Pocono Raceway, Long Pond, PA
This was the first race that my father couldn’t make it to. I went at it alone, but it wasn’t as much fun flying solo. It didn’t help that I didn’t care for the track that much (dat transition!), and that it rained the night before (does puddles!). I threw the car off the track 2x… like an all-4-wheels-flying-through-the-mud trip. Clearly, this was the day I’d bin it…
…but it wasn’t. I kinda muddled through the sessions, never really being happy with my driving, but not sucking terribly. Besides, I was the only Miata Challenge car there! LOL. Hopefully I won’t lose!
Best time; session 2. 1:06.582. Since this track is like a transformer and there are a million variations (North? South? North / South? New pavement? Old Pavement?), I only found this NASA record:
SM – Eric Gebhardt 01:04.602 9/6/09
Crikey. 2 full seconds off that small track? Yikes.
