TRD Ferguson - ChumpCar - Road America - October 20, 2013
Here's TRD Ferguson's start of the race on Sunday. We were able to move through the field pretty well until our brakes started fading pretty badly. The stock brake system isn't really able to handle the speeds produced by our new engine. At least a brake upgrade will make a nice winter project :)

Road America LeMons, August 2012, Ryan Roberson, Skid Marks Racing
Day two, 1st stint. Lots of wheel-to-wheel racing with Launcha Splatos,
Dirty Rat Trap Racing, and Shitbox Racing.
11:55 first catch of Launcha Splatos (we race back and forth through the
1st 75 minutes of the stint, usually catching them exiting the carousel,
and then getting passed on the back straight!)
31:00 first run-in with Dirty Rat Trap (spent the next eight laps trying to
keep them behind me; fast car in a straight line, needed help in the
braking zones/corners; someone eventually figured it out as their quickest
lap killed SMR's)
43:10 into T1; contact with DRTR. Watch the carousel for the next 8-10
53:40 first wheel-to-wheel with Shitbox Racing; DRTR still around!
57:55 finally pass DRTR for good
59:59 around Shitbox Racing (good/clean driving by the way!)
L17 1:02:16 SMR's quickest lap of the race
L22 T1: Launcha Splatos around us again, and then us around them again in
L23 main straight, LS around us again and stay just ahead of us for the
rest of the stint (I think we pitted within a lap of each other...)
L25: 1:27:25 what about the blend line coming out of the pits!!!
L27: running on fumes and taking it easy (last lap)
Road America Track Day 2012 - Z06 Corvette In Car
Z06 Corvette in car video taken from a Road America track day. The track
was rented by the Northwoods Shelby Club and this was my first time driving
on the Road America track. The Z06 is completely stock with the original
Goodyear runflats (terrible tires) and has Hawk pads. Enjoy
BOC Racing E36 ChumpCar at Laguna Seca
The BOC Racing E36 at the 2013 ChumpCar Western Region Chumpionship in
Monterey. This is a brief segment from my Saturday afternoon stint. I chase
another white E36 for the first half then a Fox-body Mustang. The team finished 4th in the
Chumpion class (5th overall).
997.2 GT3RS / Caterham Funtime at The Ridge Motorsports Park (4-22-2013)
Porsche 911 (997.2) GT3RS & Caterham having fun and trading off on a
perfect day of lapping with Proformance at the Ridge Motorsports Park in
A good friend is driving the Caterham (borrowed for a session) and I play
it extra safe around these very driver exposed cars. He definitely owns me
in the turns and own him on the straight with the big power. Overall, a
good match-up and great fun.
The weather doesn't get any better than this and it's easy to see why the
Ridge (still fairly new) has become a favorite among PNW drivers.
I misspelled Caterham in the video title so, yes, I know it's misspelled :)
Too much effort required to fix & replace.
So, you want to drive a Chump Car?
This is a single lap from the PorchaMonkeyWrenchers' entry in the ChumpCar
World Series at Harris Hill Road on 11/19/2011.
Forced to run on a spare engine, the 1971 Porsche 914 began burning oil
entering turns. Subsequent efforts to fix the problem made it worse, and
the drivers decided to retire after about an hour's worth of track time.
Driver: Michael Hsu
Chump Car at Road America, Oct 20, 2013, Hollywood, Sunday Race Start, Front Facing
Green Flag drops at 7:44. The first 7+ minutes is a 2 wide formation lap.
Sunday start of the 2013 Chumpionship race at Road America. This was a
continuation of Saturdays Race. The race starts in heavy fog and damp
conditions. It's also damn cold and my hands are not happy. Should have
worn that second pair of gloves again like during the April RA race. It's
too bad the GoPro craps out, as Emitlaer, Mayhem and myself battle it out
the entire stint, turning pretty consistent 2:56-2:57 lap times with Mayhem
and I catching back up to the Realtime car and battling hard until they pit
for what I believe is a bad wheel bearing. Mayhem (Brent driving) also has
a couple epic slides through turn 1 that would have been spectacular in HD.
I have a few very close calls during the heat of battle. @11:20 #197 and I
almost trade paint. @25:35 and again @26:26 #421 gives me the chopper.
@33:00 we go three wide entering turn 5 and have a "moment". The local
yellow @ 13/14 (34:45) slows the pace a bit and spaces us out for a short
1988 Chevrolet Corvette Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
Hey guys I am not able to get out to make new videos because of our first
cardiovascular module exam and a couple quizzes this week so I will be
uploading from my stash many of you have seen on facebook. so they're all
with the other camera but still pretty good, I have a lot of cool stuff
I'll be uploading from there. Here's the link to the FB page
regards to this video, I love finding old corvettes and old vehicles in
general so whenever I get the chance I always try to haha.
In this video I give a full in depth tour of a 1988 Chevrolet Corvette. I
take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car
while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling
cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it,
start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
ChumpCar Road America Chaotic Restart, reaching for the podium.

3rd place guy to get into the podium. Lots of traffic to get through.
every lap we were gaining 4-8 seconds but ran out of time. another 3-4
laps and we would of had it.
