But it's noticeable how much faster you start. Knowing the track counts.
Yeah, she also knows to stomp on the brakes where I’m like “but I must save them so that I can go longer!” Meanwhile feeling like I was nearly going off the track. I clearly didn’t learn from my Nurburgring laps as found below in a ring compilation video.

I’m not ashamed to admit that @ninjacoco can drive and that I cannot. Practice will only help alleviate my shortcomings but that’s not as easy as it sounds. Though I’m about halfway through the lease and way under my mileage limit, I could of course do more trips down and maybe help improve my driving down at H2H. Harris Hill is such a good track if a bit bumpy. The owners asked @ninjacoco after introducing if I was going out before we even had the chance to ask seeing as how they’ve never met me. I was floored not only by the eagerness of helping get coco’s VW 411 going again but also to just let me go out and have a bit of fun. Up here things are very rigid and if you haven’t paid eleventy billion dollars to the track for dues as well as sign all the legal junk and had training, you’re screwed.
There might be some auto cross parking lot racing but I’m just not interested in that seeing as those are so small and the margin of error is nothing if you count hitting cones. This being a lease, I don’t want to possibly scuff paint.
I will drive what I call the Savagegeese Route at home because I’ve been using those roads for years before I even knew his YouTube channel existed. It gets old because it’s obviously a public road which makes things less safe. I’d much rather be on a track where I know everyone is going the same direction and there’s not houses and mailboxes or ditches just off the road.
