First impressions at Manfeild

Unfortunately I’m no spring chicken and you’d think that I would be pretty knowledgeable about my likes and dislikes by now.

But I’ve surprised myself – I think I may be… *sigh*… a racing petrolhead groupie.

You see, I don’t even know the proper name to call myself!

It hit me as soon as I parked the car and turned off the engine.

The noise! That reverberating vrooming of the Toyota Racing Series cars – it rocked! I was so excited I instantly rang my mate Jane just so she could hear it too. So far I’ve resisted earplugs – maybe as the weekend goes on those amazing sounds may pall.

I don’t think so though 🙂 As I’m typing this blog, I’m upstairs at the Media office and some cars have just gone out onto the track – I can see them now – they’re V8s, and the sounds as they go onto the track are vibrating through the building.

Maybe I should soup up my wee Nissan…

    Hey Janey

    yeah – the sound is awesome! Its been pretty wet up here all day and it does affect the speeds – up to about 20% reduction in speed. I noticed that the Toyota Racing Series cars didn’t race in their slicks in the last race of the day.

    I loved that sound, thanks for calling! Is it pretty wet up there? Does that affect the speeds the cars can do?
