I had two good students, one with a Mercedes SLK230 and one with a 1996 Nissan 300 ZX non-turbo. In the 300 ZX, we were driving behind another student in a 350Z, who happened to be my student's father (and the owner of both cars!). I bet he was a bit surprised at how we were able to keep on his bumper, despite the power disadvantage.
Another good thing happened Monday: I got my repaired camera lens back (the repair, although not 100%, was free... thanks Sigma!). I grabbed a few quick shots around the paddock. There is a wide variety of cars this year, as can be seen from these few photos.
