Thanks for organizing a great day Ryan.
I think a lot of fun was had by all.
My new tyres aren't so new anymore.


I will upload the photos soon but I need to find a 4 pin to 6 pin firewire cable to upload the video off my camera.
So that might have to wait till tuesday.

Well, gotta say thats the most fun that I have had in a while, and Tash feels the same

Thanks again Ryan for organising another awesome event, variety of cars made for some great action

I myself will be knocking on Option 1's door come tax time for some sticky kumho's, after a run in Phil's car, it made mine feel so inferior just cause of the tyres, but I indeed did have fun getting the arse to easily oversteer and into drift action

I must admit it was rather cool watching the HSV getting better at holding a slide as the day went on.
By the end of the day he was holding a drift around the whole track
But watching the MX5 just made me want to buy another one.

Apperently at one stage he did six laps drifting in one go. The mx-5 needed better tyres on the track as it kept getting too much understeer.

Dean's MX5 is the third MX5 I have driven on that skidpan and the most uncontrollable one I have driven. We later discussed suspension setups, and came to the conclusion that the settings were also wrong. I don't think it was solely the tyres at fault. although the are regular strret touring tyres. Dean also did say also that he wished he had brought his semi-slick tyres also. So with the Achilles tyres fitted, suspension settings changed, it'll be a weapon on the pan.

Yo, awesome day! I didn't get too many pictures taken, except on the circle work, as I commissioned my girlfriend to get the pictures towards end of day - I just couldn't get out of my car - too much fun. I'm at work so will upload more over coming days - stay tuned.

Yee-ha!

I'm not surprised, my Mazda2 had great handling, and it was a DY, not even a DE.
