To be honest.. the public cars spoiled the majority of my runs which was annoying. Felt like need for speed underground in the GTR weaving through the cars at full pelt!!!!

Does anyone know what the final amount raised was?.... For a couple of hours the amount raised is usually great.. When I left it was up at 6k

I had zero expectations like most days but Sunday on that stretch of road just seemed to bring out the worst in people. There was not just crap inconsiderate driving but monumental crap driving!

I think you're having too much faith in the public here, people are idiots. You shouldn't set your expectations so high of them, then you won't be as disappointed when they do something stupid.

It's a great event, the concept is fantastic, but the situation is less than ideal. I have driven every year except one and watched as it has grown in popularity. A closed environment would be brilliant, we could do allot more with the fantastic line up of cars and space to use them, the Maze was discussed before and I hope will be looked at again, I could have a ball within those gates. At present you can only drive to the condition of the road and the other road users, some people get carried away and get spoken too accordingly. This year was brilliant, we raised allot of money for a good cause and had zero incidents, however the Sunday traffic is difficult and I can see every point raised on this thread.

Were you in your own black one or Si's?

Looks to be a lot of fun sir!

@Big Ian - I do indeed, but they're just poor quality phone ones. Got some of most of the cars there including yours @Derekm

I'll have a nosey through them & post them when I get a chance if I've any goodens. My mate had a better camera on his phone though, if I get the hold of him I'll see if he can send me his vids instead.

Sorry I can only upload the short vids & I have very little, computer is playing up and I can't get the long ones to upload which are a mix of all the cars. (I just paused and recorded for ages) :p

@Big Ian

@Derekm

I know they're terrible & poor sound quality. I'll see if I can get better ones from my mate.
