Wild Racing Action - 2013 June Sprints - Spec Racer Ford
Follow the Craftlogic Racing Spec Racer Ford piloted by Denny Stripling

13th to 1st, and some last lap chicanery (contact) costing me a shot at the
win. Never a dull moment at Road America with SRF's!

KBB Races a Mazda Miata - Part 1: Skip Barber Race School
A few months back Kelley Blue Book got the crazy idea to go spec racing in
a Miata. With a little guidance from some smart folks at Mazda our first
step in preparing for fender-to-fender racing was to send our driver, KBB's
Micah Muzio, to Skip Barber's 3-day Mazda MX-5 Race School. In this, the
first of a 3-part series, Micah learns the ins and outs of driving on a
race track and what it takes to win behind the wheel of Mazda's popular
Kelley Blue Book is your source for car reviews, road tests, new car
launches & auto show videos. Subscribe to catch all the latest Kelley Blue

How To Drive Your Tires To Go Fast - /SHAKEDOWN University
Leo Parente and ShakeDown talk about the starting-point skills, techniques,
and feelings you need to get maximum performance from your tires. And
surprising to some, the lesson of this ShakeDown University suggests the
same approach works for racing tires AND street tires.
/DRIVE's Josh Vietze jumps on a racing sim to prove over-steering / braking
is bad. Plus, we share more Pirelli F1 tire information.

Racing: 2011 Runoffs SRF in-car camera
UPDATE: Broken right rear shock was the handling culprit. D'oh.
See more info below ("show more") - 2011 SCCA Runoffs. Class: SCCA
Enterprises Spec Racer Ford (SRF)
Driver: Denny Stripling
Qualified 23rd, ran as high as 9th, finished 11th. Earned the Sunoco Hard
Charger award. Rear-facing camera in upper left hand corner.
Welcome to my Runoffs experience. I didn't qualify where I wanted due to
missing half of the week, having mechanical issues during my two qualifying
sessions, and subsequently over-driving my ill-handling car trying to make
up for lost time. Nevertheless, making up 14 spots during the race was
certainly exciting and enjoyable. Before the race I made a fuel pressure
adjustment that turned out to be ill-advised as I felt like I had less
straightaway speed than I had during qualifying the day before. I made
significant changes to try and loosen the car up and it worked... too much
in fact in the carousel which killed me on the longest straightaway.
Overall a very fun weekend and some pretty entertaining video as a result.
My brake pedal started to soften about a third of the way into the race so
I had to push my braking zones way back (like an entire marker in some
Laguna Seca Skip Barber Driving School
Instructor Tommy Fogarty shows students Gator and Factor the course in a
Mazda 3. The video starts with Factor driving and Tommy commenting. Then
Tommy takes the wheel to show how it's done. Notice that even with three of
us in the Mazda 3, Tommy catchs up to a student in a formula race car.
It was great fun!
