Here's my 2nd wet track day from November 6, 2011, at Buttonwillow 1CCW.


And some photos by the Track Photographer at Streets of Willow (CCW), December 4, 2011. My car is the one with the pumpkin on top.
Turning left: http://www.caliphotography.com/photo...wGallery=16837
Turning left even more somewhere else on track: http://www.caliphotography.com/photo...wGallery=16837

Edit: And now video from Streets of Willow on Dec 4, 2011. This is Blue (low intermediate) run group, 3rd session. Later I did one session with Black (high intermediate) and while it was fun, everyone else in Black was faster than me. Guess that means I'm not a "high intermediate" HPDE driver yet.

Streets of Willow again, one week later, this time with the BMW CCA Los Angeles chapter. So this time I have an instructor. I'm not very fast, but fast enough to annoy the beginner students in my run group by following them closely into turns.

Auto X at GIR. I let the clutch out a little too soon at 43secs, and it died (nose dumps)

That would be awesome to do! Need to get my sedan ready for transmission swap...

I'm planning to run Chuckwalla in February or March. What is a turnout point?

It's kinda scary, I mean, it's not really a problem when the sand blows onto the track, but when someone goes off then comes back on, then yeah it is a problem.

You can feel the car lose traction a little bit, but nothing much. It really depends on what tires you're on as well.

Here are some pics of my car at the track. Everything is currently stock but I'll soon install some thicker adjustable sways, better brake pads and have almost decided on a set of coilovers.

Slow corner



Body roll!





Accelerating down a long straight. Mud is because I came off after overcooking a corner.
