Here is some onboard video footage of a Donington Park Track Day in wet October. Unfortunately the microphone didn't work so rather than watch in silence I put some music in! This was the worst weather I have seen on a track day, the day finished early as the weather was so bad. The Caterham was fun, it's on skinny Avon CR500 tyres with very little tread left on the front tyres so grip was pretty poor in the wet, and being such a short wheelbase and a lightweight car it was very lively as you can see! Also down the Craner Curves, Old Harpin and new Goddards chicane there was lots of standing water, leading to aquaplaning. I had two incidents at the new Goddards chicane with aquaplaning, one at 2:01 where I almost hit the tyre wall and one at 3:23 where I ran onto the kerb and hit the high start part of the kerb which shocks the camera. Also it was so hard to see where you are going as the windscreen gets rain on the inside of the screen as there is no roof and flimsy plastic doors, so you really can't see much. It was good fun and we just about stayed in one piece with a few near misses but it was a good experience and teaches you a lot about lines and grip levels in the wet.
