Hi VXers,

 

Couple of recent vids from Cadwell Park this weekend, was pushing on in the wet on a very greasy track.

 

Both videos end with a trip on the grass towards the tyre barrier at Park corner :ninja:  but other than that a great day!

 

4 Channel ABS definitely had a proper work out

Not sure as I have never tried one! For me the standard ratio is perfect though.

Thanks Nev maybe we will get you out one day to properly push your limits :P

 

Doesn't matter how wide your tyres are... if you're on semi slicks in the wet and making progress if you touch the dry line you're sideways its like ice. What you need is wets but then that would be no fun at all!

Lovely, enjoyed that!  I did two races there in 1968 and amazingly it hasn't changed a bit, just tyres and barriers instead of stone walls by the farm.  Nice circuit!

Small clip to show an aquaplane going up the hill at park straight on my first session, amazing how careful you need to be on semi slicks especially now I'm going faster with the SC!!

 

Started lifting there afterwards looks small on camera but felt pretty big at the time. :o
