That's what I was thinking to. I was at that round and was amazed how quickly they fixed it. Like my photo, lets make ST's lead the way.

Tell me about it I got home and thought hey this isn't my car haha

Found it really good, lost a downpipe bolt and I think my pads have killed my discs but apart from that really enjoyed it. I was in the black st.

How about you?

Really enjoyed it, you car looked quick on track if a little dirty lol. What did slightly spoil it for me is caterams far to late over takes into the corners. They are so low you commit to the apex and you just can't seem em. Donington park is not a easy track to drive, I have laped castle combe in the mk7 fiesta, but I found the ST performed well. Did 50 laps in total and a average mpg of 10 lol. Would recommend this track but spend the extra £20 (got there super early and got a free empty one) and get a garage. Makes a lot more pleasurable day. I want to do some laps at ford fair will hope to get a stiffer anti role bar and some blistein B8 dampers.

You can also watch in HD

I know it was filthy! Cleaned it the day before aswell and then didn't have much washing gear with me to give it a wipe over.

I shared a garage with my mate in his cosworth which was a good job as a forgot to book a garage

Did you manage to time any of your laps. Still got to look through all the footage but a 1.37 is my best so far.

No I didn't bother timing it, was my first outing on the track as a driver so didn't see much point
