Ask Steve about my 4 offs in a row at BW during last club race there - everyone was all up in arms and busting my b*lls including the guy on the PA

Then I decimated the track record

Going off often and vigorously is good for your health

[QUOTE=Spyerx;14029358]Haha that is the most innocuous place to lose it. Lower speeds and the track is so wide.

That corner is a PITA. It's off camber, it's decreasing, and just a headache. So I was trying to go in hot, get some rotation, get it back to shoot out to the next corner

Good to see a pampered GT3......

I've always had issues with the entrance to that corner and trying to set it up. Then again I had problems with the next corner too, and that other corner. But if you aren't pushing it what's the point ?

Not the GT3, this was one of my first track days in the Cayman, but I think it is a good companion for your dust-devil clip....

That looks like the exit of T12 running clockwise at TWS, exciting.... I seem to recall you having an exciting moment going into T12 at COTA, am I recalling correctly?

Perhaps first spin that day. If you're not spinning, you're not trying!

Here's a buddy that was trying very hard...

Going off is good, but the fine radioactive BW dust, not so fun.

Oh man, most don't go off BEFORE the bump, the go off hitting the bump and jumping to the right then spin to the left. Good form!

Ok, BW radioactive dust. I did some research. URBAN LEGEND.
There is a toxic waste facility about 6mi to the south.
But the legend usually is "button willow raceway was built here on top of a radioactive dump because the land was cheap" Is false.
Now is that dust from the dump making it's way into our runoff areas? Maybe!
But it's also making its way into your food (Bakersfield is a huge food supplier for CA/US) and your water (the aqueduct is like 1mi away).

Yes, got on power, did not unwind, then slow hands sealed the deal...
I think it was Blue(one up from beginner) run group. I love the death grip on the wheel...

Another TWS classic:



I will dig into the archives, I have LOTS of GT3 agricultural excursions...

Here's my favorite value increasing moment at BW. If you haven't experienced the dirt tsunami, you haven't lived
