Booked up for Sat 12th November
Still places left
Run by a great bunch, not the usual 'hot hatch' events.


Would be good to see some more Audis out !

excellent John!
At least it's in the right direction for a change.
I've spent this year going the wrong way round knockhill.

I'm sure I have more than 400 horses in there somewhere

I'll be there on 8th Oct 9-11 for another really well-org'd track day - SIDC. Check their website as there may be places available.
Usually there are 20-odd lotuses and a bunch of misfits like myself.
Passengers ride for free.

Hey Jock,
Whats the S4 up to now?
Looking forward to a wee catch up bud,

Ed- The Chap who did the 35 years of Quattro at Rhu
Eddy

Put the S4 through her paces on Sat,
excellent event as usual.

Big thanks Jock, mainly for reminding me to do a cool down lap  
and for having some spare fuel, the v8 really drinks when running flat out.
Thanks mate

So first impressions of the old bus, pretty good really, I was impressed on how well the standard car coped with punishment of Knockhill, suspension felt good and although she under-steered it was easily managed, but I guess you just get used to driving 4wd cars with the engine up front.
The un-surprising issue with brakes was my fault as I decided to use standard pads and although I did get a new set of drilled and grooved disks from M-tec this set up was very poor, having to break much earlier than hoped.

Anny hoo, the old girl did well and although she is a motorway muncher I managed a time of 1min 6sec which I thought was ok with cheepo Falken tyres. I am sure if I really tried and with a good set of tyres and a clear run my old b6 would get round in a few seconds under that.

So after this whats needed ?, well the brake warning light came on late in the day (poss a ABS sensor) the near side lower arms are shot and the tyres are rather scrubbed.

Will try to get a vid up.

My friend was up in his Corrado, white in colour, he's on here as he has a Misano RS4 too.

Here's a vid of me chasing down John Gell in his Jiapur Red B5 (with a good 50 BHP over me) and Eddy in his B6. There's a few laps of me flying in front of my pals' GTR before I let him past and we catch Eddy sideways at the hairpin.

Great vid... my car was doing pretty good up the straights, just unfortunately runs out of grip and I run out of talent through the corners... hopefully get more practice next year...
