The skies opened up just before the drivers meeting and the rain stopped just as the meeting ended. This was the 1st time I had ever been on a wet road course and it was intimidating to say the least. I had zero confidence in the level of traction and my first session was basically all sighting laps... I was a speed bump giving the wave by every single lap. (fast lap... 1:41.93)

During the second session things started to dry up and you can see some dry pavement and things were getting better. (fast lap... 1:24.19)

And about two laps into the 3rd session I turned my stability control stuff halfway off because everything felt much better, and I felt much better out there. For the last few laps of the session I waved by an Audi TTS that was about two cars behind me for a lap and then hung on his tail for the rest of the session. It was a blast!

Fast Lap 1:19.76 with a clear track

Nice. I have enjoyed the times I've gotten wet laps on a track. It's nervous but teaches so much car control.

Really getting excited about the 9th. Been watching videos of the full course. Looks so fun.
