Wow GC, there is so many great things to say about this! First of all - major KUDOS to you! I just finished watching both vids in their entirety and they were great.
First of all, what a great circuit. A good amount of difficulty but certainly drivable by a wide range of skill levels. That right-left complex really gives your tires a run for their money, I could hear them screaming from up here in Canada! And that little upward hump where there is slight decompression looks like fun, it by the sound of your engine it seemed like you took a slight bit of air a few times!
Camera work was brilliant, not sure how you have it set up but it felt like a true onboard race cam. It would be cool if they had some external cameras so we could see your RL diving and leaning into the turns, especially that right-left complex.
I also like the mix of cars that were racing. Not sure what the class requirements were, seeing as all the cars racing seemed to be all over the map. Found myself cheering for you, URGING you to get past that damn Miata! Impressive though, out of all the passing you did, you only got passed once and it was right after your back end stepped out. Kind of surprising though, didn't think a vintage Mustang would be able to outhandle the suspension of a modified RL.
And finally, I have to thank you because you've made me truly proud to own an ION QC (even if it isn't a RL). To see what this car is capable of is just astounding. And as for your driving style, it was beautiful - great lines, and very smooth (just like Speed Racer in the 2008 movie!). You approached the turns with excellent angles and could hold closer than everyone I saw in front of you. Being a HUGE F1 fan (I just came back from watching the Canadian Grand Prix last weekend) I am so stoked to see a RL duking it out on a road course. No disrespect to the many here that drag or street race, but for me, road course racing is the most elegant and sophisticated form of racing. To see the top line of the car I am driving perform like this was amazing!
Well, I may eventually have to deviate from being a poser and actually begin performance mods in the future. Keep up the good fight GC, show the world what RLs can do!
