that was me! thanks for the kind words la source - the are feels planted and knows its way round oulton. was going to come and say hello, but spent a lot of time on track and then trying to dodge the rain! will do next time though

really love the 6gt3 - looks awesome on the bbs lm Thumb
can see you really know it well on you videos

and that is awesome driving for very little track time at oulton, in the less than ideal conditions!

just took one video during the day, was luckily just before the rain arrived about 12. was good fun following the strasse car - had so much grip. just the last few laps which were the clearest. car was going well all day, even in the wet felt predictable.

unfortunately the clutch went on the way home - to be fair had been on its way out for last couple of trackdays - but tried to squeeze one more out of it for the RS day

was a great day all round though, met more nice folks and saw some familiar faces too Very Happy


Great driving pal. I came across you on track once and you flew past like I was standing still.

Didn’t manage to speak to you but my three non-driving friends did. (I parked next to yours most of the day - red 996.2 GT3)

Thumb


thanks mate Very Happy was going to come and say hello as spent lot of the day parked beside you - but day went so quickly and just didnt get the chance

will do next time though Smile

Apologies I didn’t get to say hello to as many 911uk lads as I’d hoped, particularly the ones I chat to most in the 996 section.
I met Chris Infra and Alex (thanks for the turnbuckles!) but would have liked to say hi to more. The day was a bit of blur to be honest.

Good day spoiled by the weather but we got off lightly for the rest of the weekend around Wales and particulary yesterday at Anglesey, so can’t complain.


Nice to meet you Marky, I still need to do Anglesey at some point soon, I will be looking for a suitable day ASAP.

I have a couple of video's, one onboard on the only dry session and just getting my eye in so no hot laps done but it does show some of the other cars I got overtaken by Embarassed

And some of the wet weather lovers towards the end of the day, they had the track to themselves from around 4pm, worship

Nice to get some clear laps in, even if it was a bit cold and slippy.

Great day out. Good to meet and catch up with so many. thumbsup


nice lap mate Thumb car looks well set up and quick, good pedaling! the damp patches and cool temps definitely focus the mind! difficult to know what to expect barreling into some of the corners, especially at druids - where the consequences are not worth thinking about if it all goes wrong!

Thanks. Not as quick as your laps, but I'm working on it. Very Happy

On one lap, I did have a car go off in front of me in Druids and nearly hit the barrier - just kept it off at the end of the gravel on the outside of the corner - then cut back onto the track in front of me. I had plenty of time to react, but it did highlight to me that Druids was perhaps not the place to take any chances.

LaSource flew past at 0:57

Not been receiving alerts for this thread 🤷‍♂️ so I was blissfully unaware of the Bobbie-bothering 👮🏻‍♂️😂

Shame that work got in the way as I was hoping for a couple of pax laps, so I’ll have to try again next year...

It was fab seeing so many lovely porks (and a couple of interlopers) there 👍

Tidy job there. Not the easiest of conditions to learn Oulton really, although at least in terms of the other drivers you had very little to worry about, as it was very polite and well behaved. Just it was very slippy in places!

Yes, very courteous driving from the quicker drivers.

2:09/10 with passenger was my best on the day. Lose the passenger may gain a couple seconds, so still need to improve vastly to find that extra 7s for sub-2 mins.

I don’t chase time of course, just an useful indicator.

Great circuit!

Seems a pity to miss out the extra section of track. I presume it just needs an extra marshall or two - its not as if they could use that but of track for something else (like running a Silly International and National circuit at the same time)

Nice driving anyway Thumb

So what pace do you think the 997 sets on a full circuit? Wink

One has to be careful though at Oulton - any mistake is going to be painful. With all the grass, once off the circuit I think a car will not stop until it meets a barrier!

Of all the videos I've watched of RS Day laps in the last 4 years, you've got the best assessment of the quickest way to get a car around a lap in my opinion.worship
Really enjoyed that video. I'm assuming the orange light is TC off, which makes your laps even better. Turn 2 and Druids are spot on in my book. Bravo Thumb
Next year I'll be on circuit by hook or by crook.

Senoj has definitely nailed Druids, perfect line and carries good speed. Great driving!

They were resurfacing Shell oils hence the reduced lay out.

Very kind FZP. Yes, TC & PSM off, it was dry. 1.57’s is decent/good for 997 I think on GP layout. Summer on trofeo’s maybe dip into 55’s, never have, would love to do OP in the warm sun. I agree that little 6” strip of white paint between the track and the grass offers no protection Floor

The damp-wet conditions last week were tricky, especially for people learning the circuit.

As La Source says, with a very narrow dry line and not much run off, it didn't really encourage you to push. I ran with TC off early, but didn't trust myself without.

A few people, myself included, were leaving a lot on the table in various places, like short-shifting over Clay Hill to avoid a wheelspin-into-tankslapper moment.
