Havent updated in a while..
So yesterday was another track day. Got up early and left around 5.15am and drove an hour to the Queensland Raceway. Decided to stop for breaky at maccas 5 minutes down the road. Ate my food and went to the toilet, when i came out i saw two cops at the counted both death staring me
. So i walked out side and pretended to be on the phone hoping they would leave.. they did not. So i decided to just walk out to my car and whatever happens happens..
As soon as i unlocked it they walked over stating how low the car is and that it shouldnt be on the road etc. Fortunately they were really cool cops. Both in to cars and both use to race rally cars. Just my luck hey
. After a few compliments about how clean the car was he issued me with a $110 fine for the car being under 100mm.
Fortunate because they told me everything they could get me for but decided not to ruin my day and told me to enjoy the trackday and to get a car trailer
. So off i went. Got to the track and setup before driver briefing. 1st session like always was slippery but the car felt good. Was running perfectly. 2nd session out on Clubman saw a new pb with a 101.7. Had a moment coming out of the fast left hander going onto the back straight when i went off and the car started to slip out.. So much **** clenching
Heres an incar vid.
As the day got hotter a switch up to the Sprint track was done. After two sessions i was running consistant 58.7 matching my pb's but still wasnt faster. Final session was 3 hot laps and finally got a 58.5. Not much of a pb but its enough for me
. After that was passenger laps which was good fun. still running 59.00 with the extra weight
Heres an incar vid on sprint.
Tires were shagged by the end of the day with struggling for grip exiting turn 6 and the first dipper. Im confident with a new set of either RS-3s or stepping up to NT01's will see me in the low 57's - high 56's with more practice.
All in all was an awesome day. In 32*c weather the car ran flawless and water and oil temps never got over 100*c.
Heres a couple of pics
