Apex Trackdays - Oulton Park - 7th August 2012
Some highlights from our day at Oulton Park. It rained a bit for the first
hour or so, then the sun came out and dried everything nicely by lunch, but
the track was still a bit slippy in the usual places for quite a while (as
the vid shows!).
Some 'interesting' driving as always at Oulton (5 baseball-capped youths
sharing an Impreza sound familiar?), but no major incidents and everything

likely due bad conrod bearing.

JDT Autos for getting it all set up. www.jdtautos.com

spoilers (and, consequently, downforce) for the first time. You can tell
the difference as Radisich attacks the kerbs in his Mondeo V6.
ONBOARD John Cleland at Oulton Park 1992
