Here are some video clips from my weekend at Laguna Seca running with unlimitedlaps.com
Very cool experience. The car did well except for the stock tires and brakes...really a lot of fun though...
Check out these clips.

That looks like way too much fun for you not to buy all of us a track day!

Nope, but every lap I kept it about the same distance. Hard to catch cars with more horsepower on Laguna. Damn fun though!!! At least no one was catching me!

Great pictures and video. I love that track. My uncle lives about 10 mins from there and I've seen many races there. Coopers Rule!!!

I love it, I would have expected to see you passing folks at the
curves but I just love the fact that you passed folks on a straight
away!!

KICK ***! Way to represent the MINI crowd! However, one request for next time: light your speedo, so we can track your speed around the course!

I think if you turn the brightness up on your monitor, you should be able to see the speeds through the course. I didn't turn on my lights because my headlights were taped up and I didn't want melted tape on my lights...

I hit about 90 on the straight and between turn 4 and 5.

I like watching the vids and watching the speedo. cool.

"Wholelap" video soooooooooooooo good.

I drove Laguna Seca many times between '69 and '71. I love that track. The "Corkscrew" is so awesome. One of the most famous sets of turns in racing, on one of the most under rated tracks in the world. A world class track that anyone can have a chance to drive.
