Each phase is 1 day. I did phase 1 on Saturday and phase 2 on Sunday. I am still completely wore out!
But I am still running courses in my head like they taught us. Every time I close my eyes I see racing lines and feel the G-forces. Going back through every course that I have run in the past couple years and re-driving them in my head with everything they taught us. I'm almost embarrassed at how I drove some of those courses now, even when I placed highly or won my class...
Day 2 was totally mental, and that's what is sticking with me the most. They let us walk the course 1 time in the morning, then swtiched the layout every few runs through the day, and each time we had to drive it mentally before we went out. With them showing us how to think it through right, not only did we not have a single off-course all day, but we all forgot that we hadn't been walking the courses at all! Honestly, it felt like I had already run those courses for real by the time I got out there for real. Amazingly useful stuff. I feel like I will be able to keep racing all winter in my head and not lose my edge!
Don't waste another minute waiting on parts, or anything else. Just get out there and start racing! You will suck at first, and you will be slower than many other cars, but the only thing you will regret is not starting earlier...
