    Default Lakeside happy laps with the VW guys

    I went to Lakeside Raceway on the weekend with the guys from VW Watercooled. Breakfast and half an hour of track time cost a total of $20.00 I got about 15 - 20 laps in and had a ball!

    Here are some pics of the cars involved and a couple of videos that show me getting slaughtered by the top end golfs.

    Damn cheap track time - jealous.

    Dont worry those golfs will smash most things on the track that cost much more.

    Why clio so quick? seemed to have extra power. they otherwise are just made more the track.

    love the old orange golf, I had one like that.

    Lakeside also have a Test Session. $120.00 plus $20.00 for a licence for the day ($50.00 for the year). This gives you 3 hours of track time. No timing, no racing just general open track.

    Thats my next visit. Wouldn't mind going halves with a freind and spending the morning at that one sharing the car.

    I imagine that they were told not to pass near corners as a rule.

    I don't remember there anyone actually forbidding overtaking in the corners. I only did it when people were OFF line, as I took it as an invitation that they were letting me through. I was told off by a few of the members (ironically driving the Golf R's - perhaps they were unhappy they weren't a huge amount quicker in a straight line then a french hatchback ) for driving too quickly.

    My Clio is stock performance-wise besides springs, pads and exhaust. Probably has ~150hp - 155hp at the wheels.

    Here is a longer video. Things get faster at around 10 mins in (where the old video cut off)
