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.

1979 Firebird - Into the 8's!!!
Dad's fastest and very last run to date. The impatient driver behind my dad did his burnout through the run, so you can't hear Dad's car at all. The "racer" driving the Mustang was at the 330' when Dad finished. (Ihave the time slip to prove it!) hahahaha





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.
