Fast hands avoid a Lotus Exige spin at Texas World Speedway (TWS)

An aggressive entry into Turn 8 puts me off-line after correcting the oversteer, and I consequently early apex Turn 9 at about 75 mph. I think this list here covers all the mistakes that led up to the near spin: 1. I allow myself to be distracted by my instructor describing something. 2. I'm aggressive on Turn 8 with some entry oversteer. 3. After correcting, I fail to notice that I'm out of position: I'm to the right of my usual line. 4. Still distracted, I start turning in using my usual reference point instead of adjusting and braking for being closer to the apex. 5. This makes me miss the apex by about 3 or 4 feet, and on a trajectory that will make me leave the track around where the oval track intersects. Realizing this, I add more steering instead of reducing speed. 6. Mayhem ensues. It was quite a challenge to keep the car from spinning. As if it weren't enough that I didn't have any throttle for the duration, my foot actually found the brake halfway through, which made the rear even lighter. However, the braking did also slow the car down, allowing me to finally collect it at about 35mph. That blue bendy thing flailing around in the bottom left of the screen is my leg trying to find the gas pedal.

BMW M3 vs Lotus Elise at TWS
From the last session at TWS during the March 2011 PCA Texas Two Step Club Race and HPDE. Its always a lot of fun to mix it up with comparable car and driver.





A Little Oversteer on Track in a Lotus Elise.
Another great Morrisport track day at Mission Raceway. Unfortunately the weather didn't want to cooperate! This was my last session of the day and the ambient temperature seemed to drop dramatically with the increased rain. Tires were dead cold and giving almost zero feedback. With each lap in this particular heat the track was getting wetter and wetter such that every time you entered a corner it was a whole new (lower) level of grip compared to the previous lap. This forced us to back right off and try to stay smooth. Here I lift early for turn 4 and turn-in but can't feel a thing through the wheel; I hit the slick curbing and the tail stepped out. (I notice the Elise -at least on R888's- exhibits this trait where all that wonderful steering "feel" drops off sharply with cold temps, even in the dry). I'll post some video from the dryer sessions as well where we got to charge a little harder!





Red Group The Driver's Edge Texas World Speedway May 2011
First dry session in new ACR Viper at TWS. Red Run Group. Not the fastest session of the weekend. Got out late in the session. The Driver's Edge Saturday May 21, 2011. Missed a few shifts during the session. M3, GT-R, Porsche GT-3, ACR-X (Green). Thrown off a few laps from the M3 sliding and hitting the rev limiter (all me). Letting the faster ACR-X by broke up the M3 and Porshe combo so I could get through. All laps posted for the passenger. Look for faster laps from the weekend. Will post them soon.





Nissan GT-R @ TWS CCW May 22, 2011 using Race-Keeper
I borrowed another GT-R's 18" race wheels and heavily worn slicks and got to demo the race-keeper datalogger unit and it spit out this video. Sadly the in-car camera broke off its mount so I covered it up with the gauges... :) Bad driving by me but it was my first session ever on slicks.. Oh and that clunk you hear on turn 1 is my front end bottoming out due to my car getting lowered from the race wheels. I couldn't hear it from my position. It was so bad on one lap I lost control of the car for a moment and ended up on the infield grass briefly..
