    Watkins Glen this past weekend with NASA NE

    Had a great weekend with NASA NE at Watkins Glen -- wanted to share a great shot taken of me being chased by the Patriot Missile of CTSVRACING.com. The Weather could not have been better - next event is an New Jersey Motor Sports Park (Thunderbolt) on October 26th and 27th.

    Awesome track. On my bucket list to get there for a road course weekend some day in my V. Watched races there but never driven. Heard it is a super fun track.

    Yes Patriot Missile (CTSVracing) and I will be at Thunderbolt with NASANE. We will be there Saturday and Sunday -- come on down -- sign up for the hyper drive if you have never been on the track ... good way to experience it in a very very controlled environment.

    Patriot Missile does Time Trials -- I myself will be in HPDE program.

    I do not -- but there will be video posted by CTSVRacing in the near future I believe -- that is their car in the corner of the picture behind me.

    Video from Alan's Patriot Missile doing his best Lap ever -- 2:12 is a target for a great lap and he shatters that.
    Enjoy -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...&v=vrEkXhmTZF8

    Another picture of my car at Watkins Glen -- You can really get a perspective of the elevation changes at The Glen in this photo-- what a great track.

    My son was at this event as well driving a Cobalt SS. He mentioned you to me and has this video of him following behind you about a minute in to the video:



    He also has a ton of pictures from around the track his girlfriend managed to take, she managed to get around the fences and the better pictures are towards the end of the gallery:

    I have a 2012 Black Diamond coupe very similar to yours. Perhaps I'll be there next year.

    LOL -- Clearly I brake too much - good video to hit that message home - never the less he did a great job in the turns -- but ... had i know he was videoing me, I would have disappeared from sight on that last straight -- but he did well and earned the point by.

    Thanks Alan -- the video helps me better understand your points about breaking and the trusting the car -- the car sticks like it is on rails and I was only doing about 70% -- the car's handling is rock solid in the turns - thanks to your help on setting me up with sway bars, springs and R-888s!!
