308 Review.

Posted 28th June 2008 at 17:38 by Luke

Well seeing though the 307 is back in the garage for MORE working doing on it, I have been given the pleasure of driving this beast - which infact I rather like.

It's a 1.6 THP Sport (150bhp). At first, when I picked up the car I knew it was quick but as I read on the internet Thursday night - these models are Turbo and now I can tell it is the more miles I have done.

It's quite well equipped too with Bluetooth Handsfree, Seat senses someone is there for seatbelt, MP3 Player, Cruise Control and all usual crap.

It's a bit thirsty at times, especially...

It's been a while..

Posted 27th June 2008 at 12:44 by danzman1991

We'll, I've not "posted to my blog" in a while now, not really sure why.. It's not like I've been doing much I've been on "Study Leave" for the last 6 weeks, and we're back to School on Monday, strangely, I'm looking forward to it Lol, see people I haven't seen in 6 weeks Lol. All this time I've had off, I've supposed to be working. I sent myself an Email with ALL my Business Essays, so I could work on it.. I haven't opened the Email with all the attachments yet

Nothing else has really happened, or is going to happen, pretty boring I guess. Stereophonic's...

Isle Of Wight Holiday Blog

Posted 18th June 2008 at 09:09 by Nij
Updated 18th June 2008 at 09:31 by Nij

Decided to do a blog of our holiday....

Monday 16th June
We set off at 6am.
Drove down to Portsmouth, stopping at my aunties in High Wycombe for a coffee at about 10am.
Was a nice drive down, with only a little bit of traffic/rush hour, until we got off the ferry, where we scraped the underside of the car on the way off, which did some damage to the exhaust (sounded like a heat shield rattling)........
We arrived in the Isle of Wight at 2pm, and decided that as we couldnt get into the holiday park till 4, we would have a little mini tour around Ryde and...

Round 5 Northern Speed Championship

Posted 17th June 2008 at 12:43 by Andy72

Round 5 Northern speed Championship

Held at Barbon Manor stately home in Cumbria, near Kirby Lonsdale. They close the entrance road a few times a year for very popular hillclimbs up the entry road. Very well spectated too as can be seen on one of the pics attached.

I was always going to be a bottom feeder as far as class positions went on this event due to this being a shared round with another championship who have stupidly quick cars, 200bhp R5 Turboís, Lotus Elise 190 that gets trailored everywhere and is as modified as the regs allow. There was also 3 other elises...

Up, up and away!

Suie booked a balloon ride for the two of us approx. a year ago. The experience was a gift from Suies nana, Dorothy... it was something to remember her by. RIP.

We've been trying to book the flight for 11 months now. The way this works is you have to ring the pilot up at 11pm the night before your flight. Dependant upon weather conditions, he/she tell you if the flight is going ahead and from which site you will be taking off from.

We booked a dawn flight... and eventually, tonight, we got the all clear to fly! So... at 6am in the morning, we shall be flying from...

A walk on the wild side, and the hidden treasures you find

Posted 15th June 2008 at 21:25 by MikeCracknell

The area in which i live in has a few disused railways within 10 miles.

These railways used to be the main lines that ran people all over the south east, then they were all pulled up in 1963, leaving only the present day railway structure.

When we have been out exploring in the woods along the old tracks, we have been treated to some real amazing things, and when you walk through woods, it isn't the kind of thing you'd expect to find in a woods!

Start of the walk: A large pile of sand in a quarry which is still used.

The white wee beastie...

Posted 14th June 2008 at 20:06 by Simo (Simo' Says...)

26th November 2005. That was the day myself and Suie travelled upto Glasgow to pickup my White VTR from Scott. I never intended to modify the car at all, but did change some of the mod's, which Scott had made

Time has flown and now it's time to sell the VTR on to make way for more white wee beasties! With my new Megane, Suie's Pug GTi, the VTS and the VTR things are a bit cramped. Not to mention Suie's new 197 should be arriving in 2 weeks time!

So this morning, I pushed the VTR out of the car-port (blady battery is flat!) and gave it a quick wash and a hoover!...

Planning a weeks Camping Holiday in Scotland

Posted 12th June 2008 at 22:17 by MikeCracknell

That time of year is getting closer for a group of us that are going camping again in the Highlands of Scotland.

It is the third year we have done this, and each year we have done has been really good fun.

The first year we stayed on a campsite on Loch Ness, and that was 35 miles each way to Inverness, the nearest shops!

Last year, we stayed at Glen Nevis Campsite - a little bit closer to down here, by about 40 miles! This is the 600 miles route we face this year:

It was around this time I joined Sax-P and everyone pointed me in the right direction!

The concert

Posted 3rd June 2008 at 23:24 by shooorn94 (ShoooRn94's Blog.)

Finally after months of searching back in March I finally grabbed some tickets to the Foo fighters at 3am or some crazy time all those months ago and got to see them for the second time yesterday.
The gig was in Manchester a 2 hour and a bit trek by car to the City centre, but we (2 of my best mates and myself) decided we'd camp the night before and the night after to get our energy back for when we return home.

After the long drive after work I was nackered (as that Sunday our network routers for the till checkouts and the cash office as400's went down leaving me as the
