Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course NASA TTA winning lap April 2012 (2011 Mustang GT 5.0)
First weekend of competition with the car in NASA's Time Trial Class A (Best lap time wins but lots of cars on track at once).
This is Mid-Ohio's "Club Course" meaning it has the chicane after turn 1.
I have lots of room to improve myself (the driver) and take some time out of the lap.
This weekend I was competing against a prepared Lotus Exige S240 and a prepared Porsche Cayman S.
The car was prepared by Rehagen Racing and I would like to thank my sponsor Ford Motor Company for allowing me the ability to go out and do this.
The second lap of this video was shaping up to be better than the first but the corner worker in turn 12 didn't wave the caution flag for the Viper who spun and was in the middle of the racing line. I just wanted to not hit him in the driver door and ended up with an embarrassingly big tank slapper.

FORD MustangMustang has Vossen Rims :
Engines were revised for 2011, and transmission options included the
Getrag-Ford MT82 6-speed manual or the 6R80 6-speed automatic based on the
ZF 6HP26 transmission licensed for production by Ford. Electric power
steering replaced the conventional hydraulic version. GT models included a
32-valve 5.0 L engine (302.13 cu. in.) producing 412 hp and 390 ft-lbs of
torque. Brembo brakes are optional along with 19-inch wheels and
Starting in late 2010 (for the 2011 model year), the Mustang GT's engine was an
all-aluminum 32-valve 5.0 L DOHC V8, codenamed Coyote. The 2011 Mustang GT marked the engine's first
use in any production Ford. While the new engine's displacement was similar
to Ford's original "5.0" 4.9 L (302 cu in) V8, it was an unrelated design
and instead shared more in common with the 4.6 L V8 and other Modular
engines that it replaced. The new 5.0 used a DOHC head design like other
Modular engines and even shared its bore spacing and deck height with the
outgoing 4.6 L V8. Differing the new engine from earlier Modular engines,
among other features, was its use of wider bore diameters (and a longer
stroke relative to the 4.6 L V8 in particular), to allow the use of larger
valves, and camshaft torque-actuated Twin-independent Variable Cam Timing
The new 5.0 incorporates piston cooling oil jets that helped warm the
engine faster and keep the engine
running cooler under load. Racing style tubular headers replaced the
standard cast iron headers. Coolant and oil flow patterns were optimized
for proper flow when under high lateral forces, such as those experienced
when on a road course track.
Getrag/Ford MT82 6-speed manual transmission and Ford's 6R80 6-speed
automatic transmission. The 6-speed manual transmission came with a 3.31:1
rear axle while 6-speed automatics get a taller 3.15:1 rear axle. Combined
with its new, more efficient V8, the new 6-speed transmissions contributed
to an improvement in fuel economy in the 2011 Mustang GT over its counterpart from
the 2010 model year. As certified by the EPA, manual transmission models
were able to achieve 17 mpg-US (14 L/100 km; 20 mpg-imp) in city and 26
mpg-US (9.0 L/100 km; 31 mpg-imp) on the highway while automatic
transmission models were able to achieve 18 mpg-US (13 L/100 km; 22
mpg-imp) in city and 25 mpg-US (9.4 L/100 km; 30 mpg-imp) on the highway.
Other, new features exclusive to the 2011 Mustang GT included "5.0" fender
badges replacing the "GT" badges used previously, an optional Brembo Brake
Package includes 14 inch Brembo front disk brakes taken from the Shelby
GT500, unique 19-inch wheels with Pirelli P-Zero ultra high performance
summer only tires, a unique calibration of the Advanced Track stability
system including a "sport" mode, and suspension enhancements such as
stiffer springs (less aggressive than the BOSS 302 and Shelby models but
more so than the regular GT models) and various other suspension
enhancements. Received a front strut tower brace, stiffened crossmembers,
and other enhancements resulting in a 12% increase in structural rigidity
compared to 2010 Mustang GT
Following the development of the Zeta architecture and because of its
position as the GM global center of RWD development, GM Holden in Australia
led the final design, engineering, and development of the Camaro. Production of the coupé
began on March 16, 2009, in LS, LT, and SS trim levels. LS and LT models
are powered by a 3.6 L (220 cu in) V6 producing 312 hp (233 kW) for the
2010 & 2011 model mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic
with manual shift. The SS is powered by the 6.2 L (376 cu in) LS3 V8
producing 426 hp (318 kW) and is paired with a 6-speed manual. The
automatic SS gets the L99 V8 with 400 hp (300 kW). The RS appearance
package is available on both the LT and SS and features 20-inch wheels with
a darker gray tone, halo rings around xenon headlamps, a unique spoiler,
and red RS or SS badges.
Other features include a fully independent four-wheel suspension system,
variable-rate power steering, four-wheel disc brake systems standard on all
models (four-piston Brembo calipers on SS models), a StabiliTrak electronic
stability/traction control system, Competitive/Sport modes for the
stability system offered on SS models, launch control on SS models equipped
with the six-speed manual transmission.

Fire in Thunder Valley 2012 at Mid Ohio during NASA nationals
During an accident between 2 cars in Thunder Valley the gas tank was
ruptured on the 944. Unknow to me at the time (thought it was radiator
fluid), I drove across the fluid and you can see the resulting fireball.
Both drivers got out OK although the driver you see running from the flames
had to help the 2nd driver get out. Moral of the story...practice getting
out of your race car!
