I bought a k series superlight last year with the aim of doing some more trackdays. @jerzybondovyou moved into our garage at Snetterton a couple of weeks ago! Looks like you had a good evening

Ah, was great to meet you! Had a fab evening - doing 2'24" laps by the end of it, still not as quick as I am on the bike round there which was a bit surprising given the extra rubber on offer! Loved the Evora though :) Also - dare I mention it - had perhaps the most shameful moment of my track day career - having a spin on the *second corner of the sighting laps* 😳. Put the car in sport mode, booted it out of the hairpin, lost the back end to the left, caught it and came round to the right, lifted off like a chump and gently departed the track backwards. Marshalls didn't seem to care so I quickly rejoined the procession and spent the next hour berating myself for being such a massive twat. [As an aside, it does seem that sport mode more or less turns the traction control completely off?]

FWIW, it doesn't. It allows for a bit more slip but it is still definitely there.

 

From the Service Notes:

"In order to cater for the preferences of some sport oriented drivers, a Sport Mode selector button is provided to deliver quicker throttle response, increased wheel slippage thresholds, no throttle reduction on detection of understeer, and a maximum continuous engine speed raised from 6,600 to 7,000 rpm."

Those increased wheel slippage thresholds are enough to go properly sideways it seems!  

I was suprsied by this also

 

Had mine afew weeks now but a quick get away from a junction a week or so ago required a fair amount of opossite lock, coming from an Elise with little low end grunt its a fair change i did wonder if the TC actually worked but seeing its reduced in sport makes sense now as i was in sport mode
