It’s a stupid game but it’s a Sunday.
Hola amigos. I have an old Corvette track car. It’s a C4 and it’s a convertible and it looks like this:
Have any of you done it?
I played hookey from work. I assume they figure I must have been hung over from a Superbowl party. Alas, I couldn’t have cared less.

I can’t afford a proper driving coach. If you can find a way for me to shave some time off of these laps in any way, I’d appreciate the feedback. I’ve watched older videos of me on the track and have been horrified at all the obvious mistakes I was making — but at the time I thought it looked like I was doing pretty…
