This Sunday, at Tushino Bigpikcha took part in the races Fight Club Jaguar . And although the weather was not very flight and we stopped just one step away from the winners, gathered enough emotion still a couple of weeks ahead.
First of all like to point out the event. And the tent and a buffet and instruction – all was good. Participants not any question that now do, where to go and just do what we all gathered here .
In the tent were several screens on which the support group they could watch their idols in real time
And around the Jaguars were one, so the aesthetic pleasure even got people that have no relation to driving cars. Still, Jaguar is Jaguar.
The event was well-known journalist – Andrei Leontiev.
Bigpikchu represented Pasha Nesterov
Briefing was sometimes harsh, like “to be trifled with jaguars”
Participants were offered helmets 3 different sizes
By the draw we got the most representative class – XJ Diesel.
“He said he went and waved his hand”
As the instructor told us, Anton – “machine accessible from the Old Town Square to the White House.” That is the real representative class.
In the back seat, we did not sit down, but certainly there and everything is in order. But on the driver’s seat, his head of our pilot (with an increase in 192 cm) rested against the ceiling without a helmet, and yet still had to wear it as well. I had to drop the seat down, recline the seat back and draw back his shoulders. It was uncomfortable – it’s putting it mildly.
Nevertheless, the car is very dynamic, well-helm, steering without harshness, no problem can go fast.
Banks in the corners are small, the machine’s behavior is predictable. If you had too much speed when entering a corner, the car slides out smoothly, gives time for correction of errors. Perhaps in this situation helps to exchange rate stability.
The brakes seemed too sensitive
A little upset gearbox. Thoughtful beyond measure at kikdaune when exiting corners and when you add gas, there is a delay with an increase in thrust. In this situation, perhaps it would be right to go through all the turns under the hood to minimize the number of switchings in the transmission.
The machine is certainly not to set records in races, but can surprise their capabilities and gives positive emotions in control. Originally a hurried from the big sedan is clearly not expected.
Bigpikcha thanks ilyavaliev and company Jaguar for a great Sunday
