this is my "best" lap for the footage I had from the event. This is the first morning sesssion and I had never driven the track before. 3rd lap was my best time @ 2:45 but I was still learning the track. I did better laps later that day (2:27) but have no video footage due to technical glitches. COTA is awesome and I had a good time until my motor ate itself. Apparently I was meant to have multiple technical glitches that day. The 2:27 lap was awesome and I was pickup up pace - for reference a good lap time for my car is a 2:11 which one of the club racers did - I speculate that I was going to get down into the 2:21 to 2:24 range by the end of the weekend, but alas we'll never know until I go back.
COTA now represents unfinished business for me and I'll have to go back.
