Retro Cars Track Evening – Brands Hatch 25-05-10

In between work and house moving chaos I took a day out to head down to Retro Cars HQ in Kent for a decent catch up, some office based shenanigans and a track day!

Magic Happening:

Firstly I have to own up on selling out; I took the Roadster…Maybe I’m getting soft but with a 4 hour each-way journey and an evening of track action I took the quieter comfy way out (if coilovers and a bucket seat is a comfy way out…)

The track day was organised by Motorsport Vision (massive thanks to Nick for the hook up!) and was held at Brands Hatch.  Now I’ve never even visited Brands before, let alone driven it so I was suitably brimmed with fear and excitement as I noise tested, signed on and bagged a pit garage!   Now the Roadster did qualify in the at least 20 years old “Retro” band, but compared to some of the entries I was pretty embarrassed.  The quality and mix of cars was insane!  I wish I had more time to run round with the camera but, well, I was having too much fun!

It was an open pit event so you could have as much fun as you and your car could take!  I did about four fifteen minute  sessions, taking Andy and Simon (as if you don’t know I mean Team Retro Cars) out for rides.  Disappointingly they were pretty unshakable, though I’m sure there was some twitching doing on as we hit Paddock Hill bend sideways!   Talking of the track…WHAT A TRACK!!!  Paddock Hill bend is amazing; like a roller coaster: off the pit straight, on the brakes, down to 3rd, hang it out, straighten up, power on through the compression at the bottom (the Roadster sump guard was catching the ground at the bottom shooting sparks out the back!), then it was back on the brakes for the hairpin!  The old girl did me proud, not only passing some more expensive/ better cars on track, but not missing a beat  over the whole weekend!

The track action only makes up about 2/3 of these events for me.  The atmosphere in the pits, the chance to chat to other drivers, check out the cars and catch up with the Sothern contingent gold plate the whole affair.

Massive thanks as always to Si and Andy from Retro Cars, Simon and David  from RSM for the pics and Motorsport Vision for the hook up!  Good to see you chaps and I can’t wait for the next hang out!

More pics can be found on the RSM FlickR Account.
