I went back to Brands on Friday for a full day on the Indy circuit. Limited to 20 minute sessions, but it was the best track day I've done so far. There was another CRX there (the yellow one) which had been racing in this years TinTops series (which is what I'll be entering into next year), driven by Neil and Chris. We spent a lot of the day sharing ideas and setup info, then for 2 sessions in the afternoon we had our own private 'race' out on track.
We stuck to the rules, but basically we were pushing as hard as possible. It was amazing. People watching said it was like a mini CRX Challenge race! The best thing for me is that my self built, self tuned hodge-podge concoction of best guesses (not to mention the in-experienced pilot), is able to match the pace of a developed and proven race winning car
We were (unofficially of course) doing lap times which would have put us well up the grid in a 2006 TinTops race, so we should both be highly competitive next year. Anyway, enough babble... here's some pics and video!
10 lap video
Should hopefully have some high-res pics soon.
Great way to round out 2006 which has been such an amazing year for me.
Thanks for looking
