GT on Track at Blyton Park

Recommended Posts

Had some fun with some mates yesterday. I live 2 miles from Blyton Park, so can go a little harder then normal without worrying about getting home lol.


They both have some seriously spec'd EP3's. (Red & Grey).



Don't expect miracles. Its only lightly modded.



Engine: Exhaust, Decat, FMIC, E-Manage Blue Mapped to 1bar. Stock Engine & Turbo.


Chassis: Whiteline Rear Anti-Roll Bar, Whiteline Front Camber Bolts, Alignment. 195/50/15 Federal 595RSR.

Some areas where aero is really needed and my driving skills need honing too, However! Smiles per Miles! :)

Love the pics, seen the first 10 or so mins so far. Battle with the Grey one was nice, how much power is it running?

I reckon some coilies would help reduce the body roll then you'd want to chase aero. Bit of left foot braking will help tuck into those tight left-rights and keep the diff loaded ;)

^Best way to get the hang of that is just do it on the regular, driving daily etc. It becomes a habit haha

Hasn't moved this year. Have so much money in it now that using it is always a worry lol. Especially with the quality of some of the driving I have seen on track days recently!

Crash this GT I can just reshell it. No Harm Done. The Glanza has pretty serious fab and mods to make a re-shell very expensive and time consuming. Might change but for the time being, cheap thrills!

May change someday but for time being....

Very impressive. Up there with AD08's!

I got a great deal on mine, £200 delivered pretty much! Which is awesome!

When you get them up to temp. I was very impressed!

Both the Grey & Red EP3's are 210-215bhp. (Low Miles, Gruppe-M Intake, Cat-Back Exhausts & Fully Stripped Out (No Carpets, Roof Liners, Plastics. etc)) They are very well prepared. On a bigger track they will walk away from this GT Im sure.

Yeh, the GT is very basic. Even with my lack of racing driver talent and with a very basic spec GT, chasing something like that is fairly respectable.

If I can do it in size 11 brogues I'm sure you can too :p
