Good video - thanks.

Next time pull your camera back a bit so we can see the speedo and tach as you move around the course.

Looks like a fun track except for the traffic. The instructor seemed to be pretty helpful. I am surprised he let you drift towards the end.

Coming from Europe, I don't understand the signals for overtaking in the states. Why don't people just use the turn signals instead of waving a hand out of the window (taking your hand off the wheel). Also, why do all cars run with the windows down?

Windows down for ease of escaping in case of fire, or needing assistance from the local track workers. As for the hand signals, I couldn't agree with you more. I've done one track day in Europe (at Spa, not counting two trips to the ring), and to my amazement, I was allowed to keep the windows up, no one asked if I knew how to drive or not, and everyone properly used their turn signals to allow for safe passing. I really preferred it that way.

Interesting. Perhaps the real reason windows are down is so American drivers can wave their arm out the window.

hahha I agree with using your signals instead of waving your hand out of the window, I wish we could have kept the windows up It was pretty hot out and it also slows you down a bit. Thanks for all the comments, hopefully I can track at the Ring all time favorite.
