Spring Showdown with NASA!
The races were pretty fun. My main competition broke on Saturday morning before the race even started so that left me to race with a rookie who had never been to Summit Point before. He did a great job for his second race weekend. For never having been to SP he wasn't too far off the pace.
I was pretty happy with my lap times as at a prior Audi Club DE I was slooooooow and I was starting to worry that maybe my recent alignment was bad or I was down on power or any other excuse besides the driver :). It turns out that the limits you'll push in a race setting are exponentially higher than a DE. That is for me anyway. I saw may times in the mid to low 1:26's which if consistent is competitive. It would be better to be consistent in the low 26's to high 25's. I got a fantastic start in the Saturday Sprint!
I hold the current lap record for SPB at SP though :). Turns out they are counting the new re-instated Spec Boxster class as all new. Hooray for me!
Here are some videos of the weekend.
