Thanks for the link to the inspection form. It has a sign-off line for an inspector. Are they going to be sticklers for that or can I self-inspect? The car meets the requirements on the checklist.

So they are running CW? That is going to be pretty cool. I have never run it in that direction.

Yup, Jeff you'll need a good splitter to take advantage of a wing.

If you really want and we have time, you can try it, but you'll probably just push really bad.
will be the 2nd track day with the 99 and 1st on ast so still have to figure the car out before i start messing with aero.

no one will inspect your car. that's your job! you sign, unless your afraid of prosecution............... from yourself!

i think i like cw the best. going thru the chicane is way more fun in this direction.

Definitely a lot more interesting on the entry! Plus if you really, really overcook the entry I suppose one can bail out into the banking area to keep from ending up in the grass.

I think I have said this before but the turn 3->2->1->looong.straight->heavy braking->chicane layout going CW at TWS reminds me of the corresponding section of the F1 track layout at Indy. 3 is a left-hander of course but still has a similar acceleration profile.



No Ralf Schumacher imitations please.

Yep you got it. I have the better end of the deal though since the supermodel umbrella girls are riding me, er, I mean with me, in the race hauler. Hustler and I will be taking turns driving while the other keeps them, er, entertained.

Its official. I am registered and confirmed. I'll be there Friday. I am probably driving up in the morning since there is no camping Thursday evening.
