Very well run days with zero messing. If you're thinking about tracking your mr2 this is the crowd to do it with!

Paid for this last week, getting car ready now. Bucket seats bolted in, alternator out for check / replacement. Misfire to be sorted out yet, waiting for second hgand rally tyres and waiting for Carbons Lorraine pads to arrive. Gotta go on the highland run in the meantime.

Yeah you're right but there's a bit of a club mentality with them, they're a completely private day which are run extremely efficiently which always end up fully booked given their popularity.

Sooo... fitted a new clutch today, nothing like leaving things to the last minute lol.

We will be on the road from 5.30 tomorrow morning, trying to miss the Friday morning rush hour traffic on the M50. Hopefully see you all there about 9, really looking forward to it!

we had a great day at mondello in the mk2 na. certainly a steep learning curve , quite a technical circuit. good to see some turbos out on track too.

thought we were getting somewhere when top end of our engine got some sort of death rattle and power went off. some great runs in rays 22z roadster made up for it, thanks a lot ray. plans are being hatched.....

Great day even though we ended up with the car back on the trailer early. Good to meet you Spla, Murphy, Japohara, Ray, Colin and the lad with the white 2 tubby, sorry never got your name! Brief encounters but good ones all the same.

Have nothing but praise for Octane track days and Mondello circuit, both lived up to everyones reports and I am sure it wont be our last day there.

May be the last time in our car, another project is probably going to take the MK2`s place but we will stay with Toyota!

Looks like a lot of MR2s out there today! Going to a track day today wasn't possible but I'm definitely hoping to go to either Mondello or Kirkistown during the summer...
