Here is a video (http://videos.hspn.com/index.php?videoid=16) of the EXACT track configuration (#13, clockwise) I drove at Buttonwillow Raceway on January 14, 2005. The footage was shot from the front passenger seat of a heavily modified 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX STi (details here). The car in the video turned about a 2:05 – 2:06 lap…on a warmup lap! My best lap was a 2:12.678 in my fourth session which I think was still very good for the car I was in and for being unfamiliar with the track (http://www.redlinetrackevents.com/times/1_14/int3.pdf). I KNOW I can go faster!!!
Btw, I dedicated my last entry to those three men because:
- Pastor Jerry (said with full acknowledgement that he is a sinner like me and all of humankind) was formally ordained on Sunday, January 22, 2006
- Pastor Ted (also said in the same way above) had surgery last Monday, January 23, 2006 and is still fighting the good fight through the grace of God
- Edwin Fung went back North for his second semester on Monday, January 23, 2006
In closing, wasn’t 24 good tonight like it is week in and week out?
Take care and God bless, everyone!
