Had an epic day yesterday. Did the hill climb in an M5 (want) and then had lunch in the hill pavilion with BMW, had a little walk around, did the ATV's with Honda, had a sit down and some refreshments in the BMW owners lounge whilst chatting to Alan Hyde (if you know the touring cars you'll know who he is).

Then did the best part of the day. Goodwood track afternoon with the M power division. Choose your weapons and drive them as much as you like in your hour allotted slot.

M6 gran coupe is unbelievably epic. Absolutely brutal in a straight line and for such a big car, it's damned nimble through the bends as well. Touch a HUD 165mph on the final back straight.

Also got some demo laps with the legend that is Tiff Needel. His car control is simply unreal.

All in all, yeah not a bad day at all.

I went, was a quality weekend. I've put some pics up of the Hondas in the BTCC / WTCC thread. Met Matt Neal and Flash had a quick chat to them both.. made my weekend!!

That Pikes Peak 208 T16 is an animal.. so surprised it didnt come top of the pile on the shootout on sunday.
