In fairness, the driver was experienced, but new to the Challenge car. He was using this event as a "test and tune" event to prepare for his season next year.
Ferrari orders their run groups a little differently than most clubs.
Red - Full race cars with cages and nomex required.
Blue - Advanced drivers matched with similar horsepower
Yellow - Intermediate to advanced drivers matched with similar skill level and similar horsepower
White - True novices
Because the focus is a lower HP car, I was initially placed in the Yellow group because of concern with overtaking speeds.
I was moved to the blue group after the second session. That was interesting. My lap times were consistent with most of the other drivers, but the power of those cars exiting the corners and on the straights is mind boggling. The only advantage I had was in the tighter portions of the circuit. Otherwise, they just ran away...
