Awesome vid Bill! Such a shame about the knock sensor light stopping our fun, I was quite looking forward to being pushed along under pressure :laugh:
So, esterday BigAl and I headed to Audi Driver international at Castle Combe. We met LOADS of people there, I won't name everyone, just incase I forget one or two and they feel left out, but it was great to see everyone :)
ADI is run as a typical Castle Combe sessioned day, but tends to be FAR quieter than the action days, and we were lucky enough to get in on a trade and track access pass through a friendly black and white stripey furry associate , so basically had open pitlane lapping all day :)
The day started off SOAKING wet, we were running on Dunlop 03G's, so not ideal, was pretty slippery (and slow!)

It dried out a bit, so BigAl headed out, this is just a short clip with an appearence from Gurds at 1:16

Poor old ABF breathing a little heavily - goes bloody well though with a blower on it :)Quote:
If Gurds doesn't get you with his new power, he'll smoke you to death
After lunch I fitted the yoko slicks, after carrying these all the way to Spa and back to not use them, I was determined to try them!

I was impressed! the turn in is incredible, lateral grip is a good few notches up from the Road tyres, and braking is just amazing!
Got a few more to add later of BigAl driving on the slicks in the dry, Also saw Stumpy there, the S4 looking gorgeous as always!
All in all, top day. it was a really nice change to get some decent clear track at Combe and do more than just a few sessions so you can really get into the groove :)
