Just thought I’d report on the FPV Drive day I took part in today.
What a great day, its amazing what these cars can do "when driven by Professional".
The Morning sessions are really good; they show you little things that you can do to improve your driving that most people don't think about. It’s also a lot of fun.
The Afternoon session is where the fun really begins. for those that don't know, you split into 2 groups, first we did the Motorkhana which is a circuit set up with witches hats that you fang around in the quickest time you can.
1st with traction control on
Then with it off and third time its your choose, who ever gets the combined best times gets a prize from FPV.
Then you go off to the Track for some laps.
By this stage I was starting to feel a little queeze from all the burnouts and the smell of tyre smoke. The sun didn’t help. (A bit of a softy here
Anyway so after fanging around the track 3-4 times I felt a bit sick so I pulled off and took a breather.
Then one of the Instructors was free "Greg Ritter" so I asked him to take me around the track. He knew I wasn't 100% so he through the car around this track that hard that I didn’t know if should laugh or throw up!
SO I DID BOTH!!
Just as we pulled up into the pits with me pissing my self laughing from the excitement, I had to ask him to pull over while I bought up the Lovely lunch that was provided!
Even with me throwing up it would still rate as the most fun I have had in a hell of a long time!
Seeing 22 Gt/GTP/Pursuits lined up was sweet as well.
