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.

A tribute to the Pontiac Motor Division
http://MuscleCarFilms.com/ for some great Pontiac DVD's! Pontiac meant performance and style, from the 1950's all the way up to their unexpected cancellation announcement in 2009. I decided to make a second Pontiac retrospective, adding to the original 4 minute clip I previously posted. In this version, I've attempted to show a chronological timeline of sorts for Pontiac, including their WWII production, right up to an explanation as to what happened to Pontiac's mystique and credibility in the 2000's. The Pontiac nameplate will be discontinued, but Pontiac fans around the world will never forget. Pontiacs were cool. They were fun. They had style. Their designs were built on pure driving passion, excitement, and performance. We'll miss them...





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 gear; the transmission decided it no longer wanted to use 1st gear past 2500 rpm that day, which greatly hindered acceleration.
