Chump Car at Road America, Oct 20, 2013, Hollywood, Sunday Race Start, Front Facing
Green Flag drops at 7:44. The first 7+ minutes is a 2 wide formation lap.
Sunday start of the 2013 Chumpionship race at Road America. This was a
continuation of Saturdays Race. The race starts in heavy fog and damp
conditions. It's also damn cold and my hands are not happy. Should have
worn that second pair of gloves again like during the April RA race. It's
too bad the GoPro craps out, as Emitlaer, Mayhem and myself battle it out
the entire stint, turning pretty consistent 2:56-2:57 lap times with Mayhem
and I catching back up to the Realtime car and battling hard until they pit
for what I believe is a bad wheel bearing. Mayhem (Brent driving) also has
a couple epic slides through turn 1 that would have been spectacular in HD.
I have a few very close calls during the heat of battle. @11:20 #197 and I
almost trade paint. @25:35 and again @26:26 #421 gives me the chopper.
@33:00 we go three wide entering turn 5 and have a "moment". The local
yellow @ 13/14 (34:45) slows the pace a bit and spaces us out for a short
TRD Ferguson - ChumpCar - Road America - October 20, 2013
Here's TRD Ferguson's start of the race on Sunday. We were able to move
through the field pretty well until our brakes started fading pretty badly.
The stock brake system isn't really able to handle the speeds produced by
our new engine. At least a brake upgrade will make a nice winter project
Sebring Nat 09
First race of the season in my new race car. First 3 laps of the SSC race
at Sebring National 2009.
04 Mazda 3.
Check out the car buried in the wall in 17 at the end of the 3rd lap. All I
saw was corner workers doing the "The Hustle" as I entered. I slowed down
and monitored the situation.
Oh yah, and I spun the car. Oops.
Warning, audio quality a little bad.
Sebring Turkey Trot Nov. '08
SCCA Spec Miata race on the 12hr. course at Sebring. Made a good start,
but threw it all away in turn 10 on two consecutive laps.
A quick lap dicing with a couple of cars that ends with me watching my
mirrors instead of the turn ahead... lol.
17th to 1st in 4 laps.mpg
Started 17th after missing dry qualifying on Saturday. Drove to 1st in only
4 laps on a wet Pacific Raceway. The Goodyear rain tires were amazing -
1.3g in Turn 3 in the wet. Note the warning lights on the right of the
dash. Battery didn't have enough charge for the whole race, and went dead
with 2 laps to go after we had lapped almost the entire fied!
