    @Slib.....you were FAF! That car is impressive, and the driving wasn’t too bad either ;)....I never did get the chance to come over and scope it out. Apart from being very fast, the car also seemed very well sorted. Have fun with that car. What series/class do you run?

    Not sure T's insurance company would appreciate it but at least @Slib was FAF, he flew past me when I was on track.

    @CSL - I've had this car since new, made changes through the years and sometimes run in NASA TT series. The Griggs chassis is very well sorted and it's an absolute blast to drive. The Aluminator XS really brought the car to life. I don't get to take it out as much as I'd like to but it's classed for TT1 in current trim.

    Damn, I’ll say. In watching the video I can tell it’s a confidence inspiring ride despite the crazy speed you’re carrying. Very well done.

    Whew, that was close. We were talking during the track walk about how a car was eaten there at the track day last Friday. I’m surprised the stability control didn’t catch you in time. Even in track mode, it will subtly intervene to mitigate stuff like that from happening. Glad you and the car are all good.

    Well guys, the track day was a huge success. Lots of great cars, great people, and most importantly everyone went home safely. No crashes, no tows, and no ambulances. I just wanted to say thank you to all that attended, The Ford Performance Racing School, Thunderhill Raceway, Matt Visser, Robert Gluckman Photography, my brother Daley, and Jim Lunz for taking me out in his GT4! If you attended then drop a photo...… or 10.

    Outstanding event Terrance and great meeting alot of new faces. Was a definite road trip but well worth it. Thunderhill was a blast to run once I was able to learn the track.

    Yeah, it's an Olympus ME-51S hooked up to my rear mounted GoPro Hero4. I mounted the mic on my rear license plate and covered it in foam to get rid of the wind noise.

    Good times indeed! Can't wait until the next one.
