Mallala Saloon Car race - 5 June 2010 - Holden Commodore VN
This is an in-car video from VN Commodore Saloon Car #91 driven by me,
Naomi Maltby. It's most of a race at Mallala from the HQ Enduro
(non-points) meeting. This was the first try with a new in-car camera from
eBay - clearly we need to mount it a bit higher up next time. At the top of
the screen you can see the other cars in the mirror, which is kind of
cool...The date stamp is incorrect, I don't know how to set it. Enjoy!

TripleA's V8 Race Experience @ Mallala Motor Sport Park
Disclaimer: When I get passed reaaaally fast, is because when a pro gets
behind you, you have to let off the gas so he can get around you faster and safer. You don't have a rear
viewer mirror (it's positioned for the coach driver), so you don't know
what's coming behind you until your partner tells you to let off (in my
case, always too late). I wish he had been more communicative. All he did
was sit there and enjoy (or should I say, endure?) the ride.
Since it rained earlier today, we had to wait about an hour for the track
to dry up enough to be relatively safe. Therefore, we rookies had to be
extra cautious which made us look even more amateur next to the
professional drivers who were doing hot laps for their passengers.
At the safety briefing, we were asked to take it very easy the first 3 laps
and let the other drivers pass (since would have been on the track earlier
and would probably be doing their last laps, which are obviously their
Miss Shift paid me an embarrasing visit on lap 1 and made it clear that she
liked to be handled the hard way. From then on, it was all love and
devotion between us and she did not have to complain a second time.
Laps 2-3 were a good time to learn the track and get used to the extreme
stiffness of the pedals and shifter.
Lap 4 was the one to test how well the tires could stick at higher speeds.
Lap 5 was the one to test how quickly I could come to a stop that wouldn't
involve a fire crew pulling me out of a burning wreck.
Lap 6 was the one where I was good enough to confidently overtake other
Lap 7 was the one where I finally felt comfortable with the track, the
power, the braking, the shifting and the steering. At last, I felt like I
could finally start racing the way that car like is meant to be raced . . .
Too bad lap 7 was also my last and I had to take early retirement from my
infamous racing career.
As I approached the end of my ride, I was finally learning how much faster I could go while still having
enough room to brake for the track's super tight corners. By the way,
Mallala has the third FASTEST turn in Australia followed immediately by the
second SLOWEST, so it would have taken at least 3 more laps to build up the
skill to take that turn with the pedal to the metal.
Those safety markers (the cones) were way over-cautions, but that was
probably because the track was wet. By the end of the run, I realised I
should have been letting off the throttle PAST the cones and braking only
half-way between then cones and the turn-in point, not letting off before
the cones and braking at the cones like I did the first 5 laps.
I wish I had been able to go another 7 laps. Judging by the speed the
professional drivers passed me during their hot laps, I'm confident I would
have dropped about 10 seconds of my fastest time in the subsequent 7 laps.
Anyway . . . the fun is over and it's back to iRacing for me. I realised
I've got to stiffen up the wheel on the simulated V8 to pair it up with the
real deal. I also realised that the simulated V8 spins WAY too much. The
real V8 I drove today was not nearly as sensitive. The car was AWESOME and
it could TURN very tight and go from 160kph to 40kph in no time. It's truly
a sensational car to drive.
