Queensland Raceway - Thursday 31 January 2013

Post by Prime » Sun Jan 06, 2013 5:28 pm

Happy New Year Qld RX8 club members,

Just thought I would let you guys know that I am participating in a Time Attack event at Queensland Raceway on Thursday 31 January 2013 (the morning session). It will be good practice for the Track Day at Lakeside on Saturday 16 February 2013.

I am aware Thursday is a work day, but once again if anybody is also interested in attending, then contact Time Attack on: http://www.timeattack.com.au/content/view/1/32/

Regards, Nigel

Sounds good Tony. I mean it is the month of your birthday after all. :)

Bruce (who drove a blue WRX at our last two RX8 track days) is also intending to drive. Finally, my brother will be joining me once again.

I may do a week day lakeside in the near future. QR has too many high RPM straights which heats up the engine too much especially on hot summer days.

While at Lakeside the car barely raised a sweat....well after my granny driving at the last track day.

No worries Tony. I bet your excited.

Looks like there will be three of us at this stage (including my mate Bruce), which is the same number who attended the mid week session at QR in August last year.

I am a little disappointed, I wanted to see how it goes on a fairly flat track (compared to the ultra cambered corners of lakeside)

RX8 is better suited to lakeside. QR is good for high powered cars
