I wanted to wait until I'd watched all the videos first before replying...
1. The handbrake doesn't work very well if you don't have the clutch in You're fighting the engine. But stock handbrakes are often not all that anyway, and a dab of brake helps them lock up. You pulled the handbrake a fraction after letting go of the brakes, doing it the other way around may have worked. But then you get into the issue of the engine being out of the powerband and bogging down, so you need to blip it..... You end up pressing all 3 pedals, lol.
2. It wouldn't be an autosolo without a plane landing over your head.
3. Tidy and clinical as ever. Great work. There's a couple of tight bits you could go a tad quicker on simply by rotating the car with a well timed and controlled clutch kick but otherwise great effort!
4. Please don't ask the marshals how 'that was' because it's quite hard to say 'well ya weren't the fastest' without being rude all day
The handbrake thing I realised as soon as I watched the footage back, clutch engaged, and barely moving so had no momentum to swing it round anyway I'll try that again in a few weeks.
Watching it back now I could have been a lot quicker. My faster runs were the ones I spent mostly in second gear, the trouble is it never feels fast doing that, bit leaving it in gear forces smoother progress and momentum preservation. Again, learned for my next time out.
Noted about asking for ranking, totally pointless I know!
Bedford on Monday, then another of these in 3 weeks. I have objectives!
