Had a great weekend... haven't been there in over 7 years since doing to Panoz Racing School way back in summer 2003. Ended up running a best of 1:36.8 for the weekend.

 

3rd TT Session Sunday chasing Brent's LS1 RX-7

 

4th Session Sunday chasing Sperkins and showing how he cheats via shortcuts and smoke screens

 

Here's the 5th Session Sunday showing my poor attempt to keep up with Jason Ireland on waning tires... not sure if fresh tiers would have helped as he ran a 1:34 on the 2nd lap.

And this is Sunday, back to stock.. Ran a 1:39.0

 

Sorry for screwing you guys up there on the last lap in that video. I was wanting to take a cooldown lap and it's really hard to get out of the way through 4 and the esses. I should have given Jason a point by when I stayed wide in 4.

I couldnt figure out why Jason checked up, you were outside the line

Was that when Val was off track left? Totally jacked my head. Sorry for causing the clusterfk.

Heres my 1:29.6 TTS lap

 

 

Holy Chit, Wally! My azz cheeks put a crease in the leather of my lounger here in the den as I watched that!

 

I love the sound of that car!

 

Congratulations on a fine run, and also to you TTA guys for what y'all do in those undertired cars.

This was my first NASA event and first time at Road Atl and I really enjoyed it out there. I was driving the Silver C5 Z06 (#15) in DE 2 and I have some in car video of the last couple sessions. I also have video of the C6 Z06 bursting into flames from the last session but have not loaded it yet. Due to the ridiculous glare off my windshield you can't see the flames, however if anyone knows of a good video editing program maybe I can play w/ the color balance a bit.

T5=Bad place to miss a downshift:

 

What'd you do stuff it in 1st?

Yeah. Hope I got the clutch back in before anything important broke. It was still running when I stopped.

My student and I were right behind him. He's got some footage he's going to send me. It was pretty spectacular.

Nice were you guys in the mustang? I guess I was right behind you then.

 

I remember cresting the hill on the straight and seeing the rear of the car engulfed in flames.

I had an axle failure on Sunday during a TT session so I didn't make the Toy race

 

Here's a couple laps from the Lightning race on Sat though:

The problem with shooting & broadcasting video of yourself is showing the world you violated the rules on passing. Since you're in Group 2, you can ONLY pass with a point-by. At 2:19, coming out of T12, the white BMW did not give you a point-by but you blew right past him chasing the red ITA/GTS car.

 

There were a bunch of complaints in class about people in Grp 2 passing without points. I guess you were one of the offenders.

 

We will be watching for you next season & if you continue to violate the passing rules, the Black Flag will be out for you AND you will sit on grid while the rest of your Grp goes out on track.
