Default NOLA Video anyone?

Does anyone have a video from NOLA from a known good driver? I have a race coming up there and would like to watch some video before I get out there. I always hesitate to trust a youtube video because you never know what you're watching.

I have a video on 200tw street tires from a couple years ago...

First time I had ever been to the track. It is pretty easy to learn, and super flat so you can easily see the next turn(s).

I believe my best was a 1:51.192 on a BFG Rival. I had ICE mode issues earlier in the event so I was a little hesitant to really push the brake zones. This was my first event with the AP racing brakes and I was swapping Ferodo pads trying to sort it out.

This was with a completely stock engine, DSC controller and I think I might of had the DSC RT dampers. Pretty much nothing else from a performance stand-point. Don't remember if Speedo is accurate based on wheel size, or if I had fixed it in HP Tuners, so use caution relying on that data point.

Check Chet's page. He's pretty damn fast. I believe he held the record for his class with NASA at Cota for a short bit. Can't remember his name here but he might see this post.
Just go thru and find all his Nola vids. If it's a black C5, that's his new fully built car with an LS3 and aero. He's got older videos in there of his white C7, so he's got experience with both.

Thanks guys! Jason Hart is definitely fast AF. Found a video of him with good on screen data! All videos were helpful.

And yeah, that's a really flat track with only one wall to worry about. Should be fun. It's just a Lemon's race, but they're clusterfawks. There is no following anyone through a turn and learning anything. I did a race at my home track and swore off Lemons, but I couldn't pass up a chance to do it in a decent Lemons car at a track I've never driven.

I'm actually debating on joining as a pit crew for some locals that are working on a Lemons car for that race at the end of the month. I think they'll likely need a ton of help and I'm really interested in helping. Only problem is my home SCCA group has an autocross that Sunday and I don't wanna get behind on points. But I'm really interested in creating my own lemons car with some local buddies (I'm about 2 hours west but go to Baton Rouge and Nola monthly for AutoX).
Nola is pretty straight forward. I've been on it a few times for the Xtreme Experience.

I don't know why anyone does Lemons. By the time you get a car to spec and safety and all that, it's not that much cheaper than running WRL. And it's absolute **** for racing in an unreliable car. Just spend a few more bucks and go WRL. Splitting with a team, it's literally probably $1000 more per person to buy a spec miata. Oh, and when you're done, you have a Spec Miata, rather worthless car with an expensive cage.
For $1300 I get to drive with some friends for 2 days on a new track which is a pretty decent deal (this includes shipping car, lodging, a few of the meals, etc). I honestly wouldn't do it if it was a local track though.
