Hopefully not a repost. One of my bucket list tracks. Dion shows how to drive it.

I got a lot out of this video, and he's using the camera angle, freeze frames, replay and slow motion really effectively.
The producer in me wishes that when he needs to talk fast to get it all in, he either slowed the video or said less, though.

I also thought he did a great job with the slow mo and replay, but I would prefer a camera angle that includes the steering wheel so I can see when he is opening the wheel - he talks about it but we do not get to see it.

Hey guys thanks for posting the video and your feedback!! I will continue to work on these to get them better for you. I just made this one for a section of VIR and you can see me with the steering wheel:
I'd love to hear more of your feedback and if you like them subscribing to my channel means a lot to me. Hope to see you all at a track soon,Dion

Nice! I'm enjoying watching your videos.

I think you'd do a little better with one, not two, steering inputs to the right, before the first crest at the Uphill Esses. It means you'd need to delay it by a quarter of a beat.

LOVE the entry trajectory leading up to Oak Tree (from leaving the left edge of the road to the apex, through T11).

LOVE the car placement far left edge of the road at the entry (and DEEP) before decisive turn-in for Oak Tree, itself.

LOVE your pointing out the "investment" of throttle delay in Oak Tree.

Very fluid, very nice. Thanks for sharing.

Only if you saw your throttle trace moderated because of it, afterwards...

The goal is to take as much curb WITHOUT having to pause to collect the car because of it...

Thanks for posting! I've added it to my YT lists. I plan on driving Road America next Fall for the first time.

Very cool. Love the re-play and commentary. That's a fantastic video to watch as a refresher before a visit, especially when it's not your home track. GT3 cars are so fast.....love 'em.

It's funny, for casual DE stuff, you try to stay off the curbs there, but RA is one of those tracks that reminds you just how precious every inch of track is......So naturally you start pushing, and then that's when pieces of your car start flying off....LOL. The plastic side intake covers on my 987 are now zip-tied in, thanks to losing them both courtesy of RA curbs. The most impressive part is the staff/crew there were able to find them both for me. Top notch staff.

Great video. How about carrying into/down Roller Coaster and through Hog Pen?
