Track Daze Summit Point Shenandoah Circuit May 16-17 2009

Track Daze HPDE event on Summit Point's Shenandoah Circuit, May 16-17 2009. ( trackdaze.com ) Some highlights from my weekend with bloopers at the end. The car is a 1993 Mazda RX-7 Twin turbo, mostly stock with reliability modifications. It is still running on 17 year old OEM suspension with street tires. It runs at stock Boost levels on the original turbos and a stock motor. Brake hardware is original with Hawk DTC-60 race pads, which by the way, I am very impressed with. Despite its age, the car still holds its own against much newer hardware. The crash on the wet skidpad was caused by the ABS system which prevents the car from stopping quickly in a spin. The car sustained no damage and the ABS was subsequently disabled so more skidpad and track fun was had by all ;) Thanks to the Track Daze staff for putting on an excellent event and thanks for watching!

Big HPDE Crash at Pocono East Course Driving School on 5/5/06
Inexperienced driver in an Evo loses control when he takes two tires off the racing surface and overcorrects. Slams into a NSX and G35 that were on pit road waiting to go out in the next session. My brother and I were the first two cars that DID NOT get hit...missed his front bumper by about 18 inches. Track officials staged cars way to close to the track and should have kept us behind the wall until after session was completed. Fortunately, no one was hurt bad. More than $60k in damage to the three cars!
