Well... Not going to comment on the video editing skills, but what I will say is that drop after the first corner looks nothing like it does in real life. No matter how much you watch touring cars/superbikes or whatever form of motorsport with on board footage, it never really shows how steep it is. It's a bloody exciting corner to say the least, and the drive up to the next one can be fun if you don't brake in time :lol:

Hahaha that white RS was owned!!

I wanna get on track, just need a fast car and some skill. Anybody got either going spare??


You don't need a fast car to have fun on track, sometimes a car with better handling will be fast around a circuit than one with more power. Skills are something you can develop. As long as you can drive you are pretty much on the ball for track day driving.

Me and Danny had epic fun in the ZS at Brands. 80mph round 2 corners and late braking after the hill made it very exciting :lol:

That only had 125bhp lol
