First race @ New Hampshire Motor Speedway

OK, this is not a very impressive video, it was cut short @ 6:30 after only about 4 laps.

I'm having a hard time learning this track, the car is performing well, I'm just struggling with some very challenging elements. Turn 3 is a killer, and the uphill blind approach to a downhill "mini corkscrew" is not for the feint of heart.

But I did eventually learn how to blast into turns 1 & 2 with no brakes only lifting slightly, then back to full throttle for the second half of this big sweeper, hitting about 95MPH mid corner @ 1.5G's lateral load. (as per the traqmate info)

I'll redo this video after I download the data and synchronize the video.
