Due to Oulton Park being the local track for most members of the MCR-VTEC forum it was decided to hold a mini-meet in the track paddock on the day of the VTEC Challenge round. The turnout wasn’t massive due to the relatively high ticket price to get into the track for the day but nevertheless there were some sweet cars on display.

This stock looking EK9 definitely surprised a few people when the bonnet was opened…boost is always a good attention grabber!

The size of the paddock and parking areas meant that some the cars were quite dispersed – I found these two DC2s parked up some distance away from the rest of the meet.

The good thing about having so many Honda nerds in the paddock meant that if one of the race cars went wrong, everyone chipped in to help. That is, if they weren’t preoccupied with staring at cars like this super clean FD2 Civic (a rarity in the UK)! Thankfully, my good mates Andy and Mo managed to divert their attention when Stewart Hutchinson split a CV boot while out on the track. Fifteen minutes later and it was as good as new!

Yellow EK9s are equally as rare in the UK (even more so than the yellow Jordan limited edition models) so it was nice to see one in the flesh.

This aesthetically stock DC5 looked absolutely stunning – proof if proof were needed that with Hondas OEM bodywork is almost always best.

Moving away from the MCR-VTEC meet, here’s a picture I forgot to include with my previous post – the VTEC Challenge entrants lining up ready to go out on track.

These M3s are used as part of the track day experiences that Oulton Park sells, I can safely say I’ve never seen so many in one place before!

And to finish, I’ll leave you with something distinctly non-Honda…when was the last time you saw a Hayabusa bike engine in the back of a Citroen Saxo!?

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

Maybe sometime soon it will be a better charting package, but for now it’s an amazing way to trade CFDs on-line. The platforms greatest strengths are it’s web based interface and execution speed. If these features sound compelling, maybe it’s your best choice for CFD trading.
