Croft 18th march
« on: March 18, 2016, 09:13:35 PM »
I know everyone gets sick of the same old track videos so I've cut this down to a slick two minutes and my favourite chase of the day

https://youtu.be/pAV2a-yaTsg

It's a shame the quality looks like it's gone to shit after chopping the video??

Do excuse mine and Gaz commentary,  tend to get a bit excited on track

This was the car I was "happy" to be keeping up with

We fought well all day as they was nothing between the two cars except he had me breaking but I caught up very slightly down the main straight.

438bhp and all the driver aids as well. Fair play for staying with it.

Thanks mate,  as you can tell from my colourful commentary I was "pleased"  to be such a close battle with it all day.  He would stick to me until we swapped places then I was sticking to him and that continued all day.

Very little blowby this time filled my catch can about 1/3 full in the whole day. The car ran really well with water temps peak around 82-90 all day, ait around 10-15 and boost held steady at 1.2bar without the random fluctuations I sometimes get on hot days.

I've proper killed my brakes though,  they sound like someone rubbing steel across concrete. That's 3 trackdays and less than than 2k miles on £600 worth of new discs, pads fluid the lot. I am now going to look at different options as this is no good to me.

Just watching the video back on my cam this is probably my favourite as we had the lotus behind us for two laps. I let him pass on the paddock straight and then stuck with him for the rest of the lap even through traffic.
