Lap time details


This was my first track weekend at Hallett. Third HPDE event overall, my first HPDE driving solo with no instructor. My best lap was during the first session of the second day (5th driving session overall for the weekend).

I was sliding more than I would have liked in a couple turns, but I kept control and had a decent line through most of the turns. There's plenty of room for me to improve as a driver; stickier tires or better brakes wouldn't have helped as much as a more consistent racing line and consistent braking points.
