#MyEvoYear 2013

As a recent Evo subscriber, thanks Peach, I’m addicted. Their #MYEVOYEAR twitter tagging got me thinking. 2013 really was a great year as a petrol head….

May: Phil Price Rally School

Phil Price Rally School RWD Impreza, skids
Neilo nailing a slide. I’d post a pic of me but all the pics he took are a tiny bit blurred 😦

A great start. More fun that you can shake a stick at. Phil, the Welsh mud and his instructors made for a great day out. The pax lap with Phil in an ex WRC car was worth the money alone.

June: DN8

Rent4Ring Suzuki Swift
CU – DN8 Day 1 😀

2 day trackday at the Nurburgring… First ever lap under instruction: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7M_nYOm2Q9Y

July: Stelvio Pass

Stelvio Pass
Stelvio, every bit as good as it looks.

SC wants to go to Italy but doesn’t want to fly……….. Driving in the 1 series it is then :D. Muchos need to go back.

August: Donington + MX5 Purchase

Mk1 Mazda MX5
Track focused RS-LTD – My Fourth MX5 😀

1st time at Donington and after an utterly shit 2012 for cars this marks a great turning point, and a return to the MX5 fold.

September: VLN7 2013 + Sunday TF laps at the ‘Ring

VLN 7 Start
VLN7 – First live racing I’ve seen at the ‘Ring

Cheeky second trip to the ‘Ring. My favourite lap to date in CU: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCOoQupZZE4  (damp / drying out)

October: Spa with Circuitdays

VW T4 Caravelle and MX5 Tracktoy
2nd to last journey in the T4 Caravelle.

1200 miles of towing in the Caravelle and a great meet up with the ‘Bores.

Bus stop skids: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgtwGJ7Qiks

Favourite lap: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbvAZGJakEI

First time I’ve preferred a wet track over dry conditions.

November: Silverstone with Circuit Days

MX5 at Silverstone

Final trackday of the year, first trackday in the new 5 with my Dad and final journey in the Caravelle. Sadly sold the Caravelle a few days later. Great to catch up with friends again.

Already trying to keep the momentum with a set of plans for 2014…..
