GHIT 0313: Track Day Recap from our HPDE Event with NASA Northeast at NJMP’s Lightning Track
Jennifer and Vicki had their first trip the track this year at the NASA Northeast HPDE event at NJMP’s Lightning track. Our event prep had a few issues with our Honda Civic inaugural shake down. The issue is still TBD at this point. Jennifer was in the HPDE 2 group and Vicki was in the HPDE3/4 group. Bill was primarily concerned with instructing two students this weekend, both we on a track for their maiden voyage.
The weekend was a mix of highs and lows, many highs and really only one low. We go over our NASA Northeast at NJMP weekend and how everyone progressed. Both Jennifer and Vicki improved significantly over the winter off season, and we go into several of their accomplishments and the details. The post race weekend hangover is real, and we all tried to stay focused and coherent with varied results, lol. Our next event is later this month at Lime Rock Park and then our back-to-back racing weekends at PittRace with AER and then the 24 Hours of Lemons. We also cover some of the trickier aspects of growing as a driver and some of the precautions to be aware of, especially if you have a significant improvement on your speed.
