Woohoo!

Looking at those trap speeds, it's telling what an effect the V8 engines have had on performance. I remember that with the V10s, they used to hit 330+ kph on the Kemmel straight, and would approach corners like Blanchimont at speeds greater than 320 kph.

Track is awesome, McLaren's new kit looks absolutely lethal, and Jessica is hot as usual. Triple threat of a weekend!
