Thanks for sharing

Definitely need to get back to Mosport this year. It's been an eternity since I've driven there. Time to head back now that I have a car that will be able to accelerate through the whole back straight .

Mosport was about the first track I drove my new M3 at last year ( as a lowly group C student with the BMW club). Lot's of fun.

I should do it again now that I am able to chew gum and drive at the same time.......

It is called proper track etiquette which I wish more people would adhere to when faster drivers hunt them down.He has around 500 horse & suspension work and his car is quicker in a straight line than my stock M is as you can see in the video.I was running laps quicker in the AM than in the video but my LR tire would not have made it through the afternoon at that pace

That and you can tell he is not pushing very hard (other than some mishifts). If he wanted to pass, wouldn't have been a problem.

The only person pushing at 10/10th's in that video was Rian in the Vette.The guy in the 996TT wanted to follow me to see my lines as I had a lot more corner speed than he did when we ran together in another session.All part of the learning process for him.I had a great time during the afternoon running a much more relaxed pace than I usually try to do.
