Unfortunately, I missed the similar day in June as my car's transmission grew some problem the day before the event so it was nice to finally be able to do good on that track day.|
A big thanks again to Nkg for getting my car there again while I flew.
A few F430 scuderias were there
As well as all other kinds
The HOD folks were a bit nervous with my driving: many folks in the group weren't used to driving their cars fast, or had no interest in doing so, which is fine, but that made me look aggressive compared to them, although I was not specifically. The other half was that I wasn't working my way back up gradually enough and was just driving about as fast I felt could. This was kind of the point for me, but at the same time sometimes I overshot the braking zones just a tad, which made the orgnaizers rather nervous, even if I always kept it in check and on the tarmac.
and other kinds of cars :)
Anyway, I just dailed it down a bit, which made them happier and gave me a chance to work on my line, and that never hurts. In the end, I only got my times down to about 2:10, which I guess isn't too bad, but slower than what I've been able to do before. I suppose I was a bit off that day, which may be linked to the fact that I was half sick the day prior.
However, I was also able to use lunchtime to fly my RC plane around the track and take a bunch of mid res pictures (see other post)
this was a slow session, but I got to pass a few cars there, which is good for video (click for vid)
