It could do with a bit more oomph on the corners, however! Great video!

Nice video.  I was thinking how quick your car is, and then Jim came past....

You look very fast through the kink and down to Dandedong Rd corner.  Obviously jumping that kerb doesn't upset the car too much then?  Might have to try it.
Is yours a standard 3 litre?

PS, sent you a PM the other day Chode, did you get it?

Mick,

Nothing to dodgy about that overtake , Great video. Sheldon, Mick's  right about straight lining it down through Dandenong Rd ( got to be worth 1/2 a sec or so). I watched then followed Vin Sharp doing that the lap before . I would of been happy sitting behind him watching and learning a bit more. That was until Vin thought he could go around turn 1 without braking!!!! ( you see him collecting himself and coming back on to the track at the start of your clip).


Cheers

That'd be a driver thing wouldn't it Jim? ;)

.. for sure, but I am planning on a cure via technology!

Sweet sounding GTV6 you've got there Mick.  Nice videos too.  I must admit it looked like your bonnet wasn't secured on the Sandown video but perhaps that was intentional.  Cheers Dave

Awesome Mick. Watched it 3 times in a row. Also got a good laugh at what looked suspiciously like Jimmy going after some rally action on the outside grass line there.

Trent your probably right , but the look on Mick's face at about the 49 sec mark is great. Jim's Turbo 155 goes past at mack 1. Mick has a cursory glance at the instrumentation just to make sure 2 spark plugs haven't just fallen out

If you have watched all of Mick, Evan & Jim video's at least 10 times and still looking for more to get those lines right have a look at the video library on the Porsche 944 Challenge website.  Personally i think you would need sponsorship from a panel shop to run in this series

Scoll down to get to the video clips.
