Here is the only video I got, it was the last session and I was going to try to get the gray GTR as he was the fastest of the two GTR's there and I had been hounding his tail a couple sessions before for several laps, so we turned up the psi, but he got away before I could clear the other cars as quick as he did. It wasn't open passing. so had to wait for passing zones Also I can't figure out what happened to the white Mustang GT500, he must have missed a shift but he damn near stopped in the middle of turn 14, almost had a miata for a rear bumper.
Yeh he was the faster of the two, I got around the red one in session 2 also, but the guy driving the silver one was a really good driver from Texas and I don't think I could have got him, but it was sure fun trying and it had to have been bugging him seeing that red miata on his rear the whole time in session 3.
I've raced CW twice and CCW once, and I much prefer CCW as well. One of the main reasons I don't like CW as much as the oppertunity to loose the back end coming on to the straight and smash it into the wall. It's interesting that you "fear" CCW more, I don't remember many "oh ----" moments that direction.
This was with the red car? I'm doing 2:13s on all seasons and apparently only 155hp, sounds like you were really cooking. Glad you liked it, can't wait to see some vids.

I simply burn a second a lap there so I don't need to scrape skidmarks out of my shorts or my car off the wall. Someday I'll have the stones to take that turn at 10/10ths...
I do the same, in fact we were told to do so in the drivers meeting. The possibility of a second off your lap time is not worth the bigger possibility of a wadded up car.
The secret is actually in the curbing before the turn. Hit that, and your wheel will straighten out a bit. This will cause you to dive in for the apex, most likely loosing the rear end. That's what happened in my video. I wouldn't be surprised if you see a little lift on the right side from curbing or a vibration from the curbing in your video Mobius.
The good thing is they got rid of all the boulders in the infield, so going in the grass isn't as much of a deal.
There are a lot of curbs at ORP to stay away from. Fortunately, the exit of T14 (CW) is OK as long as you don't go past it. Each time I have walked the track, there has been a wheel eating canyon just past the curbing. You don't want to drop a wheel there. With the boulders gone, the safe thing to do there is to head into the tall grass and hope you don't get any snakes in the cab.
1.59's CW, great time. I think the best I did was 2.02's, but found a shorting out wideband sensor harness when back home in the garage, so might be able to do a little better next year. Have never got to run it CCW, what would be turn 1 would be really fast as you would be going down hill into it.
