I'm not going to Mosport tomorrow either (dont think Shizzle is either for that matter)

Too bad you couldnt make it. Was a really good day and the last session of the day was fun working my way through traffic.

Few of the guys stayed and ran today too, but wanted to make it back at a good time so left after breakfast.

Seriously though, turned out to be a great day. Good group of guys and a bunch of nice cars. A certain rental mustang had a bit of an off which was entertaining as there was no damage (just to the wet sod!).
The weekend started super ugly. I managed to get a flat in the middle of nowhere going to the track, and the rain was pretty bad Saturday morning. But by the second session we had a dry line and my friend who came up brought my other set of wheels.

This track day had everything! Corded tires, a wheel falling off, Mustang ballet (no one could go off with more style!), a few other offs and there was some amazing driving in between. Today was funny too. A Z06 went off in front of me at 14 just like the Mustang and I almost went off cause I was laughing so hard!

^ You were really flying! From your lines I can already see a few things that would shave a few seconds off my laps. The double-apex line through temptation really is a lot faster, and through 12 the tight line is definitely faster. ALM3 showed me the same line line through 12 the next day, and I closed in on the Viagra Yellow GT3 super fast. Your line through 14 is much tighter than mine. I really struggled to get power down through there, my car just loves to oversteer there.

Here are a few of my laps from the Sunday.

^ Nice vid! You were getting around really good. Such a fun track. Not having been there for a couple of years it takes time to get your bearings again. Wished I would have stayed for Sunday but wanted to get back. I was going fairly good, but you can see i was lifting and braking early to conserve my brakes (was too lazy to put my track pads in and my rears are pretty much done). I could have carried more speed through a few corners for sure. In an earlier session with no traffic and pushing harder I was 4-5 secs a lap faster. That session was fun as I really made my way through a bunch of cars. Had to trim the video as it was too long for youtube.

I think we should plan to go there for Oct 22nd weekend as well!

Great progress from the previous event! Seems like a lot of fun - I feel bad for not being able to come out.

LOL @ "viagra yellow" - I did not know that there are generic GT3s

It would have been great to have you out there! As for October, it'll be a last minute call for me. We're now entering one of our busier parts of the year at work.

Yup, there are GT3 and GT3RS. And on that note, you better make a move on one - you've already been bumped down on the order list at Downtown by one

Shizzle was saying you are embarrassed that you are so slow that you dont want to go to the track anymore. Heard you were trading in the M3 for a Prius so you could save money while being a hero and saving lives.

Unlike Shizzle I didn't have to buy a new car to be quicker, or should I say slower in his case......

I'm just jealous though.

Wow, Mike, this is a really good time for stock M3! Cudos. Who showed you the lines? How are the pads working out for you?

That is a good time! Times seemed like they were faster in the morning as the track was drying up. I was 4-5 seconds faster earlier in the day. Mostly since I wasnt lifting and saving the brakes as much.

I realized after I was also running with the a/c on all day which probably didn't help my fuel consumption! I was going through a lot more gas than Al!

Thanks Max!

Learned my lines over the years from various guys including Duncan, still need to work on some of the corners for sure, but overall it felt pretty smooth.

The pads were great, much more confidence braking hard and no sign of fading, etc. I installed the shims off your old pads along with lots of that purple goop and so far hardly any noise on the street.

Thanks Jay. Yeah my times were not as good in the afternoon either, think both I and my tires were getting tired. I'm getting four new PSS tires installed today.

Cooler temps earlier in the day probably helped us too. You are right though as the day progresses I think people get tire and certainly start to take it a little easier, especially the last session of the day.

I am sure you will shave more time off next time you make it back there!
