At end end of two full days at Ford Performance Racing School, and thanks to excellent instruction and track conditions outside of Salt Lake City, Utah, I had a strong 1:50 second run on the West Course of the Utah Motorsports Campus, in a great ‘rabbit and mouse’ driving session.
Instructors normally get into the low 40’s (meaning, 1:42 to 1:44 range) on the same course, so I feel good that I almost broke 1:50 on my first day in a new car, and on a new track. While the GoPro is primarily focused on my driving style and hoped-for smoothness in the driver’s seat, you can see some of the action with the white performance Mustang GT ahead of me.
Before the instructor entered the track, I was the driver receiving ‘point-by’s,’ meaning I was the one passing others on track. This time, I was the one providing the ‘point-by,’ but I enjoyed the cat and mouse that followed. The instructor being in front of me made me faster. I am convinced that I could have gotten my time down into the 1:48 range with another track run. Next time!
