The coupe did well. Brakes were strong, but the pedal got a little long at the end. As this was my first time at MSR I really just wanted to learn the layout but I did pick up speed and figured out where to shift. My Direzza Star Specs has seen two years of autox so they weren't all that fresh, but they did better than I thought. They were loose at the last autox, but they did not seem to have an issue in this much more open/fast course. The car did move around some in the back stretch area around "gut check" and "the launch".

Danny? If you want more practice, BMW CCA is putting on a car control clinic next month that includes a classroom session on car dynamics and then there will be an autox the next day. Not as fast as yesterday, but will help with car control basics. Ill be one of the instructors for the car control school.

Sorry I had to miss it. Hopefully I'll make the next one before it gets too hot.
