Ran yesterday, Sunday May 16th.
Raining like heck all day!
(believe me, this is not normal for us)
I ended up 2nd OVERALL
out of 30+ cars.
Best time of day was an Audi TT at 1:46.2.
Mine was a 1:46.3. I got beat by 1/10 of a second!!!
Good ole Suby Wagon, with a WRX engine had
fast time, till the Audi and I put him to rest.
I left the TC on, and let it "do it's stuff".
Boy did it STICK.
Point it, hit the gas, and GO!
This was my first trip to our local track.
It's a testing area for the Highway Patrol, and the City Police.
Banked turns, elevation changes, just TOO cool!
It's about as close as I'll ever get to real
road racing at this point in time.
It was SO much fun spanking the Vettes, Camaros, and Stangs.
Their power was no help at all yesterday.
I had a little "off" on my best run.
Dropped the RR off the pavement, but it popped me right back in line once it hit.
All I could think of was, "my wheels...oh no"!
Fortunately, I only had to dig a couple weeds out of the rim and I was good to go.
The wife was also along on that run.....
"Nice recovery, babe." "Well, thank you!"
Looks like I need another helmet now.
We may become a 2 driver team.
On a side note....
I don't know how Continental did it, but these tires are quite "grippy" in the rain.
I was very surprised, considering there's virtually no siping.
