2x same here...I can't handle those 100+ sessions even though my car can. I remember at Chuckwalla for he PCA SD event I was sweating my arse off wishing the session was over soon.

Cool suit would have only marginally helped because the air blowing into my helmet was hot and made it hard to focus.

I did Buttonwillow last year in July when it was 110+....never again! I want to head up to Thunderhill for the PCA GGR event in 2 weeks for the new 5-mile course but it's going to be 105+ up there which makes me not want to go.
