First virgin Tracking experience

Finally i tracked my SLK,
it was completely stock with "skinny" 16" P7 tires, 205F-225R

Enjoyed myself very much on the track.
I learn a lot about the car and also improve my driving skill
It was a BLAST!!

Good to see the SLK flexing its muscles, I was quiet surprised in seeing another SLK and a C32 AMG in those photos. Thank you for sharing.

I'm glad you had fun. Road courses are definitely where I've had the most fun with my SLK.

BTW, I have to comment on the tape too. Seriously... it looks like it cost a small fortune. I think you could get by with a little less next time.

, that takes too much time, it's better to invest in a colgan bra, much easier to install and remove.

Wouldn't a similar colour to the tape on your car look magnificent on an SLK with blue interior and say a brabus aerokit.

:-) All I can say is "wow" on the tape-job. Gotta agree with the others, grab a "real" bra for the track and I can only imagine you'll end up saving money (and time?!) in the long run!

Tape is tape... perspective.

What is the track name? It's so lush. It looks like a great place to run...
