Here is a video of the Claude Botti and Mick AArons show yesterday at Winton.  Apologies for the sound quality, but at least I had the camera pointing in the right direction!!

And finally, I was fortunate enough to be able to record both the video and data of my fastest lap yesterday without messing either of them up....

Good fun - 1.37.9 Jim.  At 11.30 in the morning.  Did you go home after the next run?  I can't see any more of your times that's all.

Thanks

I was just about to get organised to put my car on the market, until I watched these videos.  Now I'm not so sure.   :-\

I am sorry Marcus, I stuffed that part of the video up, and after I came off the track at the top of the straight and you whizzed by, i wasn't able to catch up enough to get a decent pic..

but... I did get some great video of Alister's 911 !! Almost running into it in the process...Alister, my tires had pretty much had it before the start of the event, and I could not stop the car from sliding into the corners, as the grip level was getting worse and worse, so by 11:30 the tires were mostly like this....(see pic) and the front suspension was having an 'issue' (see pic.. so it was clearly time to go home..

John

The value of the fun you will have outweighs the value of your 75 many folds.

So just prepare it for the track and have loads of fun like the rest of us.

Thanks Jim - appreciate you taking and posting that footage.  Nice shot of the bush trying to break loose - and yes, I'd be inclined to call it a day with tyres doing that!  Good day though, nice weather and some good track time.

I'd come up in the morning via Kinglake and Yea, leaving at 5.30am.  No traffic to speak of and a really nice run; I hadnít done that run for many years and it was just as I remembered it.  So I headed back that way as well.  Still a nice drive but plenty of traffic in the middle afternoon so not so much fun but definitely more pleasant than the Hume.

Clip following Brendan Beavis from the MX5 club. WE always end up with about the same times. In this one i finally get past Brendan when he has to pull over to the side of the road to let his tyres " catch their breath" again

I hope the scrutineers don't watch the forum Gully, they'll be checking that interior mirror of yours next time...

Also, why aren't your videos available in 720p, that camera can shoot in 720 can't it?

Sheldon, i leave it loose so it forces me to  keep checking it (and whats coming up behind). Also keeps you awake going up the back straight at Sandown.

Your right about the videos i think  i forget to push that HD button when up loading. Might have another go if i have time.

Here is another contribution.  Nothing too exciting, but just chasing the Botti guys in Alfa 75 with Alfetta GT 1.8.

Apologies for the shaky vision and poor sound, first Youtube posting and first time setting up camera.

Sorry to hear that Jimmy.  You're a good driver, hope to see you out again soon.  Pretty funny video though  :D

In good news, I found an engine for you... http://cgi.ebay.com.au/BMW-E34-M5-S38-Complete-Engine-Gearbox-/270251969000?pt=AU_Car_Parts_Accessories

Failing that, stick your Falcon engine in the BMW!!

Mic, got to follow you for a lap and then...cutting grass!

Very fast Jim. How does the ABS handle the balding tyres? Seemed, it locked up a front at one stage?

Congratulations Gully, Is that your first MX-5?

Bit shakey Neil, I like how you can see the gauges though.

Oh Noooo Jimmy, that must mean its time to buy an Alfa, I've got a cheap Sprint, only driven 'Sundays'.

Had a great day, cant wait for the next one.

Hey there all,

Back on topic.

Check this in car video out by our MX5 mate, Randy, I particularly like the moment at 0:27sec of the black Alfasud, I think it is Sue but let it be Ray.  It is more fun that way.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtTTASSpha4

Enjoy.

He's going the WRONG WAY - its gotta be Ray!! Its really the best video I have seen of the day yet (though the music is a bit iffy..) Neil.. Can we get a proper HD version posted instead!! I want to see the look on Rays face when he is trying to go around the cows tits backwards...
Title: Re: In Car Footage from Winton Aug 2010
Post by: Neil Choi on August 16, 2010, 07:13:00 PM
Wrong way??? Depends, Jim, in that direction it is being driven by the correct wheels!!!!

Anyway, I do agree it was Ray, plus Sue killed Ray in times, as usual.

Ray, you really have to go and wine and dine Sue,  take her dancing and show her some of your moves to the following:

Though, I think Ray was in the slow group being passed by Brad, that is more to the truth.

Thanks so much for in car videos, it's great to have on track evidence.

Mick, thanks for posting the awesome Vid, that worked out grouse! Sorry about the smoke though, I didn't know the old sprint was that bad. That was heaps of fun.

Nice video from the MX-5 Neil, heaps of action and I like the Metallica, rock on! My camera was not recording for this run and I wasn't happy because is was action packed, cars everywhere, perfect practice for the 6 Hr.
Susan woke me up by spinning, I was looking for the inside line passed the pulsar, not on!!
A glass or two of chardie is what you should be drinking Ray. I can help you with that...

Always exciting passing a Brera, good stuff Neil, or should I say Damon.

By the way Ray, which ship are you talking about? I know you like to cruise...but I got on the fast one.
