Intresting....your lines are very similar to mine. Main differences are you stay much tighter as you take the LH back onto the main straight (the most difficult corner on the new layout I think :?: ) and on your second lap you appear to stay tighter and right as you blast down the straight to the finish.

I just love the second cut-through back towards the mole-hill 8)

As Nick said very consistent times Steve; top work :!:

Cheers Craig, pity about the 2nd one :lol:

I've added a couple more from the afternoon session to the post above.

Edit as this post makes no sense now we're on a new page :-

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:

No, not available for iPhone apparently :roll: I have one that I had to pay for, which would be OK if I was racing at Monaco, Spa, Nurburgring or Silverstone. For some reason it has none of the tracks we race at, but can learn them. After a lot fiddling I decided that I really CBA.... :lol:

Evening chaps -

Here's some of the better pics I took - not brilliant by any means, as the camera won't zoom in far enough :(

Anyway... on with the pics -

I also took a few videos - but they're all out of focus, with the exception of one of Lukes runs :( I'll try and put that on Youtube if you like Luke.

Cheers,

Mike.

Here you go chaps - see how this works. It's not brilliant filming skills by any stretch of the imagination, but it sounds ok ;)









Sorry Steve (Cork) - I don't appear to have caught you... must've been too quick ;)

Mike.

*edit - sorry, I can't see how you embed the video - can a mod do the necessary magic - cheers!

Sorted :-)

I've uploaded a few vids in the compie photobucket account. Feel free to do what you want with them. I've got more but struggling to upload them as they are larger files as I was recording longer.
