Silverstone Saturday

Well, as expected it was a fantastic morning out.
Got to silverstone and it was very foggy but we progressed on through the pre drive briefing and then WAIT!!
Had to wait to see if the track was clear enough to go out driving.
20 mins later we were set to go. Donned the bash hat and into the car, a nice light blue Lotus Exige. Out of the pits and onto the track. Jeeeeezzze this car can handle. Took it a bit slow on the first couple of laps getting used to the car and then opened it up to have some fun.
It's amazing how different driving a car on a track is to driving a car on the road. If you don't get the right turn in point to the corner and the right speed you loose it big time.
All too soon it was back to the pits for someone else to have a go. ( time to reflect on where i went wrong and get it right next time)
Second stint out and i new the car so it was get it right through the corners and get better speed.
All in all it was a day to remember and lessons were learnt will definately be doing it again. I GOT THE BUG. And to cap it all i got top of the class.( BIG SWOT )
SO if anyone out there is reading this and fancies having fun on track get to silverstone and book it. You won't regret it.
