I miss meeting all our nutty awesome passionate drivers and exige friends. There is a special excitement everytime Anglesey or one of my drives over starts. It’s so much fun thinking of arriving at some carpark somewhere and seeing all our multicoloured smarties parked there. Full of awesomeness and passion.

Driving off together feeling the thrill of power, lightness, serious driving skills and a day or two of like minded fun on track or a holiday through mountains. The surprise and joy of meeting others at the track.

Roll on normalcy and exiges gatherings again.
Thanks for the good times 😊

Very true Pierre. I've read that the UK should have the over 50's receiving the first vaccination by end of May which might allow a return to some normality. Doesn't bode well for Anglesey though :(

Agreed chaps.

We are lucky that we are still here but it’s firmly life on hold!

I can’t see the lockdown lasting past March. They didn’t keep us locked down forever last time, I’m sure the track days will be back on this summer. I’m all ready to get the car back out once the weather gets a bit better anyway.

I’m with you Pierre on this one. I wasn’t too bad when the weather was great but this latest incarceration is getting on my nerves. Every day is the bloody same, Breakfast, read papers, click on exiges,com, Nyloc, Autosport etc. Maybe a bike ride. Make a meal, beer/red wine, TV, Sleep. Then go to bed . . . wake and repeat.
At least we Northern chaps managed a fish and chip run but it’s so long ago I can’t recall when it was. And I saw British GTs at Oulton.
Now, I ache to be joining the convoy south to Anglesey and racing round Europe with Nyloc.
I’m in next batch but one for a jab so not all bad I suppose.
Hope we see you this year👍

Is there really a lockdown? Seriously? Masks apart where deemed necessary, everyone in our location seems to be like acting like it was 1999.

Trackdays should be an essential journey 😁

I echo your thoughts Pierre. I'm hopeful for Anglesey though.

A balaclava and Helmet has to be pretty covid secure?

A pint, curry and a drive will be absolute Nirvana!
