  1. I was told that we had no area when I arrived and was pushed into the main arena car park area. I then saw the note on here from @Craiglm68 so headed over to the ruins, where we were last year. Bumped into a couple of people who'd arrived in a black Cayman R and got them to join us, but I guess everyone else was settled elsewhere by the time they realised we had an area. Good day regardless, but not quite up to last year's standard with all our cars together and fabulous weather.
  2. Okay now in the ruins area next to a black Cayman.
  3. Got put in the arena bit - was told there was no area for Cayman Owners Club 😞
  4. So is there definitely no club area today? just about to head off.
  5. As long as I don't end up having to driver through every car park to get there like last time, I'll be happy!
  6. Is there a Cayman Owners Club print out that we need to show stewards like last time? Or do we just ask to go to the club area? Do we have the same place as last time? I really liked that spot.
  7. Added names to the list according to affirmative posts
  8. I'm up for coming along again; this year was great - excellent turn out, and wonderful weather; let's hope for the same next year 🙂
  9. It makes a noticeable difference wherever you're driving. It essentially eradicates that horrible mushy travel at the top of the pedal, giving the brakes a far more direct feel. The improvement on track is probably the most noticeable, though. since you're braking that much harder - it makes it easier to roll your foot to heel and toe, too. It's one of those things that should have been done at the factory - although if you're running PCCBs they come with a larger - though still smaller than the GT3 version - master cylinder anyway.
  10. I specced mine with no AC and hasn't bothered me one bit, even on track this summer - for me the R was all about being a lightweight and focused driver's car; no sat-nav or Bose in mine, either ? Given that this year has probably seen more hot days than the last ten years combined, I just can't see a point where I'm likely to miss it. I think I turned the AC on in my 911 a hand full of times in the three years I had it. Each to their own, of course ?
  11. Pretty sure the SW circuit is longer than 1.8miles - it's the same configuration as the GT circuit bar a couple of extra hairpins and short straights, and I think the GT is 3.8miles IIRC. But if it is the SW, that's a decent setup - it's what evo uses for its track evenings. As you say, Bedford is a great shout for anyone doing a first track day, too - loads of run off, and only a couple of places where it can go horribly wrong. That said, I wouldn't have thought the fast right hander onto the pit straight would be one of those places and I saw someone roll an M3 there ? Thought that might be half-term - not sure what we're doing yet, so will have to check with my better half first ?
  12. There have been lots of GT4s and GT3s at various Bedford track days I've been on, and none of them had an issue with noise - you can always turn the sports exhaust off if you think you're going to be close. Obviously that doesn't help anyone with a Carnwal, though ? The October date could be good, just need to make sure I'm free as I think that might be half-term week. BTW - which circuit configuration are we talking about for this? I assume it's not the full GT, is it the SW? Sorry if that's already been confirmed, may have missed it.
  13. I've always insured my Porsches through Porsche Insurance, although that doesn't officially exist anymore - it's just Aviva through Marsh brokers now. Reason was that they guaranteed genuine Porsche parts for any repairs, threw in a couple of track days a year for free and were generally as competitive as anyone else. Not sure if point one is still true, so may look around next year. I hear good things about Competition Car Insurance, in terms of bundled track day cover, but I guess that's only a consideration if you track your car.
  14. You and me both; I love bunnies ?? The Sport Design wheel is a huge improvement on the standard wheel I had on my 997 C2S, especially with the Alcantara finish - well worth the upgrade. Yep, Bedford is long, but the GT configuration is the best - there are a couple of extra hairpins that are really good fun; although I've driven in far worse conditions on the full GT ?
