Merlot goes "Mad Max" in Shakespeare County !

Saturday 28 February saw Team Merlot head off for a driving experience day with Mazda on Track at the Shakespeare County Raceway, otherwise known as Long Martson Airfield (a location in many respects doing a very passable impression of a set from a Mad Max Movie.!)

Two different sprint courses had been set up the runway tarmac with cars, mostly MX-5s, going off for a lap, one at a time. A different format to the usual track day we know and love but certainly one of the most entertaining driving days I have ever experienced.

And I thought Robbie had given up smoking.?
