Love the skid marks in T14.

Looks like fun.

It is a fun track
I like the ones in the bowl (Turn 13, 10 deg banking ) at 1:36 even better

My son in his first track event spun a few times in his DE sessions at 15
I'm a proud Papa!

Back to back sessions is hard on the tires and car

Fun weekend at the track

That looks like so much fun! Those wide open spaces are not something we have here in the Northeast.

I've been doing some AX in my first year of Box ownership. Not remotely competitive being a novice on all season tires, but what a hoot it is thrashing the car around the cones! But I also feel the urge to stretch the old gal's legs a bit. I guess next year I'll try DE and may have to buy some stickier tires. I feel the beginnings of the slippery slope

Its a very slippery slope

We are a bit lucky with several great tracks within a 2-5 hour drive from San Diego

Yeah those skid marks. Are you rocking out during the session or did you add the music somehow when making the video?

A fun weekend indeed. Two days on a race track nearly always beats two days working. Not my best driving as it was hot and I was a bit distracted, but good mental health vacation. We had another jam session Saturday night dubbed "Chuckchella" that was a hoot.

I notice that when highway driving I speed up when certain songs like "Red Barchetta" are playing, maybe I should try that on the track!

Which one are you?

Here is an old photo of me from the early 90's...
