When the season started I was hoping I’ll be able to get in a few more sessions than last year. But as luck would have it, I’ve missed two over the summer, and this one was the first one after early August. Car track days are definitely secondary for the organizers, as it seems they had almost daily track days for motorbikes over the summer. Which is really a shame since car track days are always full, even when they give us a weird time. As it happened this time – Thursday later afternoon, from 17 to 20.
Unfortunately, the weather was not on our side for this session. We’ve had some dry minutes, but also pouring rain which meant that the track was wet the whole time.
The new tires I fitted for this season, the Cup 2, definitely do not feel at home on the wet. I’ve had to catch the car at least three times and had no chance of keeping up with FWD Type-R Civics which are usually clocking around the same time.
Grobnik is a racetrack located two hours away from me, near Rijeka, Croatia. I’ve started going to track days regularly last year when they renovated the track with new asphalt. It was also in the first year when I owned a car worth driving to the racetrack. 🙂
