ZR1 Track Session with Driver's Edge (www.thedriversedge.net), bone stock down to PS2 tires besides Motul brake fluid. Check out a crazy slide at 10:45. I couldn't figure out how I lost control there until I looked at the track surface. It appears to be a trail of oil splatter right where my right tires drove over. Not good. Luckily, car was undamaged.

Slowly but surely gaining ground on the S2000 when in Big Bend he lifts and the rear frees up. Based on his rotation I was expecting him to come across the track but I saw him look at me then lock the brakes so I had a pretty good idea at that point it was safe to go outside.

MSR Cresson 3.1 2:26.73 Quick Lap
My quickest timed lap (2:26.73s) at MSR Cresson 3.1 CCW Drivers Edge HPDE. Four of us went out together. Me in GTR with my brother (also GTR owner) as passenger, friend in another GTR, instructor in Porsche GT3, and friend in Porsche 996TT - a we went after it. Great fun! Two of the quickest straights had water running across them, which made it extra exciting on slicks!
