What we did last week

The rotors didn’t crack. The sheet metal remained intact. Brake dust and track snot were produced in joyous abundance. Overall, it was a couple of glorious days at the Thunderbolt road course down at New Jersey Motorsports Park.

Blogging about this stuff can’t ever replace the actual experience. Oh sure, reading and writing cars (and the driving experience), not to mention ogling them in two-dimensional form (something we here enjoy a great deal, and enjoy sharing with all of you), is a fun way to pass time in between any spirited driving (which, with this thing called life getting in the way, can unfortunately be much too few and far between at times). But to appropriate and adapt a manufacturer’s corporate tag line for this occasion— driving, there’s just no substitute. And we consider ourselves fortunate that we get to enjoy this from time to time, among kindred spirits at that.

Next up: the fast, inimitable Watkins Glen! Or possibly Lime Rock. We are halfway through our track season. And as always, it has been magnificent.
