i'm back and uploading video as we speak
Had an awesome time as always. Tim, Andy and Aidan are absolute fucking animals! seriously
Let me just say with regard to my laps. Not all of them were saved for whatever reason. The lap i really wanted was where i took Tim out. I asked Tim to press a button named "start" which he was miraculously able to do. But i also asked him to press a button at gantry. he pressed a different button. By the time i was able to press a simple button marked "stop" i was (im guessing ) a couple of hundred metres past the gantry and the stopwatch read 9.00 point something so as far as i'm concerned i've done a sub 9 and am actually content with that.
The video i'm uploading is where i chased Aidan. i was behind him at the ticket barrier although he hadn't seen me. A few cars got between us but i chased him. It looks VERY tame on video but i was honestly going as fast i could. I think he missed a gear around adenau somewhere and then let me pass. I carried on driving as hard as i possibly could because hes's now chasing me! Going up the back straight i'm in fifth gear and i go for fourth. It goes in to sixth so i straight away lose momentum, he nearly goes in to the back of me and now because i'm going so slow i have to let the whole world and his dog through before i'm back up to speed.
Anyway, just before the mini karussell he slows down more then i for a yellow flag and once through we have another chase and he has a moment going round the last bend while i can hardly keep my car straight cos i'm pissing myself
Lastly, to give you an idea of speeds, my speedo is partly visible and when it's pointing straight up it's at 80mph. the next numeral is 100.As i say, it's uploading right now....
