I just got back from my first ever (car only has 2900 miles) track (Summit Point) day with my 1LE and it was, no exaggeration, FANTASTIC!

My normal track car is a 1996 BMW M3 with full suspension and Toyo Proxies. The 1LE was a dream to drive. I am really impressed. One more day to go, can't wait. Weather was just perfect and tomorrow is supposed to be even better.

I'm just getting the bug for road courses and that would be sweet to have that stuff. I currently have a Gopro hero2 and just ordered a mic for it as I was unsatisfied with the audio.

You sure passed a lot of cars. Was that the same white car, where you mentioned he came up to later, and said "what's the hurry" lol I'm racing, what do expect? Good vids man, and thanks for posting.

Damn. Chevy should be ecstatic about this. You have a stock 1LE and you're showing nearly everyone on that course who's boss. You're a darn good driver, Mark! It looked like you passed a Lotus and a couple Porches, no?

Meant to ask you, did you follow the brake burnishing instructions before racing?

Also, did you upgrade the brake fluid before racing?

Thanks,yeah i was only passed by one car the whole day and that was the ZR1 which there is video of,i didnt let him get away though,its in the 1st set of videos i posted.I got passed by one Porsche in i think the 1st or 2nd session,but got him back the next session.The Lotus i got as well,and just like the guy in the mustang the Lotus driver came up to me after words and commented how fast i was,considering i have never been there before,and no one passed me, guess i did pretty good.Brian, you are going to love this track in your 1LE, a little advice since now i know.I was doing too much shifting since i was learning the track,we have enough torque in our hot rods that once you exit turn #4 stay in 3rd you dont need to downshift to 2nd in #4 and #5 if you watch the video you will see im only in 2nd for a small time,it will help your times if you stay in 3rd.No i just ran the stock brake fluid,and yes i did the brake burnishing about a month before track day,man it takes a lot of time and needs to be done early in the morning with very few people on the frwy.
