Onboard Birkett 2011 - Malcolm Edeson Toyota MR2 (MK2) Fastest Lap (2:34) & Race Finish

http://www.driver-coaching.com - Onboard with me on the very last lap of the Birkett 6Hr Relay held at Silverstone GP Circuit (Historic Layout). Despite traffic this turned out to be my fastest race lap. Haivng not really driven the car before the race and not having much of an idea of best tyre pressures etc. I found I was running them too high. In my 2nd run I dropped them a good 3-4 psi each end and they were much better. Unfortunately at the start of my 2nd stint I suffered a broken wheel and had to limp back to the pits. Once the wheel had been replace I did 3 more laps, made up 8-10 places and on this the last lap set a best time of 2:34.89 which looking at the results was the best time of any of the regular MR2 Championship cars (although my student and 2011 Championship winner James Cross said he also did a 2:34). This was despite carrying 20ltrs of fuel more than I needed as I had fueled for 1hr as there was the possibility I'd have to run that long. Video is captured on a Video4 setup from Race-Technology.

Onboard 'Lucky Escape' Broken Wheel, Birkett 2011 Session 2, Malcolm Edeson Fast Lap & Race Finish
This is from my 2nd session in the Birkett 6Hr Relay. A lap or two into my stint and I felt a fairly strong vibration from the front of the car. Initially I thought this was pickup (rubber marbles which become attached to the tyre and cause vibration). Then it got worse and I suspected a puncture but didnt feel like one. Then it got even worse and I limped back to the pits. A VERY good job I did as the front offside wheel had cracked clean through 3 of it's 5 spokes. I was very lucky. This is after the front wheel had been chnaged and what remains of my 2nd stint. The marshals were slow releasing us from the pitlane which was a shame as the car was much better with lower tyre pressures and I was flying. In this very short stint I must have got past at least 10 cars and in doing so set the fastest lap of the race. It was actually getting quite dark as the race was delayed owing to a huge crash off the startline. Can't really tell on the video so much as the cameras adjust for the low light. Was a really fun, but very confusing race. We finished 31st :( Feauture on this video you can see the new DASH4 Pro from Race-Technology.

Onboard MR2 Birkett 2011 with Malcolm Edeson - First Session
http://www.driver-coaching.com - Onboard with me as I take to the track in my Toyota MR2 Championship Car kindly loaned to me by one of my students Simon Dowker. I was the last driver in the sequence so the race was already over 2 hours old, in fact owing to the huge startline crash the race was almost 3 hours old. And .. just as I leave the pits .. Safety Car. After 2-3 laps it came in and I was away, the video starts from that point. Video is captured on a Video4 setup from Race-Technology.
