Driving with Shane (Again!)

The first time I ever drove on a race track my instructor was Shane Lewis, Daytona Prototype pro-driver.  I first met Shane April 20, 2005 in Savannah, Georgia at a High Performance Driving School named Sports Car Driving Experience.  The entire experience of high performance driving on a road course changed my life, I have since driven on race tracks hundreds of times and become a very confident track driver, in fact I do some instruction myself. 

I had the opportunity to get some private instruction with Shane again two years later, it was fun to get to drive again with my first instructor.  After my first session with him not saying much, the first thing he said to me was "Wow, I can't say to much, you were always looking where you should be, your hand position on the wheel was good, your line was good, your braking was good."  I said there is always more to learn, I am sure you can give me some hints.  We had a great time during the day, he pushed me hard around the track (I need that) and we had this little moment which I caught on video... enjoy!
