Yes you, Kevin and Eldon are all right and it boils down to me being inconsistent from not knowing the track well enough.If I have my orientation correct, then this is Roller Coaster right before the downhill section. I agree with Kevin and Eldon in that you over rotated the car. It's hard to tell if you were still on the brakes or lifted while on throttle. You do want to track out there as it sets you for the esses and allows you to get on the power.
Some VIR vet's from local club send me 6-7 videos that were very good that I had watched in the two weeks prior to that event. Unfortunately my memory is hit or miss and there's no substitute for the real thing for developing muscle memory.something to think about going forward. When I go to a new track I will watch videos, draw the track, look at track maps and most importantly, drive the track with my eyes closed including where and when I expect to be on and off gas and brake and when I will shift as close as I can.
Great but I was focused on learning the track and technique and waved as many by to have clear zone as much as possible. More often than not I was too low of a gear and using up that midrange that the fastworks tune gave. I think it surprised my instructor with the power.How did the Elise feel powerwise at VIR with your setup?
Yup that's where I made my mistake but then again recognizing and learning from your mistakes is what this is all about. Off camber turns I find are the most challenging for me to learn.I think that's turn 14. You can trailbrake a bit, but you need to be off the brakes and scrub all of your speed by the apex. Looks to me that your line was a little off (looked like too late on the apex) as you want hit the apex earlier to setup for T15. Is off-camber on that section and, yes, it is challenging corner. I've seen plenty of cars go off there. Heck, I've seen lots of cars go off on many parts of VIR, including mine
Glad you missed the wall!
