T1 SCCA race Watkins Glen July 2010
The first several laps of my first race with the Corvette (2007 C6 T1,
Phoenix prepared) at the SCCA National race in July 2010. John Heinricy was
on pole and broke the track record. I was way too cautious on the start
(this race was the first time I drove the car so I was still trying to get
used to it) and should have had my bumper right up on the yellow vette, and
it cost me a couple laps getting back around traffic. Hero HD camera.

Corvette ZO6 and Porsche GT3 at SCCA Comp School
This is my Honda S2000 playing with a a Corvette ZO6 and Porsche GT3 during
the SCCA double driver school. The three of us agreed to keep close and mix
things up as we worked through traffic.
2013 SCCA National Championship Runoffs at Road America
This is the 50th SCCA National Championship Runoffs H Production race as
seen from the #99 Toyota Yaris of Jason Isley. Started 5th, but it didn't
last long as things went bad in a hurry. In Turn 1 I received a hit in the
right rear corner from Chris Albin, who appeared to dip his right side
tires in the grass under braking, which knocked the alignment out of whack
- fortunately Road America is predominately right hand turns, and the car
still worked great in those, but the car picked up a big push in Turns 5, 6
and 8. At the same time two of the leaders, Tim Pitts and Jay Griffin, got
together just ahead of me. Luckily just as I recovered the car a gap opened
between the spinning cars, and I came out in 3rd place. However, a black
flag all reset the field to the previous order for the restart - back to
5th. About mid-point in the time shorten race things took a turn for the
worse, I had a run going down to Canada Corner and went for the outside at
Kettle Bottoms, Albin started to drift right, I went left and so did he. On
a prior lap I had passed him in the same place, on the left side, and I
guess he took notes and was not going to leave that door open again. The
hit killed the front of my car. With the front now flattened my top speed
was limited and the car began to overheat. Was happy to hold on for the 6th
and final trophy.

Group 5 - Saturday's Qualifying Race
April 30th - May 1st, 2011
- Saturday was a fun day as I qualified 10th for the Qualifying Race out of
32 cars. During the race, I managed to move from 10th up to 3rd until I
spun in turn 11 - two laps before the end of the race. Finished 5th
overall / 1st in class.
- Sunday wasn't as much fun for me as I started the day with a black flag
during the warmup for sound 105db. I fixed the sound between run sessions
with a test lap alone on the track and was allowed to take part of the
trophy race with a 103db. I also broke the camera lens, so there is no
video from Sunday.
The start of the trophy race was fantastic and I moved from 5th to 3rd
after a few laps. Unfortunately I got black flagged again for sound 105db
after 12 laps. At first I didn't know if the flag was for me as they didn't
show my number, so I took a few laps, I figured that it was me after the
Marshall almost jumped out onto the track :-). I am very unhappy and
suspicious about being black flagged so far into the race.
Laguna Seca is a really fantastic race track, but I am done fighting the
sound limit issues.
On a positive note, I had the second fastest racing lap of the weekend a
1:29.84 during the trophy race, while I was chasing down the leader who was
about a corner ahead of me with 5 laps to go.
