Great day fellas - well run and plenty of track time, even with the little delay...  hats off to all the organisers and volunteer flaggies.

Also - WD to all competitors - last year's quickest times;

That 1:04 was set on slicks too by the way.....

To this years times, we even had a 1:04 in street tyres.   Everyone went way quicker in reasonably similar conditions i would have thought - tyres may have played a part in a couple of those :cool:

Cheers, helps contextualize the times. My eyebrows were raised looking at the times if a AD08R was considered 'semi slick' which sometimes it does get categorized as!

Yeah plenty of retards call them along with, Achillies 123s, westlakes etc semi's which they are not.

 

Fast times on both tyres that's for sure.

basiclly I think the cut off is a 180 and up wear rating is street, below 180 is semi. 

 

that said when that was deemed the cut off for a bunch of classes in USA, a few manufactuers re classified their tires from 120-140 to a new 180....

we are looking at you Yokohama and Hankook.....so as per usual it is not cheating till your caught

It's not about how fast you go but how much fun you have. Great to see you enjoying such a brilliant car at the track rather than sitting in the car park like most owners!

For sure! It's definitely going to take a few track days to get the hang of her. Such a different beast than on the streets. Had an absolute blast though!

To be fair, that track doesn't really suit the Big heavy R35.

Cracking day, zero issues and PB on street tyres before semis was a bonus.

Just the right number of cars, count me in for the next one.

Broadford is super complex, I feel that I'm not even close to fully understanding how to get around there quick.
