Big off into the mud - Turn 7, Texas World Speedway CW
After a weekend of driving on a damp and slick track, things finally dried up. Unfortunately I got a tad overconfident and had an enlightening off-track experience. Car is a bone stock '97 Miata on Falken Azenes
Super slow driver at MSR Houston
This was the first session of my first weekend at MSR Houston, with NASA.
I'm driving a Mazda Miata. The driver in the Mustang at the front of the pack is a
first-timer, and proceeds to drive very slowly (you can see the speedometer
sometimes reading 25 - 30 mph!) through corners then drag race the
straights. The 5 or so cars in front of me end up passing him without
point-by, because he wasn't giving any!! I finally get by him, but quickly
realize that my brakes and tires are still cold, and I end up in the
marbles. Luckily MSR is a pretty forgiving track. :) Note the number of
cars you can see in the rearview about halfway through - this guy made a
lot of people mad!!
TWS 11 24 2013 CW Fast Lap 1:52
Drivers Edge event on 11-24-2013. Sunday was dry for the morning but got
rainy later. This was my second session. Car ran well with no problems. Had
flat tire on trailer just as I got to the track but was able to get it
repaired at Discount while waiting for gates to open on Friday. A lot of
fun and again thanks to the corner workers for staying out there in the
weather...I am sure it was cold and miserable.

This is during the "qualfying" rounds that some of us took part in during
the TX2K13 DE at Texas World Speedway. This was my fastest lap ever at TWS.
Alcon Super Kit brakes with Pagid RS29 pads (Alcon's support sucks btw)

There is no engine tune...yet...so stock power.
Data was captured using a rooted LG G2X with CM7 ROM with a QStarz 818XT
Video overlay is from a trial version of RaceRender...duh.
Video was captured from a GoPro Hero3 Black mounted in my windshield -
Sorry I mounted it last minute...
The oldest human ever on record was Jeanne Calment from France who was born
in February 21, 1875 and died August 4 1997, living for an astonishing 122
years, 164 days...
Texas World Speedway - The Oval
Texas World Speedway was a NASCAR oval track, but is no longer used for
that. Unfortunately there was an metal to metal accident during our
session. We got to drive on the oval to drive around the accident and get
back to the paddock.
The condition is not so hot. It is also unnerving to drive the bank at such
slow speeds. As you can hear I was properly nervous while heading around
Viper Racing League - 8/29/09 - Texas World Speedway
This is my first race with the Viper Racing League (Viper Days/NARRA) at
Texas World Speedway on Saturday 8/29/09. We have a rolling start with a
pace car and ran 12 laps for about 30 minutes. I edited this video from the
30 minute race down to 10 minutes so it would fit within the YouTube! time
limit. We also had a 26 lap inverted race on Sunday for about 50 minutes
but my camera messed up and I only got the first lap and it shut off.
Anyway, I came in 3rd place in both races behind the World Challenge
competition coupes which are much faster and have better drivers. I was
extremely happy to come in 3rd. In this race, I started out in the 3rd row
inside and managed to get behind Tom in his white/blue comp coupe. I chased
him most of the race just waiting for a mistake. He began losing his tires
and I managed to stick my nose in on turn 13. He was gracious and let me by
but could have easily kept me from passing. We were pretty even the whole
race and it was tons of fun. Thanks, Tom! The next race is Roebling Road in
Georgia and then off to Daytona on the Rolex Series course.
Jason Hart: 09/14 McLaren P1 TWS Delivery Texas World Speedway
A friend of mine decided to take delivery of his McLaren P1 at the track
and I must say I could not agree with him more. He ordered the car with the
5 point harnesses as he plans on using this P1 for what it was engineered
for, on track bliss!!! On the video is my first drive followed by 2 laps
done after the first lap. This car lives up to all the hype it now becomes
my favorite street car I have ever driven, previously it was the Porsche
Carrera GT...and I have driven many super cars over the years...Veyron included. I hope you enjoy
the video and there will be additional videos coming with all sorts of
camera angles. J
Jason Hart: McLaren P1 New Texas World Speedway Track Record 1:45.837
This is a New Track Record at TWS for an OEM street tire, street legal,
showroom stock vehicle. Joey Todd who handles the record keeping was on
hand and verified the event, Thanks Joey. I must admit the Trofeo R's do
very well, but the pressure the P1 puts on them makes for a tidy lap or you
risk putting too much heat in them resulting in loss of lap time. The P1
hit a sustained peak G of 1.79 in Turn 7!!! Most impressive for a 245 front
tire even with the uphill compression of the car. I am beyond impressed
with the aero, drive train and overall engineering of this car. The point
which gets the most respect ahead of all others is the owners desire to
track this car with commitment...it is a great opportunity to be chosen and
trusted with such resources and for that I am also Thankful beyond words. I
hope you enjoy the video if you watch it...J
