The Mini park out front of the Thruxton racing circuit

It was my 52nd birthday and my wife took me there so I could race around their track in a Porsche and a racing car. It all stated with some tuition on how to drive around the track and that was done in the Porsche and after a while I was let loose and I was told I did very well gaining 87% on their assessment card.


Me driving around the Thruxton circuit and the instructor next to me.

Once the rush of the Porsche was gone it was to the faster more powerful (though less grander) racing car.


The racing car, such power and great fun.

The day was great, we did try and get permission to take the mini around the track but Health and Safety and other reasons prevented that from happening – but worth the ask!!
