On a few laps, my instructor had me drive the "wet" line. That was a trip! Going past turn-in points and then crossing over the "dry" line to unusual parts of the track really made me think.

I enjoy performance driving in the rain too, after all I live in Seattle!
On the track it is the BEST teacher for being smooth and balanced. If you are not smooth or balanced you will spin resulting in slower times. When it rains here on track days I try to stress to my students to back off just a little and work on smoothness and balance. After a few rain sessions they find that they are a whole lot faster in the dry.
The only draw back is I have to put my top upů
