This is a great event that the Nor Cal Shelby Club puts on once a year, and I'm extremely happy to be a part of it. This video is in three parts due to the length of the "race".

#512 '67 Road Race Mustang | SAAC Mini-Nats 28 Vintage Race | Sears Point
My 1967 Fastback Mustang
during the Nor-Cal Shelby Club Vintage Race. So much fun!!!
Recorded with two GoPro Hero cameras (Hero2 in the car and older Hero
outside). The outside camera was stuck to the bodywork with the 3M sticky
pads that come standard with the GoPro cameras! Unfortunately the
outside camera ran out of disc space, so the last bit of the race reverts
back to the in car camera.
There are a few more still pictures of the car at the end of the video.
512 Road Race 67 Mustang @ Shelby Club Mini-Nats 08/08
My 67 Fastback Mustang
Again... This event was the first event with my new 3-link coil over rear
suspension that I designed. It worked extremely well and I expect it'll
get a tad better with a little more tuning. The front end now pushes real
bad - I'm assuming this is due to the spool in the rear end.
The spool worked quite well with the leaf spring suspension - but with the
rear tires in better contact with the ground the car wants to continue in a
straight line rather than turn in. The spool will be replaced before the
next event with a Half Tight DPI platinum LSD.
The miss shift between 6 and 7 was actually just an accidental shift into
neutral, so the 9k peak was just a free rev. The motor should be capable
of spinning near 10k with out trouble (not tested...) though it makes the
most power well before that.

My 1967 Mustang Fastback
dedicated Road Race car @ Mazda Raceway, Laguna Seca for the Corkscrew
Invitational Race - September 18/19 2010.
The car has gone through many changes since the last posted videos. The
front suspension has been completely redesigned to allow wider front tires
and improved suspension geometry. The engine is essentially the same,
though now uses a belt drive for the camshaft rather than a timing chain.
This event was great fun. It had been ~12 years since this car was driven
at Laguna Seca due to the strict sound restrictions at the track. This
event was held on one of the allowed open sound weekends and was a great
success. Thanks to Hooked On Driving, the Nor-Cal Shelby Club, and the
other clubs that made this event happen.
This particular footage is from the session before the race on Sunday.
Unfortunately the camera stopped after a lap or two of the race, so I don't
have complete footage. We did finish in first place, with a very fast
Panoz in a close second. It was a great race, I passed the Panoz cleanly
in turn 9, and worked hard to stay in front for the last three or so laps.
