Driving in the Wet

Had a very wet day at NJMP Thunderbolt on Tuesday (2nd time now). It was with a new much more well off group. I'm used to seeing some exotic cars

Default Driving in the Wet

Had a very wet day at NJMP Thunderbolt on Tuesday (2nd time now). It was with a new much more well off group. I'm used to seeing some exotic cars at events but this was kinda silly. 2xFerrari, 1xItalian Tractor, 1xMclaren 570s, etc. and more 911s then I could count.

Anyway. They had some people there who were asking some of us to test out a new app for lap times. It's more "social" so you can see everyone's times if they choose too. Lap times not being to relevant fastest was 2:02 which is 40s slower then my best dry time. I was really kinda impressed with where my little Z landed.

Lots of aero apparently helps tons in the wet. From what I heard it was pretty much a fully built race car, didn't see it up close but massive wing, splitter and diffuser. The vet is what shocked me, looked mostly stock, that guy had balls & skill to drive that fast.

That makes sense. I would have loved to see it.
