so I did a track day at Phillip Island today on the S10.. they were sure it was the first S10 on the track and the first they had seen at any of the days they organise..
So, I'm claiming first S10 on a racetrack anywhere in Oz
The bike did pretty well all things considered.. and suprised a few guys in our group as i blasted past them on a few corners..
The tyres were toast after 5 sessions with 2 wheel drifts scaring the crap out of me and sending the TC almost into meltdown
The tops speed was a real issue at PI, with me topping it out in 6th and sometimes even going for "7th" 3/4 down the straight
Was a great day and I loved some of the looks I got from the scrutineers.. one even commenting that I should be able to get around the island in 1min 30sec "if I took the dirt from turn 1 to turn 4
Anway.. here is what a toasted BW501 front tyre looks like
