    Any of you fat cunts done the V8Race Experience thing?

    So the nopics got me a voucher for this V8 Race thing which is supposed to be happening at Wakefield Park next weekend, being a V8 Supercar type set up I'd imagine a tight race seat.

    My last experience with a Race style seat didn't fit too well due to me being a fat cunt, have made myself even more of a fat cunt since then.

    Reckon there will be an issue?

    It's more about how wide you are down low than how much you weigh.. Junior gave the young fella in the garage next to us a few laps at Winton the other week, he didn't look particularly fat, but he had pretty big thighs and hips and he couldn't get down into the seat, he was kinda riding up on the sides, looked pretty uncomfortable. A lot of race seats come in wide fittings, it might be worth phoning the organisers ahead of time to see if they have a wide seat they can install for you.

    Did something like 21 laps down a wakey. You'll be fine. In our group it was mostly fat old men like me lol

    Oh and if you don't act like a knob and show some reasonable driving skills your instructor will likely lay off the foot brake he has to stop the party. I managed some decent laps once he had confidence that I wouldn't punt it.

    dunno about the v8 race cars, they're just regular cars. Been in a real V8 Supercar (a HRT VZ), the biggest problem was getting around the cage, once in the seat was fine.

    Yeah, they're basically stripped out "super sprint" style car, with fixed bucket seats, harness, pretty sure it had a cage (was a few year ago now). They went quite well for what they were. But they're not a full on race car.

    I'm 6'5" and probably ~150kg when I did and I have fairly chunky thighs. I was slightly up on the sides of the seat but sunk down and settled into it nicely quite, in a pretty short time.

    Yeah OK, I'm 6' and 144kg (should have mentioned before).

    Might take some measurements and send them a email to be sure but if worse comes to worse I will just be sitting up a bit for a few laps.


    Thanks gents!

    The ones I have been in were built up stripped out caged with all the safety gear. Run with between 400-450hp
    supercar brakes front and rear and really good suspension. They handled really well and stopped even better
    very safe and secure. I feel the cars could easily handle 200 more horsepower and be a bloody good thing.
    Once you prove your not a dickhead they pretty much let you go as quick as you can drive as long as you have
    good control. They give instructions on lines,braking and in general let you have a go. Just dont be a dickhead.

    I'm 100kg but 6'2 and the last racecar I tried to get into was a Nissan GTR GT3 which has put me off doing something like this until I lose bit of weight.

    This happened today, fitting in the seat was no issue.

    Fitting into the race suit was another story (I couldn't do it up), plus getting in and out of the only race car without side intrusion bars was a challenge.

    Still a fun day.
