So, dusted off my Alfetta and took it to the track today. Short track day, only 9am to 11am, but managed to get about 5 sessions in!
Car ran well, overheated in one session, but there is a water leak somewhere that I can't find. Grip was on the lower end today - took 3 laps to get the tyres hot and grippy. Did a new personal best for me in the old skedonk - a 1:25.9. Not too bad if you take into account there are many, many dead horses under the bonnet!
On the last session with a minute to go, I managed to make an ass of myself and go off spectacularly in T1, foot flat in 4th gear. Turned in too early and ran out of road. Nearly rolled it!
Couldn't drive to pits as car didn't want to start. Investigation shows that the Watts linkage must have hit the fuel line and ripped it off the tank. Popped that back on and all is well. Drove the car onto the trailer!
Was an awesome day out!
Here are links to vids of the fastest lap, and the off in T1. Check around 12 seconds into the clip how almost I flipped it!
Going off in T1, full-tilt!
