i did a rally school day the other weekend... around the outskirts of the oran park facility...

fanged around in three subies, an evo and a v8 ute... they all had different characteristics, even all the subies... was good fun.

ian dyke was one of the instructors, the aussie A1 driver for a year... he was the best instructer to have in the car on the day, mainly for the usefulness of his semi-notes he'd call out and his positive feedback... i got a "good job" from him after one of the longer afternoon sessions, hehe... (i was driving like a homo tbh, i didn't want to break anything Wink)

it was pretty funny actually, one of the other instructers was having as much as we were, but the guy who built the subies was stressing hard during and after the mornign session, he was really negative, pretty much saying we were all shit, lol... he ended up staying out of the instructer seat in the arvo sessions to let his nerves settle, lol... he kept saying "you brake it, you bought it!" Very Happy priceless!... but he was damn quick in the hotlap sessions at the end of the day... i don't doubt his talent, but his communictuion skills were poor, and you really had to manipulate him into a more cheery disposition... ... i totally respected his concern for the cars he built, but i guess he's one of those guys that are a bit control freaky, in that, given his massive understanding of the car, he just can't be comfortable not being in control... especially with the group of five i was there with - that is, certainly not complete strangers to quick vehicles Wink

one of the other punters there was a skip barber instructer, who was interesting to talk with about the skippy and iRacing... which is one of the chassis in it... he'd never heard of it before, but was looking into giving the targa tasmania go... haven't we all?

rally is good!




but sim racing's is still more fun... and waaaay cheaper Wink

So how far did he pull. Tractor pulls in our little community are quite popular, I have yet to go.

Holy shit! That was a close call...

I remember when they used to show tractor pulling on Eurosport here. I always enjoyed watching the insane tractors they would build, with engines sticking out everywhere. Some would run with old airplane engines (like Spitfire or Mustang engines...and I mean the planes not the cars!) or old helicopter jet engines.

Total nutjobs!

Very nice videos there. I love seeing motorsport like that in slow motion, especially the bike racing. There are some longer extreme slow motion videos from the IOM TT on Youtube that are good.

The music was well chosen as well.

Segments are too short: I keep thinking I'm going see something but it keeps fading to black.

I would really love to see some MotoGP clips with full corner sequences, like braking so hard the rear wheel is lifting and then back on it so hard the bike is drifting with the front wheel coming up. I've seen that happen at live speed...

lol, anything where Darwinism has anything to do with it, i tend to skip the numbers and go straight to the warm fuzzy feeling that everything will sort itself out in the end. Smile
