Drifting on skidpad in a BRZ at Streets 01.20.2013

Wasn't able to make it to Buttonwillow track day on 01/19, so instead spent 01/20 at Streets of Willow (SoW) test-driving a track buddy's BRZ. Although SoW is where many of us in SoCal got our feet wet, it's just too small of a track for our relatively heavy M3 and, after we discover other/better local tracks, isn't re-visited hardly. But, if you're a track junkie, you'll take anything.

Anyhow, between the unfamiliar (to me) & immensely dislikable (to many) CCW config and the unfamiliar car, couldn't get any rhythm down, so wound up screwing around thru the skipad and making the rest of the lap sections a setup (or, necessary evil) for said shinangans at skipad.

As far as BRZ goes, a light, under-powered car with quick steering and nimble chassis. This car was clearly designed for track-use, but at this point, I prefer my M3. Had I drove it on a different track and if the car had more power, might reach a different conclusion...
