Trax Silverstone New GP 2010 MGBV8 trying to stay with Evo Race cars
My first time on the New GP circuit. I should have spent time learning the lines but got cought up in the excitement. Fantastic track, cant wait to go back and learn the lines properly. My MGB GT V8 did well to nearly keep with some very fast cars.
10:20 Session @ Trax 2012 Silverstone - Track prep'd Evo
My first time out around Silverstone's full GP circuit in my Track Prep'd
Evo IV running in low Boost mode
(400bhp) It is an amazing circuit with lots to learn, few issues with
track day etiquette by some drivers but still great fun, even got told off
by the Mrs for using the Anti-Lag on the drive back to the stand at the end
of the vid lol :-)
MGB V8 @ Silverstone arena Trackday with Lotus on track (passenger comments)
For those not familiar with trackdays, overtaking is only on the straights
and by consent and on the left side. Took a passenger for a session and his
comments are enthusiastic and quite funny (hope you enjoyed the ride Dave).
Due to recent rear suspension changes the cars handling is much improved
with less oversteer.
Collier Cup at Watkins Glen 2010
This video is from the 4th place finisher in the 2010 Collier Cup race at
Watkins Glen 2010. A faltering engine and some poor decision making set me
back as far as 7th. I had a good time anyway and set the 2nd fastest time
of the race behind only the MGB GT V8 that passes me on lap 2.
MGB-GT first drive.mpg
My first drive of my MGB-GT race car. It felt great and fast with
predictable handling and instant throttle response-can't wait to drive it
on a real track instead of an indoor kart track.
330bhp MGB V8 v 540bhp Evo @ Silverstone Trax 2012.f4v
330bhp MGB V8, (980kg) Having fun with a very fast 540bhp (1200kg) evo.
First test of my new rear wing and front splitter. Very Positive results.
Fast turn oversteer has been virtually eliminated while top speed is hardly
affected. I can carry more speed in the turns without the back end stepping
The evo has a lot more straight line speed so was impressed with my little
Oh and Gavin was slowing me down in the passenger seat LoL.
Impressed with overtaking the Noble, that thing should fly.
I could have dived down the inside of the little Vauxhall but decided to
just let him know I was there by showing a front wheel, so was dissapointed
when he blocked me down the straight.
I am building my first race car, a 1967 MGB-GT with a Jaguar V12 and am
hoping to be competitive in SCCA's EMod class. The class allows any engine
available in a car in the US to be put in any body that was available in
the US. In this video, I start the engine for the first time.
