Wet Track Day @ Laguna Seca

I went to a track day at Laguna Seca last Sunday with a friend. We were hoping for a dry day, but ended up raining all day. We only had one session with light rain, and that was when I set my quickest time of the day. I'll have to go back when it's dry to see what kind of lap time I can do.

Anyway, here are some pictures and a video of that quickest lap of the day.

Cool pics, I guess it doesn't rain much at Leguna Seca?

to me it seems a little conservative on the driving...i think i would have gone a little more aggressive.

Everyone saying you drive like a grandma obviously hasn't drove aggressive in the rain.
