CJ - thanks for sharing. Felt like I was there. you need to break the habit of leaving your hand on the shifter though; bad things could happen quickly. Nice quality video.

My car has been popping out of third gear otherwise I would have both hands on the wheel. At the Glen there is a lot of 3rd gear running. I decided to skip the Sunday race because of the trans problem and associated risk. I almost skipped the Saturday race too. It was popping out 2 or 3 times per session and totally unpredictable. The trans is about to be pulled and repaired for Sebring in February.

No, he has a standard paint scheme. That is his Vintage race car vs the BaT car being his SCCA 1994 championship car.

Cliff, it looks to responds to the steering wheel more tidily than your old racer. Looking good!

I did this "edit" just for fun. Too bad it's not real. :D

Not very. I am used to motorcycles though. Racing the bike on the banking at Daytona is many times more intense.

Took a fall there in the nineties and lost a full day of memory. Wished it had been one of my wedding days instead.
