thanks SmittyDaz... good thinking there
I started (re-started) my track experience by doing a highperformance driving day... with Frank Porter Cam McConville and John Harvey as our track instructors
You think you can drive around a circuit quickly but these guys quickly point out where you are getting it wrong
That was pretty cool. Did you shave your 3sec off?I attended a 'Sports Driver Training' day on Saturday at Morgan Park Raceway -it was a lot of fun and I learnt a lot.
I ended up with a deflating front left tyre early in the session, so had to swap one of the rears to the front and fit the spare to the l/h/r
Spare was just a povo Bridgestone 'Supercat' so it kind of limited how hard I could push on r/h turns (it's the squealing tyre in the other videos I have). Just goes to show how good those Toyos are, the difference was amazing. But still was able to have a fairly good go.
The footage below was a 'hillclimb' session. Fortunately I still had the Toyos on all 4 wheels in the session. Wasn't anything 'hill' about it, but a lot of fun. We had 2 shots at it, which was timed just for fun. Watching the video back now I realise my lines were far from perfect, but it took some time to learn the track and I'm just a wannabe race car driver lol
I'll post more video of the laps session when I'm done editing
