    4 20 minute sessions in upper 80 degree temps is exhausting, even though they were spread out from 9AM till 4PM.
    Here's a video from my dashcam unfortunately somehow the audio was turned off...pissed me off

          Weird... I didn't see the intro this morning or the pic when I took a quick peek before I had to leave, but now I see it. The video I saw this morning, started with a dashboard view & no sound. I figured it was your SS but wasn't sure.

          Coincidentally, I saw 2 of SS' going down to Austin this morning! Or should I say, 2 SS's passed me going down to Austin. Pretty neat car you got there Bill.

          Any idea what your average speeds were during your runs? Any pucker moments?

              Just 2 uh-oh's, the back end started coming around but I had just spent some time on the skid track so it didn't really phase me. Another time I turned into a left too soon & was running out of track, my instructor said nice job glad you didn't panic. No idea on average speed, I had a GPS app open on my phone which was in the glove box. Top speed was 126, at the end of the straight is a tight right hander knowing that it's was pretty hard not to brake early.

              EDIT: well I'm dumb the GPS app has averages... distance 19.87 miles 54 mph average that's the session in the video. In an earlier session there was more traffic that one was 27.47 miles with an average of 43mph

                      As I type , I can hear the autocross cars over on the Old Fort Devens airfield .... we have gone over to watch . Elaine got to ride in a Scion that was the track leader that day .... She hops out of after the session , and asked if he was married !!!!! While I was standing there !!! :-)

                      Just like a bike track day , it’s a total blast

                        Steve, I think that you put the decimal in the wrong spot.

                          BillGsa while I’d have preferred that you joined us for the VIR trackday, at least this is a start. I’m guessing that you hated it and will never go back :sarc:
