Enjoying a track day at Silverstone with a GTR

Got some time to go out to Silverstone and the weather was fantastic!

some quick pics of the car trying to 'blend in'









Met 2 other GTR owners there, was great to meet you guys, hope you had as much fun as we did!!

This was the first time I got to drive the new GTR my self on a track, and I can see why its changed all the rules, what a crazy machine!!!

Standard with good pads. They seem very capable!

Technically this is the Circuit Art car

Is the rear spoiler for looks or does it have any aerodynamic/downforce benefits?

Alex is sure it works. My driving skill isn't high enough to register a difference compared to a stock one, but then I only ever drove with it on. Never off. So not exactly scientific I think hks or one of those guys make...or made a down force measurement kit.

How is the spoiler actually connected? I mentioned it to Iain Litchfieldthe other day. I hadn't appreciated it but all these high downforce wings need have re boot lid reinforced or else the boot just flexes and you lose the effect.

Glue and gtr fairy dust lol.

Its bolted to the car not to the trunk. Its pretty commonly known that big wings on sheet metal do not work at their best. It was one of the reasons Al decided on it. Made sense to me.

I assume he just had to do a custom job on the rear bumper to fit the wing mounts through as it's not the bensopra rear bumper?

Same thing on their rear end. Just space to fit the brackets. Wasn't difficult
