Recently flew to Florida to test some F1600s, get some solid karting practice in, and hangout with my good friend Vince. Was also my first time in the sunshine state. Did not disappoint, especially Miami. Oh Miami..
Tested the F1600s at the new Lucas School of Racing headquartered at Palm Beach International Raceway. Their racecars were equipped with paddle-shift transmissions, full video & data acquisition and some top-notch instructors and current-pros to match.
This was also my first time receiving coaching with full data metrics (lateral/longitudinal G's, brake/throttle pressure readouts, full GPS telemetry etc), as well as being able to focus solely on left-foot braking due to their paddle-equipped transmissions.
Needless to say, I learned so much about my driving and the areas I now need to work on from the data readouts, as well as from the great coaches such as Indycar's Pippa Mann, Mazda factory driver Tristan Nunez (who let me borrow his shoes bc I'm poor, thanks brother!), and the man himself, Mr. Randy Buck.
If you want to take your driving to the next level, then go visit the Lucas boys down in Palm Beach and you won't be let down.
All in all, had an amazing time in Florida and a huge shoutout and THANKS to my homie Vince. The hustle continues..
