FYI, my SG2 said my average speed for the event was 37 mph. But that's the overall trip, definitely not the average driving speed.

May include time spent sitting at the start, the mandatory 10 minute stop in Geneva, the bit of urban driving in Geneva and Watkins Glen at the end, plus the refueling.

Oh, and my brief stop in Ovid to yank my alternator wire.

EDIT: My calculated average driving speed was 45.4 mph (79.4 mi, 1 hour 45 minutes behind the wheel).
