigree at the same time!!

My car had 4 sessions (3 with me, 1 with my brother) and I was really impressed with how the instructors allowed us to push as hard as we wanted in the damp/wet conditions without reaching for the door handle once!!!

I struggled with the low friction area doing donuts - but I blame the car for being 'safe' on the limit and preferring to under steer rather than wag it's tail!!

Pushing hard around the handling circuit and I gained confidence during the day so I was exploring the limits of grip, but this was stretching my confidence, more than the car!!

It was great to see how it behaves on the limit though and I'm very reassured!! Once my major misfire is sorted I'm excited to start using it much more!!

And finally a big thank you to all those who made a deliberate effort to come over and chat and complement the car, it was great to hear you kind words after all the set backs! And sorry to those who liked the LOUD exhaust - it's going ASAP in favour of something less brash!!

What a phenomenal day! :worship: Thanks to everyone who helped organise it, all the Porsche people, and everyone who came and made it the event it was.
I didn't take many photos - too busy talking to people. :oops:
I think this was my favourite:
