Thunderhill in Reverse (Videos)

Had the opportunity to run Thunderhill in reverse yesterday. This was based on a vote after we signed up which I wasn't really happy about at first, but turns out it's a lot of fun! It felt like a totally new track and I also learned a lot about the track that I would never have if I only ever drove in the normal direction. The Elises and Exiges where getting a good 1-2 feet of air going over the bypass. It was pretty amazing to watch.

I also should note that I recently had the new Vorschlag camber plates and RD Sport sways installed at Alekshop. I'm running AD08's at the track and with -2.4 degrees of camber in the front and a stiffer rear bar, the car rotates like a dream (at least compared to before). The car has so much bite in the front when trail braking and the rear feels much more controllable.

Here are a couple videos from the event:

Taking a bad line in one of my earlier sessions results in some fun:

Trying (and failing miserably) to stay away from a really fast driver in an Exige S:

He said he was running around 2:03 in the morning sessions and was aiming for sub 2 seconds.
