First day at the track - Nl

Well, earlier this year I took my 03 to a track day event at the dutch Zandvoort circuit and had a great time. Even more so because everything stayed in one piece and I finally got to try out all the modification I made last winter to the suspension and new engine

Braking hard from 180+ km/h at the end of the straight is incredible to do, especially many times in a row, as we had 4 times 30 minutes of track time.
Needless to say, I used them to the fullest

My buddy made some pics, but I adjusted the distance wrongly on the camera of my wife... so they are a bit blurry, but I thought to post them anyway, as I know we are all gearheads here
