Well it was such a great day I just had to do it! Needed a bit (lots really) more trim but my son was driving and I had the camera.

Enjoy

Some time ago, hope you enjoy it anyway.
Noise of wind and engine is annoying.
Used trim and power lift, but not in the bends.
I drive the Scorpion fast, very fast, in this video just to see how far one can go.
Don't mind the ropes and plastic pipes, it's all part of the video trials.

@Jizm: straight lines 103 km/hr (55.6 kts) in the curves 80 - 85 km/hr (43.1 - 45.8 kts)
Without the Power Lift optimized 98 - 99 km/hr which is 52.9 - 53.5 knots.
