A 1995 VW Corrado 2.9 VR6 lapping Castle Combe Circuit
This is a video of some gentleish laps of Castle Combe Circuit filmed at
the VW Driver magazine track day in July 2011. It was my first visit on
track for a couple of years so I was just feeling my way round. Plus the
car used was new to me, the trip down being the longest trip I had had in
it. In our Volkswizard workshop, we had replaced the tired original
suspension and fitted Koni dampers and Eibach springs and anti roll bars.
He also fitted new Pagid brakes all round which held up surprisingly well.
Tyres are Toyo Proxes T1-R running road pressures and again they performed
well. R888s will be ordered for the future. The suspension set up was
very good with very little understeer even at the dread Quarry Corner. My
only problem is that at 6" tall the Corrado's sunroof shell is a little
too tight for me with helmet on.
