Phil has 10x more track miles and operates at a much, much higher level. He's got Titanium Balls! His car is also not his daily driver anymore

Thank you sir!

It takes a good bit of car to break 1:40 on the full course. I THINK the fastest lap ever by a "classed production car" was a 1:38.3 in a 997 Cup car driven by a pro driver... 'er atleast that was the story floating around the pits. If so, I just edged him out with my 38.1... That said, I'm sure that rumor isn't correct, and there's some other nutso production car that has done better (but in what class, I dunno!). That 38.1 is certainly a decent time to be sure. Looking at my data, there are plenty of places to improve by a good margin. Best theoretical lap on AIM was, well... embarrasing... lol... but we may be nearing the limits of my abilities! We're back there in October when the weather will be cooler and dryer-- looking forward to see what can be done then!

Honestly, the best part of the weekend was the Lotus sweep the three of us pulled off. I doudbt there will be many times that we will have 3 Lotus at one event, in 3 classes, with 2 course configs, and 6 lap records set all by Lotus!
