    Well you seemed to have clipped most of the Apexs just about right Steve and the car never seemed stressed. The part where you followed the BMW Estate gives a better idea of the speed. It looked a bit twitchy. Interested that when he was really pushing it, it was the brakes and initial turn into the corners that seemed to give you the advantage.

    Won't mention the soundtrack I made up my own brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrm, brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrm brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrm impression this time.

    Well done on the time. Was that the fastest achieved by the club?

    You seamed to have slowed down just before you came upto the beemer. Then you seamed to go for it again.
    Top work Steve. Nice video and nice time.

    Which part Shan, as I was approaching him for the first time, or literally just before I overtook him ?

    I know everyone says this... BUT... honestly, the car had so much more to give, but I had only done 2 laps and was still getting the feel for it. When I was preparing for a fast lap with Dave (DAP Performance) we both had our race helmets, gloves & shoes on.... then it rained and rained and rained and rained..... stopped our fast laps, we were both gutted.

    Fastest lap time achieved by the club was Dave (DAP Performance) in an Astra VXR Stage 3 (300+ BHP) at 8 Minutes 48 seconds.. I was 9 seconds slower over 13 miles with a car weighing 200KG more (and Dave drives the Nurburgring all the time), so I really wanted to get out with a fast lap against him (just for kicks)

    I honestly think I could get 08:30's

    lol - I'd love to see the faces of your passengers... the Ring Taxi is normally a BMW M5. 170mph Vectra VXR would be a first.

    I think you would enjoy it too much and not come back....
