Default Have you ever been so thrilled to finally see a dry track.....

That your dumb ass forgot to allow for the fact that both the track and the tires were still cold?

Nice catch! Could have very different results with that wall.

Nice save Just enough of a "life lesson" that you'll remember that for a few years.

Awesome save!

Can count on one hand the number of nice weather track days I've been able to enjoy. If there is a track day and I sign up for it, it is guaran-dang-teed that it will rain, that is just my type of luck.

Probably the worst one was a 35-40 degree day that rained the. whole. damn. time. I swear it felt like I was in London or something.

Given that some errr....'fellow racers' ran with R compounds and not rain tires, there was a ton of carnage that day. I swear I spent more time dodging other cars bouncing off tire walls/guardrails and their parts strewn about the track than picking up much speed. I don't have video of this swell event (this was pre-goPro times) but it would have made an interesting watch afterward.

With how much damage there was, they really should have called it a day early. I did get out of my car and kiss the ground after the last session.
