I'd provisionally booked the day with a view to checking the weather three days before the event and booking once I knew it was definitely going to be dry. The forecast showed a lot of rain, so I decided not to book, and quite rightly so... By all accounts it was extremely wet, and there were three accidents - certainly not what I was making a 220 mile round trip for!
Nevertheless, another session at Cadwell was available yesterday (with MSV track days this time) and being a bank holiday Monday - how could I turn that down. The price was only a tenner more than booking through the lotus7 club and the weather forecast was dry - it was a no brainer!
Unfortunately none of my mates could attend - so I left home early (5am!), and blatted up to Cadwell Park. The first half of the drive there was cold and boring, but the second half was great with some fun A and B roads which helped to break up the long journey.

Having had the car flat floored by Rob at Rat Race Motorsport last week I was extremely keen to check out the new setup. In short, the handling is vastly improved; the car now turns when I want it to - so if you're having understeer woes I'd highly recommend getting your car flat floored by Rob based on my experience.
Below is a video of three laps where I wasn't caught up by any other cars. Hope you enjoy.
