    Re: Video: GTR racing at Silverstone

    I was at that race, the GT-R won.

    Re: Video: GTR racing at Silverstone

    It's incredible how much grip the GT-R has in the wet!

    Re: Video: GTR racing at Silverstone

    ^^^you must not have seen the autocar video where the guy did a 0-60 run on a field of slick wet grass with nary a hint of wheelslip just to prove how advanced the traction control system is

    Indeed, 1,2G (lateral) on a damp track is very impressive.
    No wonder J Clarksons neck couldn't cope at Fuji

    Re: Video: GTR racing at Silverstone

    The more I see/read about this car, the more amazed I am about the technology behind it... Truely a new yardstick by which everything will be measured. Can't say the same for the looks - not to my taste, and that's why I won't be buying one.

    I must have missed it. You don't happen to have a link? I am sooooo tempted to call a Nissan dealer with my credit card...

    I attended Silverstone on a different day. It was really really wet and yet the Nissan was so assured it was quite amazing, especially at the speed my instructor was putting out. attached are a couple of photo's from the day. Black car from a fellow driver and me in the red

    Watch the video in my Autocar 0-100-0 post, the wet grass acceleration is right at the end.

    Go on Wayne, call the dealer, I dare you
    We need a GT-R on Rennteam...

    Ignore the test ... The GT-R gets beat by a Caterham by tenths. Expected given the Caterham weighs about as much as 3 motorcycles.

    Fast Forward to the last 30 or so seconds of the video...

    No vehicle without tank tracks or mud bog tires should be able to accelerate like that on slick grass let alone on road tires
