Went out to the middle of nowhere 3 hours east of Los Angeles to Desert Center, CA for a track day at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway. We rented out an on-site cabin the night before, provided by CVR, and were greeted with neighbors staying for the track event. The night’s air carried the smell of grilled hot dogs, smokey fire logs, and kumbaya melodies.
First time at any track starts with humble beginnings, but surprisingly I did a 2:10.7 the first session which I was super surprised about. I’m beginning to trust my tires a lot more. It was really difficult to improve that time honestly. On the last session of the day I just decided to sent it and the best I could do was a 2:08.925.
What really helped was a ride-along with one of the instructors. Shout out to my instructor Tim Seargeant for guiding me and giving me pointer. I shaved off about 2 seconds after his advice.
