PCA @IMS. Had a lot fun passing all those Porsches
Nice driving! Was that a new Honda Civic Type R?
Yes it was. Not a fan of the design. Too busy looking with all the "aero" bit
Yea it's a mess from a design perspective. Nice to see someone actually taking it to a track though!
Sonoma Raceway during the NorCal Shelby Mini-Nats. Chasing down a Triple Yellow R and a Comp Orange GT350 running R suspension and OEM R carbon fiber wheels. Only performance mods I have are R-Spec Project 6GR wheels and OEM PSC2 tires. I got a little carried away as soon as I passed the yellow R and came into turn 4 too early. Put my left 2 wheels into the dirt. Pulled it into the pits to calm down after that one.
That looked like fun. Where did you mount the outside camera?
I mounted it to my front tow hook. I have the ZL1 Addons with an optional GoPro mount. This was my first time using it and it's pretty good! I was surprised at how little vibrations there were. I used a Hero4 so it doesn't even have any image stabilization. It's a little tilted to the left but that's an easy fix.
Since the Mustang is down, I'll just have to post my ST till it's back up. At least I'm racing something lol.
First time at Mid Ohio. We drove with the chicane configuration. Beginning to learn the nuances of this very challenging track. I ended up with some laps in the 1:40's with some rain. This is a high speed, high committal track that I am counting down the days until I visit again. Much like Grattan Michigan, I feel like there will always be tenths of a second waiting to be uncovered throughout the track no matter how many times you have visited. I feel like I found the rhythm as this session progressed with my faster lap times coming in the second half with no traffic. Also I thankfully resolved my ongoing GoPro audio issues, enhancing the viewing experience. Tires are 305/680/18 Pirelli DH slicks.

You do Man Swiss Boss!
Thunderhill 5 mile
Playlist of all my quick laps. All but one (at the time of this posting) are lap records.
Met a nice Porsche guy at Mid-O and we got some footage back and forth. He was a bit quicker than myself but we were close all day. It's cool to see the different lines and strengths of vastly different cars. Judging from this video, I have plenty of room for improvement but it was my first time there so it is to be expected. Skip ahead to 2:00 when tires start to warm

Buttonwillow 13CW last weekend with Speed Ventures. Racing the the turbo Supermiata in S1 so I only did one session in the GT350. Finally got a clean lap without traffic then bobbled the last turn. Drat! Tires were a bit too hot by then. Still a 1:59.7 in 80* weather. Guessing a clean lap on cooler tires in cool weather would be a mid 1:57. Bone stock here. R splitter and wing, DSC shock controller, 305 RS4's all here and waiting to go on. We'll go back in a a few weeks and see what it will do.
Was out at NCM giving some ride along/hot laps and also got some external footage!
You got the radio on?
My kinda guy there!

There are some tricky spots on that track, well executed.

NJMP Thunderbolt from December 2015, no chicane. Not my best time, but it's the earliest video I have any datalogging for. My avatar pic is taken from this file.
