Please note, Ivan and Claud have car numbers with a 7 in it. That's because we are both from immigrant backgrounds and are superstitious . No 666 or 13 for us. The Snake on the other hand is an adventurous sole and has number 9 for his car.

Like I said, busy. No wonder we never saw you as we wandered around. Would have loved to have you for an instructor.
I did get a "mini" instructor. Not car, but he was about 5"4" and about 130lbs. Helped me stay ahead of some of those cars--good patient instructor.

to be fair i wasn't in a euro car, i was driving a bunch of hondas so that might have led you to overlook me. hope you had fun, i know i did.

pity you didn't request me, i could have used you as an excuse to bring the wife's 2011 mcs (she loves it so naturally i'm not allowed to drive it). "but honey, my student has the same car and i have to make sure i know how it handles!"

You people and yer damn Mini's!! I want one so bad now I can taste it!!

I had a good time hanging out for a few hours on Saturday... hated to see all the carnage, but at least it seemed to be all cosmetic.

Here's a small sampling of some of the shots I took:

Nice shots, Stacy. Did you happen to be around when my MINI was wound up higher than 5200 rpm and hear the scream? Please note that there is only a driver in the Focus. Its our classroom instructor.

Thanks man... I've got a lot of learning to do though... and I need a longer lens... and more practice in my panning technique LOL.

I probably heard/saw it screaming down the front straight a few times Smile

I had a great time this weekend even if I did put my car into the armco on the out lap the first session Saturday. Oops! But I was able to run the rest of the weekend sans bumper and headlight without issue.

A-ha, that was you. We were wondering what happened to that corner on that E36.

Stacy: Saw you on pit road, looked for you never found you.
Mayja6: Every time I looked for you, you were out on track.
Claud: Thought I located your car, most have missed you each time I came by. Wanted to introduce myself.
JTower: Thank you again for the shift points.

Nice pics everyone.

uploaded videos from Sunday

In the second video I had fun chasing down the Mustang who was actually my instructors green/yellow student that he moved up to blue on Sunday. Fortunately or unfortunately my camera wasn't running for my incident on Saturday.

Joseph nice tidy line! VERY close to exactly what I'm driving in the CRX (and that I talked about in class). The only real difference I could see was I attack the entrance to 11 a bit more. Usually have the right side tires up on the gators to help the car turn.
Seemed as the laps continued you let the car sweep further track left at the 2nd apex at 17/ 17A. Saw that you used the gators at track out many times. I can always tell if I'm on line( and others too!) if they feel the 2 dips at track out.

Great driving!

Ron
