Hey, not bad my friend. Not bad at all
I see you made a huge improvement.
If I remember correctly we were in the advanced run group last year at LRP with scca track night and I see a huge difference in your driving.
Now driving at LRP is not scary imo, scary part is when you are facing the wall at almost 120mph (T6) right before the braking zone and taking 90 degree corner without braking at all at more than 90mph (T10) at Watkins glen.
You should definitely try that one soon.
Yes we met last year.
Thanks, I appreciate you noticed improvement.
I have two more days at LRP end of June
The Glen might have to wait until I retire.
Too far at the moment.

1:37.7 - not bad but still not 1:36 :-(
Trackday with the GotTackLi today.
Many Corvettes, McLaren, and Lotus.

Numerous 1:38 laps.

Tires.
Front RR 235/30/19, Rear RR 295/39/19.
Both front and rears are after 4 hours open track at Lime Rock Park.

It sure felt like if I came with a new set I can find 1:36 some where.

Video soon after I process the sessions

The test of the day I had the DSC off
Best lap with DSC off was 1:38.1

The rest of the sessions were 1:38 and 1:39 so I have to say as I continue the rest of the season with DSC off, I will continue to improve my control skills.

Here is turn-1 with DSC off and 1:38.1 lap:

New best time with GotTrackLi the Lotus club.
Chasing McLaren 720s doing three laps under 1:37.

Previous best time 1:37.2 with many laps in the 1:37 and 1:38 in the past two years.

This day I did multiple 1:36 and once 1:35.7 for personal best at NYST
