I kow thats right, but you will be surprise of how many personal trainers aren't in shape.

LOL! My addiction won't last long. Expecting a baby will soon put an end to that.

Here is my latest!

Lol...Cresson is a tough track. Wagon wheel is a total PIA. A good time for the first time there.

What's weird is the 1.7cw is very different.

During the driver's meeting...Simon raises his hand..."Excuse me! Do I have to point on coming traffic by?"

Thank you for making me feel better about myself haha

This was my 3rd track day.

I agree, I felt it was much harder than msr Houston, which was the only track i had driven on to this point. Much more technical, took me a while to figure out my braking points and lines.

What was your best lap there? Or maybe for my egos sake, I don't want to know?

Lol...best lap was 1:27:06 with no traffic going CW. The lap times should be similar either direction. I had no traffic for about 5 laps which helps tremendously

10 seconds off

unfortunately i cant come up with 10 seconds worth of excuses

thats a really good time, you are clearly a much better driver than me, but that gives me something to shoot for!

looking forward to meeting some of you at the tracks in texas some of these days. i have quite a few events scheduled, so hopefully some of you will be there.

There are 2 places where you can get big gains. Big bend...less brake and an early apex will yield a big gain in exit speed. Wagon wheel...I go through there really hot, and unsmooth brake jab and trail the brakes up the hill to slow and rotate the car. I wouldn't try those right away...keep it in the back of your mind.

Also ricochet is flat out both directions. No lift.
