For context, jumping ahead...

2016?.. Cayman S around Sandown. another car I shouldn't have sold (wife agrees on this one..).


Crikey, that car was fast  :o :o :o :o 8) 8) I would not have sold it either :'(
I was wrong, The Bend footage blew me away. I cannot even imagine the buzz that would give you :o :o :o.

Ok so I've got a few track vids from before, too.   These were done with the stage2 tuned Toyota 86 - I loved that car, too, especially on the track, it was meant to be taken out.
I've a wet session record here, too.  But it's nowhere near that bad.  (to see the others if you like, copy this link in - sorry I can't just leave put the link here, the forum software converts it into a video: www dot youtube dot com/watch?v=NoKwB7upTVc&list=UUZ7i-XgnXjRB3zIqO0X1hrw )

Also I dared not completely take the TC off at this point, yet.  Later I had sessions with TC off, but I have stopped making videos of these sessions after a while.   I should have taken tc off earlier, it's a lot more educational; and catching the 86 mid-spin is actually very easy - with years of online experience, hehe. ;)

Nice one Bird, Wakefield was the track I went to for a lot of Historic racing ( I used to live in Canberra) great track for spectators as you can see all of the track :). I will be interested in watching some dry track action of you ;) from your link.

Nice of you to say that, thanks.

Well, the link is there, I think that gives you all the videos...some of them are Wakefield, some are Eastern Creek.

Here's an early one, fast lap at Wakefield.
This is all on semi slicks in the dry, so I could pull very nice corners :)

Oh, here's this one;  I'm chasing down an M4.   He can pull 100m on me on the main straight, but simply can't leave me behind the rest of the track.
Not wakefield, but it's one of my favourite few laps ;)

AB that fezza must have been fun.   I was toying with the idea of driving the rentable 360 around EC (you can see me overtaking it on the previous video at the start)  But since it's a very expensive exercise, I gave up on it (it was $700 for essentially a single 20-min session of driving)  But I regret not trying it, now.  I can no longer survive these G-forces without getting very sick.

AB, how did you get your car from state to state? Did you drive the Porsche to SA?

Now that would have been fun 8) M4 in theory a much faster car but not in this case. Very nice laps at Wakefield with the slicks too Bird.

Looks perfectly safe to me AB ;D , grip level is much higher than I was expecting, what track was that?

Tailem Bend - my new favorite track.  Doesn't look that good on TV but it is an awesome drive.

In this case I drove it over.  It was a private, 2 day, track hire with a group of Melb cars.  I was too late to get on the transport package and the cost to ship just mine alone was silly.

I did learn that you can get from Tailem Bend to Melb CBD on a single tank of fuel on the way back ;)

Deep into withdrawal now... have missed both a Sandown and PI track day and was supposed to be heading of to Tassie for the Targa Tour this week..

Reminiscing the first session around PI after the GT3 was run in, eye opening.



PI is a proper mans track, I drive it like a boy.  I am reliably informed Stoner (T3) and Hayshead (T8) should be flat on a good run. ah..... no.

You're hitting the apexes well. 1.4 lateral G's is pretty hefty. Where are you getting that telemetry from?

That session was just with the Porsche Precision App on my "burner  :-X phone".  It's not too bad, the car has a wi-fi network that is used to send the ODBCII data across, just associate the phone to that network.  I ended up ditching it as the video was doing my head in.  You are supposed to be able to sync with a gopro but I (nobody) can get it to work so you are stuck with using the camera on the phone.

I now have a AIM Solo 2 which plugs onto the ODBII on the car and pulls data, I can then use that data to overlay video (e.g. Tailem Bend).  Bit more work but better results. You also get full Motec readable data output.
