At the Great British car event at the TT in Assen (The Netherlands) visitors without any racing experience could drive their car for about 20 minutes around the race track.
This is a snapshot of me driving my Jaguar XKR three-quarters of a lap. Since the race was meant mainly for casual drivers, no real spectacular actions are there to be seen. And since it´s my daily driving car, I´m a bit cautious not to flip over or land in the rough. ;)
Great British 14 Augustus MINI Cooper S Vrij Rijden T3
14 Augustus 2011 vond op het TT circuit van Assen het Great British evenement plaats. Tijdens dit evenement kreeg je ook de kans om vrij te rijden op het circuit! Hier een onboard filmpje vanuit mijn MINI Cooper S in groep T3 (16:10) Enjoy!
MGF Trophy 160 at Assen session 2 part 1 at "Great British" onboard spins and thrills in the wet
"Great British" event at Assen TT circuit, the Netherlands on August 14th.
First session was too wet to record on tape (in all honesty, instead of having the camera on video mode it was on photo, so I have one photo instead of one video of session one :-(
Session 2 was still very wet with a very slippery track and some oil spils.
Not all spins were caused by oil, being too eager works just as well ;-)
Conclusion after the wet sessions was that the DS2 tyres are much more suited for wet tracks than the DS3 I have on it...
They are nearly impossible to get nowadays, the DS2's.
Luckily, at the end of the day, the sky cleared and the cleaning up of the oil spils delayed our third session.
That meant that the track was completely dry now, making some fast runs possible, just like at Spa. I should have know better though, trying to stay ahead of the pace car....
Another spin was the result. No pain no gain.
Fastest time that day was 2:26.8, fastest in the wet was 2:58.1
Laptimes and OBDII data recorded with RaceChrono and OBDKey Bleutooth and RaceChrono video insert at the beginning of the first lap generated with RaceChrono2AVI.
