June 12th, day after our lapping nite. I Forgot how different this is. Had a good time on one of the tightest courses I've ever seen there.
I ended up with the 20th fastest time of 80+ cars on the NT01s. 6th in my class.

Still buckets of fun. If anyone wants to try this for the first time, lemme know I'll go with yah. Skills learned here go a long way on the big track. :nod:

The MCO site says the most common rookie mistake is to get lost. They have a map of the course online though...from the bird's eye view it looks alot more straightforward than looking for the laying down cones.

map shmap. get there early and walk the course as much as you can. they allow rollerblades, or skateboards. I usually walk it 3 times. walk it till you can close your eyes and see the run.. be the run.. be the cone. wall of cones. lolz.

I find the best way to learn the course is just to do a few ride-alongs before your first run. The course-walks are ok, but don't really give you a feel of how tight the course is at speed.

8 runs they did last weekend. July 2nd is kind of a downer trying to decide if I would rather party on the 1st or autox on the 2nd. I'm too old to do both :P

PS. that course was WAY too tight.

Rolling stop box! :) 7-8 runs, plus fun runs if you hate your tires.

Yeah, the slalom at the top of the lot and on the return were both really tight.

You can and you will. But not this year! I just bought some V710s so hopefully that will help. Next year I plan on focusing more on time attack :)
