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.

MR2 Brands Hatch 2010 - Best Race Ever
Alex is starting on pole for the final race of the 2010 Mk1 MR2 Racing series, in what turns out to be the most exciting race yet with crashes, spins and slides on the wet Brands Hatch Indy circuit. To win the 'Driver of the Year' title, Alex needs to finish somewhere in the top 15 drivers. He gets a poor start and drops down to third place, but watch as things go from bad to worse at the second corner. Alex manages to keep it out of the gravel at Druids but has to wait for the whole field to pass before he finally rejoins in 30th place. He is then on a mission to make his way up the field as quickly as possible. As if things could then get any worse, 3 laps in exiting Druids a car in front spins and collects another one, blocking the track and leaving Alex with pretty much no escape. Thankfully, the MR2 still seems fine to drive, so Alex pushes on making up for lost time and places. In the end, after 15 laps, he manages to make up a total of 26 places, finishing 4th overall, meaning he had done more than enough to take the title. The best race yet!
