A V6 with stock brakes with maybe race pads won't be out braking a 4-cyl car.

That's why I said it looked like Matfo's car has a stock-ish setup, which means, when they approach a corner, the 4-cyl guys will blow right by. Needs bigger brakes, so maybe, just maybe can outbrake the 4-cyl cars.

A bit off topic... but the expressions on the face off the co-driver are priceless

I’m glad to see that I have gotten so many comments of the videos and my driving, cheers to you all! :D

kevin: This was the long circuit and the 24v pulled nicely on the long straight. :twisted:
However many years ago the track was much longer when it continued straight forward downhill instead of the hairpin at the end of the lap.

Alfettish is right, the extra mirror is just for getting a video shot backwards as Mats also explained. Unfortenatly I wasn’t so good at aligning it so you don’t see so much in it. I also think that my aluminium trunk cover made reflections in the rear window which made it even worse.

Mats: I don’t know if I can make it to the gathering unfortenatly, but I’m also looking forward to the complete video, do you think you’ll have it finished by then? :)

Zamani: Actually I have Tar-Ox 6pot calipers with 290 mm vented discs in the front and vented discs with original calipers (w. SZ-distance) at the rear. And of course race pads. It's great breaks that never fades.
I think that the primary lack of braking performance is down to the fact that I’m too unexperienced as a driver. :oops: This was only my 13th and 14th races ever so I have a lot to learn yet. I think I really need to be consistent with the braking points and more "aggressive" in race situations.
Then of course my car (with me inside) weighs at least 250kg more then Mats does for instance. Due to classification, I'm just able to take off about 20kg and that is the goal before this years season. However an even better thing would be to get rid off the same amount on myself but that is harder challenge... :wink:

That's the plan! First official screening at the driver gathering in two weeks.
You have done 14 races? :shock: Or do you mean track days in total?

I mean races, we have had 8 races each of the two seasons since I joined and I missed the two first races last year = 14 in total, no more and no less :wink:

During the last race of the season in the Swedish Alfa Romeo Racing series (Club Alfa Romeo Challenge) we had 11 cameras placed in different cars and at certain locations around the circuit, I have now finished editing those videos together into a nice little film with 40 minutes of running time. It turned out rather nice I think.
Have a look and tell me what you think

Good video mats.
What's the deal with the noise coming out of the silver GTV? Is it the gearbox or something else?
