I managed a best lap of 1:03.60, which is pretty decent considering the cold weather and old tires. The new transmission shifts smoothly and I often found myself hitting the cutoff in third gear, due to the new final drive. I think that the new track surface will generate better lap times this year. Will I see some 1:01's? After a few laps, a severe vibration appeared and I pulled off the track. When the vibration did not clear up after changing to street wheels, I decided to leave the car with my trusty mechanic Marc. Hopefully, there is nothing seriously wrong with the car.
I also got the opportunity to drive one of the cars on my "List of Cars I Would Like to Drive":
My advanced students did really well and many race licenses were handed out. The extreme weather conditions allowed the students to experience a wide variety of track conditions and the result was probably one of our best ever schools.
Here are a couple of photos of my Civic taken by professional photographer Jeremy (JAG):
