No Sandown for me, I don't like the track at all and I haven't raced for a long time. Might come for a look though if your racing?

 

Kinda on topic, I noticed in the MSCA calendar there's only one event at Phillip Island later this year? Usually it's 2-3 isn't it? They've put a motor khana in there  ::) lol!

Although a bit busy to get to Sandown. Looking at some of those other events I might have to break out te camera and go for a look see.

 

Are you planning to enter many events this year?

Was a great day.

Started off very wet! But dried off and had some great runs.

I was put in the same group as the only other Z entrant, Richard. We had some great battles, but they called our group to join an earlier group. And dad was still on the track, as we shared the car. So I missed the final run and Rich smashed his old time by 1.2 seconds and ended up beating me by 0.6 in the end.

Man the cars fast down the straights. Can't tell you the speed as JDM speedo only goes to 180. But I was catching a Lotus Elise or Exige and a 370Z. Corner speed and brakes clearly need attention now.

We only did 4 runs in the end, but that's 8 for the poor old Z's. Then we had to drive it home!

PMC strong!!!!!!

 

I'm hoping to do a few more this year.

I had better times than this, but video didn’t seem to work on those……..

Tyres not giving me the best grip, which dramatically affected, braking, corner speed and race line.

But……

I caught up to cars on the straight that I would have expected to be quicker. Such as 370Z, Lotus Elise (n/a I’m assuming, not boosted), WRX and others.

 

 

Dad did well too, getting a 1:37.3436

Yes can most certainly hear those tyres protesting.

 

I miss taking the car out on the track specially sandown, I think from memory my quickest in the 2+2 was about 1:49 with a reasonably stock engine.

 

Car sounds very nice

My fastest lap, where the video didn't work, I removed the airbox and piping.

Allowing the car to breath better...... I've always wanted to try it and if nothing else, felt faster purely as it sounded INSANE!!!!!!!

Nice work Simon, Harry's is good for the speed overlays on the video's.

 

Only two Z's was there any other Datto's?

It certainly does sound insane without the airbox!
