I am taking part in a track day being organised by the guys at RPM Porsche, where a group of Porsches (and other cars) will have a full day of driving this fabulous circuit, including of course the very famous Eau Rouge corner - flat out if you are brave enough!

I drove this circuit in a Caterham 7 and Lotus 2-Eleven a few years ago and loved it. Its a fast, sweeping circuit with plenty of changing gradients and high-speed corners. The only downside was that both cars lacked top-speed on the long straights. The 968 shouldn't have the same problem.

So I will be making the road trip, along with my Dad, in the Range Rover with the 968 on the trailer. Plan is to leave the UK on Sunday 16th, a full day of driving on the 17th and then return on the 18th June.
So while we wait for that date to arrive, I've been marveling at how fast the Jenson Button can drive around in his F1 car.
I'll let you know how we get on.
