    Default Coronado Speedfest

    Had a blast this weekend at Coronado in my Datsun 510. Sunday was crazy hot however.

    34 cars in my run group including BMW's, Alfa's, Porsche's, Datsun's, Triumph's and a few others.

    First session out I was going side by side into turn 3 with another car when I looked in my drivers side mirror and saw a 3rd car coming inside. At first I was a little concerned about going 3 wide through the turn but when I saw the name Boris Said on the roof of the inside car I figured things would be fine LOL He was there driving a BMW 2002.

    Pace wise my car is a mid-pack car, so I practiced my best Lynn St. James driving strategy and just made sure to stay out of trouble.

    Had wheel to wheel contact at about 100 mph with a 5'-1" wide 911 that tried to drive through a 5'-0" gap at 100 mph. I escaped with a slightly bent tie rod and a brown stain on my drivers suit.

    All in all a great weekend.

    Headed to Spring Mt Oct 9-11 with VARA for a Tribute to Mr K. (the 240Z designer) event. Rumors of an all Datsun race group, which would be fun.

    thepass and ETK like this.
