Hey everyone!

As some of you may know, Thomas Holland runs a YouTube channel called "Reviews with T.H." and he's partnered up with OTA to run a series of videos promoting OTA and his journey through a couple of events in the 2017 season.

Hope you enjoy the series as it continues - it's really well made and is about to hit an EPIC milestone in terms of the year so far:

Very good job. I am left wanting more. How did the next Time Attack event work out?

I hate doing this but you'll have to watch the next episode to find out!

That being said, I am very annoyed that all you see of me in the ENTIRE engine install are my legs from underneath the car (blue jeans).

We're getting a lot of positive feedback from people outside of OTA and am very pleased to see OTA being spread out and about the non-racing community. Hopefully this means we see more folks out next year!

It's a nail biter! DDT is my home track whereas GP I was a total newbie so Thomas beat me there.

Will I have my revenge? Or will I fade to obscurity?

FIND OUT IN THE NEXT EPISODE!

Expertly produced! I binged all the episodes with as much enthusiasm as that inspired by any Top Gear film.

Sub'd for more episodes.

EPISODE 6

There will be a special addendum episode for Thomas and I to discuss what we thought about my first full year at OTA as well as any driving differences we have between each other (given that our cars are considered even by OTA standards).

I never did get to meet you in person but I watched from the side lines as you progress both with the car and your driving. I've never seen anyone nearly as passionate about the sport as you have been.

I my self am new to the time attack sport and I can clearly see the differences between a novice with some side driving instruction and one that is still grinding the rust off from a previous racing discipline.

Im comparison my car quite literally came out of a garage where it sat for 6+ years, had some new fluids put in, a cheap set of tires ( only to find out they weren't a good choice at all) and dropped onto the race track. Where I had to learn both the tracks I visited and the car I had literally 0 seat time in. Despite having a less than competitive level car I learned a pile of things from various folks ( and your videos) and had some of the best times of my life with a low budget car which didn't draw much attention ( or so I thought...)


Loved the videos, Looking forward to next season :)

Thanks for the comments Silex! Which car were you? Keep in mind, Thomas Holland (the silver 325i) made these videos. I helped with some physical help (camera or bolting on a damn exhaust) but these videos are not mine. I am helping him promote both OTA and his YouTube channel. I'm the yellow S2000, his nemesis.

Instruction is always helpful especially if the instructor is capable of adapting to the students rate of improvement. I'm involved in instructing myself and have been thrown a few situations where the students have varied from barely-able-to-drive/focus to he's-quick-now-what types and I found that in teaching, it helps me to become better as well.

I'm the little red ford escort gt #326 .

The only way to drive that car is adapt fast or eat rhrubarb ... it does not forgive mistakes
