Motion Sickness?

I instructed on Patriot a few years ago and felt a little car sickness, but the course was run in a clockwise direction and is totally different than what we did this weekend.  That was the first and only time for me.  Nothing this weekend after 4 hours behind the wheel.


This race was rocking and a blast to drive in.

I didn't get sick, but I've never been busier behind the wheel on a track.  Barely time to transmit on the radio, and then it was "back to work".  :)


 


Wow, that was fun but a bit frustrating in a Miata.  Getting hung up behind a fast, ill-handling car in the twisties was frustrating.  Most every car on the track held us up from the chicane through the pit in turn, meanwhile we were among the slower cars down the two straights.

Get over it already would you Jer. I had fun keeping you behind me thru all those twisties, just to walk you down the straights and have you catch me again. ;)

The track was fun and extremely busy, I was thankful for the red flag and a couple of FCY's during my Saturday stint. These allowed me to catch my breath and get my strength back.

I'm not bitter or bitching, it is what it is.  I had a blast in the Miata, but we had to work to get ahead of folks going into the twisties so we could walk away.  It seemed like I followed the red and white e30 for an eternity in the 2nd stint.  lol  I suggested to my team we build a turbo-charged 1.6 Miata so we don't get walked down those straights.  ;)

I went with ABRGlen to USAIR Shawano for testing before Road America. It was built as a gokart track, but they hold auto-x there a few times a summer and it's a pretty fun little course. Lots of ups, downs, and twisty stuff. After one of my sessions I had to breathe deeply for a few minutes to keep from losing my lunch. Good times B)
