Talking Some Vids at VIR

Here are a couple of track videos from my trip to VIR. Car did fantastic and really enjoyed the drive there as well, but was purposely turning in a bit early as wasn't really trusting my switch back to OEM brakes The last session of the event had some fun with a Gallardo, great guy, and managed to pull a few 2:18's as we played a bit. Couldn't ask for a better way to end the event, a truly awesome experience. Hope you guys like the vids and yes, I got a bit aggressive with the curbs







Yes, all the videos are from sunday, saturday I was a mess, but Von Zoom showed me the light Great track

I hate it when people share vids of VIR and show me what I am missing

Thanks for sharing. Really do need to make a trip, and soon.

Ditto.

Cool rear camera perspective. Really shows you how you put distance on people on the straights after you get by them. Also shows how close people get to your bumper, like that E30 in a couple of the turns!

Is that a GoPro camera? The image quality is really great. I haven't used one before--is there some feature that makes the camera pivot to follow a certain focal point? I noticed in the Gallardo video that the camera shifts left-right and vice-versa at times.

Looks like you had beautiful weather! Glad you made the trip.

Next stop: The Glen! Do it! It's epic! Just make sure you go in July or August to avoid potential bad weather.

Yeah the GoPro works great and those guys do get on your ass in the turns I always give people a bit of space in the corners and try and close going into the straights (passing zones), but with this group you could pass just about anywhere, but didn't really feel comfortable on the new track. Though some of the view with guys on my ass were awesome though and would love to coordinate with the other footage but I'm not that tech savvy. Really loved the trip and may cut down my total track days in favor of epic tracks/treks as really enjoyed it and think we've got the perfect car for it
