Really? cool! :)
Nice to have all this positive feedback.

Too bad about your tracks though, up here it seems like it's heading the other way. Tracks are being repaved and new garages are put up and so on. Very nice, although the fees are going up too. :?

Hey Mats,

..when thay are finished , can you send the team around my place? We need some new paving and patches on the fences to keep the kangaroos out. Not because they get in the way it's because the bastards usually overtake you down the main straight. It's embarrassing you know..even Quantas puts them at the tail end just so they can stay ahead by a nose.. :D

Raced yesterday at Kinnekulle.
My tires decided to commit suicide after two stints so my qualification times were absolute crap. :x
These tires were new two trackdays before this one, last year the same brand/size tires went the whole year without any problems what so ever. :evil:

This is race one, pretty much an error free drive up through the field had som e problems to overtake Mats Forsséns 24v GTV6 but after that it was a suprisingly smooth drive. I'm quite happy as I pass the line in second place as you can see. :)

Link to Google Video

Edit: oh yeah, had another camera in the car this time, rearwards. Have edited it in to act like a huge rear view mirror.
Feel free to comment.

Excellent video Mats!!! I'm surprised how the other drivers didn't drive a consistent line, specially on a curve they seem to take it a bit open and give their position easely, in any case, congratulations on the second place, awesome piece of driving too! :D Keep them coming!

Yikes, in race 2 it almost seemed like the 75 planned for you to drop one more position. Bad luck on that one.

On the final section of the last lap. You had to brake for the 75, I think he understeered or something, then the GTV passed you on the final stretch.

Do you have the high quality version for download?

heh, I almost understeered into him and had to brake, he just tried to make the turn...
I'll snap a pic of the tires for you, it will then be crystal clear.

The current version is 450Mb :roll:
I'm working on it, needs to be smaller.

Wow great race mats, pretty close, tell me, those Giulias were GTA's or something? and that 75?? he seemed to have his chasis a bit f up....
I could also see the difference between the first and second race, guess those tires make a huge difference... :?
