Team Peron, driver Sean Wheatley and the Audi TTRS headed for the iconic Donington Park Circuit on bank holiday Monday for round 6 of the Time Attack UK.
It was Sean’s first visit to the track and spent the warm up session figuring out the lines on this very fast layout with speeds up to 140mph at the end of each straight and several bends taken at over 100mph.
The next session was very good for us getting some clean traffic free runs and posting up a 1:17.4 (video below) which was good enough for 3rd in the group of 29 cars.
Qualifying was hampered with traffic and cut short but in the final Sean put in some personal best sectors but unfortunately not on the same lap and couldn’t improve ending up with 1:18.0 in 10th place but just 7/10ths away from 5th and 2nd in class; very good and close competition! Our best sectors of the day gave us a 1:16.5 so much more to be had with consistency and track time!
All in all a very positive day for the Peron TTRS as a clubman+ spec car running in the next class up. Our 1:17.377 was the 6th fastest of the day in Club2wd/4wd and easily beat the existing Clubman+ track record of 1:19 set by an Evo8 in 2017.
Watch this space as we continue to develop the TTRS ready for a title challenge in Time Attack 2022 with suspension, aero, carbon parts and of course...more power!!
