I had a lot of issues with the yaw sensor not liking me. Club rule is to keep all traction systems on but finally decided with the instructor that on exception at my own risk we can turn it off. Wasn't able to accelerate out of high speed or high angle bends, the cars traction control didn't like it very much.

A left a lot of room for improvement since I missed a few apexes and definitely had room left on the table all over the place. I'd like to break 1:40 as a goal, but that's a number and I've got lots of other things to specifically work on.
