I am officially living in Brisbane now and I am currently playing the waiting game with Telstra. For some reason it is taking them weeks on end to connect the new place to the net (hence my lack of new content) but apparently it will be sorted this weekend and I will be able to spam my life away.
I have attend a few events over the past couple of weeks but with my insanely slow 3G mobile phone connection, I am unable to upload any pics.
So here is Part 2 of the last Porsche Club day….
For a recap of part 1, see here.
Event 2 of the Porsche Car Club 2012 motorsport calendar was a first for me, being my first club event and the first time driving Morgan Park.
The day started out fairly ordinary with me rushing like a mad man trying to change the s14’s street wheels & tyres over to my track wheels and sticky tyres, only to discover during the warm-up lap that wider grip tyres were seriously scrubbing. I have no idea why I continually insist on changing things at the track as it always bits me in the arse and this occasion was no exception with me having to forgo the first session to make further rear end adjustments.
After sorting out my straight line smoke screen issue, the s14 was running sweet. Sure it is slow and non inspiring, but it just goes round and round without a hitch so I can drive it flat all day. Something that would never happen with the old s14.
Time wise, I managed consistent 1:15’s (1:15.3 pb) which I am semi happy about. I really wanted to drop another second but I just couldn’t get any more out of the old girl.
Anyway, the Porsche Club ran what I would consider, the most organised, well run sprint day that I have ever attended. The members were welcoming (even to a beat up Silvia owner) and the track time plentiful, so I have decided to pencil in the whole session into my motorsport calendar.
