You must never have gone to France. I came back to England once on the Chunnel (cost 109 one way) and it took me over 45 minutes to get through the friggin' French border crossing; BY MYSELF! No other vehicles! Those f***in' frogs are rude as the day is long. Belgian frontier ain't close enough to Coquelles for me.

I did, however, spend an hour chatting with the sweet British girl at the UK frontier.

I think the ring is one place where you should not go out to be quicker than people. Thats when accidents will happen.

There is no run-off and you WILL be in a hefty shunt if you try to hard Unlike many, more proffessionally run and marshalled UK track days.


Guys lets be safe.

A judicious use of the throttle will save you plenty of embarrassment.

I was seriously considering the new RS but some are saying that the torque steer problem still exists. 332 bhp is great on paper but pretty pointless if you cant transmit it to the black stuff. Besides, overweight or not, i know what i would rather be sat in driving to the Ring and around it and it aint no plastic Ford!! I dont know the guy with the RS and im sure he's a great chap if he's a mate of Andrews but having been to the Ring 3 times on my GSXR 1000 K5, K6 and K7 and also in my cars i strongly hope he leaves his ego in the car park otherwise he could be in trouble on the Ring!!! Oh, and if he's faster than the DXB and Big Tone then im selling the M3 as soon as we get home!!!!

Car has plenty of grip mate (providing its dry) Any high powered front wheel drive hatch will torque steer a little regardless of set up, odd thing is it is a lot better behaved modded than standard due to the way it comes on boost and delivers its power .

As for the ego bit was only trying to have a bit of banter but looks like that was left of the options list for most on here when they ordered their cars At the end of the day the ring is a dangerous place and I have no intension of driving like a fool when I get back there

Mate, dont get me wrong i wasnt having a dig, we all love the banter on here and i dont know anyone on here with an ego problem or at least not one that they cant back up on the track or road!!! Personally ive never noticed your posts on here before so dont know you - so when i read your quote above it just made me laugh - mainly cos you will most certainly be left with a lot of egg on your face as there are some really tasty BMW's on here!!!! Good luck with your scalp hunting anyway though buddy - looking forward to seeing your RS in my rear view mirror sometime soon!!!

Now now boys, this thread isn't going to turn into a "my dick is bigger than yours" type thread... only 'cos we know who's going to win that contest anyway

Will be great having some different cars - look forward to seeing the RS. I thought it was a great car when it came out, even in stock form, so am sure it's going to be a straight-line monster modded... And the 'Ring, as people have said, is not the place to start flexing muscles - it'll be good fun for all, regardless of choice of car or propulsion...!

Hear, hear, well said Tony Sir!! I wonder if he'll be wearing a Burberry cap or a helmet on the Ring!!!? Just kidding, just kidding - all are more than welcome, regardless of whether they are an overweight BMW or not!!

The post was aimed to see what cars are actually coming but said tongue in cheek. Ive got no real intention of going scalp hunting, the ring isnt the place to start being billy big balls

So what will be in convoy to the ring?
