The Rough Draft

If you can't go through it. Go around it.

So finally got the link to the pics from my lap day. The bulk of them are at turn 5 A thru C with only the one being at turn 1 from early in the day as I’m getting used to pushing my car to my limits.

I’m already signed up for the 2019 season of track days run by Infinite Motorsports and will most likely be also participating in the Watkin’s Glen excursion as well. My shoulder isn’t improving and because of this, there a good chance my motorcycle riding days are if not over, I’ll be severely curtailed as to the length of my rides. Long distance forays are pretty much right out for me these days which truly sucks as a big chunk of my identity is tied up with my bike and the places we’ve been and the things I’ve done on her to get there.

Still, my JCW Mini allows me to learn new skills and still enjoy another facet of motorsport. I’m looking forward to taking Colin out on the track with me next year as he really does enjoy going fast.

The only downside here is I’ll be stuck waiting till May before heading back on to the track. I briefly looked at putting a Dinan kit into the Mini but after reading a couple of books on how to get more speed out of your car, I’ll be spending next year building my driving skills before making any mechanical modifications to my car. It’s pretty quick in its current configuration. It’s probably for the best to get a handle on that now before pushing the limits engine wise.
