    Default Car and Driver Noob @ the 'Ring

    Wow!

    Big "ups" for trying; but still, it seems pretty underwhelming not to be able to crack 60 mph at the 'Ring:

    that's really slow. We (Trackhq Ring trip last year) drove the same car (rented from same people), also in the rain (actually more like snow), easily couple of minutes faster.

    I actually found a good instructional beginner video. With in-car commentary WHILE driving. He was probably going 9/10ths and not 10/10ths too.

    I think the fear of having to pay damages, as a young kid, on top of losing an internship with a reputable magazine would affect his times very much.
