Track: The Ridge Motorsports
1:55.10 (HLT) - 7/16/19 - Same setup as above. RS4's on their 7th day and still going strong! Got a few mostly clear laps following a ZL1 1LE with 305f/325r Supercar 3R's and managed 3 '55ers in a row. Luckily he was slow enough to give me motivation to keep up.

Track: The Ridge Motorsports
1:54.47 - 7/26/19 - 9th day on RS4's (~1200 track miles total now). Managed to do a couple 1:54's with nobody to chase somehow during the first session of the day, then boiled the tires and had a lap of multiple big slides at almost every exit. Also, got some pad fade and cooked my PS fluid (no PS at all at idle after sessions), and then couldn't manage to go faster than high 1:56 for the rest of the day after the track started heating up.

Impressive! My personal best at the ridge is a humble 2:06.

I've only been to Pacific twice but enjoyed it both times. February and 32 degrees 🤣. Eight foot ice puddle on the back straight. That front straight/corner 1 is a lot of fun!

Dude - I'll see you there tomorrow! Hope it doesn't rain. Your Ridge times are looking good also, I think my best is a high 1:53 or low 1:54 - something like that. And I know there is a lot left coming into both turn 1/2 as well as the carousel.

That sounds terrifying. It's totally dry today though. Turn 1 and 2 are pretty awesome, and this track is pretty epic in general.

Ah man I can't tomorrow. Tapped out on time for the week! Weather looks perfect for you tomorrow though!

5000 mustangs haha. Turn2 is running the Mustang Ride and Drive event at Pacific, so I brought my M3stang.

Managed a 1:35.91 following a GT350, but there was slow traffic for us almost every lap. Enjoyed the track a lot though. Turn 1 at 145ish is quite thrilling pulling into that wall and then braking for turn 2, and all of the bumps make it very interesting. I'll definitely be back and do the proformance driving school at some point. Pretty annoyed that the track workers took it upon themselves to end the day 40min early and steal B and C groups' last session though.

Pacific looks like fun with some areas looking like the ‘ring.
