Thanks to Jae Lee, Dan Chambers, Mark Curran, and Justin Salzman for taking the time to teach me this new track since it was my first time here.

Here is the video of my TT, both in the 1:59s

Great job Alan.

You were patient during the weekend building up your speed slowly after you learned the line. Very good driving and you had a great line.

:surr: PDKs are amazing. Was there a time during that lap where you were on the gas and the RPMs dipped below 5K?

Clean laps Alain, bravo! You had good coaching from some of the best and learned your lessons well. Getting kinda fast now! :beerchug:

If i was on the gas I don't believe so... actually only time I was a little below 5K RPM was on Off Ramp.

Second video has RPMs with data overlay.

Nice job, Alain. Good line, great car control and smoothness ... excellent results. It was a pleasure working with you. Thanks for being a great student and applying tips gradually, and decisively. Sub-2:00:00 for the first time there is outstanding. 8)
