Amazing day yesterday! The Wheels 'Motoring Demonstration' consisted of two Drag races up the runway in the morning then again in the afternoon. I was in the same group as the GTR...Lichfield Stage 2. I followed hard behind him the first run but had traction issues with the paddleshift changes and went sideways around 90mph. :scared: Sorted that but was way behind.


So for the afternoon runs I switched traction control on 'Low' and left it in Sports Auto mode. Much smoother runs and topped out at 140mph :thumbs: - would have been faster but the R32 I was overtaking decided to overtake another car and pulled in front of me so I eased off as we came side to side and we had a mini race to the runway end. I backed off as I couldn't remember/see where it finished. The crowd loved it. BTW, the best run of the day was the GTR at 164mph exit speed.:respekt:


Some pics attached - no vids though...
