    Default Vectra C at Castle Combe - Track Action Day - 09/04/2011

    The Castle Combe action day is usually a good introduction to track action I took my Vectra C GSI 3.2 yesterday.
    The car is modified with a cat back Scorpion exhaust(221BHP), Bilstein B12 suspension, EBC 315mm grooved std size rotors with yellow stuff pads.
    The wheels are 17x7 with 225/45x17 Hankook R-S2's all round! What a fantastic day please dont be too critical of my apexes, i think i missed 4 out of 5 but the heavy C was real fun to drive. the Vectra B in front was a little faster.


    please let me know if you have trouble viewing the video!
    cheers

    Looks like you were all having fun

    Heavy traffic towards the end looked like a Friday afternoon race home

    Cheers, I had a great day, my brakes were giving up! The traffic was really bad at times, typical action day stuff.

    After my few track days and skid pan gymkhana runs, the brakes always faded very quickly. This was soon fixed with some high tempt racing fluid, EG TRW 600. Its a Dot 4 Fluid for applications on cars that do moderate track work. So its rated to over 700 degrees.

    Looks like you had a lot of fun mate. (Your racing line was quite good mate!)

    The pro photographer took a few good pics, This one shows the nearside suspension loaded up, the front tyre is performing well. The rear looks well planted the rear camber coming into play!
