Thank you for your comment, the car is very safe under rain with anti skid, you can see it lighting on the video.

Hi Patrick
Yes I noted a vehicle passing you on the near side, rear end stepping out on the circuit, not good, I do enjoy a rear slide, in an controlled environment.

I've just carried out my first track day, on my ninja, no lighting, or rain,------ thank God!
The adrenaline sure flows! Will endeavour to carry out a track day in my SLK this season.

The car passing me and stepping out was a Renault Megane RS 275 hp driven by a professional pilot.
I was also passed by a VW Golf R 300hp and 4WD, very effective and safe.

Great ride

Next time, set your dash cam to show your speed. Would be great to see that component as well on some of those turns as well as the straight-aways.
