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.
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:
GTC Full Titanium 90mm Race Exhaust
system and Y Pipe
80mm Catless downpipes
Cobb Custom Tune
Whiteline suspension tweeks Set up for the dry ;)
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.
Thanks to Andy for the video
Seat Ibiza Cupra
TAKING to a race track might not be the best way of judging a new
hatchback's all-round ability.
But with 178bhp and all the technical knowhow of the Volkswagen-Audi Group
behind it, an early on-track appraisal of SEAT's upcoming Ibiza Cupra—due
in showrooms in October—was hard to resist.
Upon my arrival at the Bedford Autodrome, near Milton Keynes, one SEAT
employee wasted no time in describing the upcoming Cupra as a
"technological tour de force," very French for such a proud Spanish
manufacturer (albeit with serious dose of Germanic influence nowadays), but
setting the scene nonetheless.
Among the systems marking the Cupra out as an up-to-date interpretation of
the hot hatch breed are: VAG's award-winning turbocharged and supercharged 1.4-litre engine; a
seven-speed DSG sequential paddle-shift gearbox; and XDS, a
differential-mimicking system working in tandem with the car's stability
The only thing more advanced than the Cupras electronics is the maze of
satellite-based VBOX equipment and cameras installed inside the car to
record everything from speeds, to lap times and G-loadings when I take to
the track. Take a look at the attached footage to see how I went on...
The yellow Cupra waiting in the Autodrome's paddock area stands well,
sitting 10mm lower than the Ibiza Sport and 5mm lower than the cooking hot
Ibiza FR, on 17 inch alloy wheels.
Available only in SC (three-door) guise, the Cupra features dramatically
revised bumpers with broader, deeper skirts and air intakes at the front
and a large centre-exit Exhaust,
bringing it in-line with the Leon Cupra, at the rear.

SMRC 2014 Scottish Fiesta XR2s - Knockhill Round 5 - Josh Orr
First race of the day. After a good qualifying in the wet, managed to get
myself 7th on the grid, 3rd in class.
The race was dry and unfortunately the recurring issue of fuel starvation
through the corners came back to haunt me...
Ending up going backwards and having a good battle with the cars at the end
of the field...
