Radical SR8, Magny-Cours 19-11-2011, Tinseau Test Days, découverte...
Essai de la Radical SR8 à M-Cours le 19-11-2011
Après la SR3, la SR8 plus puissante (450cv) est beaucoup plus subtile à
dompter et à placer... l'écart est beaucoup plus important par rapport
à tout ce que j'ai essayé, et demande beaucoup plus de temps d'adaptation
et oublier surtout les repères de la GT...
Il faut me familiariser avec l'aéro de cette auto pour en exploiter le
potentiel... du travail en perspective !
Un "Ideal Time " de 1'46 tout de même ...
