Default I'm a virgin..

Reporting for duty,
Hello all,
Firstly, what a cool site Sat down with her indoors the other night and have made plans to source a Mini, pretty sure it will be a new or newish JCWs I have been looking through the galleries and am soooo impressed with the quality of cars on here so congrats to you all
I currently have a Vauxhall Astravan Sportive SE with lots of modifications that have gone on over 36 months from brand new. I am a regular Track Day goer and pop over to the Ring and Spa regularly!
I'm hoping to build something similar Mini wise and have already been inspired by a few on here esp "Duck"
Watch this space
Cheers all,
Andy

I remember seeing your van a few times out at the ring! Man I miss europe!

You got some big stones driving in that downpour, how slick was the track with all that water?
