Excellent video F900. I was drawn tot eh title as I will be at Bruntinthorpe this Friday (13th) for an article in 'Retro'magazine.I'm up against a Escort. BMW, Mitsubishi and Fiat - all turbos - so any advice would be welcomed, to try and keep the Saab competitive.

PS. Car currently at Jamsaab for MOT and a few 'tweaks'
Though it did go well on the way there... 'following' an idiotic M3 driver who cut across me at a junction , then undertook my other half, who was driving the 9000. He accelerated after being stuck behind 30mph traffic but could not get away from me

Will you be on the 1mile straight or 2 might straight circuit. The first corner up from the pull in/pit can be taken flat upto about 110mph, theres plenty of room to slide slightly, then keep flat to just past the brake board, drop 40mph and throw it into the right underpower. Back on the power then hard on the braked for the hard right, keep on the brakes and get far out then on the power and clip the apex of the second corner, keep flat and into 4th for the exit and slide out on to the straight. Brake well past the last board and turn into the right under power, brake again for the last right as the surface changes and theres a nasty bump. Then back onto the pit straight and back to turn 1.

Cheers
Matt

Nice. How did it go?
Looks like Saabscene is getting well represented in that mag.

A letter from Paul Haliday, EricVS getting a readers ride write up and photo, and now you in a turbo cars group test. Nice. Wish I had seen this earlier, might have trundled along to offer support.
