Lakeside Autotest - 15 July 2012

What a day....

After a few days of rain leading up to our first ever autotest event we thought we were in for a wet one. Upon arrival, the track was holding some large puddles of water and the clouds looked like they were going to give us a drenching at any moment, but as we got started the rain held off and the water on track just added a little more excitement. 

The track was set with a series of tightening chicanes followed by some tricky corners, a lap around the donut, a few more tight corners before coming to a complete stop in the garage. 

All up i think everyone would agree it was about as much fun as you can have behind the wheel of a car and i hope everyone learnt something new about how their car handles. 

Thanks to everyone that helped out on the day, your support is greatly appreciated. Special mention to Norm and Robert who were up here from SA on holidays and participated in the event, hope you are enjoying QLD.

Given the response from the day the event will be a must for next years calendar. If your still not sure about coming out next time, just ask anyone that gave it a go.

No results as there wasn't any timing or points, but a few photos are available in the club gallery. Click here.
