Had a good time despite being very sleep deprived, took a while to stitch together the dashcam footage as it was split into many sections due to the g sensor triggering the dashcams to create lots of 30 seconds files.


Was having a good time on track though the handling felt very wayward having a mixture of tyres on the car with 40 and 45 sidewalls (ABS pulsated like mad and also seemed to cut the power at times when accelerating above 65mph out of the last corner).
Midway through the session a peice of debris bounced down the track and cracked my windscreen as it hit right in the corner, if it was a centimeter off it would have missed it completely and if it was more central it would have just chipped the screen rather than cracking :evil:

Thanks to everyone involved in making it such a great day. And congrats on winning such a prized trophy! :D

I can confirm hurtling around Brands Hatch in a car is as much fun as a bike. Jessica really enjoyed the track and was already asking when we are going next! :thumleft:

Haven't had time to download the dashcam yet and probably won't until I return from Germany. Hopefully it was turned on. :shock:
