    Here's my third run. Second lap was my best for the day at 1:34.7 I think.

    Hey @GregC, did you see a checker on that run? I never did but I slowed down because I thought you must have seen one!

    Can't believe how soon the day was over, I think it was only about 2:30 at that point. Great job to the organizers and marshals.

      I have to admit that I didn't see a checker; not that wasn't necessarily there, but I'm not used to scanning for that color of flag. My lap timer shows completed laps so I knew I had my runs in, but I've only got a half dozen OTA events under my belt and I guess I need to practice my flag spotting.

          Thanks! I'm in GT2 this year, and the car handles very good right now, but after running this weekend, I think there are still a few changes to be made! I'm running a 6-pt harness on the car which helps cope with all the G-loads

            Was at the school on Saturday with the wife (WRB BRZ and black S4), we both learned a lot and fun at the same time.

            Usually I get out and shoot some pics along the front straight in between sessions but didn't get a chance at all... so if anybody took any photos on Saturday let us all know!

              I will join in with my less than ideal video. I not only turned the Gopro on for one run, but it was my slowest of the day(I tried staying in 4th gear through turn 3) and the positioning isn't very good. Fail lol

                    Dave was right, you really don't brake for turn 1

                      Turn 1 is where most of passengers looked uncomfortable.

                        Do you know roughly how fast you are going through turn 1 at? Looks to be around 4-4.2k rpm in 4th.

                          Not sure but around 135-140km/h I would think.
