2013 Camaro 1LE - Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca - May 19, 2013

Hello 1LE'ers. Well, today was a great day. I took a day off work and went back to Laguna Seca. I'll write up more later when I can. Here was my fastest lap of the day (01:59.52), may LAST lap. And our group instructor suggested going 1/10th lighter on the last lap. Hmm. Perhaps this helped. Then again, the track looks empty. More on that later when I update this thread.

Instructor was smart, called the red mist late in the day and he wanted to be sure your car went home shiny. Nice work!!! I go this weekend and can't wait myself. Mostly 3rd gear except tight corner before straight?

red mist = Closely related to testosterone poisoning or "Red Mist" is a term used to describe what happens when a driver (usually a race car driver) looses all sense of reason and "MUST WIN AT ALL COST". from a SCCA forum site.

Roebling Road this weekend, then Watkins Glen and VIR on the return trip. Great to have a car that can get you there and drive it like you stole after you do.

Where did you put your mic? Sounds good on video

Great stuff Brian, you looked much more comfortable on track. It must of been cool going back out knowing you knew the track. Look forward to the rest of the event

Todd, I'm stoked about Thunder West. A new track for all if us to figure out. Glad we are doing two days.

Mark, thanks man. Appreciated. Yeah, knowing the track really helps. Few guys were spinning out (got on video) and going off track. I think some people push too hard the wrong way. Video game prep isn't the same thing as driving the course.

I'm glad you kept it on the track and still went reasonably quick. I think your line is almost perfect. Did the new pads and rotor work help from the last time you were there? Looks like you could get going pretty deep into the post straight corners. haha. I think we surprise almost everyone out there how swiftly we can slow these bruisers down.

I came by and checked out your car(it's the color I wanted). Couldn't hang out was running late. You were in a drivers meeting. How did the ZL1 next to you do?

Hi. Were you in the red camaro? What group were you in?

I pointed nearly everyone by. This was only my third track day, first solo day and first time in B. I was definitely one of the slower cars out there.

The ZL1 (ZL1 Legend on C5) was super quick. He passed me every session.

There was even a red SS out there and a 71 Z28 both of which I had to point by. Call me chicken; I was pushing just not as hard as the others. On the final lap, the video above, I could feel the rear slipping a bit - as Al Oppenheiser says "loosen up the slip and allow you to ring this thing out".

Not driving. I was there all week-end and came back to pick up our trailer. Always better to drive easy than too quick too early and ride home in the flatbed that is towing your car. Seen that plenty of times. Three days isn't much so no worries. One of our drivers just spent three days in a row at Buttonwillow to try and get use to our cars. He had already been thru Skip Barber there a couple times and a few other schools. If I had known there was a track day I'd have shown up at 7.
