Buttonwillow is around the corner!

So I am sure everyone is excited for the last event of the year at Buttonwillow!

I have come to love that track and looking forward to driving it again.

Here is a video of my TT there last year for people that want to get familiar with the track especially if you never been there before because with all the turns it takes a little time to get used to.

Here is a great instructional video for Buttonwillow for drivers and instructors alike.
I know its a BMW... but try not to hold that against them.
Instructor has great hand signals and driver feedback.
This video will give a better view at normal speeds with manual shift points and deliberate driver inputs/reactions.
He is doing a nice smooth 2:14 easy practice lap time. (Fast 944 Spec time)
Enjoy and see you at Buttonwillow!

Like the hand movement of the instructor in that video Steve, done very nicely.

Not to change the subject, but after watching Mark's video this video popped up... oh man what a race ending at Seca between 2 GT2 cars, a 911 and a Corvette.

Have we ever run this Sunday schedule before? If so, how did people like it?
