    Time Attack testing at Snetterton. (loads of pictures 56k beware!!)

    Had a great day testing my friends R34 Skyline around the track.

    Day started at 5am!!!!



    Filled up the skyline with super unleaded just outside the track.



    Got setup, booked in and just had to wait for the morning session to start.









    We had an issue with both the ABS and 4wd systems but after a good look round decided to see how it went on track.






    As with most things with cars we got 2 laps in before the trouble started!!!!




    Note the transmission fluid all over the floor!! The car got black flagged because of it. Couldn't find the leak, so thats something else that needs doing!

    Cleaned it up best as we could and just about got it ready for the afternoon season. But once again it was short lived.

    This time got in about 5 laps and had just turned the boost up to 2.1bar pushing just over 800hp on race fuel when there was complete failure of the electric system. May well be linked to the early abs & 4wd problems but the car stopped out on track and had to be towed back.
    This time it was ****ed and we could get it re-started. End of the day for us but I enjoyed watching the pro teams from the pit wall.

    Looks like a good day out, did you take a mechanic with you?
    I take it you didn't manage to get a time through with the car breaking down?
