Formula Vee BATHURST 2008 - Race 2 - Tim Hamilton [PART 1/2]

[Part 1 of 2. See below for links to further parts] Australia. 2008 WPS Bathurst Motor Festival FORMULA VEE CHALLENGE. Mount Panorama, Bathurst, New South Wales. February 8-10 2008. Field of 55 Formula Vee's competing. Onboard with Tim Hamilton, Race 2 starting from 5th, 6 laps. Starting 5th, Tim looses a number of positions early on, falling as low as 10th. Despite getting back to 6th, the lead group had towed away and an enthralling battle began with Gary Ogden (Mako 04) for the position. Racing side-by-side across McPhillamy (the mountain top) was a brave and daring highlight for the combatants. Unfortunately, nearing the end of lap 6, Tim makes heavy contact with the wall exiting Forest's Elbow (T18, onto Conrod Straight) resulting in a non-finish (DNF). Suspected to be as a result of choosing too-higher tyre pressures, Tim was battling a nervous & twitchy lack of grip, with both chronic under-steer and over-steer. Simply driver error, pushing too hard with oversteer through Forest Elbow, finally caught up to end the weekend. With no spares package, the damage was not repairable for the final race. DNF. 8th fastest lap time (2:45.7884 on lap 4). Race won by Ben Porter (Checkmate JP02) from Ryan Simpson (Jacer F2K6) and David Cutts (Jacer F2K6). +++[For PART 1: follow link below]+++ http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=O076_8BQFjg +++[For PART 2: follow link below]+++ http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLOAQxHdlig +++[Race 1 footage begins at link below]+++ http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=fb1h_GKqw4M -

First Formula Vee Drive - PA Hill Climb/SCCA Time Trials (Spring Jefferson at Summit Point)
1st place, 1st time driving the Maloney Racing Mk 2.5 Lazer and 1st TT event. Thanks Hughie for all the generous support! This was my final set of laps which were good enough for 1st place that weekend (after only getting to run the first day). I was only a couple tenths off the lap record held by my friend Chris Elwell. My main priority was to learn the limits of the car without incident. (there are some laps where I was experimenting and not following a perfect line intentionally)
