    Invite or not, you should run GTL. It's a fun race. Different mindset. I would aim to run it all season were I you.

    Last few laps of the GTL is where you'll find that time. You're so tired your brain and body forget to stop you from going faster. If you're GPS recording at that point, reviewing that data will open your eyes to where you've been loafing it. Also, if you go into the race knowing you're not going to win and just do your thing, it is much more enjoyable and you can learn stuff.

    Re: 100 Days till LRRS

    Im still on the fence about GTL to be honest. Its a long race, and with red flags it can be way too long. Ill see where Im at come beginning of the season and make a game time decision. I have 4 core races from last season that I plan to do, and might add one or two more but haven't decided yet.

    GTL was my favorite race and nearly the only reason I kept the SV last year. If my fat ass can race it then anyone should be able to.

    GTL is the best track time per dollar you can get as a racer. It's like a long Friday practice, but everyone is actually on form, no loafers site seeing or breaking in a motor to hold you up. It's also long enough that you can get into a flow, picking something to work on and having plenty of opportunities to try it. Once you get used to doing a GT, regular sprints are nowhere near as tiring.
