^ I was slower this time around. I think I only did one lap at 9/10ths and I did a 1:49.5. Most of day I drove at 8/10ths, you will see in the video I occasional shift into 4th between T4 and T5 (then back down to 3rd in T5) to keep my temps low. I heat soaked my car and tried to shift way before red line.
At the end of the day I regularly "cruised" the long straight in 5th gear @ 100mph. I loved the pavement though, I did one 50 minute session @8/10ths in the afternoon.
