Mitsubishi GTO Archetypal 1990's Japanese Supercar

Mitsubishi meet at Ace Cafe North London....

So I went to the Petrolhead Nirvana monthly meet couple of weeks ago but delayed at work so got there very late and missed most of the action.

Did get to meet some nice people though, as at all these car events, and swapped history and war stories with several like-minded people

I'll be back - and earlier next month!!! And I'll see you guys for the Wales and Alpine South roadtrips next year - can't wait!!!

Also noticed that they had a Mitsubishi Meet advertised for this month, so figured I would go take a look, unfortunately there were only three Mitsus there including me (all Red!), but very nice friendly folks and it was good fun chatting with you....

Car on the left is a USA spec LHD Eclipse with lots of goodies and more in process. On the left is a UK spec 3000GT that was super clean, and mine's in the middle.

I guess it was too cold and miserable for the rest of you, or you just didn't know. I'll make sure to post the next one up on GTOOC and GTOUK so everyone knows. No excuses next time.

Trackday Racing at SPA F1 track...

We just got back from SPA F1 Race track in Francorchamps, Belgium, after a long weekend.

What can I say.... Absolutely astonishingly beautiful surroundings, gorgeous Autumn weather, four 25-minute sessions on Sunday spent pretending to be an F1 driver, what an awesome experience.....

For some Drivers POV Videos in the Photos tab. You can watch me do a 180 on the wet track on cold tyres, and then some good laps on hot tyres until they start to fade and slide in the last session-this is one heavy car....

Bear in mind this wasn't foot to the floor top speed action as there were too many insane overtakers on both sides, most of whom ended up in the Armco at some point (lots of Yellow flags and stoppage time) and we wanted to get home in the same car the next day, so I was taking it easy.

Not that that was disappointing as the track is so challenging and beautiful in the way it drives that I was seriously buzzed after each run.

Let me know if you have any photos of my car on track as that's what I'm missing....
