Lakeside practice


firstly sorry about the poor audio. I think I am going to have to get a new camera as I just can't sort out all the noise on this one plus the fact that you can't upload only the forward view, so you get to see me having some fun!

this was Sunday at Lakeside during practice in the morning for the sprints in the afternoon. Unfortunately my camera battery died before the afternoon session but we ended up improving by over a second since our last outing.

During the sprints we put together 3 consecutive laps in the 1.06's with the best being a 1.0602 so pretty happy with that result.

Only thing we changed was the 98 pump fuel to my HT105 unleaded racing fuel and it certainly has heaps more power. Traction up the hill at Eastern loop was a problem if I gave it WOT in third.

Next step is to change the rear drum brakes to disc and also upgrade the fronts.

here is the link;

next outing is Leyburn Sprints in August so hopefully we'll have the camera sorted by then.

Looking good Lou, we've had good results with Sony action cams, my footage from last years Warwick was done on one https://youtu.be/uhgVgzf5oD0
