any more feedback?

I've gone about 1s quicker in both Mini and Impreza, but convinced there is more to come, esp in the Mini as there are changes to gearbox to work with.

Having done more laps since my last comment, I think the surface certainly has more grip. I suspect that's just because of less surface wear/polish than on the old surface.

The softening of profiles at Duffus and the Chicane also allow more committed driving. You only need to look at the mini's going through the Chicane to see how the track (height) flows better. I just think this is probably the first time it has been resurfaced with a conscious regard to the dynamics of the corner and we're simply seeing better tyre contact (particularly on the exit of corners where it matters).

I think (if dry) that there will be more records in SLS this weekend as folk get a grip (boom boom) of the track changes. Its hard to go from known grip levels/corner speeds up without much seat time.

I watch that 53.0s lap back and see half a sec in it lol

so Fee is now down into mid 53s in the Impreza and fairly consitantly able to hit low 63 in the Mini - backs up the ~1sec track gains <nothing different with impreza>

I have had very limited time on track this year, but there is for sure a new bump on the pit straight. As for finding the circuit quicker, I have actually gone slower! I think that is a distinct lack of seat time and varying car issues.

Which direction?

I think the area near pit entry (normal) is a bit bumpier, but cant say i've noticed much different on the rest of the straight

Yup, same bump I’m talking about.

It’s a bit of an issue on wet reverse days!
