1975 VW Rabbit at Laguna Seca
The rabbit's first road course event.
39th Annual "Duel at De Anza" (5/18/2008)
Car: 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata Tires: Bridgestone RE01R (205/45/16) Class: SM2 (finished 4th of 9) Split Time: 26.255s Time: 52.222s Venue: De Anza College (Cupertino, CA) I missed a 3rd place in-class finish by about 0.6 seconds and 2nd by only 0.8 seconds, either of which would have given me a trophy... Oh well, at least the only consolation is that I didn't do too badly for this competition considering I was not running on R-compound tires. :) I love the way this event was run, using the old-school auto-x format (1st lap is practice and the last two are timed). Also, the course was nice and tight, so it was challenging. I'm surprised that as wild as I was on course, I didn't hit anything.
450hp LS1 1978 Datsun 280Z
One of the coolest imports I've had the opportunity to see in action, this extremely streetable 1978 Datsun 280z takes it's first trip to the drag strip to do some testing. The car has an LS1 with heads, cam, and FAST intake manifold putting down around 450 wheel horsepower! Best 1/8 mile time was 7.11 for the night.
Datsun 1200's autocross at De Anza college
The white one has a rotary and the other has an A series engine I believe.
