Have fun and remember...

KEEP THE SHINY SIDE UP !!!!

One last piece of advice.

Having run on courses with banking, stay in the throttle until you enter the braking zone and the pavement begins to flatten.

If you lift out too soon, the nose of the car tends to dip toward the inside and the rear will start to come around.

That's a pretty scary feeling at speed.

Good luck and take LOTS of pictures and videos!!!
