Event update chaps.......

Today we had a day of free testing, and by the looks of things it's going to be a battle of the bravest through the bowl section for sure!!!!

The Parow guys were on the money right off the bat as expected in all the classes, some said the grip was a bit off, but as the day wore on and the racing line was cleaned up and there was some rubber laid down the grip was fantastic!!!

The Tokai guys having run an event or two in the past at this track weren't far off, a bit of setup fiddling and it was game on!!

The PE guys having never run on a banked track took a while to find a rythym getting used to different apex lines to best enter the next banked corner. As the day progressed and the grip got better so did their driving and they were soon just off the pace of the locals. A few setup changes and some opting for foams in the faster classes saw their times get even better with some spectacular dices with the locals.

Mention must be made that there were some spectacular crashes too!!! Not only from the visitors but the locals too. But the best of the day was Raymond giving his rwd 12th some stick down the main straight and getting it airborne about halfway down the straight flying straight into the pits nearly taking Cassiem's head with it.

All in all a great days practice was had by all in attendance.
Tomorrow there will be some timed practice runs in the morning for the guys to have a last setup run to check their cars before the event gets under way at 1pm.

See you all tomorrow, and for those who aren't there, don't forget you can catch the event live on the UStream.com website under the "trccc test" page. A direct link is posted above.
