    How many 888's at Oulton Park..?

    A big fat


    .......zero

    You would have expected that people owning 888's like myself, would have been big fans of the Touring Car series.

    I went up with me dad in his red Zafira (as he has a bad back and can't sit in the Sparco's).

    There was not many Astra Coupe's, considering it has whooped the other cars this year in most races.

    Am I really that lucky to have a 888, does that account for me not seeing one ?

    It was the same at Donny Park, no 888's again (other than the race cars!).

    I did see a couple of Coupe's at Outlon Park as well as a few GSI's.

    Was a hell of a lot of Scooby's there, well you tread on them every day don't you!

    Maybe next year, we could organise a car meet at one of the Touring Car races (now there's an idea!).

    Regds,

    PS. Racing was fantastic, the 888 astra were as always the best looking car on the track.

    As a turbo driver, I can tell you exactly where all the 888 owners were (you should know this anyway)

    They were probably hooning around the british roads having too much fun to park up at Oulton Park to watch someone else having fun in a 888

    Steve,

    You should have been there.

    There was a big congregation of the MG X-Power community, with there fancy Rover's with bodykits (which seem to make them MG's...?).

    I even bought a VX Racing/Muller hat to show my favouritism.

    Maybe next year at Donny Park we can have a meeting.

    Bye the way, anyone with a decent car close to derby is welcome this sunday to a meeting. Check out :- www.davewilkinsgtr.co.uk.

    The meeting is in aid of Cancer Research and will be attended by the local press.

    Regds,

    When I went to the German Touring cars at Donni earlier this year there were 3 of them.

    Well I could'nt find any at Oulton.

    Found three Focus RS's without even looking.

    And like I said, you could'nt tread without almost stepping on a Subaru Imprezza.

    That and them Rovers with spoilers.

    Regds,
