Where the hell do you start ?????
Early start, several hours preparing the night before (Getting the car trailered up n stuff) and then a 5:00am start setting off for 6:00am.
Driving in complete darkness with the car all iced up from the frosty night. Got there just after dawn to a very very brisk morning. Unloaded the car and signed on for the track managing to get Dazza a free second driver and Webby as a free passenger, sorted.
Safety briefing and then onto doing 3 laps behind the safety car at moderate speeds to learn the track, well that was the idea anyways but i had a different idea. This was a great oppertunity to practice drifting those corners.
Returned to the pits to get prepped for the real thing. Off we Go.... Wow, Wow, Wow accelerating down the first straight and the arse end stepping out left right and centre, coming into the first corner at approx 80mph and went for the brakes, O SHIT.... The brakes and tyres were cold and didnt work. Just managed to get around the first corner by going outside the cones slightly and then set about backing off a little and warming the tyres and brakes.
Once this was done it was down to business, This was so so so much fun you simply carnt put it into words, As Dazza said, going around a long long sweeping 90 degree bend and the car stepping out at speeds of 80mph and boy o boy does your arse start twitching. Coming out of this bend you accellerate down the long back straight upto 120mph and you have 2 bends to handle whilst doing 120mph, its real difficult i tell you. Then onto a series of very tight chikanes, drifting this way, then drifting that way, and then drifting the other way and then flat out around a long right hander into another 2 90 degree bends past the pit lane.Its an experiance i wont forget for a long time.
The Slarlom Course (Or should i say my very own drift track and Burnout Zone) PMSL....
Loving the burnout, got a Bollicking from the Marshall's after the above performance, lol.
Time for a tyre change i think after that, These tyres were new at the begining of the day.
