Hey Ed, just ran 2 track days at Daytona in early April in my GT350. In the last session on the last day, I caught a rock thru the windshield just at the braking point heading into the Chicane on back stretch. Lesson is don't follow too close into that section because of all the rocks kicked up at both ends of the Chicano. I'll try to come out and see you if I can. Good luck and have fun. By the way I finally hit the 170mph club this last time out at Daytona. Got it several times at start finish line, makes braking to infield turn in real interesting.

40 cars is a bunch. I had 36 in my group in early April and that is too many. After the first day of 5 - 30 minute sessions, I would wait until about 15 minutes into my session and wait for others to drop out and come in and for the rest to get separated by their talent level, then go out and be able to pretty much run flat out the last 15 minutes of the session.

The only work done at the shop this weekend was me washing the Lovebugs and track dirt off my Bullitt. Got to spend the day hanging out with Brian and driving some laps. We had a blast and no Agricultural experiences. we did kill some Lovebugs and my tires will need to be replaced soon. I will be changing the oil in the B and with new dipstick Per Lamotta Performance we will be running 6 qts in the Bullitts from now on.

Yes it was a great time I am not sure how Brian felt being in the passenger seat but i don't think i scared him too much. it is very different not having control. that is probably the hardest part of instructing. I have been very lucky as there is a lot of run off and not a lot of concrete and so far had decent students.

Well Spent the day here at the house working on Victoria's 2010 Ford Fusion. Also got over to Matt's and helped him with the install of his Variable Timing Solenoid on his 2008 Bullitt. That makes 2 cam sensors, Alternator and now this solenoid. hopefully this is the end of his issue. While I was doing this Rick was over at the shop working on his son Thomas's 1994 Chevy pickup with a 350. I have attached another Video for your enjoyment. Let me know what you think, and please subscribe we have some cool things coming soon. one is a 1979 Trans Am. and the other is Orange and has an 01 on the side?
