2009 SCCA Touring 2 National at Lime Rock - 350Z vs. EVO
Highlights of the Touring 2 SCCA National at Lime Rock - August 1, 2009. The Mitsubishi EVO starts on the pole with Brian Kleeman in the 350Z (camera car) on the outside. David Brand in a Supercharged Lotus Elise chases from behind.
Notice the motor in the 350Z starts dying by Lap 3.
The race is stopped and ends under a red-flag when Ken Payson's Spec Miata hits the spun-out Lotus head on. David Brand was treated and released that same day; as of Monday, Ken remains in the hospital. A full recovery is expected, but thoughts and prayers nonetheless.

WDC SCCA RACE (MARRS 4) 5 31 2009 @ Summit Point, WV
Highlights from a 20 lap race at Summit Point's main course. This is my second race as a rookie on my SCCA novice license. ( 2nd day of a 2 day event) I'm driving my recently transformed daily driver, the Focus is gutted, and has a top notch custom roll cage, but the suspension and brakes have very little develoment so far. Since the car is too new to have been homologated into a proper IT class by SCCA yet, and the original 2.0L engine was replaced with a 2.3L last year, I am running this car in ITE which puts me in a run group with some fast vehicles, and the only cars I can manage to keep pace with or pass are a few ITS cars. So I start at the back of the pack, but finish 21 out of 29 including 3 DNF's. Since one of the ITE cars, (the red Corvette off track to the left of turn 4) did not finish, I placed 3 of 4 in ITE, and had to report to impound. Not bad for a first weekend in my new toy.

My First Head-on Collision - SCCA PRO-7 Race at Cal Speedway
Be sure to watch "First Lap Head-on Collision" for this same clip with the actual incident played at full speed instead of half-speed slo-mo.
This is the start of the opening race of the 2007 SCCA PRO-7 regional class at California Speedway. After a great start I was coming off the oval through turns three and four when I was punted from behind (still trying to figure out who that was!) which spun me around 270 degrees. That set me up with a front row seat to watch race go by, when the next car to come around the corner had no where to go but drive straight into my car. OOUCH!
No drivers injured, but a few cars will need some work before the next race. Also,special thanks goes out to the all workers for a great response to the incident.
