Hello

Does anybody drive trackdays with a Yaris..? :)

My little 96 bhp/203 Nm Yaris 1,4 D-4D is a pretty nimble and fast car on a track... Anyone in here drives trackdays..?

I've uploaded a couple of videos on YouTube - the quality could be better, but... I tend to focus on driving instead... :)

Focus ST, Seat Leon Cupra (300 bhp), 406 V6 and a Subaru Impreza is no match for a Yaris... :D :P

Excellent video's Martin :D Hopefully if my Vitz ever makes it out of Southampton it will be on track as much as possible.

PaulT on here has a Supra beating Aygo, will try and see if we can get a video on board for his next sprint :thumbsup:

how did you do the -2.5deg negative camber? do you do it in a garage? or diy?

will you see the difference with -2.5? regarding road holding

Cool vids. B) I've always fancied tracking my Yaris, but I don't think my driving ability is up to it, and I couldn't afford the new tyres etc afterwards. I think I'll just stick to passengering in other people's cars for now. :D

What track is that?

I'm using H&R's Tripple C camber ajustment bolt - it's a eccentric bolt (or what do you call it in english?) you can "turn" to make more or less camber...

It's very easy to install and it works wonders on both roadholding, and the turn in... It's very crisp in the "turn in" - and your tyres get worn more evenly...

Thanks! You would not regret it... It's SO much fun... An Supra-beating Aygo..? Damn - that gives a couple of nice pictures in my head... Brilliant! :)

Trackdays is for everybody - you learn a lot from it, so you don't have to be the next Damon Hill or Schumacher to participate... Always remember that! But yes - the cost in tires and brakes is hard to come around... I've upgraded my 1,4 D-4D with T-Sport brakes (235 mm -> 255 mm) and i'm gonna fit Ferodo DS 2500 brake pads soon... Even though the standard brake pads does a very good job... :o)

The track is in Denmark - called "Flyvestation Vandel" (an old military-airfield)...

Thanks! Yep - it's a very mixed gathering of cars... Peugeot 205's, Impreza, BMW, Focus ST, Seat Leon Cupra 300+ - and the old nasty Ford Sierra Estate... :D
