    Winton Track Day 17/02/2008

    Hey guys,

    Just went to Winton Raceway yesterday for an RX8 track day and thought i'd share the experience, and some pics with u.

    was a pretty hot day, above 30 degrees, and a lot hotter out on the track.

    The car held up pretty well. i had the heaters in the car turned on and directed out my passenger side window, to try to help keep the coolant cool.

    PB for the day was 1:49.8, which i think i can improve on seeing it was my first track day, and i wasnt braking or accelerating to the cars full potential (was shifting at about 6k to 7k max... didnt wanna blow my engine .. haha)

    anyway a few pics of my pig.


    lining up




    on the track

    this the only vid i got pretty shitty quality tho...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JQVA14vqEA


    um , yeah i was quicker than a couple of the rx8's there. the rest were pretty quick. But i wasn't driving with them , as they were in the advanced group. the Fastest ones were pulling 1.42 laps. which is pretty dam good.

    The quickest one that pulled the 1.42 came on a trailer tho, so those guys mean business.
