Kevin, Did you get a transponder? What times have you run there? I am still gettin' the hang of it out there but was able to take alot off my times due to some really good coaching by Marc Norris. After going with him in his Dinan S2 M3 I took off 7 seconds got down to 1.46.

Still got some work to do. Hopefully after I put some R comps on I can take the times down some more.

Got to 1.38, that was my first session of the day, then the porsches held me up, and we were just having fun:biggrinbounce:. I thought I could do better towards the end of the day but, I was tired and the track got too hot to get any better times.

Damn that is a great time! We were held up by slow traffic every lap. What I liked was that I always caught the traffic (the smaller cars) infront in turn 2, 3 and 4. The M6 is heavy but handles awesome!

Ran in MDM mode which always kicked in on turn 2 - 5. Especially came on on turn 3. At first I though I had a power problem then I remembered I had it on.

Suggestion.....

You guys should really consider taking off work and attending this: http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=114851&highlight=willow+springs

It's a first class event (I've been three times), with relatively very few attendees/cars. Track is "hot" virtually all day; and you can choose to have instruction whenever you want (Simon Atik of Evosport is cheif driving instructor and is excellent!!), or not at all. # of novice slow cars is minimal to none (well, except for member gbogh3 :hihi:); no hold-ups for faster drivers/cars.

I got so tired of the typical event which relegates you to one of several "run groups"; and you spend too much time waiting around for your "turn". Then, you wind up running into slow traffic, anyway.

Of the 3 Evosport/Motorsports Club events I've been to, 'most cars there was 15; and 4 - 5 of those were purpose built race cars being tested by their owners. Also, the instructors bring their own cars and put on a 5 - 6 lap exhibition race. If Simon sees you can drive (Ghostryder??), he'll clear you to join in!!

I'm now spoiled for this type of small event; 'won't go back to club or multi run group BS. WAAAY too frustrating.

I would love to go, but its next to impossible for me to go on the weekdays.:mad:

ahhhhhhhhhhhh. I know its more expensive to run a track day on a weekend, but if they have one coming up I am in. And I also have some friends who would love it.

DRM, you are absolutely right, the waiting around sometimes lasts forever.zzzzz​
