  • And to think I almost failed my academy for the Driving testing



    My best time of this day was 2:16.4, which is enough to put me in the middle of a race grid when I get my race license. This wasn't even my car (it's my brothers, his has all the telemetry gadgets, otherwise I wouldn’t know my times). My car was lent out to a friend.

    Yes, there are some sprinkles, but not enough to be any concern.

      He's in a Miata. Not positive, but believe its a 1st gen.

      Nice run SVC-Sop obviously much better then when you did your academy test haha! Which track is that? Was it a NASA event? Miata is running pretty strong as well is it N/A?

      Edit: Sorry just saw title, Thunderhill I'm assuming. Looks like a nice track!

        Yes, Thunder Hill in nortern CA. Yes, NASA event, I'm running HPDE-4. Yes First Gen Miata (1993). There is nothing left that can be done to this car for the Spec class (a fresh motor might help). We pick up our cars at insurance auctions or from folks that just abuse them. All we want is a stratight tub.

          Very nice, seems as the motor is still pretty strong on it now. Still nice run though!

                Oh this activity has given me an absolute respect for speed and laws of physics.

                20 years ago I would do silly things like go 70mph in FIRST GEAR on my Ducati, and red lined in 6th gear down a stretch of open highway. I look back on that now and realize I'm 1) lucky no one ever saw me do it. 2) never crashed, and died.

                by the way:

                I’ve noticed now that I quasi race and do track days that I’ve opened up my distances between vehicles to the effect I know I have the time to react to a catastrophic event that pops up in front of me. I’ve had it happened on more than one occasion. Deer, coyotes and pheasants still to cross the track from time to time. All one can do is hold the line and step on the gas.

                I’m fortunate enough now I know how to make a car stop FAST, and know just what traction limits feel like.
