SCDA Lime Rock Park, 7 Nov 09, Corolla runs Blue Group, session 3 (Part 2)

SCDA at Lime Rock Park, last event of the season on a great fall afternoon. Jon is instructing again, fun factor is high. First day in the Intermediate 1 group: faster cars and drivers, busy pointing people by, working on my line. As always, I am in my 93 stock Corolla (1.6L, 3 spd auto). My favorite track. Nice and flowing, fast in my low-hp car. Had as much fun as the first time I went (see the Aug 10 videos). Notice how at 1:40, I am a bit early at the 2nd apex exiting Big Bend and get on the throttle a little too eagerly: FWD car, understeer, left front wheel hits the dirt. Tried to unwind the wheel quickly, but still had a bit of steering lock left from the corner exit - enough for the difference in surface grip to catapult the car to the right, immediately breaking traction. Took quick opposite lock as soon as all 4 wheels were on the asphalt to catch and recover the car. Impressive lesson on what even a bit of steering lock does if your wheels are on different-grip surfaces.

SCDA Lime Rock Park, August 10 2009, Novice Run #4 (Part 2)
Lime Rock Park, SCDA HPDE, 10 Aug 2009, last novice group run of the day. My car is a '93 base Corolla, stock engine, 1.6L, 3-speed automatic. No modifications except grippy street tires, a pirate flag decal, and a go-faster-stripe. My first track day, and an incredible blast. My instructor is Dave Gran, SCCA racer and Lime Rock track record holder. Check out his book at http://www.goaheadtakethewheel.com . Thanks Dave, you were awesome!!!

SCDA at Lime Rock Park, last event of the season on a great fall afternoon. Jon is instructing again, fun factor is high. Watch the introduction by my teddy bear copilot - I rescued the guy off the road a couple years ago and hired him. First day in the Intermediate 1 group: faster cars and drivers, busy pointing people by, working on my line. As always, I am in my 93 stock Corolla (1.6L, 3 spd auto). My favorite track. Nice and flowing, fast in my low-hp car. Had as much fun as the first time I went (see the Aug 10 videos).

Astrophysathingy's V8 laps at Mt Panorama
My gf Ivy gave me the most amazing birthday present - two hotlaps in a V8 racecar around Mt Panorama with FasTrack racing. Video credits go to Adrenaline Video. My driver was Kim "Assassin" Jane who races in the Aussie V8 Ute series. Since I am used to racecars, albeit slower ones, I asked him to not hold back in the beginning ("Two qualifying laps"). Notice my face - it was not scary at all, but very impressive; I was very tense, trying to be as attentive as possible with all senses, and make these 2 laps count, taking in every bit of the track, Kim's driving, and the way the car felt. It was fantastic & unforgettable. Thanks Ivy, Fastrack, Kim, and to Scott from Adrenaline. Hope to drive the track in a racecar myself one day!





slow at limerock with an overheating motor may 2010
in the back of the pack on a restart, with an overheating motor, so slow slow slow. the green miata has no alignment after someone hit him in a qualifying session, so it's a bit slow and off line.





Lime Rock - SCDA (11-07-09), Daytona Coupe on 7 Cylinders, part I - Advanced Group 2nd run
It's been a tough few events as the car hasn't been running well, but at Lime Rock (first time) there were serious issues out of the gate. After some serious massive misfiring during the 2nd session we pulled some plug to see what was going on and found a some cracks on the plug (something must have come loose) Called it an early day after that...

SCCA MARRS4 2014, Sunday SSM Race
Racing SSM is so very close and intense. The Sunday 18 lap race, fighting all race long with the #59 car, and enjoying a huge bump-draft along the front straight from another one. Finished 14 out of 36, similar to Saturday's 13 out of 35, and moved up 5 positions from start to checker in each race. RP Performance gave me a good car, and I am really happy about these results - this was my first race weekend in that class and with that car, and this class has tough racing and good, fast drivers who don't give you a single inch, yet take every inch you give them. Thanks all for racing with you. It was an incredible experience. And thanks everyone at Summit for the friendship and good times in the paddock. I miss you crazy bastards already.
