Hallett Personal Best Lap Times..

Recommended Posts

Lol Dave- not entirely ridiculous given that Emilio has driven Crusher into the 23s at Hallett before the repave.

 

Pretty sure it was "only" a 1.25.286, at least that's the video on youtube. That is a very, very well developed car, needless to say.

Holy cow. 1:22 in a Miata? Dang.

I guess being within 0.04sec going both directions isn't too bad...  :)

I've only done a couple laps going CW, but that seemed much more technical. I think my CW lap would be a bit slower than my CCW lap.

 

By technical, you mean "you better know where you're going by heart or you will die if you're trying to go fast"?

They're both very technical, but I never spun going CCW..   Going CW, it's VERY hard to get into turns 9, 6, and 2 properly.   6 isn't that bad but if you're 1ft off line going in, it's going to be ugly.  Tobey/Nismorons can attest to be going by Clark and doing a somewhat spectacular drift-->tank slapper-->spin there.

 

Turn 2 will do some damage if you screw up.  On about lap 5, I watched an E30 come hauling ass behind me into the braking zone and I knew he wasn't going to make it.   he went by me on the right as he was nose-diving into the drainage ditch, then went airborne for the next 20ft or so and cleared the rest of the turn 2 inside curbing before landing on the track and skidding into the grass on the other side.  HOLY SHEEIT!

 

on that note, I remember the track photographer was on that corner shooting.. I bet he has it in freeze frame or slo-mo video..  :D

 

 

about 5 laps later, I got cocky and missed the braking point for the same turn and hit the same ditch sideways.  it de-beaded a tire and I had to go to the pits and change it.  lost a lap or two with that, plus the cost of a new tire.  :(

Matt, unfortunately the camera ran out of memory right before Clark's stint, so I don't have your off. PM me your dad's address and I'll get a TOB to him. And I'll get that fuel pump from you at the next TJ get together or something. I just need it before the December TWS race.

 

It's always nice to have others at an event running the same car. :)

Sounds good. I have your pump in my trailer.  IF you're at MSRH testing or anything between now and then, let me know and I'll bring it to the track.

 

It's definitely nice having another similar car there to help out.  As soon as I said "I think it might be the fuel pump", I turned around and BLAMMO! There was a fuel pump and relay ready to go.  you guys rock!  ...if only I had thought to check the easy stuff (fuse/relay) first vs. ripping the pump out only to discover it wasn't the pump.   we lost 30 minutes with that fiasco and it could have only been 5 or 10.

 

Considering three of the drivers were n00bs to endurance racing, one has only done 2 w2w races, and this was the first w2w race for another, I think we did OK...  I just wish I'd have known they were THAT new before the race- I would have offered more racecraft advice than "don't wreck it!"

I don't know about more technical CW, but (somebody has to say it), it's more dangerous.  Runoffs and flagging stations are in insane positions CW.  You're looking at multiple ditches and at least one concrete bunker.  Frankly, I'm not big on the Friday CW day planned for Miatas at Hallett next year.  I may sit that one out.

Link to post

Yup.. I found two ditches on Sunday.  The first one I thought I had written off one corner of the car.

 

Why it's more technical is because of the entry into T2 going this direction.  It's much more difficult to get right than a hard, straight braking zone going CCW.  AND the penalty when you screw up is higher.

Disregard the "off" at the end of the video. Carried too much speed into 10 and understeered right off track  :tongue: Far from a perfect lap. Spun coming out of 10, bad line and off throttle through 7, missed 3rd coming out of 2... blah blah blah

On 225 NT01's at 159whp/2330#. Had fresh A6's. Still regret not throwing them on. That would have been 23's easy.

My camera bit the dust at this event but I have the times from my old Performance Box.

This time was set during the second Blitz race on Sunday when the air temperature and track temperature had warmed up. I started in the back of the grid (did not race in the first event that day so no qualifying time), and worked my way up, until I had to leave the race from a small mechanical issue. At any rate, I could have dropped another couple of seconds with some fresh tires, and some cooler temperatures, but, couldashouldawouldawhatever, it was fun. I have not raced at Hallett in years, and even then never in a car, so it was great to be back on that track. Love it.
