Trackday - Kames 16 Dec

Postby kevham » Sun Dec 16, 2007 9:37 pm

I did a 'trackday' at Kames today. Only 9 cars turned up so lots of tracktime and all for just £25!

I remembered my video camera so for those who've never been round, here is 3 laps of the clockwise circuit as if it was a sprint:

103 seconds? Nice!!

Would be good if you could've mounted your camera a little higher so that people could see just how tight/narrow that track is!

Fair point - camera angle "could have been better" - I can never be bothered to check these things nowadays - I'm more interested in driving than faffing with the camera. More often than not I forget to take the lens cap off ! :?

My times were not great yesterday - it was very cold and I think this limited the amount of available grip. From the videos, I was consistently doing 102-103 secs.

My point for posting was primarily because it was such great value. £25 and I did 12 runs (I could have done lots more). I was free to use the track as I wished - it was only one car at a time and this meant that you could go clockwise, anti-clockwise, on the rally track - whatever you wanted really.
