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.
Classic Mini Coopers Vintage Racing at Hallett Motor Raceway
CVAR at Hallett Motor Raceway in reverse. Dennis Racine dricing the Red
Monte Mini, Don Racine driving the Yellow Bumblee Mini, and Robert Hoemke
driving the Purple People Eater. This was the Racine's first trip to this
track, and we had a terrific time! What a mini track. Great turns and great
Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course NASA TTA winning lap April 2012 (2011 Mustang GT 5.0)
First weekend of competition with the car in NASA's Time Trial Class A
(Best lap time wins but lots of cars on track at once).
This is Mid-Ohio's "Club Course" meaning it has the chicane after turn 1.
I have lots of room to improve myself (the driver) and take some time out
of the lap.
This weekend I was competing against a prepared Lotus Exige S240 and a
prepared Porsche Cayman S.
The car was prepared by Rehagen Racing and I would like to thank my sponsor
Ford Motor Company for allowing me the ability to go out and do this.
The second lap of this video was shaping up to be better than the first but
the corner worker in turn 12 didn't wave the caution flag for the Viper who
spun and was in the middle of the racing line. I just wanted to not hit him
in the driver door and ended up with an embarrassingly big tank slapper.
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

12:30 Thanks Oli !!
20:25 My spotter Kevin Harvey lets me know my lead is rapidly shrinking as

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.

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 @ Mid-Ohio best of racing video
We had a four person film crew at Mid-Ohio capturing the entire weekend on
video. We came away with some great footage, and even better stories. We
are in the process of putting it all together. This is just a sample of
some of the fantastic images that were captured.
