Autobahn Country Club 9/12/2009

A couple of laps around the Autobahn Country Club at the TrackDaze event on September 12th, 2009. This was my first time here, and also the first time using a GoPro Hero wideangle camera. I mounted it to the front bumper to get a different view, and while the effect is kinda cool I think its hard to get a feel for the track layout. Anyway it was a great event and if I hadn't destroyed a rotor and developed a Boost leak I would have been back for more the next day :)

VSCDA Spring Brake 2014 Formula Vee Feature Race at GingerMan Raceway
The Vintage Formula Vee 15 Lap Feature Race at VSCDA's Spring Brake 2014 at GingerMan Raceway on Sunday May 4th, 2014. Started 8th on the grid thanks to a 1:55.229 lap in Saturday's sprint race. This was one of the longest races I've had in the Lynx to date and it was a blast. We had 32 cars on the grid which is pretty good for the first race weekend of the season. It was cold all weekend, there was a lot of cloud cover and the temperature rarely rose above 50. Two hours before this race it was 47 degrees with a "real feel" of 37 degrees F, the wind was howling. The sun did come out in time for the 12:50 PM race but it didn't heat the track up much at all, so I never really felt entirely confident with the grip level. Since it was the first weekend, I played it fairly safe in the first turn and continued that way through the first part of the race. By the fourth lap I was feeling more comfortable in the car but was surprised by Jerry Baker's blue #18 making a move at turn 1 (as I indicated by my hand gesture) while Frank Newton (red #63) were giving each other room to race. Behind the wheel it seemed pretty aggressive but watching the video it doesn't seem as "WTF!" as it did in the moment. The momentum lost backing out of that turn cost me three places and sort of set the tone for the rest of my race. Next time I won't leave that much room inside :) Besides I had a lot of fun chasing down Frank and Don Carone (silver #11) the next couple of laps, even if I did relinquish those re-taken positions just a few laps later (did I mention this was a really long race?). All of that setup the final battle with VSCDA newcomer Richard Styczynski in the #8. On lap 10 I still had thoughts of trying to get in a position to challenge Don and Frank when I bobbled turn 3 and Rich passed me. I actually got the spot back the next lap and built up a decent gap on Rich, but then on lap 14 I made a mistake and spun the car in turn 1. I tried to chase him down but Rich played it smart, didn't make any mistakes and I finished behind him in 9th. All in all a really great weekend despite the cold! Lots of great racing action, everything came home in one piece and I learned a lot (as usual!). Looking forward to Blackhawk Farms on Father's Day weekend!

VSCDA Spring Brake 2014 Formula Vee Sprint Race at GingerMan Raceway
The first race of the 2014 VSCDA Formula Vee season! And it shows in my driving, as I'm pretty cautious the first few laps. I had a loose throttle cable housing during the qualifying session and started the race 18th on the grid, but managed to work my way up to finish 8th. I had a really good time racing with Steve Lockwood #187 (the white 1968 Zink C4), I chased him for three laps before making the pass, and then the final three laps racing with Don Carone for 8th position. Good times!

VSCDA Blackhawk Formula Vee Feature Race 6/15/2014 (Complete)
The Formula Vee Feature Race at the VSCDA Blackhawk Vintage Classic XXII. In what's becoming an annual tradition, Bill Griffith of Bigger Hammer Racing and I had an action-packed race and we captured it all from both of our cars. Bill started 5th on the grid and finished 4th chasing Chuck Buysse; I started 9th and finished 5th, right behind Bill. Frankly I shouldn't have been anywhere near Bill - his car was clearly much faster than mine, as you can see on the straights, but as the racing gods would have it Bill's Warrior developed a strange brake issue that allowed me to stay competitive. I also owe thanks to Bill's crew who helped me with some fittings when I had to replace my fuel cell right before qualifying. Bill once again provided me the footage from his GoPro camera and this time I've tried something different, using a split-screen view to show all the action from three cameras. It's busy, possibly confusing - you'll either love it or hate it :) After the initial opening lap scramble (which Bill had a bit of a moment in turn 7), I get past Mike Rogers on the approach to 6a and start tracking down the leaders. A couple of laps later Bill puts the move on Chuck on the front straight with Frank Newton drafting behind him and passes them both in turn 1 (all of which has let me catch right up to them). Now the split screen view gets really interesting as for the rest of the race Chuck, Bill and I battle for 3rd, 4th and 5th place - with all three cars visible in at least one of the three camera views at all times. I held Bill at bay for several laps, but at the end he made a great run at me through turns 5 and 6 and blew by me before we ever got to 6a, and at that point I knew he had me. So ends another great weekend with the Bigger Hammer Racing cars from Texas, I hope they make the trek to South Beloit again next year!

VSCDA Blackhawk Formula Vee Feature Race Highlights 6/15/2014

VSCDA Blackhawk Formula Vee Sprint Race 6/14/2014
The Formula Vee Sprint Race at the VSCDA Blackhawk Vintage Classic XXII. Started from grid position 11 and finished 7th after running as high as 4th. The initial start was waved off so we had to do another pace lap (not shown on the video). At the last turn of the first hot lap Mitch Beiser missed his braking zone and smacked the rear of Frank Newton's car, spun in front of Mike Kitzmiller who hit Mitch's front tire and launched over the front end. Fortunately no one was injured and while Frank was able to finish the Sprint race, Mike's race was done and Mitch was out for the rest of the weekend. Mitch graciously provided me his GoPro footage which I've included so you can see what it was all like from his perspective. The end result of the fracas was I now found myself in 8th place and began chasing down Mike Rogers, one of the Big Hammer Racing boys from Texas. It took two laps but I was able to get a good draft and pass Mike as we approached turn 1. On that same lap I was able to pass John Kennelly at Turn 7 who then stuck to the rear of my car like I was towing him. You can look deep into his eyes in the rear-view camera :) I spend the next couple of laps trying to catch Jerry Baker and fend of John. On the 6th lap I get ambitious and decide to take Jerry at turn 7. I complete the pass but kill my speed coming out of the turn. If it had been the last lap, I would have finished 4th. Instead Jerry, John and Ricky del Rosario form a train on the inside line and proceeded to box me out the next three turns, dropping me to 7th position. Next time I make a pass like that I'll try moving over to the inside and protect the line through the turn at the end of the straight. Even with losing three spots on the last lap it was a really fun drive. My best lap time in the race was only a half-second off my all-time best, so I set a goal for Sunday's feature race to at least set a lap time as good as last year. I'd been taking 3D a little slower because I spun there last year and also felt I was giving up time in the final corner (even when I wasn't passing on the inside). I'll have the Sunday Feature race video up soon and you can see how I did!
