I left Fort Lauderdale at 3:30 am on Saturday (on no sleep) to be at Sebring for when the gate opens at 6 am. I ended up being the first one at the facility and waiting for the gate guy to let me in when it was still dark out. The car ran well all day, my gps receiver indicated a maximum speed of 124 mph. In my second session I ended up having a big spin at turn 15, similar to this video only I didn't go over the curbing. My friend had car trouble and had to replace his coolant expansion tank so I was also the last to leave the facility, making it my own version of the 12 hours of Sebring. I drove a total of 500 miles (200 on track) in one day and realized that driving on a race track is less fun without sleep.
