Thumbs up June 2013 Sebring International Raceway Videos

It was an awesome weekend with NASA FL at Sebring International Raceway. We ran the 12hr course setup all weekend. It was hot and incredibly humid, but still allot of fun . Went through a brand new set of front XP20s in 7 sessions.

Video of combined sessions to shorten it up


Best lap


Here's a pretty cool one of a corvette spin at turn 17 (no impact with anything or anyone)


And a few pictures

Should be tracking all the way out to the rumbles just don't hook your tires over them or they could hook you into the tires. I have more if you'd like.
Yes, I'd like more advice if you have it, thanks for the comments so far.

Great advice and allot to take in.

Quote:
You're crabbing in early on a lot of turns. Not turning early, just creeping in and hurting your radius and therefore minimum speed.
You're absolutely right here, tend to do this allot and not just at this track.

I don't think you need to compromise turn 10 as much as you are. Try and rolling more momentum thru the turn--there is plenty of track out in the subsequent left turns.
Will try next time out (making notes)

Not going to re-quote everything (you know what you wrote) but will def make note of it and try next time out. Thanks for taking the time out and providing the feedback.

Don't drive the car away from the edge of the raod until actual turn in. I don't think you need to compromise turn 10 as much as you are. Try and rolling more momentum thru the turn--there is plenty of track out in the subsequent left turns. Turn 3 I think you could turn a little earlier and pinch the radius less to roll more speed. Turn 5 I like your line. That is a turn a lot of people turn early for and have to wait for power, but you seem to be doing it well. I can't see the right side of your car, but putting your right front tire on the right corner of the concrete patch is a good reference point for a nice late turn in that allows for smooth early power delivery and speed down to the hairpin. Looks like you're doing that. Turn 15, I like to carry enough speed that I get the car up on the apex curbing and it will float all the way out to the track out curbing. Then I start thinking about getting the car settled down for turn 16 to make sure I get a good shot down the straight. Turn 16, try and be full power when you come back onto the asfault and make sure youre hitting the apex. That way you know you'll get a good run down the longest straight. Turn 17, try and have the car rotated earlier so you're perpendicular to the bridge as you pass under it. Don't be afraid to track out all the way! General stuff: harder initial brake and trail off the brake as you approach turn in to get a more stable platform. Cary a little brake as you turn in and the back will step out nicely and the car will rotate. Settle the car by rolling into throttle and power thru apexes.
