Caterham onboard, Brands Hatch GP, May 2012
Back to Brands Hatch this year with the Lotus 7 Club and it was a pretty
damp and slippery day apart from this mostly dry session. I had some great
laps chasing some of the faster
cars through the traffic, including the black R300 (car 33) of James
Sharrock. I've tried to edit this together to show some of the best bits
although I'll admit I'm not entirely happy with it - but it's been sat on
my hard drive for far too long, so...
This was the first track outing for the car this year after another winter
of upgrades. All is well but it needs corner weighting still (brakes are a
bit interesting). Several ham-fisted gear changes, missed apexes and power
slides including a lucky escape at Paddock Hill near the end. Some
ridiculous speed differentials between cars at times, and the lack of brake
lights on James' car nearly caught me out once.
Apologies for the long video, I had to cut a lot out to get it down to 10
minutes. Also I had a problem with my new camera and its mic, so what you
can hear is from the rear facing ContourHD camera. Hopefully it's still
reasonably enjoyable though :)

McLaren MP4-12C vs Honda Civic BTCC racer vs Honda Fireblade British Superbike
We know the McLaren 12C is other-worldly fast. But how does it compare
against a Honda Civic British Touring Car Championship racer and a British
Superbike Championship-winning Honda Fireblade?

We took a McLaren 12C to Rockingham Motor Speedway to face its toughest
challenge yet. Could it outpace a Honda Civic BTCC racer driven by former
champion Gordon Shedden and the pairing of 2013 British Superbike champion
Alex Lowes and his Samsung Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade? Which would set the
fastest lap? Would the Civic's superior grip make up for the power deficit?
Would the McLaren be too much to match on the straight? Or would the 'Blade
offer a blend of light weight and high performance impossible to match?
