That is a car completely set up for racing, roughly equivalent to a Porsche GT3 Cup car, so not surprising. While not the latest version (488 Challenge), it is a very quick car.

Looks like a pit in signal would have been nice and probably beneficial.
The highlight of my weekend was hopping out of Nader's car, jumping into my car in Black (with a White driver), and having the Ferrari take a pass in 2 halfway through the session. OK... the actual highlight was chasing his ass up the hill, closing on him in the Esses, and being close enough to to feel like I did pretty well until we got to Oak Tree.

My best was a 2:12, and I was elated. I am pretty sure that lap was it - only one car, a fast rabbit, and perfect Sunday Driving weather.

Martin - nice driving (even the spin... ). You totally earned a pass from Tomas 2 laps in a row.

I have my Harry's - I jumped from Nader to my car, but video has not been working well. Or much at all.

So.. I guess it didn't happen... for you. But I am still happy.

I am having some trouble transitioning to usable video in the 95. Maybe a winter project - along with possible data acquisition if I can figure out what the OBD-I can do. GoPro isn't giving me out of car and in car visibility, I get inside or outside.

Ken -

I don't have a 2:12 in hand, but turned a couple of 2:13s. BMAN - here is video proof.

Would love any feedback, suggestions and ideas for improvement

Ken, unfortunately OBD-I does not give you anything, but with most of today's data loggers, it is easy to just tap into the throttle wire in a 95. You need a brake pressure sensor which can be put in the line from master cylinder. GPS gives you speed and Gs. All you need. A steering angle sensor would be a nice to have. Sam Nikomanesh on here had a data logger for sale which may be a good option

Overall laps look pretty good, cool and calm hands decent patience on throttle,....patience to throttle is a hard one to master but pays dividends not lifting

Get your shifting done a little earlier if possible, a few times seems like you distract yourself from turn in trying to get a shift done last second

Turn 1, dont roll into the corner so much (aka slow turn in) go in a little later and turn in with faster hands will allow you to hug the apex longer and later....which theb allows you to not use that much exit track left...track gets more and more off camber and greasy out there on the left

5a, right hand entry to sanke.....use the inside curbing more again later turn in with faster hands to almost throw the car in...lets you get on throttle earlier and all the way to top of esses.

Turn 7 (first right-hand esse) attack that more, basically straight line jump over curbing....sets up the next two to be less turn.


Hogpen there is a few line and throttle adjustments but in general done well.


You definitely have 12 or less in those laps, I'll bet if you pull up your best potential or possibly rolling lap it's an 11 or maybe even a 10

Hope this isn't too much
