This is the only time I went out that got red flagged,

Wish it had dried out.
Looks like I must have caught every single track closure. Guilty parties shall remain nameless!

Thanks for the tip off about MSV @ Bedford Autodrome.
I just checked their website and they do an open pit lane day for 99. It sounds perfect for me until I get some more experience.
I really like Bedford as it's one of those tracks where most kerbs are painted, it's flat with loads of run off area, so you can really get to know your car. Dry, wet or damp it's pretty good fun and one of the safest tracks to learn how your car behaves on the limit. It can be a little hard on the brakes if you push it, but all part of the fun.

+1 on that. I would recommend that you try to book the instructor time so you have a couple of hours on track before you have the tuition. This way you get to learn the track before hand and I find I'm able to pickup more from the instructors.
