Update: Went to MSR-Cresson with Hornetball today!

It was really awesome! Reflecting back on it, it's the most fun I've had in a car, period. I always knew I would like it, but really, its something you must experience, Youtube doesn't do it justice.

Calling all fellow noobs!

You must do a ride along at a track! Ask someone with some experience. It's an enlightening experience. Just do it. You won't be sorry.

New goal: Get a track day/weekend in my car(probably through a noob driving school/event). I believe I will need a roll bar. So that's first on my list now.

Thanks again Hornetball!

Default Date Video for Vlad!

Member days are interesting. They group by category -- Sports Cars, Motorcycles, Open Wheel Formula Cars. The Sports Car category is wide open, and you get a huge mix of cars/experience levels, from pro/semi-pro drivers in fully prepped race cars to the new guy cruising the track in a brand new off-the-shelf car. Heads up! Be polite and enjoy yourself!

Session 3 Video:


Points of interest:
4:00-4:40: Passing a nice looking, new BRZ. Later in this session, this car came together with a fully-prepped Mustang racecar. Again, category is wide open. It's a bummer when the cars get hurt, but everyone was OK.

5:20: Nice looking M3. Another newish driver.

7:20: Miatas excel on Ricochet, although I'm taking it rather slow because rust (haven't been on track since March), new-to-me car, guest, and -- now that I've run out of excuses -- lack of gonads. We do make a lot of passes on the straight out of Ricochet.

7:59: This guy with the new, red M3 is kind of scary. He likes to brake in the apexes! Electronics on that car must be working overtime.

11:15: Being a nice guy and letting a Laguna Seca Mustang pass. He has gobs of power. My reward? Getting to go slow in the turns. Sigh.

12:51: C'mon squirrels . . . we can pass this M3 going uphill!

14:05: There goes rocket Bob in his C5R with a prototype in tow. Maybe I'll tag along . . . .

14:30: Disabled stock car on right!

14:39: Tag along worked -- passed the Laguna Seca.

15:00: OK . . . I guess those guys have more power than I do. But their front brake pads probably cost more than $50. LOL.

16:50: Deja Vu. Which means I get to slam on the brakes going into Rattlesnake again.

17:30: End of session. That was fun.

Session 4 Video:


Points of interest:
1:13: Stock car. C'ya!

3:40: Noob off on right.

4:10: PO put FM tophats on the front. The fender rubbing in the dip at Toilet Bowl is really upsetting the car. WHERE ARE MY XIDAS??

4:50: Polite Caddy driver lets me by.

8:38: This red BMW is slow in the turns but has a lot of power. He really surprised me by hitting his brakes hard going into an Apex.

9:31: Stock car and Keith Verges (Apex Driving Academy owner) in his "Bumblebee" turbo Miata. C'ya!

11:13: Finally! That red BMW is scary.

11:54: This Caddy had 3.5" pipes. Apparently, it also had the same apex auto-brake system the red BMW had. At least he let me by quickly.

17:00: Spec Miata. I should be pretty even with him but he was driving better. He also didn't have a passenger (my excuse).

18:05: End of session. Fun!
