:lol:

That was late on in the session and I lifted the clutch WAY too quickly...... back wheels locked up invoking the slide. That's the first time letting go of the steering wheel mid slide to control the car felt intuitive :lol: :D

Nope. I insisted on kicking the back of the car out on the hairpin almost every lap. And blatting round 40+ laps took quite a bit of life out of my treads... :lol:

Hmm lots of hands off wheel it seems - me thinks you were just going for a wee drive and leaving the mit on the gearstick a bit too much??? :wink:

Great vid though

Nice to see Maxine back in action and going well from the looks of it
