SCCA NJMP Thunderbolt race T1 Corvette
SCCA Race at NJMP Thunderbolt. C5 Corvette in T1 class following very fast
SPO driver who seems to be leaking fuel out the back at times. Later in
session, SPO car overshoots turn 1 and I get by. Not captured (no rear
camera) is his spin entering the devil's tail a half lap later, and, a lap
after that he has a major issue with fuel loss all over the track at turn
1, and he is disabled for the remainder of the race. Fun running with him
up to that point.

Coverage of the SCCA Escort Trans-Am race run on 8/6/88 by Steve and Brock
on the good old American Sports Calavcade. Man I loved this show back then.
2013 SCCA National Championship Runoffs at Road America
This is the 50th SCCA National Championship Runoffs H Production race as
seen from the #99 Toyota Yaris of Jason Isley. Started 5th, but it didn't
last long as things went bad in a hurry. In Turn 1 I received a hit in the
right rear corner from Chris Albin, who appeared to dip his right side
tires in the grass under braking, which knocked the alignment out of whack
- fortunately Road America is predominately right hand turns, and the car
still worked great in those, but the car picked up a big push in Turns 5, 6
and 8. At the same time two of the leaders, Tim Pitts and Jay Griffin, got
together just ahead of me. Luckily just as I recovered the car a gap opened
between the spinning cars, and I came out in 3rd place. However, a black
flag all reset the field to the previous order for the restart - back to
5th. About mid-point in the time shorten race things took a turn for the
worse, I had a run going down to Canada Corner and went for the outside at
Kettle Bottoms, Albin started to drift right, I went left and so did he. On
a prior lap I had passed him in the same place, on the left side, and I
guess he took notes and was not going to leave that door open again. The
hit killed the front of my car. With the front now flattened my top speed
was limited and the car began to overheat. Was happy to hold on for the 6th
and final trophy.
11 minutes of Historic Trans-Am race car warmups
Walking amidst 20+ historic Trans-Am race cars warming their engines before
theTrans-Am race at the 2008 Monterey Historics. Some really beautiful cars
making glorious V8 noise. Sorry for the shaky camera - I was trying to film
the cars as they started up and revved while not bumping into anyone. These
cars made quite a stir so everyone was hanging out taking it all in.
Cameron Lawrence Racing Trans-Am Road Atlanta 2014
Cameron Lawrence driving the #1 Miller Racing Camaro in Trans-Am TA2 at Road
Atlanta 2014. Started 3rd and worked my way to the lead before being taken
out in Turn 10 which lead to a bent wheel and flat tire. After going a lap
down in the pits I worked my way past the leaders and back on the lead lap
to a 7th place finish. I was able to keep my points lead and set a track
record in the process. The car that hit me was penalized half of his points
for the avoidable contact.
