TCUSA at Summit Point Shenandoah Circuit
My favorite session of the weekend, lapping with friends. Kevin, Roger, DaveP, ChrisP, George, JeffW, and others have appearances in this video. Best lap was a 1:39, but after seeing how the yellow BMW takes the turns at Pit In/Out, the data says I could have gone a couple tenths quicker!

Inside Mazda RX-8 on Summit Point Shenandoah Circuit
Somebody asked to see "spirited" shifting. What better way than on-track? I took this video at the May 2009 TrackDaze event on the Shenandoah. I learned from this video that I'm going faster than it feels like I'm going (the speedo is visible) and it doesn't look all that "spirited". Probably a good thing as steering nor shifting should be rushed. The RX-8 trans is good, but doesn't tolerate "jam shifting" or shifting with high RPM differentials. Shift late, match revs. don't force it. I've been tracking hard for two years and no trouble so far. My car is a stock 2005 RX-8 with Ecsta V700 tires, Hawk HP+ brake pads, and a B&B muffler. No traction or stability control. Camera is a Creative Labs Vado HD. Video could be better but I had to go through an extra transcoding to get the audio to work.
