Anyone at Knockhill next weekend? My first track day in years and taking my 20 year old son, looking for advice/guidance? :roll:

Forgot to add crashed and burned on my first attempt https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tElPUwvN_mE

If it's dry I will probably be there. I was a member of the track day club last year and did few last winter, but if it's cold wet and greasy be prepared for a number of red flags while they recover cars from gravel etc....

Here is a video from a cold wet winters day.

The current funds/people expecting Xmas presents situation would suggest I won't be participating but I might just pop up and have a look, I'll be in Dunfermline anyways.
Will keep an eye open for the next one though.

Working next week :( it wasn't me leaving today to be honest I have rarely seen another Saab anytime I have been there.
Maybe meet at a track day in the new year it would be a good place for a Saab mini meet.

Thant was me and pal in 1 black Ng900 and 1 black 9-3 SW, drove up from Nottingham Friday evening 6hrs only to arrive at track Sat morning to be told Track day had to be canceled, not happy.
Will be back next year, Track I've always wanted to drive.

Shame.

Wess- long time no see.
How you keeping?
You should give me a heads up next time you plan coming up to the hill, Mike and Stu often around also, am sure you would get some support.

Thought you sold the NG900?

Hi Kev

Made inquiries about buying my old car back, but no luck.
So another was found, slowly getting there, more to do over next couple of months, may do a track day at Doniington next month(12/13 Dec).
Hope to see you up at Knockhill next year.

Regards
Wessy
