I've seen a few wrecks there non of them real serious fortunately. I've heard of people loosing it in the carrousel and ending up at bottom of the hill in the trees there.

    Does an instructor set in the car with you on some of the laps? Do you follow a lead car on any laps ?

    It was... it seemed a little faster than I remmember when I watched the video . I was sorting out the suspenssion setup. I was using my corvette rims 17" front 18" back and after lowering the car a rubbing issue that I was having when the suspenssion is loaded became a bit worst, enough to unsettle the suspension during the transistion on the corner exit. In the video you can hear it just before the spin (actually you can hear it in the lap before too). This are my street tires so the rubbing didn't bother me since it never happened in the street. I need a thicker spacer if I want to track the street tires.

    Nope, but what I did was talk to the track's owner and he pointed out a guy that has a lot of experience on the track. He gave me a run through using a map then let me follow him for a few easy laps to get familiar with the track and the line. It takes a while to get confortable because you really don't know how hard to brake or how soon, when to brake also how much speed you should carry around the corner (or whether the car will stick), and it'll take a good 20min lap session to even get familiar with the place. But use the time during cooldowns to talk to guys in the paddock, most will give you pointers and even let you ride along with them so you can see how they manouver around the course. I was surprised of how little I knew about my car's limits (because on the street you'll never get near unless you are been stupid). I have soooo much still to learn but it is fun seeing that you are getting faster and smoother. It looks like it going to be wet this friday but I may try for next friday if the weather looks good and my car is running (I'm getting a package on monday )

    yes.

    Because of the c5 rear wheel offset I have to run a spacer, I just need one a bit thicker.
