half a day or 1.5, 2.5 hours less than other tracks?

Others finish at 3.30 or 4.30, this finishes at 1. (2.5 - 3.5 hour difference)

Other tracks have a lunch break during the day, we eat lunch afterwards. (that makes it 1.5 - 2.5 hour difference)

It's 6 to 1 or half-a-dozen to the other.

You complain about having to pay for your own fuel in your own car, so you aren't exactly the best character to judge value. :P

Most serious post ive seen you make in a while! Reality is, people will feel buggered anyway. Not to mention that an afternoon session would be more prone to accidents as we will feel a little slow and sleepy after eating.

I was there a month ago, they were doing some resurfacing on other part of the track. I've only driven the shorter version of Eastern Creek in a 325i and M3, it's great fun.

Ah, did not realise you were organising for the half track. I'm still keen, but would really hope to drive the full track...

SBC set some very impressive times last track day in his 320i

I'm seeing Pete on Thursday to do my meth

I've never tracked before, so if we have a little less people in Group 1, I will sneak over to group 1 :P
