This is me taking my Ibiza around Knockhill on a Track Scotland trackday.
Apologies for the poor camera mounting, I will try and find somewhere better next time!
I had Toyo R888s on at the front, they were amazing! Really got good heat into them even though it was damp.
And just to add my brakes were possibly the worst brakes I have ever experianced... Hence the ridiculously early braking.

SEAT SNOW TEST DRIVE: Want to know about driving in Snow?
Many of the road trips to be undertaken during the forthcoming Christmas
holidays will be towards mountain areas and snow destinations. It is always
important to have the car in perfect working order, but even more so if we
are going to be driving in adverse weather conditions. Also, certain advice
should be borne in mind for safe driving in snow and ice. These are
recommendations made by David Enfedaque, an engineer at the SEAT technical
It is not necessary to be an expert driver in these conditions, but
according to Enfedaque, “there are drivers who are unaccustomed to these
conditions, and nervousness may give rise to brusque manoeuvres”. The
most important thing is “to know how to anticipate, to be able to decide
in good time what manoeuvre is going to be carried out, handle the steering
wheels, brakes and accelerator smoothly, and keep calm”, he adds.
Anything other than smooth driving may give rise to skidding, instability
in the car and unsafe driving - See more at:

2015 Seat Leon ST Cupra 250 km/h Top Speed Performance Review
2015 Seat Leon ST Cupra 250 km/h Top Speed Performance
With the new Leon ST Cupra, a success story is moving onto the next level.
The first generation was launched in 1996 with the Ibiza, since when the
dynamic Cupra models have developed to become the icons of the SEAT brand.
In the new generation, the Leon three-door is being offered for the first
time as a Cupra - and now the Leon ST, too.
The Drive - top performance included
Cupra stands for power, performance, dynamics - and the new Leon ST Cupra
fulfils all these promises perfectly. The Cupra 280 with optional DSG
transmission, the brand's top model, catapults from zero to 100 km/h in
just 6.0 seconds, and in 6.1 seconds with the manual gearbox. The regulated
top speed of 250 km/h is a matter of course. The maximum torque of 350
Newton metres across the wide range of 1,700 to 5,600 rpm guarantees
impressive pulling power in every situation. And the Cupra with 195 kW /
265 PS and a maximum torque of 350 Newton metres is no more than a fraction
slower. Its acceleration time stands at 6.2 seconds with manual
transmission and 6.1 seconds with DSG.
Against this, the new Leon ST Cupra is astonishingly efficient. The average
fuel consumption for both power variants is just 6.6 litres with DSG and
6.7 litres with the manual gearbox. This equates to CO2 figures of just 154
and 157 grams.
The great Leon ST Cupra performance can go even further with the
Performance Pack that comprises larger Brembo brake callipers, specific
wheels and special tyres.
Hi-tech engine components
As a true sports engine, the 2.0 TSI reacts spontaneously to every movement
of the gas pedal and is deliciously high revving - paired with a rich and
refined sound that is aided and modulated by a sound actuator. The all-new
power unit with its exceptionally responsive turbocharger is packed full with hi-tech and
groundbreaking features - in the dual-injection system, the gasoline direct
injection is complemented under partial load by manifold injection. Its
optimum set-up reduces fuel consumption and particulate emissions. Cylinder
fill is always in the optimum range - the camshafts are adjustable, with
the valve lift system regulating opening on the Exhaust side. The Exhaust manifold is integrated into the cylinder
head and is part of the innovative thermo management system. An improved
coating and alloy for the aluminium pistons and the bearings keeps friction
to a minimum. The Cupra efficiency package also includes the start/stop
system and brake energy regeneration.
Also included as standard equipment, the progressive steering improves the
agile handling of the new Leon ST Cupra. The driver experiences a precise
and relaxed steering feel, less steering movement is required, reducing the
number of grip changes, especially in cornering or parking manoeuvres. The
steering in the new Leon Cupra works with a progressive ratio through
variable toothing on the rack.
The ESP handling system has been further developed specifically for the new
Leon ST Cupra and enables a very sporty driving style with full retention
of safety functionality. For extremely dynamic use, such as on a race
track, it can also be deactivated in two stages - the first stage
deactivates the traction control and puts the ESP into sport mode,
permitting greater yaw angles. The second stage deactivates the ESP
The Design - emotional and powerful
Emotional design is a great strength of the Leon family. For the new Cupra,
this has been developed one step further. The stretched silhouette of the
ST estate version fits perfectly to the big, distinctive wheels. The new
front end with its large air intakes and full-LED headlamps ensures a
powerful look, as do the rear skirt with its diffuser effect and the two
oval end pipes. The alloy wheels are exclusive to the Cupra, while the red
brake callipers and tinted side and rear windshields underscore its
The focus of the interior is on the Cupra sports steering wheel in its own
unique design complete with shifting paddles for the optional DSG
transmission, as well as the top sports seats in black Alcantara finished
with white stitching. Black full-leather upholstery, likewise with white
stitching, is also available. For extreme lateral grip, there are optional
bucket seats. The pedals and entry sills are made from aluminium.
The ST Cupra 280 is visually differentiated by its unique 19-inch wheels
with a titanium paint finish, the Aerodynamic Pack with the spoiler on the
rear roof edge, Cupra lettering on the brake callipers and black exterior
mirror housings. The trim elements in the cockpit of this top sporty
variant are a deep glossy black or, alternatively, classic chrome.
Nissan R35 GT-R in car footage Knockhill trackday wet weather Video 1
Video 1 of 2
A video captured from inside my Nissan R35 GT-R at a very wet and
miserable Knockhill trackday in November 2009, one of the Track Scotland
The Nissan GTR is running 575 BHP and was on Dunlop SP 600 Summer tyres
with zero grip and the following mods:

Sadly what you don't get to see is the car sliding off the kirbs and the
handfulls of opposite lock having to be applied on a regular basis to keep
it pointing the right way.
If you listen carefully you will hear the back end spinning up at 120 mph+
going over the crest of the hill on the straight and hopefully the video
will show the amount of times the back end was breaking loose due to lack
Roll on the dry weather and some decent rubber.
