Randy Pobst VIR Instruction - April 2004
At my first ACNA Driver School I was lucky enough to get Randy Pobst to
take me for a couple of laps in my 99.5 A4 2.8.
I was in the "Green" group so it was filled with first or second time track
drivers. Needless to say we hit a little congestion since there were only
three places our group was allowed to pass each other. Despite the
congestion he still managed to give me some great instruction.
It was great hanging out with him that day.

NARRA - Virginia International Raceway - July 2012
Virginia might be for lovers, but July 6-8, 2012 it was for lovers of
high-performance sportscars as the North American Road Racing Association
took to the twists and turns of Virginia International Raceway.
As the temperature soared so did the on-track action, no more so than in
the US GT Championship where heated battles led to a fiery finish. While
rivals Vette and Viper, STi and Evo, battled it out in the Whelen USTTC.
We talk to racing couple Jim and Kathy Stout about racing and their Coastal
Pet Products business, hear from SRT celebrity drivers Tommy Kendall and
Shane Lewis, and find out why one of our own, Sonny Whelen, decided to hang
up the helmet to begin a race of a different kind.
Skip to 19:11 for some serious racing action!

moment in turm 9 at 6:37...took a little time to gather things back up.
The E91 328i wagon was driven well by its lady pilot--watch her eat my
lunch through and out of Oak Tree around 9:35. Great school--thanks
Tarheel, and great instructors--thanks Curt and Tom and Chuck.
