Since my track car won't be available for another couple of months, when I heard that GGLC was going to get one of the first 5 mile track days at Thunderhill, I figured I'd look into renting and was told about Dietsch Werks.
As a result, I ended up renting a track prepared lotus from them (lightened, a few extra HPs over stock, and upgraded brakes). I did however select street tires over slicks since I figured I didn't need to learn slicks when I was already learning a new car and a new track.
I ended up flying early that morning just around IFR weather and got to Willows airport where Rob picked me up.
By 09:00, we started our first session, one of 7 30mn sessions :)
there were other bug cars :)
It took me a little bit to get used to the lotus and learn that it was tail happy under braking. As a result, I had to brake and be back on gas before turning for stability in some places.
Learning thunderhill west also took a bit of time, but I worked my way down from 4:10 to 3:44 by the end of the day, so I'm happy enough with that :)
Here is my last session of the day (just to 20:22):
Thanks to GGLC for setting up the event and Rob and Jenni for getting me the car all prepped.
