Nothing! Everything to gain and nothing to lose. Be a Hero!

GoPro thinks I should be a hero.

It may be tough for an M3

I think those stick-on CSL splitters and a GTS wing will make it a bit easier.

I'm a lost soul.

Haha, it's a riot for sure. Lot of fun feeling the uphill camber catch the car.


This word, I'm not quite sure what it means?



I thought I'd be ballsy and tried not braking for 8...

I filled my brown shorts somewhere between 9&10.

Probably one of my fastest laps, but I'm not sure I'll get the nerve to try that again.

..  If you don't brake for 8 and still stayed on track between 9 and 10, then you weren't going fast enough!


And just because I'm a shitty driver doesn't make a miata any less slow.

This! I enter into T8 going as fast as I enter into T7 (~112-114 mph on my S13 low boost, right at the rev limiter in 4th). Can't imagine making T9 at that speed.

how about the facilities near the classroom? IIRC, the toilets pictured were shut down during the April PDS, but the ones near the classroom worked.

Its 6:45 in the morning and I had Mexican for dinner last night. I really hope you're right about that.

I'll report back shortly.

EDIT: The classroom toilets are open. Between them and three Turdises, there's eight toilets for several hundred people.

We'll be OK, but I suggest making friends with someone who owns an RV. ;)

Sounds like another target opportunity?   LOL!

 

Note to self:  start locking motorhome doors when out on track...
