We had a Reciant track day over here in Christchurch, New Zealand. It was organised by one of the subaru clubs, and they were nice enough to open it to the Honda club as well to make up numbers. So i decided id go along for a try at it, having never been on the track before, nor having had the car going for a track day either.

Weather was absolutly crap for the day, which made things rather interesting to say the least, wheel spin at 150km/h and aquaplaning were just some of the things i had to contend with.

My car went really well, and i didnt end up loosing brakes. I ended up out braking pretty much everything out there on my stock disc (F/R) and EBC green stuff pads. Corners i was a lot faster than most of the other cars and i only struggled down the straits.

heres a map of the circuit:
Grand Prix Circuit - 3.33km: lap record 1-15-810 Scott Dixon


I ended up with the 8th fastest lap of the day, and below is a list of most of the cars times.

Guh, jeez, don't think I could race in that weather on my R compounds.



They say that the tread on these has "aqua tusks" but I still wouldn't race on them if it was raining and wet like that. I'm too big of a wuss to do it.

I'm wasn't saying it can't be done, it's perfectly plausible to race on R compounds in the rain, I'm just a big scaredy cat.
