Week 6 – A New Bogey Track……..

My Helmet Design VIR

Racing the Skip Barber in season 4 has seen me having to learn lots of new tracks, and as such this takes a fair amount of time. This season I am trying to race as much as I can so I am entering races when I am comfortable and safe, but not necessarily fast. So this trend continued and when we arrived at VIR South I found my pace several tiers behind my current iRating.

I just couldn’t get to grips with the track really. I had a fair and consistent pace but was several tenths back from my usual rivals. I guess some tracks work for you, and some simply don’t!

I had two races (both were great fun) and fell short of my 100-point-a-week goal. Hopefully it’ll be a drop week at the end of the season.

I also dived into a late model race on Saturday with a lightly developed setup. It was pretty tight and painful to drive towards the end. I think I scored around 50 points or so… not really invested in that series to be honest, the races aren’t as much fun as the trucks or road cars, but I’ll still try to get eight weeks worth of results in.

Onto the next week!
