Punt Tomorrow

14 posts in this topic

Got an appointment tomorrow in MK. First time out of London, first time organised so far ahead, first time staying away from home rather than returning later (to empty house), first time with this lady. So, got to get sorted with packing - kit for trackday on Friday is a doddle (jeans, trainers, fireproof top etc) but also need to have nice shirt and decent shoes and trousers for appointment. But, OH is working at home and have to smuggle out decent stuff while appearing cool and nonchalant throughout (why, exactly, do I need a nice shirt for a trackday?). Coupled with general apprehension (rights/wrongs - will it/won't it be good - will I find the bloody place and return to hotel successfully)I am a total bundle of nerves and have been for some days.

Christ, the things us men go through to see you ladies - you wouldn't believe it :rolleyes:

If you are staying overnight, just say that you are going out for a meal with some of the others at the trackday. That way you can just pack the stuff rather than acting suspicious as you try and smuggle items out of the house.

What WaytoTall suggests :)

BTW, I do a few trackdays as well. Totally off topic but what are you running? Got Donno booked in a few months, never considered a punt before but it could be an easy excuse to use for cover ;)

Thats exactly what I have said but, honestly, blokes who do trackdays rarely dress for dinner, trust me. But I will need a spare shirt as the chances of getting wet are very high - see below.

Motor cars are full of petrol which, when ignited, burns like a very burny thing. Although you don't expect it to happen, if I am going to be sitting in a car which is on fire, I would prefer to do it with a layer of protection against the flames over my head and top half. (Nomex is not nice any lower........)

GT3Mk1 but doing a Caterham day at Silverstone (and staying at Brackley Hatch). Hence the need, if it rains, for extra clothing as there is no weather protection at all except your speed :D

As an excuse for being away, it is nigh on perfect apart from the additional togs issue.

It is nice that you are going to so much trouble but do you really need to stress yourself out in such a way. Escorts do not have a dress code and jeans and a t-shirt or whatever you plan to wear for your normal day are more than acceptable. How will you enjoy the appointment if you are worrying that you have left clues before you even get out of the house. Even if you turned up in full racing gear a simple explanation would be enough for any escort.

Actually calming down now as work is done and OH has gone to work so pressure is off a bit. True enough about dress code but it will be decent jeans and a decent shirt as I would do that anyway if going it - it just makes me feel better. However, I think turning up in a very noisy and bright orange car and then emerging in full overalls with sponsors decals all over them might, just might, raise an eyebrow amongst the neighbours..........

As a postscript to this thread I would advise never to punt in MK without a bloody satnav. Got the directions from streetmap and took them with me only to find that all was not quite what it seemed and once one turning was missed the whole thing descended into chaos. I had to be rescued from CostCo's car park and followed my appointment to her place. Jeez, it is like a rabbit warren without a roof and half the streets have no obvious signs and are very GT3 unfriendly indeed. Rather spoiled the evening I'm afraid although getting back to Brackley Hatch was a total doddle once I was lead to the motorway.

You should have just kept turning left & you would have ended up back where you started from ;)

MK is fine if you live there like I do bt it does take a little getting used to. As long as you know what V & H grid road your destination is easy to get to.

Was the Caterham day worth doing btw?

Brilliant but freezing cold while waiting but hot in the car. Can now drift a Caterham so have learned a useful skill which I will not be appliying to the 911.

BTW if anyone ever thinks of using the Premier Inn at Brackley Hatch for an outcall venue, be warned. The reception area is about the size of an average kitchen and no one will escape scrutiny by the receptionist - it is simply impossible. Worth it for the breakfast though.
