Oulton Park Race Report

Returning home from Brands Hatch was nearly a disaster. Arriving home, late on, I had to reverse my caravan into its tightly allocated spot and the manoeuvring did not go well.

Having completed this and my Donington Park Track Day Report shortly after the race weekend, I was subjected to a burglary. Not much was taken, but I did lose my notebook computer that contained not only these reports, but also the latest version of the Max Navaero…
