I got my pictures uploaded. Some need cropped, but I figured I would give you guys the option to pick and choose. I have 664, but I shrunk it down to 347 for the upload.

Thanks to all who took the wonderful pics!!

Man, I was so beat last night when I got home. I must say however, the absolute highlight of my entire weekend was when Larry allowed me the opportunity to drive the GT at speed during one of the red group sessions. As you can imagine, I jumped at the opportunity to drive such a wonderful car on track. While I of course did not push it really hard (primarily because I cannot afford to replace it if I wreck it!! :eek: ), this car just keeps begging you to push it. I was just amazed at the level of grip coming around the turn two sweeper. I just kept giving it gas and it just kept sticking like glue and was asking for more. What a machine!!! :bounce: :thumbsup: Thanks Larry for trusting me behind the wheel of your wonderful machine!! Any time you feel the need to have someone else drive it on track - just let me know!! ;) :rolleyes:

For those of you who don't know already, I also drove Carl's car during a session early on Saturday. I am very sad to say that the supercharger locked up during my session. I of course felt awful that it went kablooey when I was behind the wheel, but Carl (being the gentleman he is) assured me that it would have done the same thing if he had been driving it. Again, Larry Frank stepped up to save Carl's weekend by allowing him to drive both the Cobra R and the GT on track. Actually, during the red session when I was driving the GT, Carl was in front of us in Larry's R. Picture a GT chasing down a 2000R!

All in all, it was a great weekend! The weather was just absolutely outstanding!

Many thanks of course go out to all the coordinators. Jim and Jackie, with out your efforts, this thing could not be pulled off. Everyone else, especially the instructors - Thanks again for making this such a success!!

If anyone has any trackside video from the white run group, PLEASE post it!!! I love to hear the sounds from the outside just as much as from the inside!!

Thanks!

funny you mention that! There were a couple times I made it over the launch at high enough speed that I know BOTH front tires were off the ground as the steering wheel went completely without load....AND the motor reved to the moon till the rears caught traction...I am guessing I had all 4 in the air or darn close!!! THAT would have been a great picture!!!

And yes, I never lift going over the launch! :cool:

And yes, I never lift going over the launch! :cool:I'm not sure if I had 2 wheels or all 4 in the air during my little excursion but I do know I was just a passenger when I finally got traction. One thing I have learned about the launch is that turning in too early can be a costly mistake as the exit puts you right on the rumble strip where traction is non existant.

At least I now know that a stock Lancer is better at tarmac driving than rallying....

Ah...so there are the 2 folks who bumped.The guy in the Supra was adamant that the girl in the Vette hit him. I guess, technically, he was right. That's what you get for passing someone on the inside of a corner. What on earth was he thinking?

there was a LOT of that going on as you can see here the white Supra almost hit Stan in Turn 1. You should have heard me cursing the guy while taking pics..... :mad:

Jeesh, that photo of the Supra trying to stuff Stan in Turn 1 shows some agressive driving IMHO. A bit too agressive for a DE event from my past experience.

yea....after cursing at the Supra at the top of my lungs I realized that they had already gone past....:( The white and red Supra were really bookin it on the track. You can see in the pics from HPD that the red one bumped a Vette off track as well..... :nope:

I gave the red supra a point bye at the beginning of the pit straight. I SAY the white supra coming and did not give him the point bye because we where at the end of the pit straight going into turn one. I was concerned if he could get slow'd down in time, so I did give up the inside lane just because he was carrying so much speed going into turn one. Fortunately he did not pass me and all is well. They where vary fast to say the least, But,,,,,,, If we had been racing I would have protected the inside line and he would not of had a chance to make the pass. Mike you are right this is a DE event and not a race; I just hope more people get the point before some thing really bad happens. I for one was there to hang with my friends, learn to safely drive my car at speed and above all have fun. :cool:

Admiral
11-15-2006, 01:27 PM
Stan, sounds like you had the situation well in hand. Part of DE is situation avoidance as well as awareness, both seemed to be working properly in your vehicle. Nice job.

At DE events we rarely know the other drivers or their habits so keeping up with the situational workload is just as important as driving the proper line. Placing your vehicle out of harms way "just in case" might mess up a corner or a lap, but it's much better than the alternatives. :thumbsup:

The agressive behavior took place toward the end of the day Saturday. Certain drivers were cautioned about their driving that afternoon. Sunday morning Andy / David / Edmond did an excellent job of calming everyone down and making sure this was a safe event. I do not recall any problems Sunday. At any event you can have some folks who get overly excited shall we say and I thought the SCMC event staff did a good job of addressing the issues!!!!:thumbsup:

Rick,

I'm not throwing rocks at the event staff or participants. Things happen quickly out on track, one bad lap, one bad driver etc etc. Based upon all the positive feedback provided in this forum about the event it is readily apparent to me that everything was handled well and that the event staff were up to the task. :thumbsup:
