Got a chance to get some cheap tracktime ($140 for 3.5 hours) at Thunderhill on Sunday with Bonnie and T.E.A.M. She runs some great events and while the groups are not as fast as NCRC it should be good fun. I’ve only been to Thunderhill once before and that was on a wet-dry kind of day which is never good for building a good rhythm. I even had my first (and so far only) spin while coming out of turn 6 – the entry was dry but the exit was wet which led to me losing the rear and doing a full 180. Even though I stayed on track and did no damage to the car it really drove home the point about how easily things can go wrong and how quickly you lose control. Everyone should get a little bit of track time as it makes you a much better, safer and more controlled driver on the road.
