Track Night

SCCA Track Night in America at Gateway Motorsports Park, St Louis, Mo in my SLK55. This low speed pace lap of NASCAR Turn 4 (banked) and front straight.

Interesting view.


Oddly, slow speed on banked turns makes me woozy, but high speed doesn't.
go figure.

It was shot with a hand held phone. Drivers view over steering wheel.

At high speed no time to get woozy. I was doing 80 mph on the banked turn.

Did you enjoy your experience?


Any tips for Alonso, giving it his first go?

I t was my second track night and I had fun. The SLK was good on the oval portions of the tack, but those little Mazdas keep passing me on the infield portion.

Tip for Alonso: Don"t get woozy.
