WOO HOO!

Yep I'll be there. Should be fun. I've been watching video from the last time I ran this course. :eek: What a difference a year makes.

I'll be there. I'm hoping to bring a friend along to ride with me (and other faster drivers), but his wife had a conniption fit when she found out about it. Maybe she thinks it's like Nascar or something. We'll see if he's allowed to join in.

I'm really bummed that I'm missing this, but then again I'll be in Chicago touring the Frank Lloyd Wright houses, so it's not all bad.

Have fun guys!

Tell everyone I say 'Hey!'.

Ugh... After watching this I might need to go back to an instructor. Lines were terrible! I didn't think they were this bad when I was out there!

Not my best lap, but at least this had some action in it. Best of the day was only a 2:37.5.

Doesn't look to bad man... An instructor for a session or two can always help. I wouldn't mind throwing someone in my car that really knows that configuration as well and I'm sure it would help me drop 3-4 seconds pretty easily. Looked over my data this morning and I did a 2:33.5 at some point, have to really looked much into it though. Ill try and get a video up tomorrow if I have time. I figure I should be able to get in the 2:2x.x time frame with some practice.

BTW, looks like Blair posted up the photos from the event, I didnt see anything about the parade laps though.. :( When you get those photos do post them up.

OK Here is my video... Only second time doing this configuration and the 1st time was a year ago when I was in Blue run group. I did much better this time, but still have a lot of room for improvement. Probably could make up 4-6 second a lap with some more practice.

The strange this is this is my first session on Sunday and although my line improved greatly through out the day this was my fastest lap. I think later in the day I was running into more traffic.
