Default Wet Spa Francorchamps in my chinacharger 1.6



I've finally got my oil cooler mounted, and the Super Wario holes in the bumper have helped massively too. Car is running great... apart from the slowly cracking manifold again... grr...

You europeans are ********, with your amazing tracks and all...

Granted, I have some pretty cool tracks near me (Mid-Ohio, VIR, Watkins Glen) but still, I would kill to drive Spa...

Yep, I wouldn't trade all the track in the USA for my two local circuits... Nürburgring GP, Nürburgring Nordschleife and Spa!

Awesome video. Car looks/sounds great and you were really hustling it around the track. Definitely some track envy here. Do you talk the entire time you drive or only when the camera is on?

Nice to see you on Spa! I was there in May and ran a 2:52 in the dry.

Have you done any dry laps there?

I like a camera position where you can see the driver/steering wheel better

Hi Spooky,

Nope, no times - it was wet or just slimy all day. If I was going to do times I'd probably need to fit some tyres that actually worked too! Still on my 2006 R888s, the tread pattern is more of a shadow than a measurable depth and I've literally no idea how many heat cycles are in the tyres, but we're probably into the hundreds. Makes every day a great effort in car control though - I drive my MX5 for fun and giggles mostly. Have promised myself a set of Federal FZ201s for next season...
