    I'm starting this thread so guys can post up their videos. Only open track vids please.


    I don't see any area on the site dedicated to showing only videos so I though this would be a great place for guys to post up their track day videos. Lets see some live action of some of the cars we have on here. I'll start with a couple of my most recent events.

    Sebring International Raceway with PBOC for their Winterfest event Jan 2015

    This is a 5 day event from Wednesday to Sunday. They opened up a special 2 hour night run on Saturday for anyone wanting to try it. I along with a few buddies were all over it. This is the second year in a row that they ran this night run.

    Palm Beach International Raceway with the HPDE Oct 2015 Night Event
    I consider this my home track being it's only 35 minutes away and I've lost count on how many times I've run here. Used to be called Moroso Motorsports Park and had a different track layout. Few years ago it was bought and redesigned. Most people would tell you they miss the old track. At about the 4 minute mark I run into a Ferrari driver who just simply refuses to allow me to pass him. It isn't until I turn up the heat on him and cause him to run too wide off the track that I can finally get past. Oh and please forgive the language.

    Hooked On Driving @ Homestead Motor Speedway Night Event !!! WET CONDITIONS!!!



    This was a special event. Not only did it happen to fall on my birthday, but it was full of first timers for me. It was the first time I ran here at night. First time allowed to use the Nascar banking. And because a cold front passed over us that day the weather was crazy and added cold and wet conditions to the track at night. All first timers for me and I loved it. If you ever get a chance to drive in the wet go for it. Makes you a better driver. Here are my three sessions.



    Session 1
    At around the 8 minute mark is a flyby from a beautiful white Ferrari. I'm chasing one of my track buddies in the orange Mach 1 for most of the video. I finally catch him at about the 14 minute mark followed by me spinning out in front of him shortly after.

    Session 2
    At around the 3 minute mark you get a little sideways action. Put both my rear wheels into the mud. Ended uo having to come off and wash tons of mud off the back.

    There's a 'insert video' button that just allows you to paste the vid's URL. Then it embeds the video.

    I had my first real track day yesterday with the Brainerd International Raceway Performance Driving School. It turned out perfect. We had rain for the first 3 sessions, and dry track for the last 3. Here's one video so far. Obviously I had some oversteer problems, but I was surprised at how much understeer I experienced. I also had a tendency to turn-in too early.

    And here's one in the dry chasing a BMW. Not sure what model... 5 Series? I think he wanted me to pass at one point in the video, but I'm not sure. We were told to stay in the racing line and contract pass when wanted someone to go by. He moved off the line, slowed down, and never gave me an signal.

    Attended the Track Guys Sebring event this past weekend. We had a nice group of track buddies attend this event and most of them were in my run group so it made it really fun. This was my best session because everyone in front and behind me are friends so it makes you push a little harder. This was the first event where I was able to try out the new suspension and aero package which worked awesome. Also this was the first time I spun out at Sebring which can be seen near the end of the video.

    Not as much as me I promise you. I thought for sure I was going to get hit. Worse part of the track I could've ended up at.

    Seemed like most people were aware, but that Porsche and a few cars after were pushing way too hard.
