1st session, track still a little wet from a early morning shower, fast 4th gear switchback leading onto the back straight, so...... do you think my day ended here or a lucky A$$ save?

LOL extreme drifting

I was lucky, only dropped right front off in grass and was heading the right direction when I stopped.

Cliff, your bar worked very well, I normally get some push in turns 2-3 and 14A, completely gone this time with no other changes made to the car... great upgrade

Barber is so wide you have to F up pretty bad to hit anything there.

Scary place to get out of control, most put it into the passenger side armco coming out of the kink!

Sorry about the focus, think my camera has had it.

Bret, still the same way at Barber.. you cause damage to the track, you are presented with a repair bill.

Tim, track was wet so speeds were down, kept me out of the armco

Bit of stomach in mouth moment there David, what tires were you running for the event? We had a track day at wakefield earlier this year an had a wet track, felt like tippy toeing around the entire circuit. i believe i left the track 4 times in 4 sessions.

Look where you want to go and not at the wall. What I like about the photo is you're looking at the back of the "Vette". Nice save.

My region of PCA has a rule the third time you spin or go 4 off in a single weekend you're done for the weekend. Last time I drove the 951 in the rain, I spun in the first and third sessions and had to back off the rest of the weekend. I learned a lot though.

I'm glad you got the photo evidence from outside, David. That's a great shot.
