Our main reason of visiting the track was to acquire better knowledge of the car and tyres, and do as many laps as i could. It was a cloudy day with 50-50 chance of rain. we took the decision to go on track and have fun.
After the briefing the fun started! Along with our photographer and friend Dimitris we went out on track for a test drive. Coming back on pits we did some changes on the tyres.
On the next session i did two slow laps in order to remember the track and i started to push. I did a change on the brakes and after the session i managed to do the same time as the previous track day. After the session i checked the tyres and they weren't hot enough. I also tuned a bit the brake balance in order to improve the car's balance.
On the next session i drove alone. The car was completely different! The balance was changed, the feeling of the weight of the car was different too. I tried to push after the first 2 laps but there was a mechanical issue with the clutch that left mou on the side of the track.
It was the first bad moment and it happened when i started to building my momentum and rythm. My best time on that session before the mechanical failure was 1:11'500.
I learnt many things from this experience on track. I learnt the car behaviour better and improved some turns of the track. Next stop the 4rth ΗTTC 2018 - 2019 track race.
Till next time check some photoes of the track day and a small video of our preparations.
