Great Pics guys... Was a great day and great to meet you all! Can't wait for JAE now...

How did it go with Stu's clutch in the end? Did you's get it sorted?

All I can offer pics-wise is this! A couple of shots from the end of the day.

A stunning day, can I rewind and do it again please? And meeting Nick (and Laughlin!) & Nafre, I hope we impressed you enough for you to come to JAE 8)

Once again I was so impressed by the club's teamwork, when Stu ripped pieces off his clutch on the track: begging a flare kit from a race team to manufacture new piping (including McGuyvering the borrowed tool when it broke, in order to complete the job), then bleeding the clutch with 2 lengths of pipe and a plastic water bottle, enabling Stu to get safely on his way.

I've been told numerous times that "that's how we roll", but it really was evident yesterday. So proud to be part of this club :thumbleft:

Seeing this made me get off my lazy bum and start sorting the pictures I got. I have mostly pictures of our club stand and STICKERS! (No I don't have a problem, I took pictures of them.
I'll start another topic for the random pictures I collected from japfest. I did collect almost every open bonnet I could find lol.
I really liked how we all jumped in to help stu until we had to go our own way or he fixed the trans.. I mean the civic.
Damn it I can't remember who called it that now

I'm uploading all the photos me and Kim took to Amazon Cloud. I think all the photos Kim took have finished uploading, the ones I took are still uploading.

I've sorted them by who's cars where in the shot, but I may still have a few out of focus ones in some of the folders.

Photos from Japfest Donnington 2017

Would love to rewind and do it all again! Was great to meet all of you too (sorry only had time for a short post earlier) I can't thank you enough for being there on Friday night when the rain came on! :shock: That lid literally saved our bacon! haha

Had a great time camping with you, and as for Lachlan he keeps asking about you and the rest of the guys...so big impression made me thinks! lol

A great little club indeed! I am for one definitely proud to be part of it, as you say Serena the teamwork displayed and the commonality between everyone is something to behold! Great day, amazing people what more could you ask for? "McGuyvering the tool" Love it! :D :D

So glad Stu's Trans... I mean Civic got fixed in the end! :D (It was Lee by the way :lol: )

Can't wait for JAE now... thinking about camping again on the Friday night again if it's available?

As for pictures (and stickers) I only have a few as my camera screwed up and half of the files are corrupted for some reason, (so glad I didn't film the entire weekend, which I was going to! :shock: ) I will put up what I have though. Managed to get a good few shots of the Clubstand too... Didn't even have it on the Grandstand either..DOH!

Will def be Johnny on the spot at JAE...Just wait! Out of interest, do we have an official club photographer? lol :lol:

And yes...This is how we roll, and yes you do have a problem with stickers. I have now developed the same problem! haha

I don't even know when jae is. If it's convenient then I might come otherwise I'll have to pass. I wouldn't say no to using my camera now often though travelling might be a little issue atm.
Since photobucket is being a pain I'm uploading the entire collection of photos from Donington to Facebook. Do we have a Facebook?

Great photos guys, and another great day, I second Serena's motion for rewind and reply :thumbright:

Thanks to all who made it a fabulous laugh as usual, well chuffed with my 1:40 lap and doing Crenna with no brakes :D

Excellent Civic fixing too and the topiary, I'm still loling now :laughing6:

I think that's Lee in the 323f and damn you had issues with that honda in front of you. If they didn't keep blocking then the times might have been even better.
I couldn't do what you guys do, I'd need the whole team to myself lol.
I love the pictures though

Excellent photos again Nathan! That grey civic really did hold me up in the first session before deciding to nearly spin out in front of me....good job I managed to get on the anchors before I hit him lol.

I seemed to get held up by civics in both session........NEED MORE POWER! :lol:
