Spa trip Apirl 3rd

Post by Kinger » Fri Apr 06, 2018 9:22 pm

Here a short Video of Baz and myself out having some fun at Spa on Tuesday after the rain went off.

Baz, didn't realise just how close you were to catastrophe with your near brush with the grass going through Balanchimont at north of 100mph. Looks like you missed the grass by a foot or so, well done !!

I'll get another clip up later.

Blanchimont is definitely a place you don’t want to go too wrong.

I had every faith in Baz, OK I couldn't brake or lift off much so just went with it and Baz must have missed the grass by at least a foot. He did a great job not lifting or braking either, if so it would have been a quick trip to the wall. Is that why you went to the loo when he got in the pits Baz :lol:

Absolutely brilliant trip.

Great fun following Stu trying to replicate his lines, really happy with results but failed miserably at Bus stop and La Source. Tried to follow Stu but just seemed to take the easy line and is was so apparent Stu carried so much more speed out of each corner.

That said I was chuffed my best laps were in the 2mins 58 secs, checked my old video's and I was 10 sec's a lap slower in my old V6 and 15 sec's slower in my Elise cup. Now looking forward to Zandy and Zolder in September.
