evo track evening: 18 Au­gust, Rock­ing­ham

Evo - - NEW METAL - IN AS­SO­CI­A­TION WITH

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.
