GulfRun 5 @ The Track

One of the best GulfRun’s yet all compressed into a few intense minutes, again my hat goes off to NegativEffect for doing such a great job with this video. The best part for me was watching some of those guys drift, the guy with the ISF took his car to the extreme and that car can really drift. The Z4M did an amazing job on the track as well, some interesting surprises there. I really had fun at the autocross but I started drifting instead of trying to get a good time. So much done in an intense few days, I can’t wait for the next one but I need to improve my driving skills to get better on the track. The Vimeo version is the same but in better quality, I tend to like Vimeo more because of the quality but here is both.

Track Days

YasMarine

After GulfRun I get the urge to go on the track again and improve my driving capabilities, I want to have more time on the track and keep cutting my lap times. Its been a while before that since I have been to the track, before GulfRun it has been over a year since I have been to the track but I plan on going more often these days. During track days you get to meet people, get more familiar with your car, some times its an aggressive crowd but your never sure of all the other drivers but it helps sharpen your skills. Yas Marine is one track I really want to try, but I keep noticing that there is almost very little run off unlike BIC, but I still want to try it from the look of the track and how its been put together. Right now there is one open track day for Feb 27, and I don’t think I can make it since my Beemer is in the shop getting fixed up from my mishap in GulfRun but luckily it was only cosmetic, still I really want to go to that track as soon as possible.

Lamborghini Academy

They have opened up a new track training program and this one does seems to be interesting. For only 3900 Euros you get two days Track Training, One Day Theory, and One Day Track Day with the LP-560-4. The track car is a beast of a machine, and you have an instructor with you in the car, teaching you what to do to get the most out of your car.

The more interesting part of this academy is the Lamborghini Winter Track training which is done in the snow. This is the first time to see something like that, but I wouldn’t mind trying it out.
