We had a track day at Palm Beach International Raceway doing hot laps and well in to one of the hot laps came in a little too fast creating oversteer and loosing control. It’s all about seat time and learning from your mistakes.
What’s a Hot Lap?
Hot-lapping typically refers to a motorsport in which vehicles are driven around a race track without actually competing for a position or any other recording of performance. Multiple vehicles will typically be on the track, but no passing is allowed, nor any contact.
