    This is a long one (52:32) but worth the time.

    That was really good.

    I don't regret taking an hour of work to watch it.

    Now to win a couple lotteries.

    Harris reports the P1's peak lateral G during those tests was 1.8G! And that, somehow, was on both types of tires.

    Here's a full lap in the P1 on the stickier tires.
