What a blast it was to ride with Ivan (iburke) while pulling high g's around the Spring Mountain track. He absolutely caught on like a natural, cutting seconds off every lap in big chunks. Such an awe-inspiring experience to see him having so much fun beating that Vette for the most it could give.

Early on we were black flagged (for passing in a curve) and Ivan's innocent reaction was simply hilarious. When we went 40-yards sideways at 75mph through gravel at the apex of the notorious "Ego Check" turn, he giggled about it like a kid playing in a sandbox. I am fortunate to have been given the chance to ride along. What a blast!!!

You can see the results of the gravel incident in the bottom two pics!

When Dan was riding with me.
I am grinning from ear to ear in that first shot, what a blast! Listening to Ivan during those hard runs was just as fun as being pegged by G's.

Seriously, those types just don't understand.

They are going to miss out enjoying what they have by wasting time to uphold some preordained status mentality. So what if the cars have scars; now we have experiences that will stay with us for a lifetime. That's a small price to pay to do something few actually have done.
