Have a spin up to trim and rebuild my 33, a good 8 hours would probably do. (for you)!

Bring the trackday 156 for an NCT for the laugh.. .

Is the airbag light on??

Personally I'd go for the 75...

I would like to bring my GTA [ god I love typing those letters ] but I'd be killed by a few good friends if I did.

I'm in London this weekend (over there for work next week and taking advantage to have a weekend away with the OH), but would any of you guys who are experienced in trackdays consider a passenger who wanted to get an idea of what's involved?

Feel free to say yes or no, and outline what you'd expect if you said yes. I can imagine a passenger that spent their time being a shadow driver, and clinging to grab handles would be a nuisance!

errr, did that include the drill? to use it?

One of the best gifts the OH got me was a drill set in b and q, with all sorts of drill, screwdriver, and socket attachments

It was a selfish gift as it doubled the space for his shirts (He's 92 of them, why would any man need that many shirts??????) but he is not allowed interfere with them

He cannot use the drill. A. He is not allowed, as it is mine. B. He will put it "back" wrong

I always smile when I end up using the drill at the memory of getting it (the OH went into B and Q saying "the girlfriend told me to get a drill), how the whole family (his son and daughter) have been involved in projects using it, I taught his son how to use a drill, and the difference it has made.

Mad in a way, but really nice memories, I'll alway remember the first time his son used it and the sense of achievement he had

Not the OH though, can't be trusted around power tools (Unless it's to buy them )

nouggatti, you're a hoon

As for been a passenger in a track day car all you need is a €10er to pay mondello & a helmet for your head. Bring a 'sick-bag' if you are the nervous kind

A friend wants to come to Mondello on Saturday. So the 1st part of the day I ended up fitting a passengers seat & safety belt back into the SW. I stripped out the pass seat air bag module out before fitting, tbh for all the effort the module didn't weigh much. I also fully sorted out the mounting hardware for the driver seat. Car now weighs 1220kgs

In the afternoon I loaded a scrapper car with trim, wiring looms, old suspension parts, brake discs, etc that came form the SW as I stripped it.

155 or 75 next week, I'll start a thread on it

If you are ever heading up there without a passenger and wouldn't mind me being one, I'd love to experience it

I'm not nervous, but I do work my feet as if I'm driving, I'm really interested in the whole experience!

I'm wondering if you are experiencing dirty old man syndrome altogether
The images your post brought into my mind are disturbing.

Not me!! The only dirty old man around here is Rory


Going around mondello either as a driver or Passenger is cool . The nearest I got was at the 100 years of Alfa when we were allowed to drive around mondello in formation .
