If I'm being honest, I thought the general track behaviour was very good - yourself included :thumleft:

Especially from watching that video, you let off the power etc. to let people past.

Some good driving there, too. With a bit of practice you'll be keeping pace with the other guys out there I'm sure!

Me too ive just been going through all bids uploaded in last week to spot cars. Found mine and dans in a couple but nothing of swift. I cant believe no on was recording. But saying that ive not found any featuring our track sessions so if people wernt recording us they were definately not recording a swift. Saw him go by our stand very slow on straight so no one was probably paying attention until a big bang.

They probably don't turn in too early for the car set up, experience and tyres there on.
I took a well known club member track Guru around Brands in my car and he mentioned that I turned in a lot sooner than him.
I explained that I was using value road tyres and had to get in early to allow the car room to drift to the exit rumble strips, it can also give you more track space to correct any unforced errors etc ;)
Road tyres just don't have the level of grip to turn in at the same point as semi-slicks

I noticed the above actually, having run road tyres at Combe for the forge day and running AD08Rs last weekend was a very interesting experience, as nothing else has been done to the car performance wise in the interim. The grip was obviously much better, but I found myself driving different lines. I wasn't 100% sure why, it just felt quicker, but that obviously explains it :lol:

I do try at Combe to go offline and move apexes as maybe just maybe if i go racing and find myself diving down the inside i will have some insight how to get round the corner. Wont be this year now though.
