There are some handling tests in the morning, followed by sessions lapping the full GP circuit in the afternoon, and the mixture of cars is very entertaining - oldest car this year is from 1917, right up to a Porsche Cayman GTS and Alfa 4C, with pretty much everything in between (Ford GT40, Skyline GTR, Pug 205 GTI, Aston DB3, etc). I'm car 38.
It's well worth a look and you can get up close to all the cars in the (National) paddock. Did I mention it's FREE?!
Yep, nothing broken, and it was in an area with no spectators so not much embarrassment either! In the later session people were spinning off at the end of the Wellington straight, right in front of the grandstand and suites people were watching from
Nobody crashed, though there were a couple of near misses!
JamesMk3: Rear left wheel bearing replaced. What a saga. Can now hear noise coming from front right, and alignment is completely knackered. FML.

wannabe: I've had both front bearings replaced on the missus' car over the past few months and it's STILL making a droning noise... lol. Need to check if the mechanic actually replaced the correct one the second time I took it in!!

FFS Corders: Are the wheels straight? Buckles can cause a drone

wannabe: Hmmm... That's an interesting idea... no wheel wobble on the missus' car, which I would have thought was a strong indicator of being out-of-round, but I guess they could be bent side-to-side..??

wannabe: Ooooh, interesting - thanks, Howard. I'll have to get the tyres swapped round to see if it makes a difference! I will be most annoyed if it is tyres, seeing as they are only a few months old...

howardb66: If it is the tyres, don’t chuck them away, try getting them shaved.

wannabe: That sounds pervy haha.

V6: I had an education in dampers today. I like expensive ones. Floaty, not bouncy for the win.

Zed.: that all depends on what you call 'expensive'
