Looks good. That is one freaking tight course. Did you stay in 1st?

On that run, yes. I had tried going to second, but the only place for it was the first stretch towards the back, just before the tight right hander... and only for a second or two. It was easier for me to bounce it off the limiter a couple times, rather than upshift, brake, downshift and turn hard right. The rest of the course was even tighter, so never needed to leave first.

It was the tightest course I've run, but most of our courses out here are in the 30-40 second range. The only exception is ACU-4... which is coming up in a couple weeks. That will probably be a full minute run, possibly a little more depending on the setup.

If that run was my last, it was a 30.003 raw time. FTD was a Formula SAE car on hoosiers with a low 25. I had fastest on street tires, so I'm consoling myself with that. ;)

I should have also mentioned a big THANK YOU to John Sheally (of Morgan motorsport fame) for the coaching advice on my runs. He's going to take it out for a run or two next time out, and we'll see what the Elise can really do. He'll be doing a write-up on it as well, which I'll post when I have it.

If you're reading this, thanks again, John.
