The Yellow Peril looked and sounded awesome on Sunday Paul, it made the 997 Cups look positively pedestrian.
Stunning weather at Prescott, a perfect day’s motorsport spectating smile

It's a shame they lump the 4x4 stuff in against the 2wd, but I guess they can only run so many classes. Never been to Prescott, but it looks a great venue. I'm guessing that tight, left-hand uphill bend is much, much steeper than the camera suggests?

Some tidy driving there!

Yes it does not seem fair to have 4 wheel drive on soft slicks,650bhp and all the gizmo,s you can throw at it,just look at how tight the lines are,as in hugging the inside the corners.Why do they call them monkey carssmile
Pardon corner is steep with a tight camber in it,good fun though ,as long as you keep it on the black stuff!

Saw some type of low-flying Locaterfield type car have an amusing off there early in the video. Narrowly missed the trees on the infield. I imagine it is easily done.

And here’s what happens when you’re approach speed is too high/you miss/misjudge your braking point at pardon ...



Ettore’s (the long sweeping right-hander before pardon) is tighter than it looks, needs patience and lasts forever !!

Or your foot slips off the brake pedal onto the gas.... From the driver's mouth. A real pity for Pete as he'd been posting some good runs in the OMS lately.

Sprints and hillclimbs are the epitome of st or bust. Sometimes it's just tough.
