Black run group at PCA is a badass crowd! I am usually in the yellow/green and find myself stuck behind many cars. Last time I was on Thunderbolt with PCA I got to the front of that run group my last two sessions and wasn't passed (OK ... well, a 997 GT3 RS did but that does NOT count ).
Yes, it was a great time. I was able to give point-byes VERY late since some of the cars has in excess of 500hp! It was a really good learning experience because my car was so "slow" compared to all the other cars. Not at all like when I'm running with CCA events.

I too got some nice rotation even with my r-comps in the octopus when my tires started to go off. Lots of fun!

Stay dry tomorrow and remember smooth!
