Trying to shake down the handling of my newly-built American Sedan SCCA
roadrace Pontiac Trans Am, I headed up to Road America for a regional race.
Good friend/wrench Todd Candey is hastily taping on my numbers, as we have
come to the grid pretty late.
The only other AS car is qualified quite a ways back, so I try to take it
easy on the start and not ruin other classes that are around me.
Part 1 is uneventful, but part 2 shows what happens when your front brakes
fail at Canada Corner, one of the fastest places at the track!

Trans Am Depot's HURST TRANS AM at the 2012 SEMA Show
Very Rare. Very Well Done.
There are few names in the automotive world that are more respected, more
revered, more trusted than the legendary Hurst brand. There are few cars
that have prowled the streets with greater authority, more dominance and
commanding presence than the famous Trans Am. Not since 1997 have these two
iconic brands joined forces...until now.
2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 vs 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition! - Head 2 Head Ep. 52
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman travels to Barber
Motorsports Park for a head to head matchup with the brand new Chevy Camaro Z/28 and a well
known heavyweight, the Nissan GT-R. But not just any GT-R, the 2014 Track
Edition which packs a 545 hp twin-turbo
V-6, a 6-speed dual clutch transmission, sticky Dunlop tires and AWD
traction into a car without rear seats. The Z/28, by way of contrast,
features a massive 7.0-liter naturally-aspirated V-8, a 6-speed manual
transmission, and tail-out RWD. While it does still have rear seats, nearly
every other non-essential component has been removed. Moreover, the Z28's
tires might be even stickier! The front ones, enormous 305-sections, are
certainly the widest tires ever bolted to a production car. Both cars are
phenomenal, and both cars make rational men scream, "Gimme!" But only one
can come out on top. Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

Formula One at Road America
Here is an onboard video from the 2012 KIC at Road America. The car is a
1997 Jordan with with a Judd engine instead of the Peugeot that it used in
the actual Grand Prix. This was our first weekend with with the car and
were astounded with the performance. There were a few bugs as expected but
we got everything worked out. In front of me is my dad running a Benetton
F1 from the same year, with the same engine. Keep in mind this is not a
professional event, nor am I a professional driver. The only goal was to
have fun and keep the car in once piece. Enjoy!
