The camcorder was fixed by a sucker mount bracket(i bought from the camera shop) to the rear window....oh by the way that is my misses,that was not long after i first met her,so she was abit nervous and she doesnt drive...so fair play to her for trusting me... :D

The cars also running the standard 205/65/15 tyres... :driving:

Not if the seats are designed for comfort and dont have much side support,theres less support with the LS..

so the gear selector acts like a grab handle :D :D

Not sure of the "blue thing" :D ...anyone going up there this saturday,be aware of these little low kit cars as it would be easy to run over the top of um,and look in your mirrors alot....nothing behind one glace...look again and theres some mighty TVR or Lotus Carlton bearing down on you,best to indicate and move out the way for um..

Take it steady for the first few laps,seen to many cars go off on there first lap :ohmy: .

also before this year,you had 5 laps and that was it...it was easy to cook your brakes in the first few....this year it will be a timed session of 15 minutes so you should be out on track for longer even more chance of cookin the brakes.. ;)

I will be up there on the AUTOBAHNSTORMERS pitch(bringing the 400 up)so dont be afraid to come over for a chat... :) i will keep a look out for is and ls Lexus models..

If you want to drive on the track,get there for the drivers safety meetings which i think start at 8.30am,and remember to sign the disclaimer form or they wont let you on...oh and theres a sound level test if your motors got a loud zorst. :o

There should also be less cars out on track so it should be safer.

Good luck.
