VIR Sept 9-11

A real nice 3 day event at VIR, sponsored by TZC Sport Car Club. Open track for one day and a HPDE school on the other two days. It provided a lot of opportunity for students to gain seat time and instruction. The open track offered me the time to put the M3 to its pace on really the first time at the track to test the rims, tires, and brakes. It took some back and forth to get it close to right.

Two videos, one with a student to experience the line at speed after three sessions of instruction. Point bys were provided to following cars to allow slower speed to demonstrate the proper line. The other video is testing tires with my friend seating in the passenger seat.
