IMG_7286 copyFor the first time, some of our members take the 86 out for a trackday, putting this car to the test for the first time. The weather on that day was warm and humid. The track was pretty dusty and humid as well.

A couple of the 86’es had their transmission and brake fluids swapped for something more genuine. Tire pressures were adjusted and off they went on track.

Dubai Autodrome National Raceday, March 29

image003

I just got this banner like a several minutes ago for the National Raceday taking place ‘tomorrow’ at the Dubai Autodrome.

It can be a nice spot for us to chill and have a little chat about this community and perhaps even meeting a few new faces?

The race will start in the morning but we can be there during the afternoon to check out the second run right after their lunch break.
Those going there will park at the paddock area so it will be easy to find and spot our members.

For more details check out the event’s timetable.

 Those who are up for going there to watch it, kindly, drop us a comment letting us know!

Now that summer is here outdoor activities are going significantly down; we are left with evening events. Finally, special thanks to Yohaan for sharing some of his shots from that evening.

Etisalat's F1x3

One of the good things about living or working around the Motor City is that any track activity can be heard from a distance so in-case you are not sure if you are missing something you will be hearing it. Though its not sure how some of the residents of Motor City feel about it.

There was noise today, a high-revving croaky-roar noise coming out of autodrome; nothing like the usual.

Went there for a quick peek to find out that Etisalat got their 3 seat 2GP race car back as a promotional event  for their 100mbps internet connection.
