Seeing as the original thread got locked, due to you know who, we'll have to start another...

I took mine to Phillip Island again today, a perfect weather day. I was busy though as I was running a 458 also, but with my helper managed to balance the two cars perfectly. Especially satisfying as a nasty stomach bug has knocked both myself and my helper out last couple of days.

Anyway, New pbs all round, and I finally drove on my own new tyres for my first time ever! And found the gain too which was doubly satisfying!!

I'm still only down to 1.38.3, while the newer model Radicals are doing 1.33 or there abouts. But I cant be bothered buying different gear ratios for a play toy that I don't care to race competitively. Although I would like to gauge myself against a pro now.

McLaren had some cars here too, 650s... Great machine, but they're STILL underwhelming in the flesh. They lack presence.

15 of us took it. Two sessions of practice followed by two 5 lap races. Never driven at Sandown before in anything, so it was good to see the track properly. Radical ran really well, one of the fastest cars there, but there was a v8 supercar plus a gazillion horsepower skyline powered sports sedan Commodore too, the three of us were closely matched. They gridded me up to start second last for first race like a reverse grid race. I got a ripper start and got 3rd by turn 1, and finished second after a great tussle with sports sedan guy. In second race I started off pole, got a great start again, then got driven past fir the lead up the back straight by the v8 supercar. Then I out braked him at dandy road, but looped it on exit and dropped back to 5th I think. I finished 3rd though.

Heaps of fun, and now I'm a licenced race driver... Kind of! Watch out!
