Another great video Mitch. I like how you have the video camera set up to see traffic in the mirrors also.
Since you don't have the Sunday race, I'll post mine in your thread. :-)

Great driving Ralf! I tell you what ITB was where the action was this weekend. Lots of good battles and close racing!

I was my own worst enemy on Sunday. Totally over drove the car trying to take on Brian (yellow Miata) for 3rd.

Lessons learned: Sat, "It ain't over till it's over". Sun, "Smooth is fast" and order your brake pads EARLY, street pads on a race car SUCK!!!!!

What I learned was:
#1Dont install a fuel cell on thursday night and assume every thing will work fine....
#2 shut my big mouth, quit talking & fix the car!

Mitch I have been in that position, I carry 2 or 3 sets of used pads & rotors...

Fun Weekend! Good seeing yall!
desensitized to fast cars... we all grow up & it sucks!

Good advice! I REALLY need to work on my spares package!

It was great seeing all the fellas from Waterhaus/Bare Bones/Ecurie Lowcosse!

Ugh! What a crapy start. I got behind Woodard (ITR BMW) thinking he'd fly through T1. But after watching your vid, I'm glad things worked out the way they did. Could be picking yellow Me-Otter out of my grill right now.

I like where you positioned the camera! How many sq ft are in the cockpit of a Golf? Looks like a studio apartment! :)
