5B 1963-1967 over 2.5 Liter Production GT race. This car normally competes
as the #5 Historic Trans Am Falcon, but for this event, it was configured

most significant Ford at this event.
Ford GT40 Lapping at Sebring International Raceway (Onboard)
This is a 1966 GT40 model Mk.I doing some relatively low-speed test laps at
Sebring International Raceway's 12-hour long course. Filmed during a NASA
HPDE program, the car was in a mixed driver/vehicle group. Passing was
strictly limited to specific track locations and required a 'point by' from
the driver being passed. This car is Superformance chassis number
GT40P/2192 built in 2008,and is registered in the Safir GT40 and Shelby
Registries. This particular car was featured in the March 2009 edition of
Car & Driver magazine. GT40P/2192 was built by Pathfinder Motorsports,
which sells race-prepared continuation model GT40s for vintage racing and
for the street. For more info: www.GT40racing.com
2009 SCCA Touring 2 National at Lime Rock - 350Z vs. EVO
Highlights of the Touring 2 SCCA National at Lime Rock - August 1, 2009.
The Mitsubishi EVO starts on the pole with Brian Kleeman in the 350Z
(camera car) on the outside. David Brand in a Supercharged Lotus Elise
chases from behind.
Notice the motor in the 350Z starts dying by Lap 3.
The race is stopped and ends under a red-flag when Ken Payson's Spec Miata
hits the spun-out Lotus head on. David Brand was treated and released that
same day; as of Monday, Ken remains in the hospital. A full recovery is
expected, but thoughts and prayers nonetheless.
Laguna Seca Mini Cooper vs Porsches Vintage Race
This is the beginning of the race on Tuesday, July 7 before I broke what we
think was a drop gear (haven't pulled the motor yet). Had a good scrap with
a few Porsches before it all went bad. Great turn out for HMSA LSR for this
vintage race. Wish the car had held together. But better to have a problem
now, rather than the next race, which will be the 2011 Monterey Historics
(Monterey Motorsports Reunion as it's called now). We'll be fixed up and
running again before the race in August.
