Ney, i like how the black breaks up the whiteness. Your car at the end of the day though so entirely up to you.

So Monday was Silverstone GP day - in short, if you get a chance, just go - what an experience, what a track!

I'm pleased to report all of the bits I added/refreshed (new vts rack & bilstein's etc) were well worth the money, despite being a very wide, long F1 circuit the Pug was utterly brilliant. The agility and ability to put its power down just never ceases to amaze, running rings around the non-race cars in the twisties...

So it was another early start, checking in at 8am for the Newbies briefing, which was truthfully pretty intimidating given that the car park and brief were full of amazing machinery with full on back up teams, trailers etc etc

Nice drive down the M40 with no sound deadening was a joy lol





The sense of occasion and sheer scale of Silverstone when you are down in the pits is something else, and with my own garage area it really was a bloody impressive setup......AND it was only bloody sunny ALL DAY....in Feb! Happy days...



Some nice machinery in the next garage...



Lining up amongst some very tasty kit!



The first few sessions both in the morning and after lunch were predictably terrifying, with loads of cars on track, but it soon cleared after a good 20 min window.

Had some great fun chasing/playing and i'm pleased to report overtaking Clio's....(although a couple of more sorted race one's did leave me for dust...)



The eagle eyed may also notice the cloud of smoke in the above pic from the morning...it transpired I over filled the oil on Sunday and after a good old slide avoiding a static radical, it promptly smoked its t*ts off for about 5 laps - after that we were all good (thank god)

So the good pics...

Tripod!!!



Believe it or not, this is 100mph in 4th...







As you can see, the weather was amazing, dry all day, however that did take its toll on my tyres, particularly where 2 of the corners off the straights are taken at 90 in 4th...

In the morning they got very hot...



At 3pm the front left threw in the towel after 3 track days...



And finally, a nice 17min youtube vid to demonstrate how the lowly 170bhp gti6 can hang on to Stage 3 Focus ST's and Hybrid turbo'd 300+ bhp Astra Coupe Turbo's!

https://youtu.be/bYSQveHD0y8

All in all an amazing day, the car was fantastic, although I really do want a cage and bodies to finish it off nicely. If you still havent taken your '6 out on track, do it - its bloody brilliant

Cheers

Chris

A few questions for YOU !

Sure no worries, here you go....

1.What sort of top end speed were you achieving Chris in what gear ?

I was certainly one of the slower cars on track top end wise, on the old pit straight a little over 100mph in 4th, on the big straight (hanger straight) around 110-115 depending on passenger or not, that was in 5th (didn't touch 6th once)

2.what gear were you mostly using m8 ?

Mostly 4th, there is one chicane (top of new pit straight) and one hairpin (immediately after the new pit straight) where I'd take 2nd, but get through that and 3rd pretty quickly

3.How smooth is the track ?

Incredibly so, there is one very small undulation on the main straight that I didn't even notice when driving but you do watching. The kerbs on some of the tighter corners are bloody massive!!

I've done 4 TD's at Bedford, and now this, as well as having spectate at Donnington and I would confidently say Silverstone is the best, albeit I would want another 20-30bhp before going back again. However, if you look in my vid, I'm keeping much much more powerful cars honest, so I'd imagine yours would be epic!
