Ladies' Day photos
I was very excited about Ladies' Day at High Plains Raceway, as indicated (hopefully) by the Octane Chicks shirts we got for everyone. This would be an event for Octane Chicks all over! It promised to be a great time, filled with positive energy.
Women of all ages showed up, and while this was ostensibly a Porsche Club event, there were many different kinds of cars, from BMW to Lotus to Mini to Corvette to Viper, and many others. Some women were brand new to high performance driving school of any kind. Others, such as chief driving instructor Kathy Fricke, were racing veterans.
For the actual driving runs, we were divided into four groups, based on known experience and ability. I was hoping to do some socializing, meet some other women into motorsports, but of course the motorsports managed to get in the way. I had a great time on the track! The day was perfect for it. No rain. But by afternoon, the temperature was pushing towards 100º and we were all doing our best to stay in the shade. We drank up all the water and the organizers had to run out more than once to pick up more to keep us all hydrated. On my first run, my instructor showed me a new line in turn 5 — one that very few people seemed to take. (I'll blog about that separately, maybe post some video.)
But this post is about pictures. Zettabyte and I snapped a bunch, and rather than split them up in separate posts, I'm posting them together here. Enjoy!
