Had a blast at Eastern Creek today!!

Myself and a couple of mates did a track day today and had a blast. We had the two GT-P's a twin turbo Porsche 4wd and a GT3 Porsche.The GT3 was a little out of our league as its full race spec and the driver races carrera cup so had no chance there but let me tell you the twin turbo didnt do it to convincingly for the money its worth.Mind you we have done a lot of development on Engine, Suspension and added brake ducting to the front of the GT-P's which has tranformed this into what it should be.One change i will be doing is upgrading the coilovers to 1000lbs on the front.
Also every holden out there was trying to catch us but not one got close!
A couple of stock GT's came after lunch and looked to have a good time as well.

Yeh I'd also be interested in lap times, I've done many laps of the Creek with many different vehicles.
