Cool video RKT ROY!

I didn't realize we were allowed to give rides at AROSC events?

You can only have a passenger if one of the persons is an instructor. I have been tracking with AROSC for 14 years so Terry considers me to be qualified as an instructor. I was wearing an instructor wrist band. I gave rides to Novice group drivers (except for Paul B who is also an instructor) to show them the line.
Blessings.
Roy.

AROSC License benefits

Yep, Nizam you and Roy are Official AROSC Time Trial License holders. 337 and #484 respectively.
You both can drag along anybody dumb enough to hop in your car and ride along on the track. The License also gives you something to show other clubs that you really do have experience when you show up at their events for the first time.
Our License has been used to get someone into CSRG and also helped someone get his FIA License updated after toooo many years away from the track.
And now a small complaint about Roy, or really about his car, the pretty new Cadillac ATS-V. It was a pleasant enough ride, Roy really knows the line and how to wring the most of that car. BUT, and a serious BUT, the air cond in the Cadillac doesn't really work so well when the ambient temp is 105, the windows are down (club rules on the track) and that Roy managed to top out at 110 mph before the last turn and 105 just before Phil Hill. I could hardly feel the cool air. Other than that I had a serious BLAST riding along. Thanks Roy.
OH, the counting you hear in the background is the G-Meter.

Data Data Data.
Terry Watson was teasing about how I like to analyze data from my track time.
Now I have more data than I know what to do with.
The Cosworth Toolbox coupled with my Performance Data Recorder built into the car gives me all kinds of telemetry I never had before.
Like tire temperatures and pressures min and max by lap, fluid temperatures, throttle and brake profiles, speeds, G's and so on.
I'll need to learn how to use all this data to improve my lap times.
Enjoy.
Blessings.
Roy.
