Hey there fellow track enthusiasts,
It's almost the end of the season, but there are still a few track days left for us maniacs that don't mind driving in not-the-best conditions!
A couple of weeks ago, I went down to Grobnik to one of the last track days of the season and the driving conditions were extremely difficult!
Most track day drivers (old-me included) are reluctant to drive in the wet and "waste" time even attending such events.
The truth is, wet and mixed conditions are the best...
It's been a while since you've heard from me. The track day season is well underway (or even getting close to the end), and quite a lot of stuff happened on my side!
I've been busy with some personal stuff, as well as replacing our 997.2 GT3 with a new track toy - the 991.2 GT3 PDK. Yep, a PDK. 😅 I'll get into more details about the decision later on, but so far it's a great track tool and I've already racked up more than 4.000 kilometres on the clock and did 4 track days so...
I've gotten this question more times than I care to admit. The answer depends on the goals you want to accomplish with your lap timer and your budget.
Let's take a look at a few things to consider before we jump into my suggestions.
Knowing and improving your lap time
In my last email, I talked about the various goals you can have when doing a track day, but apart from having fun and exploring the limits of your car, it's great if you can measure how good you are.
Lap times are hard facts...
Hey, hey! I think we can all agree track days are a lot of fun, especially if we end them with our cars in one piece. 😅
That said, track days can also serve as days where we can explore a new driving technique, test a car's setup or maybe practice our drift skills (if we're a bit naughty).
Through my years of doing track days and talking with you, my fellow track junkies, I've come up with a list of 3 main goals we, as amateur drivers, can have on a track day.
Why are they useful? Well, it...
