Japfest 2006 - Castle Coombe Racing Circuit, Wiltshire. Sat 20th May
I have never been to a car event before, plenty of bike rallies etc but nothing to do with cars. Was expecting a load of boy racer idiots with caps and chav wear, but everyone turned out to be really quite normal-ish.
What a bloody brilliant day out, we were the first group on the track at 9am and it was pissing it down most of the time and a couple of guys spun off (not me though thankfully)
One guy slid his car into a wall and completely trashed one whole side, and the poor bugger had to drive it home afterwards. He was the only one who didn't have extra track day insurance too....what a bitch!
Another guy spun whilst trying to overtake me and came past me backwards!
Anyway, needless to say, I want to do another track day as soon as possible.....aparently there is another event at Castle Donnington in September so I might just go to that too.
If you can see the clanger......that one is mine
A selection of on the track pics for your amusement.
By the way, I know that the number plates are all visible, but these images have been posted in public anyway, and there are far too many of them for me to edit so bugger it!
