I'm currently considering buying a cheap saxo or 106 to throw around oulton and/or anglesey a few times this year.

Considered taking VXR on but its no where near as much fun as previous track saxo/106s.

I'll most likely be doing Anglesey and Oulton in the civic hopefully. Already booked to go to the ring in August too!

Need to get a few bits a bobs done first before I will fully unleash it on track. Baffled sump is top of the list I think!

I need to sort funds but I want to get to Anglesey and Oulton again this year. I also fancy giving the strip a try so I might be heading to the pod or Shakespeare county raceway at some point.

Lydden was awesome, track was a little greasy. GoPro videos have come out wicked aswell.
Brakes didn't fade one bit! Well pleased.
Fastest lap i've noticed so far was 56 secs.

Ill be tagging along with my Dad for most of this season. Going halves with him on the costs in his Civic.

Already done Silverstone (Stowe) and we have Croft, Cadwell and Oulton already booked.

Probably do another 3+ at Oulton

There's an rs owner day at croft soon, sure it's only about £130 as well

Which is cheap for croft

I want to try do croft and knock hill, don't want to go too far untill I get a trailer or truck
