    More fun at the track with ACR

    Just had my first track day at Silverstone last week. Lots of traffic and lots of cars spinning off so we had quite a few red flags unfortunately so only got one clear run and this was it. Great track, my second time there overall. I don't believe there has been another similar car there before so no reference I guess. However I feel there is certainly more in the tank and could dip another 5 seconds with a bit of work fairly quickly.However just to put my time in perspective Fernando Alonso holds the track record at 1:30.874 in a Formula 1!!

    Always glad to read this kind of stuff from the UK instead of the more recent bit of news.

    Many thanks for your comments guys. That's what these cars are meant for I guess so we have to do what we can to enjoy them to the fullest whilst continually finding ways of improving ourselves as well��

    The car is the star! I gather its the only ACR-E in the UK and amongst a sea of Porsches, Ferraris, and Mclarens it does stand out! Everyone wants to come around, talk to you and be your friend so its a great social tool from that point of view.

    Here is a couple of laps of my latest Silverstone track day, 2 weeks after the first. I'm getting better. I figure I've dropped about 4 seconds from then all things considering. I think the car has a 2:14-2:15 in it or possibly lower. Certainly one of, if not, the fastest production coupes on the track. Even taking into consideration my newbie status with tracking cars!I even gave a race prepped Audi R8 V10 on slicks a run for his money even if he was a touch faster than me in the end. But I will improve I know it!

    Closest I've gotten to that track is on Real Racing 3 on my iPhone! Jealous of you guys who get to run at Laguna Seca, Silverstone, Mount Panorama, etc.

    1:30. So about a minute faster than a ACR. THink about that for a second. F1 cars/drivers are amazing.

    Thanks for posting, nice driving!
