My rain tip: The painted lines might be slipperier. Or not.

My rain tip...avoid it if you can. :) If you can't be vewwy vewwy kehhful till you figure out where its slick and where it isnt. Which way would you rather lose a race? By crashing cause you were foolish or because you drove too slow but kept the car and yourself in one piece?

Well, that, too.

So, several years ago at Sebring, I was in a Subaru–and just got clobbered by all the GT3 Porsches. But it was a track day, so who cares, right?

But then it rained. :)
