Nice bit of driving !  :great:

I think even Clive was admiring the lines for half a lap before he pressed harder on the loud pedal !

Hehe. Thanks mate. I wish I had his power!! Would be a different beast to drive though.

Thankyou!!! hoping to do more track days this year. I must admit I’m a bit in love with the RX-8 and how good it is to drive.

See the moment when I was in front of Clive - took a bit much kerb through the chicane, might have been a little bit of airtime for lefthand wheels. Hehe.

Definitely a few mistakes from me, over shooting under braking compromising me - not hitting apexes here and there. But I was happy with that being my first time there.

Videos are great to learn from.

A bit of T-cut and back out of the pits !!

What happened to when men were men? Crossed the line, jumped out the car, sparked up a cigarette and then punched their biggest rival lol.

That’s pretty much what I was doing when you were following me , many mistakes  under pressure .......
As Jon said , you peddle very well for your first time there . I’d be keen to know what other secrets your car has up it’s sleeves seen as I’ve been told off for spoiling a thread on RX8 OC lol

Hey Wayne,

Sorry - just saw this thread.

Hehe. Such great fun isn’t it. You know how to peddle also!!

So it is a 192 bridge from LC Rotary
Stock ECU - but a map from Lewis I think
Pilot sports (I think are amazing in wet and dry)
Racing brake discs (new front and rear for Combe), hawk pads
Updated radiator
HSD Coilovers (not sure of spring rate etc)
RB front and rear rollbars
Albins 5 speed (which as mentioned I had lined up for my FD) initially I wasn’t sure about the box / gearing as it does feel lazy sometimes compared to the 6 speed. But around Castle Combe (first time on track with that box) it felt really good.
Custom cages cage done by Craig at TGS
Sparco Seats / harnesses
Custom exhaust - high flow cat

I think that’s the main stuff?


Some more vids of my recent track days here (for interest)...
