Driving School videos

Had a great time 4/21, 22. Great people, great instructors.
Unfortunately I picked up a nail or screw in my left rear tire after lunch so had to call it quits early. The Willow tire shop was closed and so was the shop in Rosamond. So I bought some Fix-A-Flat in an aerosol can from AutoZone which was good enough to get me home. Yesterday I had the tire cleaned out and patched.
One video is from the Performance Data Recorder that is built into my Cadillac ATS-V. The other is from my friend Steve in his BMW - some GoPro and some handheld shots.
Enjoy.
Blessings.
Roy.



P.S. The voice speaking numbers in my car is from my audible G meter that gives me real time feedback on how hard I am pushing the car in the corners (3 is .3 G's, 4 is .4, 1 is 1 G, 1 1 is 1.1 G's and so on). If I hear 7 or 8 in a particular corner I can try something different the next lap to get to 1 or more. If I consistently hear 1.1 in a corner, I know I can't squeeze any more time out of that corner and should look for time elsewhere on the track. A useful training aid for me since my butt calibration is not accurate.

I'm pretty sure it is steering wheel angle not front wheel angle. The go kart track is tight and my arms cross on the tightest turns.
