Here are a couple of photos taken by JAG Imaging:
I also got to drive a student's Shelby GT350, the track-oriented Mustang with the 526 hp flat-crank V8. It was a very pleasant drive, and the motor was not a torque monster... rather, it felt like the torque would come on nice and gradually, making the car seem easier to drive. Of course, I was not pushing it in a student's car, and actually did the whole lap in third gear. I have often said that Mustangs can make great track cars with only a few modifications, but this is the first time I try one that would need nothing more to be a track star.
I am heading to Tremblant to instruct next Monday, and I am eager to see what the Civic can do on a big track with lots of high speed corners.
