    Unfortunately i don't think i will be, otherwise i may have headed down to Llandow to watch some of the track action.

    Still need to sort a few things on the car before the RR day too - just finding the time :(

    Awesome Dan. Had a really good time there. The car held up really well and after your help it didn't throw up any problems. Thanks again. I think it's the beginning of session 2 I thought I'd use my new limiter for fun as well.
    It held up well to the opposition too, overtaking all the MX-5s which I was pleased with :) And even flat out around the track it still averaged just over 16 MPG!

    There are a few videos here if anyone is interested, with a few 'oh ****' moments left in :)

    I had a ride in a Westfield which was fun, because it had a supercharged Hayabusa engine in it with over 305 hp at the wheels. That thing brought a new meaning to the word fast. There is a video of that as well, the first two laps are just warming up and it's already much faster than all the other cars.

    I didn't realise you were getting things painted, I bet you can't wait to see what it puts out on the rolling road now.

    It's looking like it should be a really good day. And it doesn't really matter if it's wet because there is plenty of room for everyone to stand inside out of the rain.

    Glad it all went well mate :)

    2 hours of footage from the last few weeks - will have a look a little later :)

    Only having the vinyl'd bits painted properly, I did the mirrors and centre of the front bumper in black to give it a Cupra look and its starting to lift so having it done properly.

    I just hope it all goes to plan tomorrow - hate leaving my car with anyone, even though i know the guy and have had loads of work done from him over the years.

    Enjoyed those vids - really want to take the Leon on track but too scared i'll kill it

    Anyone taking gopros on the day to film the convoy/power runs? Would be nice to see a little video made :D
    I might stick my gopro on the car to shoot some vids on the way there, and possible setup a tripod for the dyno runs

    That would be awesome mate. I was going to film using my phone but its not quite the same thing. A tripod setup for the runs would be brill! :)

    Don't forget folks it's THIS Sunday - I can't wait :)
