Looks like you were having fun in the evo 8

Was that a track experience day in the U.K. ?

Certainly was, at Stafford, an ex airfield. Was good but I prefer these days when it's wet, far more exciting when it's slidy, slidy... Even if the speed is a bit down. I'm a Roger Clarke fan and as his first autobiography was titled "Sideways to victory" is my love of car driving, give me a Mk2 rear wheel drive Escort in the wet, mud, snow... Heaven.

I've spent many many hours in the "wet, mud, snow" when I used to follow the round Britain RAC rally. Never missed a year in places like the forests of Kielder, Hamsterley, Grizedale, etc. Saw some great cars and drivers in everything from dust to mud and serious snow/ice.

Shame the round Britain format ended.

I've been there and rwd is good fun,but i do love the immense grip that evo's have to offer,hence why I'm now on my 4th and the mrs is after one,the speeds my X can carry through a corner is bonkers,to the point you wouldn't think it's possible without crashing.

I'm thinking of driving over to the algarve in it some time,but I dread to think the fuel cost

Touché both of you. I travelled the country following the RAC, the Welsh, the Scottish... I have so many pics, stories.. As all the drivers were so approachable. Happy days.
Yes, love the grip, I do appreciate that but as an average driver, I must be, to be in control of something sliding says to me it's me, I'm in control, when admiring somethings grip, it's the machine, still great fun but I prefer slip slidy.
I have a pic of me in a 911, all the girly buttons turned to off in driving rain and at just 60/70mph it was so much fun, real driving, love it!
