Another clip from 2nd HD camera mounted on front bumper. I\'ve stopped the video just before the incident at Tower corner....

Sorry Aston, cameras weren\'t "on" during that session (forgot due to the rush to get everything done on time to get on track!)

Thx Keith :) - no real idea what top speed as my eyes were firmly focussed on the road ahead :o, with occasional glance down to check on gauges/lights. Having said that, before braking for Quarry I saw a speed of over 120, but I\'m running tyres which means that speed is flattering! With the 8, it is all about speed through the corners rather than end of straight speed as the 8 doesn\'t have the hp to really exploit long straights.

Very pleased with my videos showing some laptimes of 1m27 (with passenger on board) and loads of 1m28\'s with a clear track.
