      Man what a day. So racing was delayed for about 3 hours due to epic fog. To be honest the most intense driving I did was towing the car there and home- visibility was like 30m at times.

      I clearly have a lot to learn about that place but roughly my day went like this. (Sprint round so 4 flying laps per session so I had to try and learn quick):

      1st session: 1:51.5
      2nd session: 1:51.2
      3rd session: 150.6
      Surprise 4th free-for-all session: 149.0

      Here is the video of the 149.0. Messy AF but I tried pushing and that sun was blinding! Also apologies for the noise- I still have tailshaft vibration issues (and yes it was fkn loud in the car)

          Nice work. 49 on your first drive at PI. Outbloodystanding, looks like you could easily shave a couple more seconds off.

            Cheers mate. Every single time I came on the straight I had your voice in my head "don't run wide" lol

              Oh and it looks like 249kph is limiter in 5th. Once I got faster it was hitting it at the end of the straight

                Solid drive. What tyres are you running? I guess track temperature was cold too? +1 on the cheifs comments re shaving easy seconds off.

                  Top effort. Other than the little whoopsie at MG that was very tidy for your first day there and a solid time. See what you mean about the sun. No doubt has left you hungry for more laps. How smooth is that track hey? Itís in such good shape.

                    That fucking sun sucks balls.

                    So syrupy smooth that power delivery.

                    Driveline vibration is shit.

                    You should sell the thing.

                    when all else fails, hit it harder.

                      Yeah I wasn't expecting to blitz the ultimate lap in 4 short sessions but definitely more time available. Easier said than done though

                      Yeah I was fairly blind going down into MG and I wasn't confident on the turn in point still so I decided to panic and just botch the whole thing lol. My fastest lap at lakeside was the same with another cock up like that. I guess it's just my thing now- may as well own it. It's a really cool track. Can't wait to go back with the driveline vibrations sorted and figure out if I should pull 6th or not

                      I couldn't sell it with vibrations like that!

                        Decided to buy a digital from the photographer. Considering all my fuck ups he did well not to get a photo of me sliding around amateur hour style

                          Looks like you had fun and got to learn the track a bit. I saw your car there, it looks great as usual. 1:49 is good, quicker than my MX5.

                            You will need to narrow that down- you have a lot of MX5s and some are much quicker! I saw the aftermath of your fire but you were hosing it off by then and I was helping the Harrop guys- looked like you had it under control and didn't need another wanker asking you about it. Looks like it would cut a very decent lap when it's going.

                            My optimal lap times per session started at 1:51.1 and gradually went down to a 1:47.6 in the last session. So I'm still very green at the track with a grand total of 16 laps under my belt and 1.5s inconsistency in my best lap. Needless to say I'm very keen to go back and practice.

                              Smoothest track in Australia without a doubt. It's like a billiard table.

                              Nice work mate, 1.49 is not fucking about.

                                I was helping run the VicV8 guys and saw the RX7 doing some laps. 49's is impressive for a 1st at PI, well done.

                                I saw Dave putting the fire out on his MX5, I was helping by passing him the petrol container.

                                You mentioned turn 12 and dont run wide, did you see the aftermath of the escort?. No amount of buffing will fix that, poor guy.
