It is really wet during this video, however i do have video of me driving in full downpour. I was one of 3 guys to go out during one of my sessions because everyone else "didn't want to"

Seat time is seat time, and seat time in the rain is pretty rare so I took every opportunity I could to learn.

My first laps were in the 2:50 range on Saturday morning. Sunday afternoon down to 2:24 fully wet. Ill scrounge something together for some full downpour driving.

If you're forced to have a banner anyway, why not contact one of the companies on the side to set up some sort of agreement?

If you don't like sponsors then go run in NASA TT and not get any national blo coverage. I'd proudly wear the Massengil banner if they decided to bankroll a series I'm competing with.

???? because he's prolly only running 1 or 2 events a year and is peeling the stickers off after the event anyway. read hustler's post for clarification.

nick, nice driving. i like driving in the rain sometimes, but i love feeling the g's and high speeds more. i guess if it's a hpde then i wouldn't care, but if it's a comp. event, i'd rather it be dry.

awesome. i was thinking of video of u on the wet tires instead of the nt01 but i'll take full downpour in lieu anyday. i really enjoy rain driving but i usually avoid wet track days because they always close the track and that kinda blows.

@spoolin i thought in wet races it would be easier to pick off the weak and sickly ones? or is it too easy to get punted off track...

He's getting photographed with those banners on his car and those photos are getting posted on sites that are pretty popular. It's obvious that Redline is using everyone for advertising while they get paid for it. I'm saying he should try to bypass that and get paid himself.

You don't see that?
