    Track Mode ... The New Drift Mode

    Had a blast yesterday at Laguna Seca Raceway with Exclusive Track Days for the their high dB day. It had rained the night before so the track was green and 59F was the high of the day so grip was fleeting.

    I broke into the 1:47s


    And had an off in turn 6 in the morning.

    Offroad meets black flag.

    How bad did Control spank you for going 4 wheels off?

    Also, so much less dramatic looking in-car video compared to the pictures.

    I agree, I almost didn't post the onboard but try driving into the dirt at 60 mph next time you're on the freeway

    Frozenspeed, Jochen Van Cauwenberge took these awesome photographs. Follow him on IG, he takes incredible motorsport pictures. These shots of me are pedestrian compared to his other work. His attention to detail is incredible.
