How Not to Drive at a DE

Track day at the Circuit of the America's in the GT-2.

This driver gets extra points for the "elbow on the window" driving style and for the sheer awesomeness of grabbing the A-pillar to hold on while driving with one-hand when trying to keep the car on the track (0:40).

Back to the Beginner's group for this guy.

Love this shot! It reminded me of the time "many" years ago when my dad was alive and still racing that he got black flagged at Road Atlanta for driving with his elbow on the window during a race. I loved his comment when he got back to the pits..."it was an easy and boring race and I allowed my mind to drift...we won't be doing that again"!

When life throws you curves, aim for the apex...
