Here's a good one of me trying to chase down a McLaren MP4-12C at Gingerman Raceway in my Mustang. I was a bit sloppy in the beginning and kept getting held up by traffic and when I finally caught up to him, hit hit the pits! :mad:

I have a few on my YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3PUl4H0ge8NSl_le308UpQ/videos

Here's one of my sessions at AMP in 2014 on the stock Goodyears.

One of my sessions at Miller Motorsports Park for the Octane Academy.

This was a TrackCross at NCM in an Ecoboost Mustang when they first came out.

We did an AutoX at NCM for our OctoberFast event this year. I was on RE71Rs.

@xBoosted I just went to AMP this past weekend for the iTrack event. What a track! Can't wait to go back! Anxious to see how the time differs between the ST & RS. 18x9 Team dynamics with 245/40 Michelin Cup 2s

AMP is pretty awesome (not as good as Road Atlanta though), I drove it awhile ago:

Sebring at night is fun. The lights work well there. I've driven VIR overnight and they didn't have any lights.. and the lights on the race car sucked so it was terrible haha

CMP is fun, but it's not a destination track IMO. Go there if you are doing it with friends or something but otherwise spend the time and money on Road Atlanta, VIR and Mid-Ohio. All of which are awesome! I should have video of all of those on my channel but may have been too lazy to upload any VIR videos. I need to upload Laguna Seca and Road America videos too I think..

Too lazy :)

Dave,

Good to see you here. Do you have one on order yet?
Yep. Although I'm seriously considering cancelling and just buying a Z06, Cayman S or similar. Not sure the Focus will be that great of a DD over any other Focus and it'll get such little track time (where it would shine IMO) that I'm not sure I can justify 40k for it.

Haven't decided yet though.

These three videos are from a car I sold in 2015. It had 318 horsepower and 246 torque at the wheels.

Watkins Glen - 2:02.6 - The Glen was repaved after the 2015 NASCAR race, so this shows the now-former concrete patches. Time for drivers to find new pavement markers!

Mont Tremblant - 1:51.6 - Nice, sharp, full-sun view of this incredible track. You can see why F1, Can-Am, Grand-Am & Champ Car ran here back in the day. If you have the chance, go - you won't regret it.

Lime Rock Park - 59.4 - Sorry for the shaky camera mount and the slipped-down mirror! This one is probably of interest only if you've driven the track.

Took my Van Diemen over to NCM for their Track-X event. Was an absolute blast, I've always autocrossed this car so it was fun to finally get a taste of what it's like on track. Currently geared for autocross too so I was definitely gear limited.
