The parade laps were for Vauxhall Fronteras. Possibly one of the worst cars ever made IMHO
PMSL that did make me giggle! :D Working for Vauxhall and hearing what people say about them there is one thing, but seeing them do that is an absolute classic! :p

Did you see the crash on the last Radical race? :eek: The white one drove into the wall on bend 1 at lord only knows what speed :( Made me go all funny inside and took ages for the driver to get out!! Ruined the car, and I bet didnt do him much good neither though at least he was walking! :(

Never been to Rockingham before so was an experience! Not the easiest place to take pics though :hmph:

Will add mine here soon when photobucket decides to play ball :p

OMG i spoke to the one of the Challeneg organisers at Donnington and she said it was for Renault owners. What the hell has a useless 4 wheel drive shed got to do with racing.

Thought it would be hard work for Photography thats why I prefer tracks like Mallory low fences and good access all round.

Thanks for the pictures.

Nice pictures there supa-dupa-coopa. I agree about Rockingham. Although you can see all the track, you are a bit remote for taking pictures. I took my camera but everything was so far away the cars would have looked liked ants. I didn't take any photos at all in the end.

Nice pics Jo :nice: Sounds like a good day!!

Frontera's are good off-road when the correct things are added on - Otherwise they are fairly useless!! :p
