Lotus Exige at Grandsport speedway pulling a 52.828 with a theoretical best of 52.198. Im pretty sure I can work into the 51 second laps with another day at the track. Probably not much more than that in the car on street tires (Toyo R888).
Grandsport Speedway CCW Porsche 997
Porsche 997 at Grandsport Speedway going counter clockwise. Doing lead-follow with an instructor in the S2000 leads to my best lap of the weekend.
Video reveals that I should not be downshifting at the end of the back straight. I should stay in 3rd, take the left hand sweeper at speed, and downshift for the horseshoe.
CamZilla on Track
Part I of the Road course debut of CamZilla at Grandsport Speedway outside Houston this past weekend.
I had to chop it into 2 "episodes" to get by YouTubes silly 10 minute / 100mb limits.
'11 ZR1 Corvette Running at Grandsport Speedway Houston
A few laps at the Grandsport Speedway Houston, clockwise horse shoe included. My first day out the track with my ZR1. Good track surface. I run 1:05.90 (not on video unfortunately) while with the gold group. (the video is the silvergroup which was only 2 cars including mine and really not much challenge). The vehicle is equipped with sunset orange Exhaust commander module on video running with the Exhaust open. Very happy with the functionality of it. Good product. Here is their site if you are interested: http://sunsetorangecreations.com/Exhaust_Commander_Car2U.php
No I am not associated with them.
Catching the Elise at Grandsport Speedway
Another track day at GSS with Lotus Owners of South Texas. Fastest lap on video (fastest of the day was 1:05.4) happens to show the difference between an Elise and supercharged Exige. For a comparison of 1Hz and 5Hz data check out the video from March at the same track using a BB for data. Trackmaster for Android yields a much better result.
Cobra vs Lotus Exige
Texas World Speedway 03/29/08 during the SVTOA Meet. Video taken from a Lotus Exige S.
The guy in the Orange 2003 Cobra is a friend of mine and this is both our first time at TWS. We had quite a good time following each other during this session.
YEE-HAW IT'S LeMONS TEXAS
A few laps of me driving during the 24 Hours of LeMons race, this was my first time wheel to wheel. Talk about fun.
Z32 Chasing an E92 M3 on Streets of Willow CCW
So, a 997 Porshe, an E92 M3, and turbo E46 M3 blaze by me on the main straight. I decide to try and catch up to them. 997 and E46 have way too much power. Luckily, I can play around with the E92. Caught him in the corners, and led for a decent while, until my brakes weren't being happy anymore, and he was catching my on the straights.
Towards the end I point him by, only to keep up with him till the end of the session haha. I need more power...
