What you said, I said, then I said what you said?

I can see your point. Before I got on track, I did think of T3-9 as one complex. After driving it, I don't think you'd talk about turns 2-9 together for any reason other than passing zones for a DE.

Keep in mind they were still working out the passing zones which were 1-2, 10-11, 11-12, 12-13, 18-19, 19-20, 20-1. I definitely think T5-6 could and will be an advanced group passing zone in the future. Surprisingly T15-16 wasn't a passing zone but T12-13 was. The hardest one to take a pass in was 18-19.

I'm in corvette hell! Yeah, the corner workers are impossible to see unless they have a flag out. They blend into the fence for the most part.

I just washed my wheel wells...it was absolutely disgusting. My rag was black from one wheel well. It looks like I've been driving through a snow blizzard for the past day.

NB: "This is a mother**ker" is indeed the approved FIA term for a series of corners! LOL! Who knew?

My best lap was a 2:43. I'm only 1:04 seconds off Vettel's pace in this video...he's in my sights!

Do you know who the dude in the Silver/Grey-ish corvette was? I thought they weren't inviting scrubs to this event...

That was some pretty Green-Group holdup behavior there.

I understand that the 2014 Corvette will have rear view mirrors installed as standard, as opposed to the current model, where it is installed as an option.

so true. The kind of annoying part is I made eye contact with him in his sideview before entering a passing zone. Oh well...it was fun chasing him and it builds character.

Well...there's a BMWCCA event Jun 7-9. Check out motorsportreg for details. I think registration nationwide opens up Jan 28th. Might be some spots left. Supposed to be 225 spaces each day.

135 student spots per day. If people are expecting spots to be available when registration opens up to all CCA members outside the Texas chapters...I wouldn't be holding my breath.
