Re: WIL: Shannonville OTA 2017

1. The approximate mileage on the BRZ's stock Primacy HP's are somewhere around 7,350km. (With some 'aggressive' driving)

2. Camping at the track is really convenient, waking up without having to worry about 401 traffic is really nice.

3. 401 traffic never goes away

4. With this season being my very first on track I find myself learning at each event. I'll find myself making mistakes and correcting them, although I have no idea if I'm still doing it right. More track days and schools are definitely needed.

5. After spending all but one event with the people of OTA, I'm very glad this was the series that I joined. Each person I spoke too or had questions for was more than helpful and extremely friendly. I look forward to next season with you all.

Re: WIL: Shannonville OTA 2017

WIL: There must be a Santa Claus and
The timing system is amazing:
It can replicate my laptimes and make me look better than a professional Time Attack racer.
On Saturday it recorded multiple identical laps:
Laps 1 in all 3 sessions were the same 77.750 seconds.
Lap 3 of the first session and lap 2 of the last session were identical 77.751 seconds: wow for consistency!
Then I looked at Carsten Gieshens lap times and guess what- laps 1 & 2 of the first session were identical 75.504 seconds and laps 1 & 2 of the second session were also identical 75.754 seconds! Also laps 1 and 3 of his third session were identical! 75.005 seconds.
I don't have all the records except for my class GT1 and I wonder if others had similar experiences.
I had similar confusing results on Sunday which I questioned and was told that I am a very consistent driver! Are some drivers really that consistent or is the timing mechanism that consistently accurate?

Regards,
Mohamed

Re: WIL: Shannonville OTA 2017

1) Thanks again for all of the help in making Event 5&6 happen. In the 17(?) seasons I've been around this is the first time I can recall timing issues similar to what occured. Special thanks to the timing team for pulling something together allowing the event to occur, and to the backoffice for sorting through the data in order to build full year results.

2) Toyo R888r's on a 3,800lbs car appear to last around 5 track days with our tight courses. Still some tread, zero stick on day 6.

3) Coming down with tonsillitis and fevering while at the track is absolutely zero fun.

4) Coming down with tonsillitis and fevering while trying to tame a car with gravel level's of grip on tarmac is about as much fun as......<insert valgur phase here>

5) Five? 5 days later and I'm still not significantly better. Annoying

6) Great season in watching many new competitors come out and push the laptime bar. Those old times weren't set by slouches, cars, prep, or something else has pushed the expectation forward. Let's hope there are many repeat faces next summer!

You were driving that BRZ super hard! Your tires and alignment is likely what is holding you back at this moment. Not sure if you have camber bolts but get them plus some track tires and BOOM: set yourself free!

Track schools are always a good idea. I made it a point to attend at least 3-4 before joining OTA. If you're on the FT86club forums, I'm there as "Frost".

Red face Re: WIL: Shannonville OTA 2017

#1) I did better on Pro than I expected (Not a Shannonville fan)

#2) I did worse on Full than I expected. That needs analysis. (See videos below)

#3) Overwhelming the tires frequently, I think that I'll classify with lower SGT1 power for 2018.

#4) The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry. We planned early and had numerous volunteers assist at timing (which saved our butts to get accurate times), but you can always rely on computers to act up at the wrong moment. Thanks for everyone's patience.

#5) I'm grateful to everyone who grabbed stuff or started cameras for me so that I didn't have to climb back out of my cage.

#6) No one likes discussing car classification.

#7) I've learned a lot about alignment settings this year. And I've reinforced that I like a soft suspension setup.

#8) Will Parsons is the master of the BBQ! Soloing a two person job! Thanks, Will!

#9) OTA has a great culture of positive encouragement, and everyone steps up when needed. You're all an awesome group!

#10) I'm looking forward to the banquet!

SMP Full with mic mounted to the Borg Warner EFR 7670 Bypass valve. The Race Render conversion roughened the audio.

SMP Full with mic mounted too close to the exhaust. Sounds like a bridge-ported four rotor on power. Like an engine grenading with a sprinkle of extra chaos. This was my fastest lap. Shouldn't have gotten off the power to straighten it coming onto the front straight.

To be fair, both Paczynskis helped between other commitments as well as someone else who's name I didn't catch.

Think my wife volunteered to help with the BBQ / food stuff. Atleast she agreed to when Chris P. talked with us just after lunch.

And this is also something I've been shown in Grand detail this year. Far more people than anyone realizes are responsible for the success of the series. So many people help in little and big ways. The series belongs to the competitors . It has become what you've made it.

Thank you for that!
