Hey guys...Just seen this thread. Didn't realise there were a load of FG people there last weekend, but then I haven't checked in here for a while. Anyway....I'm number 11 in the Caterham Tracksports championship (not sure if you stayed to watch us), but thanks for coming along to watch at least some of the racing....nice to know it wasn't just family and friends up there making the grandstands look slightly less deserted!

Was also my first proper experience of a weekend public session on the Nordschleiffe....wow! Now I know what people mean when they say it gets busy! Navigating round everyone (especially some of the bikers!) was errrrm....interesting!

Hope you all had fun....and if anyone in the UK fancies watching some more Caterham racing.....we're next out 1st weekend of Sept at Snetterton.

#11 in the Race? I think I have not just seen a bunch of Touridrive-pics of you, but also got you several times during the (or a) race:

That = You?

That was the Supersports race you watched. As you have said, my car is black. Well....it looks exactly like this now in fact!

By running very fast into our tents! Actually took a video of it inside my tent so you could hear the bombardment. Might upload it later

I tried to take a video of the lightning and rain but you couldn't see anything so I deleted it :p

I was too busy sleeping in my tent, impervious and uncaring to the rain.

@ArosaMike; seems you may need a new title :lol: Shame we didn't stay around for the Tracksport - we would have done if we'd have known there was an FGer involved! :) Also - what you doing in Leam? I go to Warwick Uni and live there during term times :p

You were also tweeting from your tent how it was leaking. I lol'd. In my non-leaking tent.

Hey, I saw the Mike Hart Caterham when strolling close to the pits. Need to check if I took a photo.

Edit: Nope, only of a "Robert Chappell" car.
