What is Seven ownership all about?!? Meeting up with some mates (Tom yellow car, Andy holding the camera) and going sideways for an entire Saturday, burning through AVON CR500 tyres like they're going out of fashion!
|What owning a Seven is all about - having a blast with your mates and going siiiiddeeewaaayyys!|
There was a genuine 'good cause' for all of this sideways madness - the event were we at was 'The Supercar Event' at Dunsfold which is held over two days with all proceeds being given to The Childrens Trust charity.... We (Tom, Andy and I) only attended on the Saturday, but we had epic fun!
The Caterham part of the event was organised by Neil Kaemena and crew with spaces for around ten cars on both the Saturday and Sunday... We arrived about 8:30am for the safety briefing and had an hour or so without passengers to get a feel for the grip levels (which were high!) and to try and get the cars setup as best as possible for minimum rear end grip.

|The queue for tickets began to build up quite quickly.|

I put together a video using some different angles and so on... There's a thirty seven second donut, some nice 11's being laid and general hooning about, so I hope you enjoy it - if you do, please like / thumbs up :-)
Everyone was grinning from ear to ear after their experiences - (as you can see from the picture below). Over the course of the weekend in excess of four hundred tickets were sold, which at £20 a time is over £8,000 raised for Charity - which goes straight to The Childrens Trust and was a record for both days.
|Another happy passenger!|
Dave Clarke from the Lotus7 group put together this great collection of pictures and video clips from the entire weekends' action, which I thought I'd share too:-
