2010 Run to the Coast - 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am goes into corner too hot on road course
This was my 3rd hot lap on the Road Course. I was overdriving the car quite a bit as it was the last lap and because letting it slide to the last bit of runoff was a ton of fun. Here, I carried too much speed, especially going over the crown in the road that unsettles the car. A cone was killed.
2010 Run to the Coast - 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Autocross
Here my Trans Am runs the autocross at RTTC 2010. This felt like my
quickest run, but as luck would have it, there was some error with the
timing so the run did not count. Note that the car shifts out of first

2500 rpm that day, which greatly hindered acceleration.

Here's the run that actually counted as the timers didn't have any
