    the other pics may have to wait til tomorrow - this *thing* is driving me crazy tonight!

    no, no let me!

    or we could do it together but we'd have to be ever so careful..............we may *accidentally* push him onto the track by mistake!

    DH and DS9 lined up for an hour to be taken for a spin (literally!) for about a minute or so - reverse at speed, spin the car round, etc etc. didn't get a photo but did do a video which i will attempt to put on YouTube at some point!

    After a little more wandering we made our way back across the track to find a different viewing spot. Some of the areas we wandered through were crowded, others almost empty!



    The seats in the stands were full but I spotted an gap on the grassy bank so we made a dash for it and made ourselves comfy for the next few events.

    This, if I remember correctly, was the 'Euro Cup Megane Trophy Race' - somehow DS9 managed to fall asleep during the race. It was soooo noisy I don't know how he did!













    sorry for the quality of the pics, the cars were all pretty fast ya know. I had lots of photos of the track where I'd missed the cars completely, even with the multi shoot option!

    After a clean up and track safety check it was time for the 'Renault Clio Cup Race' - there were 20 odd cars on the track and it was great fun to watch.... we all really enjoyed those cars!













    The Clios!

    While we waited for the highlight of the afternoon we listened to the trophys being presented and various National Anthems according to whichever nationalilty the winner of each category was.

    DH and DS9 went off in search of ice creams which they found not too far away! 3.00 each, good job they only bought 2!

    And finally the build up began....a demonstration of the Formula Renault 3.5 by none other than............

    followed shortly after by a demo of the Renault F1








    after which we made our way back to the car where we sat for the next 2 hours before finally managing to get to the path which would take us out to the road!












    when we finally got out of there we avoided the main route and travelled along some leafy roads





    before getting caught in up in traffic at the top of this hill.

    as we were held up i thought i may as well take the opportunity to get a few pics of the surroundings!
























    The hold up cleared soon enough and we finally got to the M40 to start the real journey back home, taking a total of 5 hours and 45 minutes since we'd left the circuit!
