Is there a Skyline forum for Brits?

Hello,

Just found out Im getting stationed in England next yr and was wondering if there is a Skyline forum for Brits since they don't have a section on here?

There are subsections for other Countries ie US because the majority of us are from the UK so use the main forum.

As above buddy, most of the users on this site are "Brits" (as you'd call us) lol.
Quite a big scene in uk, there's an area rep for the counties (sometimes more than 1) and loads of stuff going on, from weekly meets to track days and shows.
Hope that helps..

It does I'll snoop around more.

I was in Mildenhall near Cambridge before and Im going back. The wife is British as well...and our kids are half-breeds so it will be good to get back near the in-laws.

I have done Santa-pod a lot the last time but I've moved away from drag racing so Im hoping to do more of the road courses this time out.

--Also so dont be offended by Brits... I used to be called a Yank all the time, as if it was an insult by my British friends but then they realized we take it as a compliment

Brit is just an abbreviation for British, I don't think it's offensive at all.

Although besides my lovely British Rose...

England has made 3 other amazing things that I will never dispute.

The Spitfire (although the p-51 is just as amazing)
Top Gear (Greatest show ever... period)
The original Mini ( one of the most fun cars I ever owned)

Based on the above, I assume you are from the northern states. Not sure the guys down south like to be called a Yank, they are still rebels ;)

Yes Im from the north.

As for what language that could be debated... is it really English anymore?

Shoot if you look at "English" now compared to 80 yrs ago it is completely different.

Besides you all have had longer to **** it up than we have, who knows we could be fixing or eliminating your mistakes? ;)
