Hi, I have a black ctr and live in Darlington, but work in Consett. Usually found doing the A1 Durham route, or if its fine, the A68, where I saw a black ctr this week coming into Tow Law. Hi, if you saw me. :D

I actually work on Team Valley, so I might see you around Alan. What colour you gone for? Any distinguishing features? ;-)

I went for the black CTR - I like the others, but I fancied black from the start.


I usually visit one of our tool builders in Team Valley industrial Estate, Princes Park, the company is called TDX. Mine is KY02 *** silver with a BMC induction kit. Flash your lights if you see me as I have done it so many times and I usually get blank looks, miserable gits!!!!

suavebob I think I have seen you about but have decided not to flash or wave at other CTRS any more. I'll start up again :wink: What reg are you so I can spot you?

I am usually on the A1 between 8.00am and 8.30am from Darlo and Sedgefield where I work.

Nevermind mate, but you'll enjoy the BTCC race. Croft is a great circuit to watch them. A good spot is to watch them at the chicane at the start of the circuit. Pretty awesome speeds they go through there. Have a good time mate.

I know exactly what you mean, after you get the blank stare you want to get out, stop their car and say "I was just saying hello you miserable fecker!!!!"

Ive seen a couple around lately but never actually been passing to flash or wave.

Saw a Red one near Sacriston on Tuesday night, just next to the witton gilbert bypass. Women driving with a kid in the back, she never even bothered to look.

Any one of the local lads done their MAC course??

I got my Black CTR from Minories Metro Centre in Sept 02, and the dealer never mentioned a single word about MAC. It was only throu this forum that i heard about it.

Emailed MAC last week and had a call from Ray Bradley last nite, who will be taking me out for the day on this MAC course on the 12th Aug- i cant wait! Heard so much good reports about it. anyone here had him??? Wot can i expect?? He jus told me that he'll come up 2 my place by abt 9am, then head over 2 Northumberland to country roads, and he sed hopefully roads i never been on (!!), over the border to Scotland, stop for a sandwich and pop, then head bak to mine for abt 5pm- learing the full capabilities of our CTR- yeah baby!! Cant wait!!!

I was booked in with Ray to do the course back in June but had to cancel due to the problems i was having with the alarm.

Im now booked in for August 26th.
Ray's brilliant. He's the guy that me and 3 other lads did a skidpan session with down at Aykley Head police HQ's and learned a load about controling the car not to mention had some fun. :)
