I hadn't yet gotten the chance to drive my racecar at Laguna. Sound limits are of course a problem. A 105db day sounded like a great idea. It was cheap enough that I rented 2 spots, one in race cars, and one in advanced group, both with open passing.
As luck would have it, I still got blackflagged for pulling a 106.3db, which thankfully got fixed by turn pipes that I had, but hadn't been installed on the car. This got fixed quickly. Some very nice cars were present.
The morning was overcast:

Thanks to my coach, I got down from 1:40:xx to 1:32:xx on a couple of laps after fresh tires. On the better morning track, the car could have been faster still, but it sure was hard to find clean laps.
This was a long day for me since I got 7 sessions of 2x20mn, or over 4h30 of driving with just 20mn breaks in the middle. I was quite tired by the end of the day, but was still able to get close enough to fastest laps around the last sessions, until I had to get off the track due to a car that caught fire.
Here is my best lap where I did a 1:32.x, my best laguna time so far, and it wasn't even a clean lap as I had to pass a car (in the Mclaren 650S, I only got down to 1:40.x). My car can likely do 1:30 or even a bit lower:
ETD had a photographer that did a great job getting nice shots of me. Thank you for those. A few below:
Sadly, a nice Mclaren caught fire during the last lap. My guess is that a fluid leak hit the exhaust:
