    The trip went really well, was slightly nervous as the car hadn't been out of the garage for a year, other than for an MOT (poor I know). Therefore a 1000 mile round trip including the ring was a good result.

    I should of got the garage to set it up etc before we went but it just didn't work out that way, the car did develop a issue which meant it didnt feel quite right on the steep uphill section at the ring, nothing serious but not quite right.

    Cant wait to do it again now!

    To be honest I cant remember as i lowered it years ago, was lower than I intended but could never bring myself to change it. However I have been thinking I should raise 1/2 an inch to make it more practical.
