...track inspires you to go faster ...
That ought to be interesting. It will give me a good excuse to spend a few weeks driving the 69 cars there. I've driven a lot of laps in the 67 Ferrari 312 but very few in any of the other cars. The 67 Lotus 49, Ferrari 712, Porsche 917, and 69 Matra are the only other cars I've driven there and probably no more than a dozen laps in each of those cars. I meant to spend most of this month driving the Nurburgring but haven't started yet. I'll have to do that this weekend.
I'm looking forward to your update. It looks nice and a little more variety will be fun. Thanks.
Ahhhh, Pete, if GAMMA is correct about it being faster, I bet you'll be pressuring the cars running 7:16 before long. With less than 10 laps in the Matra I'm almost down to 7:30 on the original track. I know with more practice and fine tuning set ups that I can cut a good bit of time off of that. I wonder if breaking the 7:00 mark in the Matra will be as elusive and challenging as trying to break 8:00 in the Ferrari 312. I've tried and tried but just can't get there.
