Lydden Hill Drifting Day, last one of 2013 on 30th November. Smoking, smoking, smoking! Well not quite……..read on.
This was to be my 1st proper Drift day on a proper and most importantly Dry track!
It was an early start for me, up at 5:50am, quick cuppa & left after 6:30am in darkness. The roads were clear all the way & got to Lydden Hill in just over an hour.
The main pits were already full so parked in the pit area above. Time to sign in. Queued up for about half hour, only to be told that there was no places left!
WTF, my heart sank but I wasn’t beat just yet! Every 10 or 15 mins I would go back to see if any places were available? Only to be told, again & again, No, afraid not, come and check back in about 20mins.At 10 o’clock the girls in the office said I could have a place in the NOVICE group, wanted the Novice/Intermediate group but Novice will do fine I thought
But I would have to come back before each session to make sure the missing drivers hadn’t turned up! WooHoo, that was good enough for me, time to get ready!Removed all my tools and spare wheels from the beamer & my sister signed in for passenger ride. Not long now, couldn’t wait!
