I'm going to BW for the speedventures 26/27 event.
Will be a good test for my new mister cooling system install.
Looking like 100F+ nothing like a good sweat...

Been there, done that. After about 3-4 laps it feels like a an oven door was opened and blowing hot air into my helmet making it unbearable to focus on going flat out. Then the thought of "when is this season going to be over" sets in.

I was at BRP the first day after they redid cotton corners and it was aweful. Sliding all over the place and several cars went off which I barely managed to avoid.

Yeah, it's gonna slippery out there until there's enough rubber laid down on the track. So going in the fall should work out nicely....cooler and not as slippery.

Ya, I'll be there in blue e90. Looking forward to run with you Cali guys,
will be my first time at BRP.

Looking forward to put down some HOT laps...
Last time I did 100 degrees session was at Spring Mountain, I've never
drank that much water in my life, seemed like I was taking a leak every 10min.
It was really hot but I had a blast. I'm from AZ so the heat is less of a big deal for me,
however the car is a different story. Hoping that my new mister system keeps
limp mode away.

The new pavement looks sweet! See you there!

Cool. It would only let me sign up for green so I'll start there and see if I want to move to red. Depends on whether the typical dive bombers are in the red tomorrow.

im in black but if it gets crowded and if there is traffic i will go to green during the day.

somehow either the fast drivers have already jumped to green or have retired from track days because black group seems to be getting slower and slower (ior a wider range of lap times) than i've remembered.

but i'll tell myself i've been getting better and better

This is too bad when it happens but it usually starts when slower cars make things difficult. Let's all be safe tomorrow and have fun.
