Turns out my Firefox is a POS, vimeo works on IE. I must say, I think I saw myself in front of you a few times (sliding, choking). Looks like a load of fun futilely attempting to keep you at bay. See you at Hallett? :D

For the last few years I have not been able to make Hallett. One of my favorite places and I do well if I can get past The Bitch (almost remamed after me). Both my girls play softball year round. Summer is All-Stars and Tournament Ball. Almost every weekend is booked. It requires both parents on hand to allow both to play as they play at the same time more times than not.

I hate missing it. Perhaps you can come down to MSR-C or TWS. I normally don't miss those events.

Dude I'd love love love to hit that roval at TWS, but I don't have the scratch to make the trek that far. That transition from oval to road course looks like a damn art form. MSR has some features that TWS has that I like too (double apexes, esses, and 4th gear corners). I've already told myself that if I only hit one crossover event, it must be Hallett as that's a TX and Central crossover. I assume the bitch is that giant assed lump in the middle of a corner that essentially makes it 1 car wide?

You need to bring a pair to run TWS, at 2.9 miles and just under 2 minute lap, it is a 90 mph average lap. Multiple 4th gear corners around 90-100 mph.
Hallett is an awesome track / event!! Cooling has always been a big problem though being in June with 95-100 degree heat. Also, Hallett is only 1.8 miles and there aren't really any long straights to get the car cooled down. Just lots of upper 3rd gear to get the motor nice and hot. Glenn is a big fan of "the Bitch". It isn't a true race unless Glenn spins there at least once. :lol:

Nothing at Hallett is ever only one car wide.

The Bitch - left hand entry into blind uphill crest, over the top downhill braking into off camber right hander back up the hill in front of the grandstands.

And uh, don't be too far left at entry: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=btdQIelqCfc

We had an AI car a couple years ago get parked on top of those tires.

HOLY MOLY! Never seen that video before. Good thing it landed upright and not upside down! I doubt that autopower bolt in roll bar would hold up.

Did he get loose at the crest? He got loose on the exit, and also appeared to have the reflexes of a dead alligator in recovering the thing. Then again, it's probably one of those "I haven't been there yet" things. That's some expensive plastic right there. So after he spins is the downhill braking into off camber right hander then, huh? We've got one of those at High Plains Raceway, but your description implies this one has a twist. Is the braking area off camber too?

Doesn't have to be. I think his biggest issue was speed with how far left he was.

On edit...

Then there's [url=http://jalopnik.com/5390929/mustang-crash-gallery/[/url]THIS.[/url] Yes the turn can bite you but we've put 3 wide in there.

I really like the sounds of TWS, that braking down off the banking looks like an art form. For as loose as I am in low speed hairpins, this car feels pretty solid in the faster stuff. Plus a track full of it is something I have yet to experience. That said, Hallett is a 3 way crossover, so to pick between the 2 Hallett gets my vote.

I've seen that blue Mustang before (gotta love the roll cage feet through the floor), didn't realize it was Hallett. Same with the vette. The bitch must be real, I'm going to watch some CMC Hallett videos now to get a better idea. Then I'll probably still spin on it. :lol:

I think I heard there might be a shot of several cars going through there in the world famous AI/CMC Texas 2013 Year In Review... coming soon.

I heard.
