    I love the driving footage.

    I've only been to sandown and rob roy. That looks great with some scary high speed renault corners.

    The fastest i had my R12 was 142kph before hard braking at sandown. Likewise a little skittish under heavy breaking.

    To be cornering at 140 kph in an R12 takes very big balls.

    140 Kph corners in this this were easy.

    Ian that turn 1 is ok. The surface is pretty smooth (now) and it keeps a constant radius more or less. I.e when you line it up correctly there isn't a great deal of steering angle, nor bumps to upset it. Having said that I'm fighting back laughs like an idiot each time it goes around it. It is a little uncanny If I stop and think about the pile of thin panels that protect me. Nor do I want to remind myself that the floor was welded up a few months ago..

    Ah it's all fun isn't it

    More info required from that 12 above please. It looks... purposeful
