    Well this is hard work ...Need lots of practice on this one if I want to drive the Aston :rolleyes:
    the Jaguar is maybe the easiest to drive, then the Ferrari. But it's hard work taming the Aston (also found a much higher wheel lock is working better for me) 800 deg and about 30 on the lock .. Don't think ill be doing much drifting in the DBR2 (vintage tyres) but the other 2 slide real nice with the special tyres..:thumbsup:
    But first iv'e got to get used to the Sciroccccco (cant even spell or say it correctly yet) for Tuesday..Its going to be one hell of a week and im looking forward to it...:D

    Ive spent some time on Knut's test track taking a wide line and trying to drift in these beast's and its great fun..
    :D just use the throttle(nice and gentle) not much steer action once it start to drift (you have to start somewhere and it does take time lots of time..)

    Exactly. If you work the steering too much, it's very easy to over-correct and having the car snap the other way or simply ending the slide too early. I usually give the steering a good jab on turn-in with light braking and no throtttle, then as the rear steps out I get on the throttle, then keep the steering pretty much straight or a little opposite lock and just work the throttle to keep it drifting at the right angle.

    I will certainly try to get there, but can't confirm 100% just yet.

    If I do make it, I will most definitely be giving the Jag another go in at least one race.
     
  18. One more for the QLTIM lounge, will confirm on wednesday! (Thinking of Jag and DBR)

    Oh boy, lets see if I can keep these old things on the track, they look expensive.

    Nice drifting there Knutters!!
