AKA Bill’s Worst Race Weekend Driving – Ever
GHiT 0319: Race Recap: Our First AER Race at PittRace – Part 1 – AKA Bill’s Worst Race Weekend Driving – Ever
In the first part of at least three parts of a series, Bill goes over his first ever race with AER (American Endurance Racing) at PittRace last weekend. AER is a series that targets more serious racing and the cars on track were quite impressive. However, the team did well and we actually came in second in class on Saturday.
Bill on the other hand had his first ever bad track day and probably drove more in his head than on track. We thought it would be useful to do a quick race recap covering what happened on track and in his head, as well as what we are going to do and change going forward.
This episode deals only with Bill’s perspective and his internal issues. While he is still processing the weekend,
Also, Ben calls in for an emergency DwD episode to talk Bill off the cliff.
On an upcoming Part 2, we have another episode coming that will cover the race from the perspective of a friend who was working with AER this weekend.
On an upcoming Part 3, we will have the entire team from the weekend if schedules allow.
We also look forward to a future AER specific episode as well.
