    Took this out to a tuning session at Barbagallos yesterday.
    Was hoping to crack a 65 but didn't quite get there with all the traffic.
    Brakes aren't as confidence inspiring as I would like, but the car ran flawlessly until I ran out of fuel.

    Still set a new PB of 66.23.
    New tune made most of the difference as I was hitting up to 225kmh on the back straight (my previous fastest lap had a top speed of 212kmh).


    Threw the car on the scales while I was there.
    Not exactly a lightweight at 1542kgs


    And a video

    Went to another tuning session and got my 65, just.
    65.94


    Car is happy to do as many laps as I want, except the brakes which aren't up to what I'm asking of them.
    There is definitely some more time in it if I had more confidence in the brakes.
    But thinking I may draw the line here and get the track car finished instead.

    And just because, this is what 200ish laps of Barbagallos over two years will do to shiny blue brakes.
