The TVR Crew
Temp: Low 80's
So I drove down to Buttonwillow Raceway Saturday afternoon to
catch up with Rob at the track and then run in HPDE on Sunday. Rob
already warned me that 5th gear on the back straight was
embarrassingly useless. He was right. 4.10's + stock T45 + trying to
accelerate @ 120mph = nothing for me.
Other than that, I had a blast. ;-)
This was my second time driving Buttonwillow and my first
time running this configuration, which is run in the reverse
direction of my first time. Needless to say, I spent my first two
sessions finding the line, the limits and pointing lots of people
by. The third session, I was feeling much more comfortable and was
able to put down a 2:03 lap time. I skipped out on the fourth
session to save the car and tires for the 4-hour drive home.
Enjoy the pix! Hopefully I'll be able to get the time to convert
some video footage soon!
