Just got back from a road course up in oklahoma.

Here are some of my vids:

I guess I'll start off with my spins where I made a douche out of myself

and the other one...

Here's one of my sessions where I was stuck behind a Shelby GT500 Mustang. Guy had just won the lottery apparently and bought this car. So this was his first track session ever. So he burns me in the straights but after 2-3 turns I'm on his ass again. Track etiquette: if the same car keeps appearing in your rearview, on the next straight let off the throttle and let him by; chances are you won't see him again. So, problem was he never let off the throttle in the straights to let me go by. Eventually though, I guess he noticed I wasn't going away.

Here's the fastest lap I got on vid that day. Time was a 1:44.7, I actually got a faster time on my final run and pulled a 1:43.2, but my camera died in the starting grid before my final run, poopie.

I've seen that Corvette out there before. Must be a regular.
I think you might be talking about Harvey. He has a yellow corvette like that one and he's ALWAYS up there. I think he lives nearby. The guy in the video driving the corvette, I think he came up with my group, never seen him before though. Seriously though, Harvey is fast as shit. All he has is a corvette zo6 stock except for a full exhuast and slicks. Fuck he's fast though, I got to ride with him one time, he's so calm while driving too, almost like he's on a sunday drive. He told me the fastest time he's pulled was a 1:24; that's just ridiculous.

I'd bet that's him. 1.24 = fast as fuck.
