    Didn't those offset pedals on the BMW used to drive you mad, Graham ? Glad I never bought a manual BMW now . . . I'm sure they are like that for a reason (or maybe not!!!) but I found it a really uncomfortable driving position when trying to control the clutch.

    :) We were chastized by the management, but it was fun. Another great Mbclub.co.uk day out, long may they continue. On the time trial I had Ray as a passenger, I needed extra time, my excuse and I am sticking to it (no offence Ray) :D

    Fantastic day, well worth £68.54! (plus £50 petrol!). It makes the effort worthwhile to hear that everybody else also enjoyed it - my only criticism is that I'd have preferred more driving (drifting :D ), than the braking bit, but I suppose that you never know when that knowledge will come in useful.

    Did somebody say that the SILVER car was better than the others? ;) :cool:

    OK, my pics:

    Matt giving it some welly:

    I put it to you most honourable Mr. Walker Sir that perhaps the Rover "suits you sir".

    Gonna trade in then? :crazy:
