Track Day at Silverstone - VX220SC content

Postby chris.t » Wed 25.08.2010, 10:23

a very wet day at Silverstone. Damp/wet from 9-11, then the track dried out for 2 hours, then it started to hose it down for the best part of the afternoon. Race control hit by lightening, river running down pit lane and through the pit garages. Track closed for 2 hours in the afternoon, Bridge complex flooded so they changed the track configuration. I had one big slide and got away with it but 3 others didn't and ended up with very damaged cars.

Anyway here's a vid of some of my dry laps and a vid of my slide

Could the 'Hokey-Cokey' actually be what it's all about?

Looks great fun Chris - I'm proper jealous. Didn't seem to take much to produce the slide....remember that feeling from Combe this year! But why cut the slide vid so short? We wanted to see the doughnut recovery etc.....! 8)

yes sorry about that, my camera records in 5 min chunks and that comes at the end of the 5 min. Its fed off the ignition, the car stalled and it had to be restarted so hence the gap. there was another 180 degs of spin after that. You also missed my "WHAT THE FCUK" exclamation!!
