Summit Pt July 16-18

had a good weekend out at Summit but boy was it hot, Was plagued with some small oil leaks thruout the weekend but it was nothing to worry about. Cool Suit saved the day, Had a great student who continually progressed throughout the weekend in a nice 997.

Car ran well, new steering rack made it controllable, who woulda thought, will have some video's up soon hopefully.

Just thought i would post up a little vid of my old VW that helped get me started at the racetrack when it was stock, this is no HD i know i know, but hey it was 400whp at about 9 lbs of boost on a turbo meant to run 26 (breaking it in at watkins.

Well got back from VIR ok, it was HOT I tell ya. Had a ton of issues getting the cool shirt down to me and basically it never showed up and luckily I got the last shirt available at the shop on track though it was not the shirt I wanted, it helped ALOT. I had to run the first day and a half with out it and it was not easy and definately gave me some headaches. I guess there were two people who had to see medical help for heat stroke (one was in the hospital overnight).

Race itself went well, ended up with two 3rd places in the sprint races. I had to catch a plane out of town sunday night and had to skip the enduro, though in practice i had my steering rack give up on me so it worked out anyways (was going to try to stay for at least some of the enduro). Steering had been giving me signs of weakness but when coming out of hogpen, suddenly about double the steering input was needed to keep it on the track and was shuffle steering through the esses (NOT NORMAL).
Ill have some video up when i get the chance to upload/edit it.

The event was very good besides the heat, it was well run and a fun time. I am sure the heat had a BIG part with the low attendance but what can ya do. Hopefully next year more show up out there as the track is just too much fun.
Congrats to Frank and Toby who had a great rookie race. was fun seeing you guys out on the track.
Still cant get over the brakes on the spec boxsters
