The trackday/youtube/video/look at me! thread.

Post by benedwards64 » Thu Nov 02, 2017 8:19 am

I could't really think of where to put this, so figured a thread for all of our YouTube escapades would be a good start. Apologies if one already exists, but if it does I couldn't find it :oops:

Anyway, here's your starter for ten:



This is me with passenger - two laps around Bedford Autodrome at the beginning of last week. I (stupidly, as it turned out) let a GT3RS out in front of us, thinking it would disappear off into the distance. I guess he was being a bit more careful than me :lol:

Happy to receive any critiques on my driving, but this was my first run at Bedford for 3 years or so ;)

Didn't seem to be. He had more to lose than me, though!

Much better , good run that fair play . I do like seeing a camera view from the rear showing how much the back of the car leans out on bends but always feels under control

Only just became aware that this thread existed. I posted these on my project thread earlier, but this is probably a better place for them:

Some of you old timers may remember the video series that I posted covering my 2014 European Road Trip while owning my previous RX-8. In 2016 we did a follow up trip. I took the FD. After finally collating everyone’s footage, I set about creating something more ambitious. This project got a little out of hand but it's finally done.

Here’s a bunch of short videos of 7 blokes driving sports cars across stunning European landscapes. Enjoy. :D

Really well put together videos. Wish my friends were cool enough to want to do that as a group. I know well and love some of those roads.
