Come with me around AAA Autoclub Speedway

So I got out to the AAA Autoclub for the second time in two weeks on August 27. My brother in law came with because he had a project in mind that he really wanted to work on.

This is the end result!

Re: Come with me around AAA Autoclub Speedway

Nice! 2:54... I'm lined up right behind you. Silver 2nd gen with the white/red/black A* leathers.

What happened at 2:45? You lose the front for a second there?

If we get out there on the same day again I need to follow your around through turn 3... I can't figure out how to get through there quickly for the life of me.

Re: Come with me around AAA Autoclub Speedway

Yea man I ran off the front and tucked it in. I had used my knee to bring her back up.... I almost highside after turn 6 at the 530 minute spot.

Turn three is a biit tricky... I normally start braking at the 3 cones and get down to 2nd. That way once you clear the corner you go WOT into 4 and follow the racing line to set you up for 5 and 6. I will be out there again in October. Funny you were there the same day. I am the guy that one the 50% of the Shoei helmet!

I was running 1:57s until I got caught in the NRS traffic in the later laps... I think Ill try Level 2 next time I think I can easily knock off 4 seconds and keep them off if I dont get swallowed up in the traffic.

Re: Come with me around AAA Autoclub Speedway

My fast lap of the day was a 1:57.8 - so it sounds like we're running a pretty similar pace. I was getting caught up in a lot of traffic, low-sided in turn 16 in the 2nd session of the day and was sick as a dog the week leading up to the track day - so I'm pretty sure I have a few more seconds in me too.

If you're running consistent 1:57s you should have no problem in Level 2. I've run in intermediate at Big Willow, and while I'm on the slower side of the group, if I line up at the back of the pack I don't have to worry about everyone blasting by me, but I'm still fast enough that guys at the front aren't catching up by the end of the session. The cut-off for intermediate is 2:01, and that was before they added the kink in the back straight.

Re: Come with me around AAA Autoclub Speedway

deL - do you have any raw video from that track day you could throw up? I'm curious to compare lines and such to what I'm doing.

I've got some footage up here:
