2011 NASA National Championship Race Class PTA, Mid Ohio
Highlights: 1:58 Jason loops it exiting the keyhole.
2:04 I get hit in the left rear and nearly T-bone Jason in the door.
3:55 Close call with the PTA C4 exiting the keyhole losing two positions
in the process.
4:10 Pass for 3rd position.
4:40 Pass Mark entering Thunder Valley for 2nd position.
5:20 Massive slide through T1 as rain started to fall on that part of the
8:45 The leader and I somehow manage not to touch through the carousel.
9:45 Pass for the lead in China Beach.
12:30 Thanks Oli !!
20:25 My spotter Kevin Harvey lets me know my lead is rapidly shrinking as
the track begins to dry. Gotta push harder!
23:20 Check mirrors. Holy crap they caught me in a hurry. Jason and Mark
battle for 2nd as I'm able to gap them using traffic.
26:30 Nearly lost it in T1 as rain begins to intensify.
27:05 Jason is coming like a bat out of hell with Mark in tow (I could
really use all 8 of those cylinders right about now).
28:10 Jason gets an unbelievable run through T1, passes 3 cars and latches
on to my rear bumper.
28:38 I'm a sitting duck as we drag race down the long back straight.
Somehow I manage to avoid the pass into China Beach. Gotta Go!!!
29:25 Use the Miata as a pick.
31:45 Jason closes the gap once again (with ease) and gets a huge run out
of turn 1. It's pouring in the Keyhole now and the outside line is the only
chance of finding any grip. Jason chooses the inside line and spins.
35:00 Checkered flag!!
SVRA 2011 Watkins Glen All Datsun race start
Video from my Datsun 2000 during the start of the Datsun feature race at
the Glenora Vintage Grand Prix Sept. 8-11, 2011. That's Tom Bork blasting
past in turn 2 in his historic VIN #8 Datsun 240Z. Also good racing with
Peter Bauer's beautiful blue/white/red Datsun 510. I couldn't catch Joe
Maloy in his fast red ex-Shafer 2.5 TA 510. The double yellow came out and
I was glad as my car was overheating and I needed to back off. Nice to see
so many wonderful Datsuns on track. Thanks to the owners and SVRA.
Kimes Mini Restoration Part 1
March 30th 2013, we start the restoration of our 1963 Austin Cooper S Race
Car, previously owned & raced by Bob Kimes,from the Dayton Ohio area. We
realize that watching somebody else work is boring, so we reduced/speeded
up 3 hours of work to about 5 minutes! thanks for watching Toybox Racing
Mosport Raceway in a Porsche 997 GT3 (1:39.5 lap time)
Got some great feedback from one of the instructors and tried to put it to
use to improve the margin of safety and understanding of the car on this
challenging course. I'm certainly not maximizing the potential of the car,
but it's a daunting track and one that commands respect.
