This is quite true, but you were certainly moving quickly yourself. I meant to comment you on your driving, especially coming into 10a, but i got distracted by the prototype thing...

Yep, that is a older DP car. Ford powered Crawford DP03. I have some pictures of Steve in action on the track. I will post them when I get home tonight.

Did you notice I turn in too early for 3 everytime and end up binding up too much coming into 4?

Thanks for coming out, Raj! I'm looking forward to the pics. I wish my best tires had been on the 6uls and not on the smaller wheels for the sake of pics, but oh well.

I just want to let everyone know that Raj will be coming down to run Sebring in the Spring. There. Now you are committed to do it, haha.

It did seem a bit early, you seemed a bit early on the entrance to the esses as well. if you turn in at the end of the rumble strip on the left, everything straightens out more through the esses.

They have been sometimes. I'm sure they get brittle from the heat cycling.
