Peugeot 208 GTi Racing Experience, Testing (Part 2)

Gonzalo tells me to enjoy and close the door. Touch the brake pedal and clutch slightly to see what the touch is. A soft clutch, a hard brake like a stone. When you start the engine by pressing the button on the center console, the racing car sound will put me in position. I am not behind the wheel. Peugeot 208 GTi I can drive anyone, I am a little more special behind the wheel of the car.

You must press the white button on the left arm of the handle if it is not enough to hold the clutch and press the right cam first. Button, Clutch and Right Cam Meter First. It is displayed with a unique metallic sound when the giant screen and pinion fit behind the steering wheel.

I'll give you some gas and loosen the clutch a little bit The car inevitably enters my way. . The touch is not so similar to the car on the street I expected. I imagine that Gonzalo is no longer familiar. I am familiar with the assist clutch of today 's car.

Secondly, I start myself without continuing to do foolish things, Pit lane Jarama I want to step on the accelerator.. If you pass the end of the wall and touch the floor completely, the car rises quickly as soon as it sits in place.

The first curve calmly took them away. I got the feeling of the car, the tires, I gave the temperature and I had to avoid mistakes. In the middle of the circuit I think I already knew what the feel of the brake pedal is. The feel of the brake pedal was the most difficult for me to assimilate. It was very difficult..

So, I had to start enjoying myself. The first thing that stands out in this style of car The address is very direct.. You have to turn the wheels to draw the closest corner of Jirama. This is something that does not usually happen on a street car.

The engine has an immediate response 100% Turbo Character. When you start flying, it is perfectly in your eyes. Especially the front wheels tend to slip very easily because they are so thorough as accelerators.

It is normal to have to step on the accelerator due to excessive desire, but it is not recommended at all. The only thing you get is that your nose slides out and overturns. Therefore, it is a good idea to step on the brakes before starting the rotation. Place the straight line so that the car can accelerate as fast as possible while rolling around the corners of the curve..

The feeling of lightness is always complete and absolute. So far I have only driven MINI Challenge, Radical SR3, Nissan Leaf Nismo, Juke-R and Ferrari F430 GT as racing cars. This is without a doubt the closest person to all their radicals..

I noticed it in many ways. On the other hand, The suspension is softer than I expected.Despite the strongest support, the body flows. On the other hand, a quick corner after Pegaso can take them to a very high pace. Because of its lightness, you can give them a very strong entry conviction.

Suspension has nothing to do with the suspension of another race car he drives. They are so soft and so soft that they can adapt well to the irregular appearance of the Eifel mountains. So, for this point, forget the referecias of other racing cars. Here, when the brake is hard, the body sinks forward. When accelerated, it sinks from the back and tends to shake a little from the corner..

Little by little I get confidence and speed up. In particular, you can increase your braking power and keep up with the curve at a faster rate. It is where racing cars can give you more difference than street cars. Mainly as a tire grip smooth, They cling to the asphalt like limpet when they have the proper temperature.

Generally The car looks very easy to drive.There is nothing envious about the MINI Challenge. It is the closest car I have tried to reduce the difference in power. Maybe it's a combination of ductile and pneumatic suspension. Slick It is easier to carry for people who do not have much experience like me. Or you may not remove 50% of your potential. Possible if possible..

The operation of the gearbox is truly amazing.. Respond to commands immediately. When you ask him to go up and down, the touch of cam is so good that you seem to have a lifetime in your hands.

The control panel has a series of LED indicators ranging from green to red, which indicates that you should always change to a higher gear. I was very grateful for recognizing the revolution in such racing cars. Catch the point you are cutting. It usually takes a little longer than the two laps I gave Jarama..

The brakes signed by AP racing allow as many brakes as I showed at the end of the straight line. The touch at the beginning is complicated by the hardness of the pedal, but once you get used to it They are pretty committable..

I could not tell the top speed I reached in the main straight. But I dare say it was about 220 km / h, Much higher than other references to the streetcar that I can squeeze into the same batch.

The lightness I have mentioned above gives you the opportunity to accelerate your braking power even faster. You do not have a huge mass to stop. The car is very noble when braking., The site you are calling at any time does not show the symptoms you want to move.

It is essential not to make mistakes in these simple contacts. So at the exit of some curves I was conservative and stayed on a longer march than I should have. There, when you ask for an answer from that turn, 1.6 The turbocharacter of the engine should always be carried, especially where the turbo blows or blows..

Racing drivers are always accustomed to optimal use windows. I became a bourgeois street car. I usually work for MotorpasiĆ³n. I can do it as soon as I can reach the end of the circuit and the car is showing noble noble.

I think I made a classic rookie error on one of the curves. Please throw the vertex too early.So I left without the correct trajectory at the exit of the curve, and the asphalt ended because I tried to solve the problem by entering the direction. Even under the circumstances compromised by me, the car showed that you have to go past much more than you did to make a turn.

Without realizing it very little, the end of my session with the uge Zeo 208 GTi race experience arrived, the car that was born to compete in the 24 hour Nurburgring, We have shown that it can deliver enviable performance in completely different layouts, such as Jarama..

Was it better or worse than your rivals? Currently this car has few rivals in orbit. Because the power of the Clio Cup is much less. Maybe we will have to wait for a new seat Leon. Seat Sports is pushing plans to go back to the competition we know.

Enfilo does not touch the stage straight on the goal, but this time on the ground and does not stigmatize. If you touch the pit lane and operate the speed limit button, the engine automatically decelerates the rotation and does not exceed 60 km / h. It was short but intense.

The uge Zeo 208 GTi put me all to try for now and then the race car for you. So considering that we have already tested the street 208 GTi in its presentation in France (Part 1 and Part 2) and it is the next step on the logical scale that we derive the 208 GTi racing experience from Jarama At Peak Peak 208 T16.

Thankfully, the dream is free. Unfortunately, this car told us Peugeot officials told us The price of the three units is about 220,000 euros. One will go to the Peugeot Museum, the other will be a sign for the promotional event. And maybe another one will end sometime in the collection of some passionate individuals about the car of our country.

I was a unique experience to test this car and I hope to bring more racing cars to MotorpasiĆ³n. In the meantime, maybe Thorough testing of the Peugeot 208 GTI, A 1.6 THP of 200 HP, a weight of 1,160 kilograms and a cost of 22,900 euros, thanks to a much more mundane, relieving sensation thirst Gyeongju Go inside me …
