Feb 11 2012 7hr Lemons race at TWS
This is the sickest air brake you have ever seen. It has 2 pneumatic rams that raise a piece of plywood to act as an air brake. It is operated by a valve on the Ebrake. 2 air compressors maintain pressure in the system....and since apparently its too much load to try to run on the RX-7s electrical system there is just a generator bolted to the back that runs on its own fuel constantly while the car is on track.
The car also features a smoker grill with the Exhaust passing vertically through it on the back bumper so that you have slow roasted grub by the end of the race!

Chasing #35 240Z in #996 Spec Piñata at LeMons TWS 02/12/2012
This is the 2nd Spec Piñata appearance for LeMons. First was at ECR in
TWS was a blast, and I was fortunate enough to find a couple of similarly
fast cars both stints I drove. This video is of me chasing down the #35
240Z...which was fun because they were quite a bit faster on the straights.

LeMons Car Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway (Sept. 24, 2011)
I attended the 24 Hours of LeMons race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway on
Sept. 24, 2011, and had a lot of fun. I recorded hours and hours of video,
but boiled it down into this 5.5-minute video. I was there to watch my
brother (Joe Kovacs), who raced in the #71 car (a 1985 Mazda RX7), so there
is a bit of a focus on that car. However, I think it does a decent job of
giving the general flavor of the race.
I shot this with a Canon Vixia HF-S30 camcorder and used a GoPro HD Hero
for the on-car shots. I edited it with Corel Video Studio Pro x4 and did
the whole project in the AVCHD format.

VALTONEN MOTORSPORT TimeAttack 2010.mpg
VALTONEN MOTORSPORT Mazda RX 7 at Time Attack in 2010. The development with
the car went from power to aerodynamics and suspension. There is still to
do, but beside other joys, the unlimited class victory at Botniaring with a
class trackrecord and success at Gatebil Mantorp showed us that the way is
right. Thank you for watching
Jaguar C-X75 Electric-Turbine Concept
The C-X75 hints at an exciting evolution of Jaguar's design language while
paying homage to some of its most admired cars of years gone by. Advanced
design features such as a ground-breaking propulsion system and active
aerodynamics allow for an elegantly simple fuselage section that remains
stable at very high speeds.
