Vitz on track AGAIN !! (Italy)

Hello to all YarisWorld enthusiasts !!

TOday I'll post my second Trackday experience in my little Toyota Vitz 1.0L.

I posted months ago about my first run in another circuit, but I had 4 o 5 replies, so I hope that this time people will watch how a stock Toyota Yaris goes around a racing track XD

This time the track is smaller than last time. Is called ISAM, that stands for "Istituto Sperimentale Auto e Moto" (Sperimental institute for cars and bikes), near Rome in Italy.

My car has the same Tires, brakes and suspension-set of my last trackday.. and they are like this since....2000 (completely stock)
Obviously the brakes are not, and so the tires, but they have now over 30.000 miles (brakes) and 15.000 miles (tires) of life.

So, for better driving (and speed) i removed rear seats and lots of things like the spare wheel and tools.
The car was totaly "undressed" only whit the two front seats and me at the wheel.

Stop Talking and here's the videos (sorry but comments and tags are in Italian)

enjoy !!

My car was built in 1999 because my mother purchased it in 2000.

And all Toyota Yaris were built in japan until 2002.
After that year all the european production was made in France, but i'k not sure about the engine.

MY car, be sure of it, is 100% made in japan XD
