SCMC MSR Event - Post pics in here - I'm start
 
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.

Hows this? Having 10mp is great. This is actually smaller than 100% crop:

Oh and Larry, I got a few of you that might come out better than the ones you had me take. The sun wasn't shining directly on the side of the cars in the morning:

You and a WHOLE LOT more out-of-staters besides Hazman.

Great pics guys, sorting through mine now and will have up posted in a bit. :thumbsup:

Here are just a few from my 500 pics:

SCMC/MSR-2006

SuperG 11-13-2006 08:37 AM

Great pics, guys!! Mike, post more!!!

Andy M 11-13-2006 10:20 AM

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!!

aggie97 11-13-2006 12:27 PM

Thanks for the great pics and thanks to all for having us down for the weekend! Great time even though I didn't drive on Sunday.
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!

97CasperCobra 11-13-2006 12:33 PM

I'll have some more pics this evening, unfortunately I wasn't there long enough(running errands for broken drivers :p ) and didn't have time to drive around to different locations like I did last year. :(

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:

jimmysidecarr 11-13-2006 11:15 PM

Wow!!!

Gives an excellent feel to how special this event really turned out!!!

Thanks for posting them!!!

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....

I know I got a few of you last year while shooting right by the launch with one tire off. :thumbsup:

Sweet Gary... You even got a shot of your tail lights in there to bring in sympathy for the taillight replacement fund. :rotf: I love that "you can't polish a ...." :D

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:

Admiral 11-15-2006 12:07 PM

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.

I'm glad Stan's car wasn't damaged!

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 02:27 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:
