    Hey Jim , the word I used was purring like a prized pussycat , or shortened version anyway . But now I've noticed in my 2nd or 3rd post it's deleted my description of you and Rich to say prized ***** , but there is another word that would fit starting also with a "P " . Let me reassure you both the word I used in my original was the first part of pussycat . Anyhow if I sound a bit muddled i'm tired and now going to bed ..... started for the ferry early this morning .... Later Jim

    I've been to the Victoria Inn a couple of times, as I used to work only a couple of miles away from there. That'll do nicely, Tim.

    If you want to do the Llandow track thing, though, you really need to do the full experience and eat in the greasy spoon at the circuit, the Chequered Flag.

    I think the answer to a track day might be to just see if I can book a few hours at Llandow cart circuit . As the cost for the lads coming from a distance would be enough just getting to the Victoria , without the cost for a full blown track day experience in something like a race prep Supercar . But my biggest fear would be that a couple of members that are attending , know how to drive at high speed , as I know they certainly don't drive their present cars to their potential . So I must be mindful of their age , and driving experience when booking any type of competitive driving skills fun . But you are right in respect of the venue .

    Hi Tim,

    Apologies, but I'll not be attending this meet.

    In a nutshell, close to 500 miles for a spot of lunch, no matter how good, is a tad too far.

    Considering there is chance for some track action which I'd not have time to attend, I thought you ought to know sooner rather than later.
