View Full Version : Some racing videos from last weekend

The weekend dubbed #minigate by some, it was action packed and controversial to say the least! Lots on unneccesary contact and other bs but here's the videos anyways (GPS logger working this time)

Race 1:
Brilliant start only to be squeezed off the track heading up to the first corner, let out and got passed by a few cars. Got thumped up the bum at Macintyres, then a couple of 50/50 lunges at Clarks resulting in near spins as I had to avoid the other cars turning in where possibly there could have been more space left. Got some good racing towards the end and pipped Murray on the last lap. But any race where you go 7th to 13th is not one to savour really. Apologies for the comedy camera angles towards the end, the bullet cam loosened on it's mountings.

Race 2:

Bit mundane if I'm honest. Blasted past Alan off the start then kept it on the track as others fell off and made up some places from 13th to finish 9th. After race 1 we all got read the riot act in a meeting which did little to put people in the right frame of mind for racing. The fun was missing from race 2 and we just weren't that up for pushing it.

Race 3 before the red flag:

Gutted the flags came out, I was HAULING! Two cars in the first lap and a half and about to get the head down after Kenny McLeod

Race 3, take 2:
Nothing like as good a start. Lewis got round me at Macintyres and we all get bunched up in to the chicane. Cannonballed up the rear at Clarks. Fought back up the field, then smacked off at the hairpin by the same person as the cannonball. That'll teach me for being clean and leaving space for them trying the cut back, apex sponsored by NCP next time out.

No worries dude, didnt realise that could be done.

Wish I had a video of testing before race day when one of the girls brakes failed and she used the back of my car to stop from 95mph! Anyone who claims whiplash after someone rolls in to the back of them at a set of traffic lights at 10mph can fuck right off!

I'm digging the telemetry overlay, that's pretty awesome.

My new toy that. Racelogic VBox lite. Does gps circuit overlays as well so you can analyse your fastest laps and see where your lines were different. Haven't installed the incar laptimer yet, sits on top of the steering column and gives you real time sector info so in qualifying you can tell if you're up or down on your best and back out to save the tyres if the laps already shot.
