Awesome lap video (lap 16 video)....noted some 1.1 lateral G's! 115 mph on the straight; what RPM were you upshifting at?? Very smooth hands and car control - well done.

Being morning session I probably kept it easy and shifted around 7500. I think I recall bouncing off the limiter once when I was powering out of that sharp uphill right hander, coming out of 2nd gear.

Re grip, yea not bad and thatís with 40 degree temps all day... under better conditions 1.2 is easily doable. But I know I wasnít getting tires up to temp because my brake markers were little off.

Too bad that was last event of the year. This weekend the track tires are coming off and then car will be sitting in the garage with tender hooked up.
