Track Day


Just done a track day on Anglesey circuit driving my son in law's 150 bhp caterham. Good race number, he was 13th in last years championships.

He competes in the caterham Mega Grads series, he gave me a few laps demonstration, I thought bloody hell this is fast, then after 3 laps he told me he was just warming up the tyres up then he went fast!

I did four five lap sessions and I have never taken corners so fast in my life! Only had one little slide on to the grass at the hairpin, Took my wife on 2 laps, she only screamed twice and shut her eyes once.

Terrific experience, not bad for a 65 year old pensioner, we don't all bumble along slowing everyone up!

Might do a track day on my Kawasaki now.
