HPDE Weekend @ Virginia International Raceway

As the title states did another HPDE event this weekend. Had some great runs, instructor immediately moved me up a group and recommended moving up another group as well. This video is of my last run of the day, had to wait on instructor so was last on the track so I had some ground to make up. The camera is a GoPro mounted on left front brake duct. Didn't have time to do any editing but wanted to get something out. I feel confident that I represented the beast well. Enjoy and appreciate any comments.

Looks like you had much better weather than we did at Watkins Glenn, 43 degrees rain and fog.

Randy-great video-looks like you were passing everything in sight! How do you like the 3.91 diff and do you use the M6 as an everyday driver?
Thanks,
Bill

Thanks Bill, love the rear diff, really gives you a throw back when shifting. Yes I drive it almost daily, although I just picked up an M Coupe so each day will be a tough choice. I was the last to get out, waiting on instructor, but the car is really dialed in and as you could see there wasn't much out there that I wasn't catching.
