Pacific Raceways road course TNT - 2012.02.04
Pacific Raceways road course test-n-tune from February 4th, 2012
00:10 Mustang FR500S heard
starting up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7mH6MEtxpk
-note that the white E92 M3 that passes me at around 12:45 starts behind me
in the beginning. It takes him 12 minutes to catch up so he can pass.
01:00 following Mustang GT
(includes warm up lap) .. some of my better laps from the day follow
06:20 still behind the Mustang GT as he starts passing
06:55 I yell at myself for waiting to long to get on the throttle :D
07:20 catch up to and pass red E30
07:50 can see the mk2 Golf (chumpcar). It takes me a couple of laps to be
able to pass him. He eventually was running faster than me.
10:38 pass the Golf this lap by catching up to him through turns 2 and
12:44 the white E92 M3 passes
14:00 catch up to the chipped mk5 GTI... I missed his first point to pass
14:45 highlights.. starting with later in Session 3
15:00 pass older Mustang
15:36 session 4's warm up lap. Let the 996 turbo and Golf R pass. I was trying to let the mk2
Golf follow to watch my line
16:22 the black Mustang GT
passes.. follow it from turns 2 - 8
18:15 1M Coupe passes
18:25 C6 Corvette passes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3x2Z9DWoOdI)..
followed from turns 1 - 8
19:35 I went off at turn 8. This is my first time going off at any track..
it was completely my fault. I braked and turned too late. The
straight-piped NSX passes afterward. I pulled off to have my tire temps
measured, and the course was red-flagged afterward because the CTS-V had
pulled off the track at turn 1 (see Corvette video above)
20:15 start of session 5's video
20:35 Golf R passes through turn 4.. follow through turn 8
21:50 blue E92 M3 passes at turn 7 .. catching up to the 968
22:38 passed the 968
23:30 catching up to the mk5 GTI
24:40 passed the GTI .. this was my fastest lap in this session
26:20 had to check my throttle in turn 6 to keep from going off
26:48 996 turbo passes, followed through
8 .. checkered flag and start of cool down
The key of this video for me is how the slowest car on the track can keep
up with most cars through the corners.. if not take the corners at higher
speeds. The car does handle very well for what it is (a heavy FWD wagon),
but this also points out how so many drivers rely on their car's power and
not the handling. You'll see this throughout the video.
This was during the "novice" group. People asked me to post up a video
showing my line, so that's what the first 14 minutes or so is for. Some of
my faster laps from the day are
also in this part of the video.
You'll also see many other cars including the new Golf R. I don't think
it's too boring, as long as you're already used to watching track videos :D
. This starts with the 3rd session of the day and then shows some
highlights from the 4th and 5th session.
The audio is horrible because the camera's cheap mic gets overwhelmed with
the windows open at speed. You aren't missing engine noise.. the engine is
The car is a 2009 VW SportWagen TDI. My times were around 1:50 - 1:52 on
this day when I got a clean lap (which wasn't often on this day).
Information on the car is at: http://fakelag.net/wagon
I reach 112mph at the end of the straight (between turns 1 & 2). I maintain
around 65mph around turn and pass 90mph before braking into turn 3a. I get
a little above 80mph before 5a, and I exit turn 6 at 70mph. I pass 80mph
before braking into turn 8. I've yet to be able to surpass 1:50 with this
car, though I'm sure it can be done.
Big thanks to Carlo from TC Motorsports for helping me measure tire
temperatures and determine some proper pressures.

Truck Fest 2013: Smokey Big Rigs Burnouts & Drag Racing Revealed
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably
don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at
Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig
Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the
mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup
dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a
big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second
time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and
informative TFLtruck video we see what happens when the Big Rig Semi Trucks
line up behind the Christmas Tree.

Don Kitch Explains the Pacific Raceways Track
Don Kitch of ProFormance Racing School is guiding me around the Pacific
Raceways track near Kent, WA. It was my first track day as part of the
"Intro to Sport Driving" Class. I was driving my Porsche Boxster S (981) in
convoy with an almost brand new Porsche 911 Carrera 4S (991). This video
shows me driving in the lead driving twice around, with Don explaining the
best line and providing some feedback on my driving.
