evo track evening: 18 August, Rockingham
THE EVO TRACK DAY TEAM descended once more on the banked oval of Rockingham for our third track evening of the summer. As attendees gathered in the paddock the rain held off, and as the klaxon sounded, the pitlane was opened.
The obligatory plethora of Porsches, from old 911s to Cayman GT4S, were a welcome sight. So too was an Italian duo: evo’s long-term Giulia Quadrifoglio and a GTV6 bookending the last 40 or so years of Alfa Romeo production.
The warm mid-evening temperatures provided pleasant respite for those roaming the paddock. On track, negotiating the seven-degree-banked Turn 1 – throttle pinned – was a riveting feat for many. Perfecting, or otherwise, the braking point for the tight Turn 2 often set the tone for the rest of the lap.
If you missed out, we return to the tricky infield at Rockingham for our final track evening of the year on Friday 29 September. evo’s Fast Fleet cars will there, as will GT Radial with a variety of cars shod in the company’s tyres for you to test.
