Gingerman !0/20/12 and some MMMMM"s

Had my last event of the year this past weekend and had a bit of a mini M meet to boot. Great looking bunch of cars and a good bunch of guys who took a bunch of pics so hopefully we'll see some of those here. Still have yet to be at this track under nice conditions, maybe next year, but did manage some semi-dry laps and felt like I left on a high note. Going to be a long winter







Won't see the track for almost 7 months now, I'm going to go crazy

Nice. Sorry that I missed you guys. Held out for Sunday and the certain dry conditions.

Pretty packed on Saturday? Seemed like almost 30 cars/run group Sunday, 1/2 of which appeared to be piloted by drunks. It was a disaster. Saw more black flags in a couple sessions yesterday than in my entire tracking life.

Awesome guys! I was there Sunday afternoon running race group in a beat up red s2k with stickers all over - chasing down Vettes and Vipers . Saw a few e9x guys out there. Let us know when you guys are going out again - maybe we'll bring the shop car out

*edit* Video from said s2000:

I've got some nice vids, including lambo, and ferrari fly-bys in the straights. Will upload and post them up as soon as I have the time. Love the red S2k in the race group!

Sunday looked like ideal conditions, I chose poorly.

Here's one of my average runs (1:50) Most of my sub 1:50 runs were in the morning @ 40 something degrees. No sense posting that. This is more indicative of what the car was doing repeatedly in the afternoon 55-60 degrees. I have more vids, and will be posting them soon, including one of me going head to head with a GT2, and Lamboghini. Got the lambo, but got hurt by the GT2.

Bummer you couldn't make it out man. It was cold and windy as hell if that makes you feel any better…

Not to rub it in, but here are the day's highlights.

Arrived at 8:30 and this was this scene --



So I had the place to myself until about 10:30!

Perfect opportunity to go DSC off and let her loose. Improved my previous best by over a second.



Sorry for the horrendous iPhone vid quality (shaky 480p ). I have a GoPro 3 in my future I think.



Nice collection of cars showed up for the afternoon. The black GTR was a Switzer 8 million or something. Had a ride -- absolutely wicked machine.





If it's another mild winter Gingerman will open for some days with enough interest. I'll post if I hear anything. Hope to see you guys out there.

Thank you! I think I know where I could shave a few tenths. Doing so without excessive risk, not sure about that. Need some cornering mods!

We know Gingerman pretty well. I instruct there pretty often. I see a few places in your video where you could pick up some time out there. If you want some specific help, email me at austin@gtmotoring.com and I can walk you through what I might do to improve your line - no use cluttering up the thread.

Let me know if you need help with set up as well.

Thanks,

Austin
