1st track day in GT spec.B

Postby Graphite » Thu Sep 04, 2014 12:14 pm

I had my first ever track day last Sunday :D

A local Subaru and Alfa Romeo dealer organised it at quite a small track not too far away... I had my lad and 2 of his mates in the car. They seemed to enjoy themselves anyway :lol:

Taking it very easy on the first couple of laps - the black STi that overtakes me early on was a buddy with a well sorted track focused motor... He gave me lots of encouragement and advice prior to the event 8)



At the end of that video it wasn't us crashing :lol: the phone mount had got bored and detatched itself from the windscreen. My lad then held the phone to continue the video - he said it was a tough abdominal workout trying to keep the phone pointing out the front :wink:



Got black flagged for holding the mobile when the marshalls eventually noticed - DOH!

Hey I'm no racer buddah - was my first time out for a fun day with 3 kids in the car... Top speed was about 90 mph - only a small track mostly used for karting :lol: The local Subaru/Alfa Romeo dealer organised and was good fun for non-racers :D

If you are a fast guy on the track post up some vids - would love to see some... 8)
