That's a cool telemetry display on the video feed! I've never done a track day thing, so why is there tape over the mirrors?

Actually we were required to either tape over the mirrors or remove them. The reason is so that you are focused on what's ahead of you, not worried about what's behind you.

Yes, I was dragging way too much, especially in the two double apex turns.
