Supercharged 3.7L Mustang at Road America
I took my 2011 Mustang to
Road America Race Track on June 29-30th 2013 in Elkhart Wisconsin. This was
the Annual North Woods Shelby Club Event. I was in attendance 2 of the 3
track days. This was my first time at Road America Race Track and I have to
say I came away amazed at how fun this track is.
This event had around 150-175 cars per day. This video is a compilation of
several runs over the two days. I had 3 cameras on the car so there are
plenty of interesting scenes. The first main clip has telemetry data from
Track Addict. I then had a go pro inside and one outside the car.
The video is a bit long but is full of action. Inside are not just Mustangs but a variety of cars.
Many of whom I was able to catch and pass. You can read more about this
track day and see more pictures at http://v6Mustangperformance.com/road-america-t
I look forward to running my Mustang at Road America at the NW SC
track day in 2014 to see how I can improve on my lap times.
SCCA NJMP Thunderbolt race T1 Corvette
SCCA Race at NJMP Thunderbolt. C5 Corvette in T1 class following very fast
SPO driver who seems to be leaking fuel out the back at times. Later in
session, SPO car overshoots turn 1 and I get by. Not captured (no rear
camera) is his spin entering the devil's tail a half lap later, and, a lap
after that he has a major issue with fuel loss all over the track at turn
1, and he is disabled for the remainder of the race. Fun running with him
up to that point.
512 Road Race 67 Mustang @ Thunderhill 10.16.2011 Shelby Club, GoPro Hero HD
Open Track day with the Nor-Cal Shelby Club at Thunderhill in WIllows
California in my 67 Fastback Mustang.
This is my first track day at Thunderhill with Michelin racing slicks. In
the past I've always used the Hoosier DOT slicks. I've noticed the Michelin
tires are almost "all or nothing" where the Hoosier tire is much more
forgiving of traffic situations where I need to back off for a turn or two
to pass someone safely. I might try a softer compound tire next time, and
/ or make some changes in the alignment of the car.
This video was filmed with a GoPro Hero HD camera.
Superior Chevrolet Corvette At Road America
In this video, the Superior Chevrolet C6 Corvette races in the SCCA
Run-Offs in the Touring 1 class at Road America on September 26, 2009. Get
ready for some high-speed wheel-to-wheel, bumper-to-bumper racing. Watch
as the Superior Chevrolet Corvette hits speeds of nearly 160 mph on the
straights at Road America! Don't forget to visit Superior Chevrolet's

Formula One at Road America
Here is an onboard video from the 2012 KIC at Road America. The car is a
1997 Jordan with with a Judd engine instead of the Peugeot that it used in
the actual Grand Prix. This was our first weekend with with the car and
were astounded with the performance. There were a few bugs as expected but
we got everything worked out. In front of me is my dad running a Benetton
F1 from the same year, with the same engine. Keep in mind this is not a
professional event, nor am I a professional driver. The only goal was to
have fun and keep the car in once piece. Enjoy!
