Instead of spending wednesday riding dreams, as I normally would, I got in some mileage of a different sort.
As a christmas gift, my parents got the whole family 'the Stockcar Experience' at Pocono Raceway. It was unbelieveable. We rode with a pro driver to start with (for pointers and to show us what the cars were capable of), then we got behind the wheel by ourselves!!
I got to drive for 40 miles, which was 16 laps of the track. My max stats were 8100 rpm, which translates to 160 mph!!
The prof who led us the second set (8 lap sets) said dad and I were the best novice drivers he'd ever led. He also did some stuff that was def non-regulation with us. They had the path you were meant to drive marked on the track.. but after the 2nd lap with this guy (where he maxed us out on speed on the marked path), he had us diving hard lines into the turns, etc. the car seemed to defy the laws of physics!!
That was by far the fastest 40 miles I have ever traveled!!
