    VAG Track nite - Knockhill Friday 22nd July 6-8PM

    Ok folks - after the huge success of the VAG-only track school I organised at Knockhill, I am looking to put on a track night this summer.

    Friday the 22nd of July is available for an evening of VAG-only track time, 6-8PM, 2 hours of pure track time for 50 per car, 30 cars. Who's up for it? This MIGHT be a Star Performance track event, I'll speak to Jim.

    VAG-only!

    A little although to be honest I learnt the track fairly well when I was there last summer - there is something about holding your life and car in hands that hurries up the learning process - something that just isn't there on GT4.

    It's well done on GT4, but doesn't give a good impression of the inclines, bumps, changing tarmac conditions and other drivers [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    No idea of lap times sorry, turns out my DV was leaking boost on Saturday so I was on much reduced power!

    RS4 Barry was there giving it some in his monster, he had a great time! Jim and Brian from Star were on track too, I'll post up some pics, here's one of mine for now:



    Track manners were very good from everyone, that's why I want to keep it VAG only.

    Robbie - please count me in. Will take my TT Golf on, it's great fun round knockhill.

    Will see if I can persuade Doug to bring his 450 brake S2 along too!

    Here is me at the track school you organised.

    **DATE CHANGE - JULY UNSUITABLE - MAY OR JUNE DATE TBC**

    Nice piccie m8. Turns out I was only running 6PSI of boost instead of 20 due to a very, very poor seal on my DV - fixed now, next time I'll be MUCH faster - hose fixed too! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Jim dyno'd it this morning after the fixes, 275BHP and 271lbft.

    I am up for this.

    Although if it is going to be a Star Performance trackday, can you check with Jim if my car is allowed - it will be covered in another tuning companies stickers.

    Robbie - should hopefully still be up for the new date.

    Glad to hear your car is fixed, though I didn't realise you had a problem on the day.

    I see Doug required little persuasion!
