Track Day (HPDE) Videos

Just cruising through the interweb today and I found this little gem...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fErU5nnKzn8

I also like this one...Bonus, it's an SVTF.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOC255Voe8Y

This is a great Vette vs. Porsche battle between two instructors.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AAZ3gSpXvc

And last but not least, C6 Z06 vs. F-430. Just listen to that F-430 engine.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ec-ZDGjPFfg

Anyone else have a favorite Track Day/HPDE/Hill Climb/etc. video?

I can't speak to the other two, but I was at the Summit event.

BOTH instructors are Very...VERY fast and capable. The Porsche is piloted by a friend of mine named Kenyatta Jenkins. Believe it or not, that car is actually belongs to his MOTHER. She was in the right seat.

The Z06 is driven by Rob ??? and he runs T2 with a team owned by Ed York out of Mt. Airy, MD.

Here is a nice video of a 280hp focus on a track. I like the crappy looking white car in the beginning, because i was thinking it was going to be slow, but uh thats probably the fastest little white crappy car ive ever seen!

You forgot to insert the link to the video.

I however, did not.

I have some video of my track days from last year, and just started to look through them to find some interesting clips.

I did this one a few months ago, it's a warmup lap, and then one @ about 90%
Link to YouTube from NJ Motorsports Park - Lightning Circuit. It's just a few clean laps documenting the layout of this new circuit.

This one is from WGI, and would have been better if the S2000 was really on the ball, we could of had a few good laps. That car should walk a Focus, but it looks like it was bone stock, and he was just laying back in the twisty parts.

Link to YouTube of me harrassing an S2000 @ Watkins Glen

I did have several real good laps running dead even with a guy in a late 80's 300ZX, resonably well prepped, gutted with full race cage etc. It was later in the day, and I ran out of recoring time. You can see the red nissan, behind the S2000 and me at the end of the second video in the still shot.

I'm looking for some critiques on my driving from some of the better road racers, as I'm working hard to get a competition license this year, maybe with NASA or SCCA

I work hard on being smooth, and I think I'm ready to move into HPDE4 and do some more open passing. I could have drove right around this Honda exiting the bus stop into carousel.

I know Spec Miatas run in the mid 2:20's on the long course at the Glen. If I shed about 200 lbs on my car in the right places, and properly dial in springs/cornerweights, I'm sure I could be running at those times. I still have a Full interior, A/C and haven't even relocated the battery on this car yet.

tb1999, it's hard to point any issue with your driving when the s2000 is dropping anchor for each corner. You did look smoothe.

Mid-ohio has a comp school on april 10 for nasa. You need a physical from your doctor and a car that will pass the ccr requirements for racing. Or rent a car. But you still need the h&n and driver suit which most people don't have.
