    I have a silver truck that has - literally - never been washed in it's life.
    It's the cleanest looking of all my cars. Silver/gray hides anything. Light rain and it looks like new.

    I will never own another black car again, just impossible to keep decent looking.

    For myself, I want to up the boost in the Legend car, and hopefully hit 2:15. Win the Libre 3 class championship if they dont kick us out of it.

    If the Nascar doesnt sell, I'm making some improvements, and may buy a new set of tires. I'd like to run a couple PT races, and get down to a 2:17. Maybe also go try Mosport with it.
    One goal achieved and I didn't even need to turn up the boost. Ran a 2:15.8. A little more power helped but I think I drove a lot better tonight.

    Goal one achieved x3. Now on the roster for instructing with BMW club there, so that turned out rather fantastic. What a neat track. I need to start a tremblant thread.

    Goal 2, maybe in a couple weeks.

    Did 2:17 repeatedly and managed a 2:16. Good enough.

    2:17 no problem, with traffic. Clean lap would be faster.

    Technically, we didn't blow a Barb engine. Because we didn't run it.

    Are the big boys supposed to look like a noob train in a beginners session?

    And has your perception of the big boys changed after this day?

    Not trying to be a dick.... genuinely curious

    First session of the first day is my answer. The 2 race Cayman raced there a few weeks ago. One of them finished second, so theses 2 knew the track. All the other ones were probably lost in the woods. The GT3RS was probably just studying my line. On the second day, at noon, I got to doit all over again with the same group of Cayman and for 26 minutes, we were still all a second or two apart doing 2:26 laps one after another and some of the big PCars got faster then us.

    Same group of Caymans 24 hours later. This time we are all doing 2:26 laps and I’m on street tires, while the race cars are on slicks with big aero. Pretty proud of that. We finish on each other’s bumper after 20 minutes.
