Here is some vid and some stills from the weekend at the track. My car was sick as you will hear but there is some footage of a LPE C5 TT duking it out with a C6 LPE Z06. Fast is fast.

The Mini was kicking ass.
It was a momentum course. The Lotus Exiges and S2000s were fast. A modded supercharged Supra tried to run with JP and SW. He caught fire as did a turbo Mitsi VR3000. A WRX went over hard and thankfully the driver walked away unhurt.



I was slow. My girlfriend saw it. I left her comments on the vid. I hear the engine low pitched sound in the video. I was way down on power with my ignition failing.

Great Chevy dealer in College station. Tom Light Chevrolet was top notch in fixing my car. Excellent mechanic sorted the problem and got me on the road incredibly quick.

Fun but I am looking forward to returning in June with a car trailer this time.

:cheers:

Sorry to hear about the problems, but it sure was exciting to watch the vid.

It is a hoot. I was sliding the car around turns at close to 100. In some turns you could set the wheel, dial in drift with the throttle and unwind the steering as you went WOT. It was especially exciting exiting the turn leading on to the bank. You were in a 100mph slide up the banking with the wall on your side.


It is a blast.

We ran the old IMSA clockwise track. It is fast and fun. Once you get up to speed it is all throttle steer. My car was sick and still reached 150+ on the straight. Heavy precise braking and turn in required to turn a good fast smooth lap.

You sweep up on the banking early and run down the straight
