First, awesome job by The Driver's Edge. First DE on COTA and it went flawless on the first day. Or at least the drivers couldn't tell. Track management is VERY happy so far. Seems like this will go a long way to getting more HPDEs at COTA.
What an amazing facility! Your garage has its own bathroom. Complete with paper ass gaskets, nice soft toilet paper and a pretty cute girl who cleans it...about 3 times during the day. So if your buddy decides to finger paint...it won't be there for long. Table cloths on the tables, $6 salads, plenty of paddock space, nice views...everything!
The track? One word...WOW! There are 2 apexes that you turn in for that you can't even see. Kind of like the launch except missing those apexs will put you in a bad place on the track...critical to get them. The back straight is REALLY long. Its neither a HP or handling course...you really need both.
Best lap was a 2:43. So I only have to find another 1:04 before I can surpass Vettel's pole lap of 1:39. When yo think about it...He crosses the finish line 3 times...I'm just finishing up my second. Amazing!
Pics...videos to follow.
It rained in the morning...your car gets extra filthy for some reason.
