As always we started the day at the petrol station filling up the 3.8 litre 911 and 6.2 monster that is the Mercedes C63.
A quick stop at Wetherby services for breakfast to meet up with a couple of other SCD members.
Parked up at the track, here we have an Audi R8 V10 Plus, a V12 Vantage S (manual) with secondary cat deletes (sounded amazing), our remapped C63 also with secondry cat deletes from Milltek popping and banging all day and the 911 C4S with it’s Sharkwerks exhaust which really brings the car to life!
Fortunately non of the cars seemed to exceed the track noise limits despite being rather loud.
Either they’re not as loud as we think or the marshals weren’t being strict on the noise levels.
C63 ready to go!
For a relatively big and heavy car the C63 performed amazing on the track.
1 thing that is essential in this car is good tyres and the C63 is fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres.
Even with traction control fully turned off, the car remained stable when pushing hard and we found that traction control off was better as the systems weren’t interfering.
Probably one of the nicest spec’d M4’s on the road with the competition package.
The 911 joining the track!
The C4S had incredible grip levels but unfortunately only managed the morning session before the brake pads were fried and a brake pad service warning light meant no more track time for the 911.
There was also a lovely 458 Italia on track which sounded amazing!
Seeing a 458 on track just proves how much better they sound than the current 488.
The GT3 RS – what a machine!
The Ariel Atom turned up for the afternoon session and was an absolute track weapon.
All in all a great day, and very enjoyable experience pushing the 911 and C4S with some fellow supercar enthusiasts!
Thanks to Supercar Driver for organising the event.
We’re already looking forward to the next track day!
