944-Spec Road Atlanta NASA 12/1/12
944-Spec racers in the Lightning group with NASA at Road Atlanta.
Jason Werner in the white 17 was on pole, then me, RJ Schramm in the black
7, followed by Mike Dearstyne in the red 26.
The race starts pretty well with Mike beside me in the esses and then
passing me in 5, me passing him in the back straight, then him passing me
again in 5 when I almost go off.
Then the red flag comes out and I get shuffled to the back. The red and
double yellow laps are edited out.
Finally catch RJ and sneak past him behind an E30 and spend the next couple
of laps fighting him off until another red flag ends the race.
944 Spec MIR NASA Mid South November 2012
NASA Mid South's first 944 Spec in its first race during our November
It's kind of boring, I get passed a lot.
I started building this car on August 11 with the plan of attending
competition school during this event. I got it 944 Spec legal, but ran out
of time so it has the stock suspension. It has a ton of body roll, no
camber to speak of, and the rest of the alignment is unknown. This winter
it gets camber plates, coil overs on the front, 350 pound front springs,
30mm torsion bars in the rear, bigger anti-roll bars front and back, and
new bushings throughout.
I forgot to put the camera in the car for the mock starts and the race warm
up. I put the camera in for qualifying, but forgot to turn it on. I
finally remembered and got a grid worker to turn it on for this race.
I attended comp school class Friday night, did mock starts Saturday
morning. We had a warmup, qualifying and two races on Saturday. Saturday
evening, I was presented with NASA Mid South's 2012 944 Spec Championship.
This racing stuff is easy...lol.
