Barber Motorsports Park Damp E46 M3 (Wreck at end)
3/23/13 After my first session the track dried substantially and I was really able to pick up speed, but the track was still wet in some areas and that would mean my demise. I averaged 1:56, but my fastest laps were 1:55.57 and 1:55.80. If you listen to my engine, I'm barely decelerating through that section. When the back end started to slip I counter steered, but instinctively let up a bit more on the throttle and I believe that is what put me into the wall. I believe that if I gave it more gas instead, then weight would transfer to the rear and that with counter steer would have kept me on the track. I'm open to constructive criticism so let me know what you think.

My humbling experience in a Ferrari California at Atlanta Motorsports Park
For Valentines Day, my wife bought me three laps driving a Ferrari at Atlanta Motorsports Park (AMP), a 2-mile, 16-turn track with over 100' in elevation changes, on Saturday, March 9, 2013. While I drove, my professional driving instructor from XtremeXperience, called out tips for cutting my lap times from his spot in the passenger seat. It was a humbling experience to see just how rusty I was, and realize just how far above my current skills the abilities of this supercar were. I was never frightened, but could hear the siren song of this incredible machine cooing me on to go faster, go faster... My instructor did catch me making one very rookie mistake, twice! And that was following the lines taken by a Lamborghini Gallardo that started in front of me. "Don't follow him, he doesn't know what's he's doing! Don't follow his line, listen to my voice!" my instructor admonished me at one well-deserved point. I do, however, disagree with his actually grabbing hold of the steering wheel at a few points to nudge me into taking the turns a bit wider between Turns 3-4 and 13-14. Number 1, unless you see an imminent crash coming, there should be no excuse for grabbing the steering wheel at speed. Number 2, after reviewing some other in-car videos, in particular one of race driver Robby Card setting the course record of 1m:16s in August 2012, it was apparant that I was following the same line he was: much tighter than what my instructor was literally forcing me to do by grabbing the wheel. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-skAnbXgcrA&feature=player_embedded What was the top speed I reached? I don't know. They wisely encourage you not to keep taking your eyes off the track to look at the speedometer. A better gauge might be that my best lap was about 2m:11s, and a good lap for a professional driver in the same car is about 1m:50s. So, I was lapping the track at about 84% the speed of a professional driver. Not bad for an old guy who hadn't sat behind the wheel of a race car since 1981. Lou Smarbles
