PCA at UMC - Full track

A couple of laps with the Boxster at the PCA HPDE at UMC (Utah) last weekend.
I REALLY, really like what Tatum racing did with the setup for me. the car rotates so perfectly. some occasional understeer that's easily managed with the right foot. It gave me enough confidence that I could drive it harder than I ever have before. HLT says I'm hitting 1.3g's in places. This is on Nitto NT01's.
What I DO know, is that when I find myself reaching over and holding onto the door handle with my left hand, to hold myself into the seat, then it's time to invest in a more appropriate seating arrangement. hahaha.

Nice! Smooth and clean, with barely a squeak from the tires. You've done this way more than me, and it shows. I remember that track from when I did Ford's ST Octane Academy back in 2017.
I took my 2006 Boxster S out to the main track at Nola Motorsports last month and had an absolute blast! It doesn't handle as well as yours, and the tires don't have near the grip, but damn, that car is fun to take around the track! Other cars would leave me on the long straight, but then they would be in my way in the corners (we were all novices). This light, well balanced machine really loves to tame the corners.
