enjoyed the track day vid. Nice driving. Very smooth. .. thanks for including the spin at 11:30.. mate.. it really shows how much potential energy is saved up in a tank slapper or a spin on track in a 1M. Man this car can whip you around! What's is amazing is how you can think you have it gathered up and then the car says... nope... and bucks you off like a bronco!


Really enjoyed seeing the track from your vid. I've been playing Real Racing 3 and while I am sure even video doesn't truly show the incredible elevation change at SPA, your camera angle really gives a good effort!

Glad to hear you enjoyed the spin, it sure does snap and bite lol and sure can catch you out.... To be honest, I have not tracked a rwd car in many years, much more accustomed on track to fwd with track rubber, alcon 6 pots and clubsport suspension, semi stripped weighing in at 1200kg and 300bhp, but I have to say, the 1M even with it's on track Jeckle and Hyde personality, road tyres and standard brake pads, a sure blast and had me wanting more, I feel it is time to uprate those pads, caught me out a few times.

As for Spa, now at the top of my fav track list, I will be heading back over for sure (with uprated brake pads ), The elevation changes are as you would envision them to be based on pics, quality track and one of the only that allows you to overtake either side or in a corner, you can be sharing the track with all out pro GT race cars with rear wings the span of 747's, mental circuit! One to add to your must do list

Ich war da!

Great job Aussie in London. I guess those of us willing to visit next year should communicate in advance to meet there. It was my second year at the ///M Festival and I loved it.

BTW, the red M1 belongs to a Colombian friend of mine, his friends were driving the rare South African 333 E30 and the authentic last production M3 (V8 cabriolet). The M1 was the first to follow the pace car at the M Corso. Last year they were driving an 850 Csi and an E30 M3 Cecotto Edition both cars formerly owned by Johnny Cecotto himself! True fans indeed.
