Lapping day results

Well, what a perfect day for racing it was! There was a lot of serious equipment there... 3 brand new Porche GT3's, lots of older porches, ferrari, 427 cobra, etc... man it was sweet!

I put the bridgestone fuzions on and I was able to gain nearly one second/lap over the conti's. Then after a few more runs I was able to pull off another full second! I found the rear to be shifty and predictable, and the front tires hooked up nicely to pull out of the corners. All in all, a very good tire. Apparently the fuzions are rebadged potenza's - got this from the bridgestone rep.

ahh, I love the SVT... can't wait til next year's build up

Very nice. I'm looking forward to my big weekend at VIR in november. Now that I have more track days under my belt, this time it should be a lot more fun.
