WHRR Drivers School 2013 Group 1

Postby TealTuna » Mon Apr 29, 2013 11:58 am

I wanted to start this so the guys n' gal from Group1 of the driver's school could share their pictures, thoughts, and most importantly videos from this weekend's driver's school.

I'm still on a high from the weekend and have 24GB of in-car to go through. I'm going to try and upload an uncut version of the final race for group1 from my car which was an absolute blast.... And awesome to see the progression from the drivers that I saw on track day1 vs. the drivers I 'raced' against on day2 was really great.

Unfortunately I can't post much of anything right now at work but I hope others are willing to share their pics n vids on here.

P.S. Thanks everyone for not running into the tiny yellow thing in their mirrors - I can't imagine how difficult it was to see me and I tried to keep that in mind the best I could while making passes. I think I need one of those OFV flags like a dunebuggy. :shock:

My good friend also took some stills from a couple sessions Day1 so I'll try and post those here also when he gets them to me (he's slowwww)

Godspeed everyone.

I'll start it with one quick cellphone pic from after the last race session: Racecars always look better dirty.

Hey Ryan,
We were working in the esses yesterday, and you were looking GREAT through there! Our crew was amused at how much steering input you had to make on quite a few occasions! :P
You really made great progress from Saturday to Sunday, and we look forward to seeing you out there next weekend.
Good luck, and keep on entertaining us!

Okay here is the in-car from the last session of the weekend.
I'm now catching mistakes I wasn't completely noticing while out there - but more importantly I'm noticing my extensive use of the "hang loose" hand gesture

Jodi, thanks for the compliments - you'll see there was plenty of steering input through the whole session 8)
Unfortunately I won't be out there next weekend. I am going to try and make at least one waterford weekend but also SCCA weekends for my license credit.

Enjoy

That looked like fun, and most importantly if anybody indeed was 'hanging loose' out there........it was you!

Glad you're hooked :mrgreen:

Nobody else from G1 willing to share a vid or pix? I know I saw some gopro's through the hatchglass ;-)

Also noted (learned) that I will be much less active with my hand signals in a race. I don't want to confuse any corner workers thinking something is wrong or wondering what's going on. I was just a little drunk on adrenaline there.. Just a simple wave on a cool-down lap or where needed :-)
