    An unplanned afternoon at the track

    The humble 986 board has only a single thread in it, so I thought it deserves a second! :-)

    Last Thursday, after work, I met up with good friends at a local track (for an event by a Greek car magazine). After a few laps in the passenger seat of a Nissan GT-R (pretty fast, but uninspiring IMHO), I could not resist a few laps in my own car (helmet was at home, unfortunately). In the end, I did about half an hour's worth :-)  (BTW, no, stock brake pads don't like this sort of thing, although they hold up surprisingly well until lap 30 or so :-).

    Great to see one being used properly


    Re: An unplanned afternoon at the track

    Thank you to all! I am glad you like the photos. The track is called "Megara". It is to the east of Athens:

    Re: An unplanned afternoon at the track

    Ferdie, you are quite right, of course :-) But I was doing well when I wasn't waving. 

    Ed, it's not the bulb. The problem is known for these cars and it has to do with the headlight switch. On occasion, it will not start up one, or both "litronic" bulbs. I thought I had it fixed because it had not happened for months but, alas, it crept up that evening.
