    It's slower now when it's cold. But once it's warm I think it's on par with the grip it used to have.

    Okay. I'm still in 7th place, but I got another .6 seconds the last time out. Baby steps, sure. But it's moving in the right direction.

    If the temperatures stay low, you're right. The data logger strings together a 'theoretical best lap' by taking the quickest segments I drove for each corner that day. It was a 1:27.49.

    So the only thing holding me back is me.

    Correct. This is the new T1 record that will record, although Kyle finished about 25th or so due to a flat tire on the 11th lap.

    Three of us ran under the old T1 record the first four laps until we started hitting lapped traffic. Chuck Mathews ran 1:26.8.

    There have been faster laps in practice and such, but the afternoon races always seem too hot or too windy for optimal conditions. Last year it was snow flurries until about 20 minutes before the green flag. Only the race laps count for a track record.

    I really want to try running one of the GT3 Cup cars here. It used to be my favorite track before I started racing... haven't been back there since I moved from LA.

    Yeah that kind of sucks because after all you guys went home I was running 1:25's consistently but I had already removed my transponder and I accidentally erased my lap timer data. Didn't have my video camera on either. Oh well, here's my fastest lap that I can prove:

    1:28.18 (Bill Brinkop; C5 Z06 T1; A6; 370whp/3230lbs, February 2012, MyLaps)

    BTW, congrats on your new pb. You can really haul ass around that track!

    That car would fly at WSIR! I want to go back there in my other vette with a front splitter and wing. I bet aero would knock seconds off my lap times there.

    Ha ha! Me too. I went out after you came in and I was turning 1:24s until about an hour after it got dark. Then I got hungry and went to get a pizza.

    John says Kyle has an unofficial 1:26.2xx in a practice session, but there is not any official recording of it.

    My fastest ever, in an Evo, is 1:34.95, and I have 5,000 laps under my belt on WSIR. You are doing fine.
