Yesterday at the BMW club’s HPDE at PIR, I was working hard on improving my speed through turns 10-11, leading into the sharp right-hander shown here of turn 12 that is the entrance to the front straight. (So it’s a super-important set-up since most time is gained by speed in the straights.) And I had my first off-track excursion, too, before turn 12! I was carrying so much more speed than I had been and I braked & shifted a bit late and the car felt too unsettled to make the right hander of 12 without going into a tailspin, so I simply drove off into the grass with nary a bit of harm to track, car, or self. It was the best first off-track excursion I could have dialed up, so hurrah for that!
