Nice to hear about the track plans. I've been going to the track for years and I've been around race cars a lot.

On that I do have some pointers. Try to keep both hands on the wheel for most of the time. You'll get more control and if you keep them correctly(15 to and 15 over) you'll eliminate wheel shuffling and that'll be a lot smoother. Try to be smooth since that'll be faster, don't make sudden jerky movements. Since these cars don't have a lot of power keeping up speed is vital. Good tires and brakes are a must, sometimes you'll even surprise the supposedly fast cars.

The next thing ofc. will be heel-toe, left foot braking and so on.
Go get 'em! :)

Also, I might suggest a program for a smart phone or laptop called "RaceChrono" for cheap lap timing.

Thanks for the pointers, I'm only doing the trackdays for fun and as the car is my daily at the moment, I couldnt be pushing it too hard.... Once my EK hatch is finished, that will be my daily so I can push the 4G abit more. :thumbright:
