no problem, nice part of trailering a car, can make sure friends get home with the parts from your car. Extra belts will be in tool box for next weekend

Was a good day, very wide range of cars out at the event, a lot of new faces too, but day ran well. Great job by all involved in organizing and keeping the day running, Randy, Anita, Dan, Kristen, the Dave, all deserve a big thank you for the day.

Now where are the pictures of the day!

Only complaint really for the day was the lack of communication between timing and the drivers when it came to redos. My 5th and final run wasn't recorded, I was one of the last cars to go, and by the time I came to check my time the pylons were already being picked up. I know we were hurrying to finish so we could get lapping going, but I'm not sure why they'd say all runs are finished if cars are coming into the stop box and you're not writing a time down.

Yes a steller day thanks guys for another amazing event. Even though my Roll bars popped up and the cherck engine light came on during the last lapping session after a shunt off track it was worth it. On the up note the wife doesn't want me to use the nice car on the track so now I'm hunting for a track/winter car. Budget of $2000 just incase anyone knows of one for sale. Prefer a E30 or E36 but not picky.
Again thanks everyone.

Great event. Sorry Steve for the mix up on the last run. It's hard to keep track of everyone & everything. Here's a video I posted up of my 3rd run. Sorry for the shakes... still trying to sort out the best mount for the GoPro.

Yes a huge thanks to all that made the event happen,nice weather for a change too boot.

Look forward to seeing the results,bummed that it looks like I need to sell the new car(well I do have almost 7 minutes of driving time in it now) as my neck can't take it.Also SUPER bummed the only vid I got was the 1st run of the day-not too impressive I must say.

Fun while it lasted I suppose.

Here is my best run in my Civic. I was the white Civic hatchback, on 13" pizza cutter wheels! The video doesn't seem to pick up how close the car was to it's traction limits on EVERY corner.



I think that I am still in HS. Would I be able to run some 185/65/14's instead of the 13's without going up a class?

Nice driving. You'd be so much faster with proper track tires instead of eco tires.. lol

Is your Civic turbo'd? There's quite a loud whoosh when you lift off the throttle.
