- Avoid full open passing groups even though they may be more fun.
- I do not use timers since I know they will eventually make me push beyond the limit. I have great fun working on a turn by turn basis not pushing hard all the time.
- Spot the hot heads (EASY), give them lots of room and admire their driving prowess.
- Use the pit lane to find space.
- Prefer weekday events
Some of the best advice I've seen in a long time, particularly with "full open passing" groups. If you are considering doing that go racing with SCCA or NASA.
