Im sorry but how did he pass you (griggs equipped gt500 with a tvs) in a kr?
Not saying the kr is slow im just assuming its stock.

What can I say, he is a better driver. I went around the corner and saw that blue flag waving (which means let somebody pass) and I eased up on the throttle to let Tom go by. I'll get him next time; I'm still learning. Looking forward to the next time I can get on the track with him. Nice driving Tom. Well done.
Quite simple really,....... I'VE GOT THE SKILLS TO PAY THE BILLS....jk
Thanx for the compliment Dana,....but as much fun as it is to get adulation about my driving prowess, let me qualify by saying this....I had signed up for the "Advanced" (green) group, (based on my experience on that track) however, that group now requires a 4pt harness, stock seat belts are only 3pt. Therefore I was bumped to Intermediate (red) group. Upon seeing the roster in the Red group, I saw there were 41 cars entered, but my eye caught the beginner (yellow) group had only 17 drivers...for me it is about "track time", so i requested to run in the yellow group, and as you saw in the video, I had plenty of open space on the track...
In respect to Dana (idrathergolf), i believe that may have been his first time there (Dana, correct me if i'm wrong). And Sears Point is one of the most challenging tracks in the nation....
In the meantime, if you want to continue to shower me in praise, I will gladly accept...
and don't get caught up in my jet wash as I roar by...
