Laguna Event

September 7th, 2011 No comments

Took the car to Laguna in March. Craig drove his BMW and had a great time. The track was rainy in the beginning of the day, which made for some excitement! I ended up wrong-way around after Turn 2 entrance. Thereafter, I learned to be subtle with the throttle. Rain teaches you a lot.

The car was fantastic!

More and more confident through the day, and started really getting on it after Turn 5 where the sound station is. Black flag… Came in at 94.5 dB so very close. Just backed off a little after that in that spot and the rest of the runs were fine.
