Some lekker "kerb-hugging", which helps to catch up with the faster cars where those drivers avoid the kerbs...
Looks like awesome fun!
I feel a lot less wise at 45 than I did at 15.

I was there and I saw you flying around.

Hats off to you. Awesome driving there. Keeping great lines and giving much faster cars a hard time.

You the bloke with the MR2?!

Love that car... Was really nice meeting you, and I'm glad you got the linkage sorted - you were going nicely in the afternoon :cool:

Have not put a video with normal sound up on Youtube. All you can hear is a click when I'm shifting gears, and the 'WHHAAAAAAAP' of the cars passing me :lol:

Its scary some of the things people do on the track!!!

Some you look at them and say "if that car didnt have the ESP and electronic aids that it has, the guy would be in the barrier on lap 1"

Check this out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0gJPAJHvbI" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Apparently that same Jetta caused the silver scooby to hit the barrier
