I've interviewed someone who had cable tied the tow strap (which they called a toe strap) to the front of their car. Just to make sure it's COMPLETELY useless. ::)

Combe is a fantastic circuit in a Polo. Take it easy @ Quarry corner until you get some heat in the tyres  ;)

Ok so I had three sessions at coomb and what can I say it was amazing fun the car coped fine no problems at all can't wait to do it again. I will make some minor suspension tweaks for next time and I will try and get some negative camber swell and a bit more castor.

One thing I would say is next time I will re torque my wheel bolts after each session as I pulled of from the last session I noticed a knocking noise later found out it was all front wheel bolts had come completely undone :S

My driving needs some work but I wasn't expending to be  amazing from the get go. There was a couple of dodgy over takes by others  mainly by people driving mk2 golf championship on corners which put me off. All in all excellent day defiantly better than a day at the pod in my opinion!

Wicked pictures, looks a lot of fun too!.. your door handles look quite smart, they off an audi?

how did the polo stack up against the other sort of cars there? or did you just cruise around at your own pace?
