Shame we didn't have more time to hop in and out of each others cars throughout the day... Awesome day otherwise though.

Wasn't until that session that I even saw you on track but I followed you for a few laps and then hung back for you to follow me for a couple. Looked like you were doing well. Unfortunately the camera angle in the car makes it a little difficult to easily follow your lines but I think you were definitely doing the right thing throughout the day in that you were trying slightly different lines to see what worked/felt best to you.

The corner I struggled to find my ideal line most on was 2.

It really does look like late apexing is going to be faster, but I just couldn't find the testicular fortitude to hold the car out there on the right side. In the end I went with in to first apex, out to mid track, then back in to second apex.

I could likely have taken more speed into 1 and 8, but my sensible head took over and said "Don't be silly."

I was taught that Turn 2 could be taken as a single or double apex bend.

It's a freaky turn, because when done right you're flying and it feels like it's going to let go any second. Talk about testicular fortitude!

At the NSX Expo I took driver training at, two NSX's spun in turn 2. It's wise to be cautious with that turn.

I've always treated T2 as a double apex.

Good effort.

Whose lapping day was that ?
