Track day at Laguna Seca yesterday. It was overall a fairly frustrating day as the car count in each group was huge and I dealt with traffic the entire day. On the plus side, the car ran great all day (minus some overheating on occasion) and I got to hangout with @ckuhns
and his sweet track wagon.
Session 1 was a total wash, at one point I was in an 8 car train trying to pass. Best lap was 1:48.8.
Session 2 ended up being my fastest, I got one clean-ish lap on my second lap of the session, running a .1s PR of 1:46.143. Unfortunately the rest of it was spent dealing with traffic.
Session 3 was also very frustrating. I tried a few times to back off and create a nice gap for me to get in a hot lap, but each time I was defeated by slow traffic that seemingly emerged from nowhere. At one point I pulled in the pits for a drive through to get out of traffic, and when I went back out had some clear space, but then I noticed my phone mount was failing and was about to fly off the windshield. I had to go back into the hot pit to fix it. Once that was resolved, it was back to traffic, and I couldn’t get any clear space for the remaining of the session.
Deciding whether to go back to Laguna in Feb for a redemption run or running the Thunderhill 5M instead. I can absolutely run a 1:44 at Laguna, I just need to get some clear space and put it together. No idea what my goal would be for the Thunderhill 5M, but it is a really fun course to drive. We’ll see!
