Here is a bit of footage at Mallory Park before my head gasket went.
As you can see it took a few laps for me to see where the track went.

No problem Chris,I was sort of expecting it with 95k on the clock.
Must find somewhere better to mount the camera.
We are looking at doing Bedford again on 23 jan if you are interested.

the first trackday i did the visors dropped down at the end of a straight, so i took them straight away.

Got Back on Sunday from a 4 day camping trip to Anglesey and also did a trackday there with NORLOGers. Had a great time but Dico`s Blue Beast never made the track, looks like it was a MAP sensor fault. Anyways here`s a few pic`s and a quick Vid

good to see you guys on Saturday. Nice photos monty, whats that thing on your front reg plate? Didn't get any video of my exploits but BaT did some good photos. I don't bother to do photos on the track anymore the pros do them so much better.

watching your videos Monty I think i would quite quickly get bored of that circuit. The straight to hairpin and back again was what was the difference between the Coastal and GP. The Coastal didn't have it and although the circuit was shorter it was more enjoyable. just my opinion.

Looking good Monty,it's nice to see the Elan on track holding it's own against the modern stuff you see out there.
I think you got your money's worth out of those tyres.
I can't wait until next Fridays track day at Abingdon. :-D

Did Oulton Park on friday with LoT, managed to upload a vid last night but it`s a little boring. The Morning was very damp and i nearly lost it at Druids on the sighting lap, that would of been embarrassing :shock: it was only a twitch but for some reason knocked my confidence so i just couldn`t get up to speed. Two cars were damaged on the day and elise which went off at Druids, smashed rear end was the result, mine you he did carry on the day with a bit of help from Gaffer tape but thats a huge repair bill. Then later that day a Caterham on the back of a flatbed with it`s front wheels hanging off :shock: So i suppose at least mine came home in one piece.

I`ve also got Donny next month, hopefully i`ll put a bit of rubber down this time :?

Monty, good video. What camera did you use?
Seems slightly better than the average video.
Last track day this season for me 11-19-10.

Steve, it`s nothing special just a small camcorder. I use it on a Clamp mount attached to the roll hoops.

Toshiba Camileo Pro cost me £99 a couple of years ago

also have a mini cam that goes on the front number plate (can just about see it on the trackday photo)
