    Was a good day with a good selection of awsome cars, as you can see. Even though my car was seriously p155ing me of by not starting at times and worn rear pads(AAAGGG!) among other little things i was still running mid 160s. The 700bhp supercharged Viper driven by the young lady i think had the fastest of the day!! She came with a back up car full of slicks and even took of the rear spoiler to gett 200mph.
    Good to meet a few more F.chatters as well. But my car is realy p155ing me of today:(
    The pictures of the cars in the street were were a few of us met in the morning for breakfast, what a sight. I alsotook a **** load of videos of the run to Brunters from the breakfast house with over 20 cars. And loads of vids of the Brunters runs. The face of of the day IMO was the Lambo Galardo v the last edition of the Diablo. The Diablo killed it by a mile:D Wow.
    Big shout out to MOD500 for the heads up on the day;)
    Hey you know how it goes...enjoy!:).....or not:(
    MB: Oh yea the new Ascari was there costing well over 200K WHAT!! Its all carbon fiber though:)

    Mid 160s is quite a bit slower than your last speed trial. Any reason why you couldn't get the same speed as last time?

    If I remember correctly the Viper belongs to a nurse who saved up every penny she earned to buy it.....good luck to her, glad to hear she kicked A****

    Great pics Chaa thatnks for showing them, really like the Ascari from side on but not too sure from the front. Oh and the wheels on that orange car behind yours in the line up are mega, really love split rims with a deep dish, just a pain to refurb when yer missus scraps them!!:)

    Yep, that's the one.

    Chas, bad luck with the problems, i wondered why you were leaving early, i gave you a wave as you passed, but I was travelling subtly today... the lurid lime green Saab convertible :D

    Most astounding sight of the day was the noggy blue Audi RS6 Estate keeping nose to nose flat out with Rich Viant's 360 ... unbelievable.

    Big thanks again to Kevan for the 170+ mph run in his 456. At least I know that performance will not be an issue when deciding 512 or 456 :D

    Ah realy sorry AL i never met you today:( Did you hear me trying to start my car? I met Kevan, yes he is a nice guy. He was telling me that he did not bring the CS becourse the last time he was there his car was to loud. It must be louder than mine:( He noticed the problems i was having:(
    Hey met Viants hes a cool guy who enjoys him self:) Does not take himself to seriously, which is good. He advised me to turn the main battery switch of to try and reset the car, in which i tried but then the bloody thing would not start for the first key turn. Though my car had its moments, it fcuks of from the line bloody quick:D I did some good passes but i was also awere that my rear pads were down to the bone, so breaking was for most on my mind as i aproched the timming car:(

    No, I was doing a bit of industrial espionage for the wife's company in Birmingham this morning, hence why I was only just approaching Brunters as you were leaving.

    Not suprised a 6.0ltr smoked the Gallardo, a 5.7 may be a different matter

    Looks like another fabulous Vmax - thumbs up to Craig for this great event he keeps putting on!
    Some great machinery there and plenty of cars and people that i recognise from the past couple of years of car mayhem!
    That Diablo is immense - the colour is fabulous in the flesh too!
    I really have to get to another Vmax at some point in the future, but my lack of performance car and the fact that they very sensibly don't allow spectators means I can't get down. If anyone can put me in the car boot or get a seat on the roof, I would love to get down again!
    :D

    Bah! Missed it AGAIN. This one was all a bit hush hush, I got invited but then could'nt seem to get hold of Craig for love nor money, reckon its cause I would blitz Smiffy in the Impreza on the twisty bits!!! :D:D:D
    Can understand the cloak and dagger bit tho', it seemed to be getting out of hand a little, but if you're reading Craig, would still love to be involved if possible next time :)
