“Public” Test #1

R35 ST1 #1

Despite showing on the timing screens, managed to go under the radar (for most part) with only one media photographer paying attention at the very end of the session.

Suppose there is no harm now since his photos have already hit the net. 

Although of great interest to R35 owners around the world, the slicks probably will not be available to a dealer near you soon.

Wet session saw use of the wets for the first time. 

Times laid down by TT during the dry shows that the machine will be comeptitive for pure lap time in ST1.  KM was merely 2 seconds off the GT500 cars after the rain started. 

Half day was highly productive, the data collected and advice received from the drivers indicate some need of design changes for #2.
