    Re: Area 27 track

    Lars997:

    I'm speechless how fast you guys could accomplish this track. Wasn't it just days ago when you started? 

    Congrats Nick - great project, very beautiful track. You will have a lot of fun out there!!!! Enjoy!

    Re: Area 27 track

    Whoopsy:

    Including the planning phase it was over 3 years now.

    But once permits and paper works are done, the actual construction took only about 9 months from ground breaking.

    Jacque decided to use a lot of the natural flow of the land so we don't have to move even more dirt, and we were lucky to have access to giant mining machines, had we used regular heavy equipments it would have taken a bit longer. For example the CAT D9 we were using is double the size of the normal D8 which are used in normal constructions. 

    9 Months are very fast and the natural flow will make it even more beautiful and more demanding to drive. 

    Looking forward to your first driving report. Please let us know how that track feels! Smiley

    Re: Area 27 track

    Which direction around does it go?

    We'll be expecting lap times for each of your cars, although, maybe you can leave the Odyssey at home.


    Re: Area 27 track

    Counter clockwise.

    That big piece of asphalt on top? Next to it is our penis shaped pit lane,  and right in front of those are our start/finish straight.

    Re: Area 27 track

    That looks like a really large pit delta.


    Re: Area 27 track

    As of right now the track has been opened for just about 3 weeks.

    4 guys went off, all of them pros, all on the first corporate day by Lamborghini. They had drivers from the Blancpain series over for some sessions with customers.

    Funny thing is, they all went off in the same corner, Turn 9, blind apex uphill then downhill. The corner is the 90 degree left-hander, right above the group of trees in the bottom middle of the arial pic. 

    The current lap record is a 2:10:57 on a F2000 race car.

    Fastest current road car record is a 2:26ish in a 2015 991.1 Turbo S driven by an amateur (but ex-racer from 20 years ago), a 675LT lapped a 2:23ish but driven by a current pro.

    Re: Area 27 track

    looking fantastic Nick ! can't wait to see some on board videos. 


    Re: Area 27 track

    "675LT lapped a 2:23ish but driven by a current pro".

    That makes it much longer than any of the other local tracks. Fantastic news. At The Ridge [now the second longest track around here], 675LT should be in the 1:40s. 

    I really hope this track becomes occasionally available for none-members to run. 


    Re: Area 27 track

    curios to see ur clubsport time there, Do you want to officially start it there?

    No, no...this is a really large P delta. Smiley

    They should call it the big P (suggestion for Nick). Smiley Smiley

    For access to the track I'll build the wall myself. 


    Re: Area 27 track

    I just finished a 2 day driving school at the track, my first time ever on it and it freaking blows my mind.

    Flying around the 918 on the track is nice, but I was more focus on the line, had about 30 laps total on the long course and around the same for the short one. I still have much to learn. As in, I am taking all the corners way too slow :(

    My personal best is a 2:37, I am sure it can and will drop drastically later on.

    At the end of the school I had the lead instructor Richard Spenard took my car out, he has never driven a 918 before and he only did 3 laps, and out lap, - sort of flying lap then the in lap, casually setting the production car record at 2:17, and he was only in sports mode. I got everything on GoPro too.

    His smile when he got out was priceless. He said he could properly find another 4 seconds or so if he tried.

    No pictures yet, as I seems to be having problem uploading pictures from the iPhone. Will do tomorrow when I get home.

    I bet you'll have great fun with the Cayman CS on this track with its nice balance and added safety with cage and full race seat.

    Enjoy
