With the risk of rain, only 15 cars turned up. Besides my F-car, 5 Vettes including a Lingenfelder (sp), Camaro, 350z, Lotus Esprit, RX8, and some others. Only the Lotus and I represented the great Euroland. It did not rain a drop, consequently it was fast! I saw 150 coming off turn 3 before braking for the chicane set uop before turn 1. What a a fabulous facility. They gave us access to the garages where there was power and air and we used the Media Building as our meeting place where they had high speed internet available for those who thought they were going to do some work between sessions. We ran as one group, 4 x 25 minute sessions or about 135 track miles which ate 19 gallons of our increasingly more expensive finest 93 octane. The 3 day Panoz school was going on at the same time so we ran literally non stop from 9 am to 2 pm when we handed it over to them. Apparently the staff found the 512 quite amusing as few of them had ever seen a flat 12 Ferrari and the noise to my self imposed 6.5 red line is apparently quite unusual for these guys. Anyway I had real fun and 130 plus on the banking is much harder work than i thought it would be. Lack of ABS is a challenge after my ITE A4 where I can mash the brake pedal pretty much as hard as I can. Relearned threshold braking and was surprised how much work the rear brakes do on this car. On all but the I5 Audis, the rears are just along for the ride! Rumor is that Panoz might pull out of Dallas because they are not getting enough support here to justify the effort. that would be a loss because they have a lot to offer smaller groups like ours especially those who really want to strech their cars as opposed to .... well I wont go there! I wonder if it makes sense to have a Ferrari/Maser event at this facility. They can do everything from catered meals in an a/c facility, a theatre for those Euro racing films that even Speed cant find the time to show, or Le Mans which Speed featured tonight.. Anyway just musing.
