Damn it - looks like it turned out to be an incredible day! I got stuck at work last minute so had to skip the second day - I guess that means I can justify another couple of days off for track days - I'm thinking the 12th and 24th at Mosport.

Nice vid! Is that car electric? I cant hear anything...

You can easily shave a few seconds from your lap times with little effort!

Looking forward to CMP!

This is video from the Porsche. Didn't change the link. I think the camera is picking up sound from all the other V8s on the track....

I've got to admit, there's two things I miss about the M3. The steering wheel and the growl of the V8 at 8400RPM!

The curriculum has changed in the last two years. It is now the technique of Fast In, Fast out. And since they have did these changes, no major incidents at their events.

Mosport needs a few repairs.
Turn 1's turtles are so damaged
Just before turn 5... There is a patch of asphalt all ripped up
Turn 5b ( or 5c ) : part of the asphalt is lifting on the left side near the last turn in cone.
Turn 10 ( last one ) is in such bad shape...

Anyways we were flying out there. Jgalaxy did just under 1:39.
And I did 1' 40'' 48... I did a few in the 1' 40''s . Very happy with my progression.

I am hearing from a source in the know that that there will be repaving taking place before the winter as they are closing earlier this year.

Sounds Great!
1:42, I'm pretty sure even the Z WEAPON's time is faster than that.

No. You find you mainly use the rumble strips and turtles. Very little of the actual track.

Those are fantastic times with the Z4M and NT01! How many days did you get out of the tires?
