Question Anybody going to the divisional this weekend?

I decided to enter at the last minute. I'll be running first thing in the morning in STS as number 00. (Gotta' beat that BMW 330i.)

Hope I see some of you there.

I might stop by for a little on Sunday, but I won't be able to stay for very long.
When are you running?

Day one was terrible. I couldn't get out of my own way. I hate running first thing in the morning. I like to run after I've had a chance to see what line the other drivers (who know what they're doing ) take. Oh well. I usually use Dwight Smith (driver of the red Ford Focus) as my meter stick. If I'm running close to him I'm doing pretty good. If I beat him, I'm having a very good day. Although I showed good improvement throughout the day, Dwight beat my by over a second.

That night I went to the book store and bought "Speed Secrets: Professional race driving techniques" by Ross Bently and did an little reading. Much of his advice was on being smooth and driving at the limit. (I have a tendency to be a little too rough with the controls and drive a little past the limit - you know, sideways .)

So, day 2 I started getting a feel for the balance between driving smoothly and driving aggressively. I beat Dwight by nearly a second! Of course, by that time the best I could do was move from 6th (and last) place to 5th in STS.

Oh well, it was great seat time and good experience. Hopefully it will pay off in the regional series.
