SCDA Lime Rock Park, 7 Nov 09, Corolla runs Blue Group, session 3 (Part 2)
SCDA at Lime Rock Park, last event of the season on a great fall afternoon. Jon is instructing again, fun factor is high. First day in the Intermediate 1 group: faster cars and drivers, busy pointing people by, working on my line. As always, I am in my 93 stock Corolla (1.6L, 3 spd auto).
My favorite track. Nice and flowing, fast in my low-hp car. Had as much fun as the first time I went (see the Aug 10 videos).
Notice how at 1:40, I am a bit early at the 2nd apex exiting Big Bend and get on the throttle a little too eagerly: FWD car, understeer, left front wheel hits the dirt. Tried to unwind the wheel quickly, but still had a bit of steering lock left from the corner exit - enough for the difference in surface grip to catapult the car to the right, immediately breaking traction. Took quick opposite lock as soon as all 4 wheels were on the asphalt to catch and recover the car. Impressive lesson on what even a bit of steering lock does if your wheels are on different-grip surfaces.

My car is a '93 base Corolla, stock engine, 1.6L, 3-speed automatic. No
modifications except grippy street tires, a pirate flag decal, and a go-faster-stripe.
My first track day, and an incredible blast.

Understeer: How to make through a corner
In every day, some of the road will be straight and a considerable part of
it, with bends. What happens if you misjudge the speed going into a corner,
if the corner suddenly tightens, or if you skid over water or oil? Re'em
explains the gap between the nautral response and the right course of
NAAC Winter Driving School - Road Course at Team O'Neil Rally School
North Atlantic Audi Club, Feb 2010 winter driving school at Team O'Neil
Rally School in Dalton, NH.
My 93 Corolla going around the road course Ken Block - style :). The
instructor's (Jon) comments are very educational, especially around the
cone slalom following the barn. Most fun was the faaast downhill, coming
over the crest, rotating the car with left foot braking, then gunning it
down the slope - wheeeeeee!
Learned a lot. Met great people. Had a blast.
