Last Event 2019 – Laps, Inc. & Disaster

Hard to talk about this one – had an ice cold event today instructing with Laps, Inc. The track was cold, so each session I took a decent warm up lap. I had a solid lap during the second session, nailing a 2:45.45 – on the phone GPS, but the stopwatch confirms it. I was…

SCCA PDX 08232019 – Autobahn South
