    Vic Time Attack - Philip Island 1st April 2016

    EDIT:

    So a quick bump on this one. Jason has reached into his pocket again to put the event on. Be fucked if I would do it but he is really passionate about time attack racing and trying to get other events off the ground so we see these cars more than once a year. Will be coming over again to circulate in the RX7. Already confirmed to have last years winner Integrated Motorsports GTR there, A trick mines GTR and the possibility of the MCA VQ37 powered 86.

    Bonus this year is the event is followed by PIARC days so those that are travelling from further afield will have the bonus of additional track days after the main event if they are still wanting more.


    Hey Gents,

    was sure I spotted a generic thread on this but couldn't find it so thought I would kick one off here in the Motorsport section. Event is on at PI on 1st April this year. A mate is involved in running the event and due to that cant drive his bonkers carbon bodied FD RX7 so has offered me a drive in it. (humblebrag) Cant fkn wait. I reckon PI would be hard to beat as a venue for this type of event. Hopefully the weather turns it on and its a good day. Should be a really good mix of cars.

        I plan on entering Clubsprint. I can't compete against the likes of skylines etc for a class win. But gotta support these things.

          Cheers for that. Greatly appreciated. Will check in and see what arrangements have already been made if any.

            Hey Lightyear Id imagine your a fair bit under weight for your model, whats the lightest you can run with the 5% reduction, also what are your plans for your front aero package, have you got something that doesnt extended more than the 50mm forward of the front bar that your allowed ?

            I only ask cause I only have 1 goal ....... lol

              Some people do have the perception my car is ultra light. It's my road/track car. So only roof and boot are lightweight, and no braces. So about 50kg lighter than stock. The spoiler I have is 50mm. But for this event I will be making a new aero package. To fit the rules, and provide downforce.

                  I am pretty sure I know what lap time I can do with the new aero set up, but the non R spec tyres are an unknown for me. Will they be much slower than a Nitto NT01? The Advan tyres probably cost more than the NT01.

                      I run 15x9 rims with 225/45 tyres. They don't make that size. Will look into my options. I might be able to borrow some 17" rims.

                        I wouldn't think AD08s will be slower than an NT01.
                        When I changed the Soarer from cheap Federal 595 and Achillies Sport II street tyres to NT01 I only went 7 tenths faster. You'd expect at least that much if you went to a tyre like AD08 or RS3.
                        Changed from NT01 to Z221 and went 1.4 faster. That's both at Lakeside (2.4km).

                          Would like to do this event. Never been to P.I. and it has to be a bucket list track in Oz. Will only go if we have new motor but the date is a bit of a worry with new donk and travelling. How many things could go wrong on April Fool's day...
