    Had some fun at NJMP Lightning with my LS2 swapped e36.

    Here are few random laps. After not being with track scene for 1.5 seasons, it's slowly coming back.

    Proper video this time, my last 3 laps at Sonoma Raceway from this past Sunday. Might need some time to process to excuse the low quality.

    Palmer Motorsports Park on May 24, 2017
    Club: SCCA Track Night in America - Advanced Run Group
    Warm @ 71 degrees
    2001 E46 330ci (250hp -- 3100 lbs)
    PSS10s - camber 2.7F/2.2R
    Intake/Headers/Software/3.46 Diff/Hoosier R7s
    Best on the day was 1 min 59 seconds (my best at the track is 1:58)


    * The last lap my gas pedal started coming off, which was frustrating.
    * And then my Hoosier's are done - corded on the outside - also frustrating.

    My third trackday within a month. Time to take a break.

    Unfortunately no speed/overlay because the GPS in my GoPro wasn't working. I'll load it into Harry's Laptimer at some point to get the data.

    Bought some take off Toyo RR (barely feels faster than my NT01 I ran for 5 events and killed)
    new personal best by .2 which is better than nothing I guess

    Very dusty lens. First time to this track, and this layout. PB lap is @ 5:15 in the video.

    Went to Palmer last weekend with the goal of a 2:00 lap, last Octobers best was a 2:07.xx... Crushed it with a 1:58.1 on my first hot lap after being soloed... Next goal is a 1:55.0

    Driving in triple digit desert heat was a first for me. Grip & balance both called in sick.

    That track surface looks terrible. Hardly any curbs or rumble strips either, and just dirt outside the track? I won't be heading down there anytime soon!

    You need to come up to MRLS. Last weekend was the World Superbike Championship. Track surface was immaculate, newly repainted and repaired curbs. So good.

    This past Tuesday at MRLS. 60 cars total, hardly 30 left by the afternoon. Perfect weather and lots of clean laps! Ran out of gas accidentally right after this lap and killed my fuel pump.

    Watkins Glen with SCDA last Monday

    First session, had a hose melt so I lost the next good weather session. Last session was wet so no good lap-times possible

    looking at my line, there is lots of time left to cut

    My first time at Thunderhill 5 mile, cyclone with west bypass. I've done just west before, but 5 mile is very fun. America's longest road course, apparently!

    Nice video, what editor did you use to add the gauges etc?

    The data is recorded from my GoPro Hero 5. I used GoPro's (really shitty) Quik editor to overlay them. The data/gauges work pretty well actually.

    We've all been there, one way or the other. I managed to miss the checker twice (first one was on the back straight) in one of my first HPDE 2 events. Made for an embarrassingly long cool down lap. Thanks for sharing!

    Instead of a c-clamp I highly suggest this.

    Here are a couple laps from earlier this summer at the first NASA HPDE at High Plains Raceway. I have been working on improving my technique, line and times. My previous best on this track and in this car was a 2:14.2. On this day I managed to get into the 2:10's and was really stoked. I have been studying my times and technique on my AiM Solo. I think the Solo combined with driving coaching has really helped.

    Yeah it wasnt great, but it has just been resurfaced in the last month. I do need to make it up to NorCal, but still have a few tracks down here I havent driven yet.

    Forgot my external mic, sorry about that. Still, good video chasing one of my students in his v8 914.
