    Got some good laps in and managed a top speed of 117 in the straights!

    The corner workers need glasses, the numbers are huge!

    Video! I need video! A lot of us have snow and salt right now and the road courses won't open up for another 6 weeks or so.

    I had a bunch of video from today but I'm trying to wade through it to get some good stuff out of it.
    The Corvette ahead of me in this video was my track partner for the day meaning we shared the same instructor he has the instructor in the car with him here.

    Looks pretty wet. The course looks really interesting but also very dangerous, especially when wet. There are lots of walls, trees and hills really close to the track.

    Hellcat passing Hellcat. Same event, but GoPro was mounted to the side of my helmet. That's Carcass getting passed in the white Hellcat (He did let me go by...)

    Third gear, full throttle just so he could enjoy the symphony.

    And this is what happens when they open the skidpan because it's raining in Seattle.

    That's Don Kitch Jr, professional racecar driver driving my hellcat.

    also looked at my front tires today, they took considerable abuse on the outside edge. I can't wait for dry weather and sticky summer tires!
