I don't see it the same way. On these special HOD days that I've done, usually there are only about 10 cars per run group and if one has the stamina, you can get in well over 3 hours of track time during the day. So on a per lap basis I think this works out about the same as a regular day, plus the advantage of a lot less traffic during each session.

I'd go and pretend to be a GT3 (I can 'keep up') but I'll be in Maui. John's great fun to play with ...

cool..
996flt6 LOVES traffic. he likes to chase and be chased.. how else will he visit dirt

i think it's good enough for 996flt6. he can't last more than 20 min at a time. i on the other hand did 315 miles in ONE day... until my mechanic broke me record. i think he did 360 or so in ONE day. (that's all track miles)

Hey Tom, who set up your car? Jerry Woods? I'm wondering who I should have set up my 930 when it comes home.
