Nice video Tsporter
Great meeting with Japohara, Tsporter and got92tubby. You all looked to be having great crack on and off the track, Kc'd
Sorry for not spending more time with you all. Was getting my fix of laps for most of the day like a veteran meth head.
Good lap times as well Tsporter, certainly I had a hard time keeping up and catching you guys. I did turn the screw up a bit when you starting following me though
If you have a full set of yellow I can swap them with you for the full set of Greenstuff pads I got. I believe they are less prone to dust. I didn't get to meet Japohara on track at all but he was enjoying the MR2 for all it could give, fair play. Especially entertaining in the wet when looking up the main straight.
I was sharing my car with one of the lads from work and my Dad came down for a few laps as well. Didn't manage to get Rupolph out as the engine mounts had collapsed following the last outing despite the best efforts of got92tubby I just could not get the replacement front and rears to line up with the mounting holes. So had to take the Boss woman's car out running on the Toyo road tyres and other sum such ones. That was all grand in the dry but when it rains the tonka inspired rear tyres were lighting up more due to the level of plastic imbued in them than the bootful of torque. So back to the Toyos for the wet and some controllable sliding for shits and giggles. The MR2 is a perfect fun car for the wet with adequate tyres, really provided great smiles per mile.
Got92tubby came out for a few laps in the passo seat hope he enjoyed it. Mondello is the N/A's natural environment and I think it impressed him. I was well happy with its performance on the day considering it hasn't seen a bit of tarmac in at least eight months.
Anyway my workmate has asked to take joint ownership in the MR2 and I have agreed as splitting the cost and having people to share the experiences and work with makes it all the more enjoyable. So plenty more track-time to come and money to be invested in getting the track hack quicker.
We completed 217Kms and used 55 litres of juice i.e. 3.045 kms per litre or 8.6 MPG, Gulp!
To give you all an idea of the times out there my dad had timed some laps.
Ferrari in the full wet 2:17
MR2 in the dry 2:17
Lotus Exige in the dry 2:06 (or close enough)
Godzilla in the wet 2:15
Godzilla in the dry 2:08
Lotus racing car 1:52 (holy funk)
This may or may not be the best laps achieved by the cars but what was taken at different points in the day. I have no videos or photos.
