I really wanted to run the Club course on Saturday with the turn in at Bishops Bend and eliminating the two long straights between 16 and 1 but my friend wanted me to instruct on the full course on Sunday! Those long straights are boring :)

Only in the Elise!

I drove an RSR there that was capable of low 2s, I think I ran in the teens, it was a nice chance to rest!

Well, the long straights are good to let the brakes cool down! Where was it that someone said they could balance their checkbook on the back straight :)
I have heard that the club course is harder on the tires and brakes and the drivers as well... Makes sense.

The club course is a lot of fun and I'm sure the Elise would be perfect for it, but I just really enjoy the 12hr. It's my favorite track by far. I think the only track in the US that might change my mind is road america. I can't wait to drive it next year.

Sebring this Saturday Aug. 25th.

Homestead with Nasa Labor Day Weekend?

I'm considering which day ... or both. Anyone else going Sept 1 and 2 ?
Going both days (NASA, 1st and 2nd) Although I am still not sure if I am bringing the Lotus..

I just got back from Sebring. I ran with Chin.

I ran new tire pressures in my RA1's. 30/F 32/R cold
Came in at 37 F 39 R hot after 45 min session.

Seemed to have more traction. Did my best to wiggle in the hairpin but stuck
like glue.

I ran 24 /26 cold 33/35 hot before.

Traffic was a problem. I only had 3 clean laps all day.

I was mindful of some recent Elise vs. Track incidents.

Driving careful/scared but home in one piece.

I was there today. I was in the black Elise. I didn't get a chance to talk with you - I wanted to. I talked with the guy who had the S1 Exige a bit towards the end of the day. He seemed like a nice person, also from Tampa. Next time, I will make it a point to meet everyone who is driving Lotus.

#17 ?

The S1 with Honda engine looked interesting. First time I have seen that car.

How did you like the weather? I got wet a couple of times. Cooler temps than last month. I'll post some video when I have it ready.
