Driving a BX around the Hamilton Street Racing Track

Post by kiwi »

Got to drive the BX around the Hamilton V8 street race circuit 8)

Image

1st corner facing the start line

Image

between turn 1 and 2

Image

Dont want to hit that :wink:

Image

Through the Pits the wrong way :shock:

Image

Green light lets go racing :lol:

That first corner again

Its not until you drive around some parts of the track you realise how narrow it is and to think these V8s are doing well of 160kph on these roads normally 50kph.

Not exactly a race track is it? lol

It\'s a part time street circuit with the cones out. Come back when you\'ve done Leguna Seca :lol:

Yes your right it is a part time street circuit for 3 days per year that host a round of a v8 series and I dont get to go around it that often so close to race weekend (15th-17th April).

You got to admit though it is a pretty cool feeling to be driving on the roads that forms part of the track circuit. The ultimate cool feeling is to be stopped by those traffic lights in the first picture and find yourself on one of the grid slots. Couple of Formula 1 cars wouldnt go a miss either :D

Tell you what though it drives the GPS crazy looking for a route through the track circuit with the blocked off roads and junctions :lol:
