    Default Autobahn Country Club South Track

    These are the first 2 sessions of the day. I was very disappointed with my driving in the first but the sound is SO MUCH BETTER than last time! Thanks to Croc for the audio thread and last minute tips!

    The second session was a bit better, starting to push a little more, shifts were a little better ... But the GoPro battery died 2/3rds through the session .... Grrr

    3rd session went well ... Had my fastest lap of the day and more consistent times as well

    The mic battery died before the 3rd session ... And rather than subject everyone to crazy wind noise, I just picked some good driving songs

    Firstly I have to laugh. Gopro battery dies. Mic battery dies. Welcome to my frustrating world of trying to do a good track day video. When it comes together as it does in the first session then your (or my) driving or track conditions are not up to the standard you want to show off - it can be infuriatingly difficult.

    Second, I have to say again thank you for the invitation to play hooky from the conference I was attending. Given I was speaking, I felt the organizers would not be that understanding!

    After reading your audio thread, I knew you would get a kick out of the tech issues! You are welcome for the invite! I completely understand having to work and other commitments ... Priorities! I have a sneaking suspicion we will see the track together at some point!
