My Track Day

Hey guys, i had a track day this morning, Lambo Vs Aston

Here are the pics from the day : Facebook

Had the laps videod aswell, the laps in the Aston, including a rather embarrassing problem at the start of not being able to get it in gear : Log in | Facebook
these laps were quite slow, compared to my laps in the lambo gallardo.

The gallardo was absolutely awesome, i was expecting the Murcielago though, but that didnt arrive on the day so had to settle for the gallardo unfortunatly, the bloomin recording failed!!!! :'( so have no footage of me giving it some. Managed 120ish on the straight, i looked down and saw 110-115 i think and was still accelerating, but didnt see top speed. around 120 I THINK. so i really am gutted, as my drive in the Aston makes me look slow.

The weather looked like it was going to hold out, we had our briefings and demo laps, all made our way do the various supercars when we got a bit of a down poor which slowly got worse upto my drive in the Aston when it seemed to slow up a bit.

There was also a bit of a suprise there, a lovely supercharged Ariel Atom arrived, with THE STIG at the wheel, so i got 2 hot laps in the passenger seat with him, wow.... that... is... QUICK!!! and he can drive!!!! heres a bit of footage from my mum (badly) recording it : Log in | Facebook

Hope you like the pics... if they dont work, or you cant get onto my facebook links i will upload a select few best 1s of the day.

Enjoy
