VX220 Turbo Here is why Radicals should be banned from Track days
Here is a clear demonstration why Radicals should be banned from Track days
and only allowed on Test Days. The drivers are not up to the job and they
overtake in ridiculous places like the Apex of Graham Hill at Brands. This
guy was obviously a track day first timer but who would let someone so
incapable out in a car like that? A menace to everyone else and a danger to
themselves. Marshals were due a share of criticism too - they wasn't a
single waved blue the whole 2 laps. Later that day the Radical did the same
thing again! If you get cut up by a faster car its because they have been stuck
behind these kinds of fools.
Blyton Park Trackday 3/3/12 - Apex Trackdays - MX-5
Blyton Park with Apex Trackdays - www.apextrackdays.co.uk
Stan and Cap's first time on track and first outing for the Mk1 MX-5 we
were in. Engine is completely standard but it has different shocks, geo
setup, tyres, TR Lane half cage and buckets/harnesses.
Great day out as always - special thanks to the chap who broke our steering
lock at the start of the day. Nope, not joking, I left the keys 120 miles
away so we had to effectively hotwire the car to get it started!

2nd session I did before the gopro ran out of charge. I was struggling to
change from 2nd to 3rd all day, think the syncros are very worn which
slowed me down a fair bit.
