First track day

Took the Abarth on its and my first track day.

It was Alfa Romeo club day but unfortunately, both my Alfas were not ready.

So I took the Abarth instead and....

Fastest lap of the day (actually the 6 fastest laps of the day) against some high horsepower cars.

Car was lovely, quick and chukable, the low weight and small size definitely helped in the chicanes. And the TTC did a great job too.

Now I'm thinking SS

Superb. Good to hear of the little 500 more than holding it's own against the Alfas.

In Cyprus, between Larnaca and Paralimni. Real close to the British bases actually.
