Second post here and it's about track! I like!

I did plan to head up there...but the weather through grapevine could be bad. Decided otherwise. Don't want to sit in traffic. But do be careful driving to and back.

Went on Sunday. Driving to and from the track wasn't bad. The weather was cold, but clear. My first time at Buttonwillow with the Elise, took awhile to get up to speed and barely got any clean laps. Still a fun and educational day though.

However, in my opinion Extremespeed really needs to raise their safety and flagging standards. I realize keeping track of 30 tracks trying to set fast times is not easy, but their flagging was inconsistent and other groups are able to do it better. I'm also not sure grouping by laptimes is the best way to separate drivers as you end up with some drivers that are courteous while others are downright dangerous.
