Got some great coaching from Tow Fowler of OPM (they built my car), Mark Cash and Todd Buras. On Saturday, I did not think it was a fun track. Initially, it seems overly technical - very busy - you're always working the steering wheel except for front straight. But on Sunday, after doing some sessions, I started to like it. The back section has a nice flow to it when you get the line right. And the two high speed sweepers are fun. The track is really like a skid pad - you can practice a lot of oversteer car control and in most places there is a lot of run off room - no close walls like Road Atlanta. It's actually quite a fast track but when you first drive it, it seems very technical - you need the correct line (thanks for showing me Tom !!). Personal best time of 1:23.9. Front running National SM time are low to mid 22s so I think 23.9 is not too bad for very first weekend. At least i didn't hit the wall on front straight which i'm told is a common thing when drivers try to keep car on the track at 100 mph.
