getting the hang of the racing driver excuses already Luke, very professional :lol:

in all seriousness the times, and lines from all drivers were of the best ive seen at a test day, some years its been difficult to know where to stand to avoid getting run over!! :shock: :lol:

glad you enjoyed the day, and gives you plenty of time to convert or build one of your GTE fleet into a racer for the 2016 season :wink: ideal candidate for 2016 Academy...

If you're talking about August Curbs, I don't think I'd agree with that Jim. Well not for the tyres I was using. Despite spots of rain, the track felt grippier last August. And I thought that some of the new Tarmac was a bit slippy on Weds.

At all the events the first / main thing the scrutes checked is

1) safety : Seats / belts / steering / helmet / suit / gloves and bizarrely numbers on a white background

2) Then secondly engine bay for safety / interior for road going compliance (door cards, headlining, carpets) and

3) Noise !!!

Here are my 1st and 2nd double lappers from the morning session on soft tyres. Unfortunately I didn't have the camera running for the 66.06 :roll:

1st vid is a 66.7, which I was quite chuffed with for a first double run.



2nd Vid is an 81.34 :lol: :oops:



From the afternoon session:-

I ran mediums in the afternoon which supplied lift-off oversteer by the bucket full :lol:



Trying a bit too hard..... :oops:
