Title: Scottish ClubCalibra.com Meet 2009,1 Video :D
Post by: Phil. on November 01, 2009, 20:02:16 PM
Here's a vid that MartyG took of me and James racing, all I can say is the weather was awful and I only got in 2 runs before the car decided it had enough :D  When Jamesy and Marty come on hopefully they took a few pics, the rain was so heavy you couldn't even stand outside your car for 5 mins before being soaked through :(

It was a good day, would have been amazing if not for the weather, and was nice to meet a few more members :) We have already arranged to have a meet early next year at Crail again, obviously with a dry day and a few more people :D

The strip, as you will see from the video was soaked through, literally one big puddle and my car would not move until 4th Gear :D

Commentary? All I could hear was masses of revving until you guys actually managed to get some traction! :D

It was such a shame its as bad as it was guys (the weather), but we got a run up together :) and me and elle met phil and is missus :)
Ill get another vid on a min, but there is an extreme lack of pics as it was wet.
But thanks to the guys who made the effort to come all that way for not alot. But next time we'll give it beans :)

We couldn't stay stood up half the time never mind the banner :D :( The wind was horrendous mate + nobody would have really seen it anyway. It will get used proudly at the next meet though :)

True, the wind was against us though, which sucked. Nobody was pullin decent times apart from the mitsus and scoobies with 4x4.

My other race against that Civic Type R is up aswell, thats the one where I found SOME grip in second gear and my downpipe wasn't hanging off :D now for the conditions we were in that is an impressive time ;D For some reason the Civic's time didn't show up but I beat him by about 3 seconds :D

Now for some reason i find you tring excuses because i only have an ecotec and you have a 3.0 v6 with how many horses? 200+ lol and i found myself less than a second behind you.... Im impressed with this, dont matter who had traction and who dint. A race is a race, wet or dry, sh*t or shovel, You won it, i lost it, but i was close.

And as for reaction time. 2 seconds? lmao Only.8 of a second :P
