This might have been better if I had some onboard footage from St. Petersburg.  But, I don’t so this will have to do.  The following footage was taken during last week’s Star Mazda season opener.

Take a ride with Star Mazda rookie Connor De Phillippi at Sebring International Raceway.

It will be hard to miss, but make sure you pay close attention to how deep he drives the car into the corner.  He does a tremendous job under braking without hurting his exit speed (at least during the opening laps).  As the race wears on, it appears that he is battling a little understeer on entry which, in turn, creates a snap oversteer at mid-corner to exit.  Although it doesn’t seem to hurt him much.  Enjoy.
