Track: NJMP Thunderbolt (No Chicane)
Car: Z4M Coupe
Tires: Hoosier R7 Scrubs 275 Squared
Time: 1:31:25


First time running on Hoosiers (scrubs with 1 race weekend on them). While not much faster than my old tires (surprisingly) they were far more consistent. Shaved off some decent time in the first couple sectors but was quicker through the octopus the last time I was here. Overall, 1:30 is definitely in the deck with a bit more time.

Wow, slicks eh? I bet fresh set will get you down another 2-3 seconds easy. You seem to be on the limit there every turn, good work!

Thank you Andre! Definitely more in the car, especially around the octopus. Hope to catch you out there again soon!

Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (Mosport) - GP Circuit with Trillium BMW Friday Solo/Instructor group last week
- 1:35.7 by Harry's lap timer
- Square setup of 265/35/18 Trofeo R + the big wing as the major upgrades from previous setup (1:38.15 on Hankook RS-4)
- PFC 355/328 mm big brakes with PFC11 pads all around

I think this is still well below the limit of the setup after I managed a bunch of back to back 1:36 laps at a relaxed 8/10 pace, so I look forward to getting back out on track in July.

Thanks! Don't have any experience prior to repaving. Found it pretty bumpy coming onto the front straight.

Yes, and it's quite a pucker moment since its coming up to the only wall on track!

Supposedly less bumpy overall than before. I still haven't been on it this year.

I THINK if that Miata before T7 did not make me slightly lift it would have been a high 1:12, but there's always next time! First time on A7 scrubs and cant wait to try stickers.
