Great! Thanks Dino :thumbsup:

 

The Busso V6 video I have, but have not seen the Twinspark one before now. I'll watch it with some wine in a little!

Used to own a 75 2.0TS as my “Track Car”... Was a good and light engine. Actually, the TS was used more for Tracks as the Busso because it was less “top-heavy”... did some spins nevertheless... 😂

If you don't lose it occasionally, you're not trying hard enough :drive:

Was rather more my incompetence... but I learned from it... :D

Oh I don't know ... the track is a great learning space too (except perhaps in the middle of a pack of cars!) :thumbsup:

 

Dino, please excuse the question, but is your first language German? The standard of your English strikes me as native-speaker or at least very good 2nd language level.  Just wondering!

Yeah, I did not like "Touristenfahrten" too much, as the mix of cars, bikes and even busses is really a bit annoying at times. I did however participated in GLP and RCN and several track days, which was more convenient. Maybe next year, I'll do that again.

 

Thanks for the compliment :D I work in an international environment as a Management Consultant since 22 years - so English is really my day-to-day language...

I thought perhaps something like that! It shows in your use of metaphor and colloquialisms :thumbsup:   (I used to be in ERP (SAP mainly) and management consulting circles until the amusment wore a bit thin for me)

 

Track days where you have vast mismatches in vehicle types and performance really don't do it for me. Never mind the great variance in skill of the "nut behind the wheel" ...

Se sei appassionato dei motori del grande Giuseppe Busso, dovresti leggere questo meraviglioso libro.

I have to admit the Consulting bunch is sometimes not really that amusing...but PE directors are even less so imho :D

 

On track days: Agree that it's tricky sometimes, but on the NoS it's exactly the same in races like RCN - 150 cars from Porsche down to beaten-up old Golfs...

 

Have a good day!

No idea! But I'll look for it and see. Worst case, I need to really spark my Italian from "meh" to "fairly good" :D

Yup .. basically I became a little jaded with the attitudes of some in the consulting domain (and to be honest, a little boredom factored into it too). I do keep my hand in, though. Now I play in startup land, and with tech integration and other fun bits. 

 

The day is working out ok ... thanks!

 

Great one to you too!

Sounds interesting, Paul. I will actually start a new position within a global tech firm in August... three letters, and there is a B in it... :-)
