Well I am thoroughly impressed because he beat my *** by 5-seconds in a copy of my car. How much seat time does he have at MSR-H? More than 3-sessions?

He is the guy I was telling you about on the phone. This was his thrid track event at all. We ran lemons here but the track was shortened and reversed, so it is a completely different track. He really is just naturally that damn good. It makes me mad and impressed at how well he did Saturday.

He was in my HPDE 1 group for some reason starting out, and was a good bit behind me, by lap 3 he raped me so bad my mom called me and said she felt a disturbance in the force....

He was in HPDE 2 because he wanted to go out with an instructor to have him teach him the course. He didn't get one though, so he learned it on his own. Hell I wanted an instructor in my car the first two sessions, but by the thrid I had gone over it pretty well and was stuck in my ways.

Default Personal Best at MSR Houston

Here go my best lap of the Texas Miata Challenge. The lap time of 1:54.40 was good enough to place dead last in Unlimited, but Fourth Place overall.

After seeing the lateral G's and maximum speeds, I can see that I was not driving at 10/10ths. I probably could shave off another two or three seconds if I push the car harder. Oh, well, next time.

sorry to take your self hate title away, but your not last. there is a mystery man in the brg na w/tan top, turbocharged, came in last. we have a lap time for him but no information. i know what you mean about pushing, i was just out there having fun. next time it's buisness on sat. playtime on sunday. plus with a running leaderboard, you can see if you need to kick it up a notch. and hopefully the weather will be such that we are able to trade info on setup, driving tips, etc....

just saw your vid. nice smooth driving! you were going as fast as i was on the 2 main straights. only thing i saw that was the different was the back straight leading to sugar&spice. i got to 101mph, you did 97mph. i noticed that you were shifting into 4th after the launch. were you wot all thru there? if not, there's where you lost some time. i was wot and shifting a few hundred rpm early into 4th @ 1:33 in your vid. that allowed me to keep the throttle pinned over the launch and focus on keeping the thing on track.
