Nice job Jason, both the video and the driving. You seem to have better situational awareness than some of the non-novices around you. [Smile]

Nice Job Jason, I love that song.

Watching your video made me think, for 1 second, that Miata's aren't totally gay to race! [Big Grin]

You've definitely got skill, keep at it. Great driving for your first season.

Anyone know why some youtube links don't work for me? I get all the text displayed instead of the actual page. If I go search the title and click on it I can view the results but the link doesn't work for me.

I resemble that remark. [Wink]

BTW, Jason, doesn't that loud music distract you while you're racing? [Big Grin]

OK I got it working...I needed a macromedia flash upgrade.

Thanks for the PMs.

Is anyone else as scared as I am at the mere idea of Brad thinking? [duck]

Heck of a video, you really had a good sense to know when you could stick it in and when backing out of a corner would be a good thing.

I must have watched the wrong video. What's the link to the video with the song:

Actually, if you watch closely that's you and I he waves by at 1:30. Nice clip. [Smile]

Either your suit is sized wrong (sleeves too short) or you need better gloves. Your wrists appear to be exposed most of the time. That would be a Bad Thing (tm) in a fire.

Great vid, though. [yep]

Nice job, Jason. I would feel very comfortable racing with you - good sense of where to give and where to take. We should all be that attentive when we race.

Man, are you smooth with the wheel! My videos look like I am driving offroad - I definitely yank the wheel around more. Maybe you can give me a few pointers. See you at the track!

DJ, I think the "yanking" of the wheel might be the fast method, just from viewing other's videos? I personally think I need to be more agressive?

Please other council members, post some video...help me get through the winter, sick of my stuff already.
