A little Video from Saturdays track day.



I was running on a 18x10 275/35 RA1 square setup.Car is a stock ZCP with 380MM Stoptechs.The car is way more neutral than my 08 was which had lots of oversteer.I am also really liking the M-DCT on track.

Loose is fast, and when you're on the edge you're out of control

Drop the hammer!

Loose is fun but then your tires look like this after 3 hours of running

It's actually a blast, other than you can't really stretch your legs out.

I hope they not have the major coolant leaks like the 2 GT3's at Mosport big track last week which caused a lot of problems for others that were on the track at the same time!There have been a few of these in the last while as there is a hose fitting that is bonded in the engine case and comes out on the track.

No - its the driver development track - they do a formula racing school there. Great place for people to learn or just have fun. Track has a few configurations and lots of turns with some elevation changes.

Its easy to miss - Basically the GP track is on 1 side - the Kart and Oval are in the middle and the DDT is on the other side.

Mosport is all about the GP Track though
