Great setup by Maxton on their shock 
. I would say the wear is perfect,  the grip on the Metezler K2 and 1 was amazing..  Was a great day out,  can't get over how good the tyres were. Managed all 7 sessions at nearly 59 years old 😂

It had no problem tipping in with that 200 tyre,  like Dave Moss said it was down to suspension and geometry setup. .

Hi Fulgy,  yes was a great day,  I am so sorry you couldn't come.  I hope you resolved your engine issues.  I was pleased with the the tyre wear , thanks to Mr Moss who gave me free advice.  We are going to organise a  3 day European one in the spring next year,  I will keep you posted.  I hope my engine 1127 big Bore is done by then .
After 35 years of track I couldn't believe how track tyres have evolved.  I had one slide it was gradual with plenty of warning. 
Hopefully we will see you at the European one Wink

Hi Andy, you're still alive! 
I was talking to Ed about this a few weeks ago, explained my reasoning and past experience of "group" days but he went anyhow! 
Was at Mallory with Perky recently, agreed we should organise an old RSVR.net meet up in the Autumn, probaly beer/curry Donington way. You up for that?

Hey Paul, yes mate alive and still kicking....

Yea I saw you comments on here a little while ago, in fairness it wasn't too bad for traffic and as long you gave respect when overtaking all in all it was a great day, even at my age we still managed to get out for all the sessions.... and even managed to get some reasonable times in with out any real drama's.

Yes I would be up for that and it would be great to get the old gang together, I'm sure Neil would be up for it as well and we may even get the pit bitch Spike to come as well this time.... 

Hope you and Sarah are enjoying retirement to the Country, and I haven't spoken to Perky for a while, must give him a call soon.

Ed, if you read this, good to catch up with you and the Bionic man, and hope you got back OK.
