Seneca Falls army depot is definitely unique with the concrete and asphalt sections. You 100% have to account for surface when figuring out your line/plan.Looks like some nice runs. Did you feel there was more grip on the concrete section? On the Day 1 vid, you get loose after going back onto the asphalt, like you had gotten used to the concrete gip level and didn't recalibrate when you left it.
When I walk a course, I'll scuff my sneakers across anything that looks like a change in surface to see if I can feel a change in grip. That sometimes gives me a clue I can use on the first run.
unfortunately the mistake you saw in the video (albeit a large one lol) was the result of me getting greedy and forgetting the plan based on the surface. We had drying conditions in the morning on day 1, by the time I got to the 3rd run I was pushing the envelope to see where I could find time. With the increased grip from the drying course, especially the concrete section, I overestimated how much traction the car had heading onto the asphalt… things got loose real quick
luckily I saved it and kept pushing for the rest of the run, resulting in my fastest time of the day. But hindsight being what it is, I can help but wonder how my overall pax would’ve shifted with a faster run on day 1
there’s always next year! Lol
