    Hello,

    My name is Ed and I am a full-blown track addict. I've attended several S. Cali tracks in my car and bike in the past couple years and I can't get enough. I'll seriously start convulsing if I stay away from the track too long...

    Name: Ed
    Home: LA, CA
    Car: '04 Honda S2000 (S/C'd) and '03 600RR (sold... )
    Experience: HPDEs at WSIR, SOW, HTM, California Speedway, and Buttonwillow. Willow Springs Balcony & El Toro Air Force Base for drifting.

    Bunch of track videos (both car & bike) at:

    Sold the RR? Bummer. I sold my F4i about a year and a half ago. Couldn't go long though... I bought an '08 CBR600RR three months ago. Love those canyons!

    Keep driving and keep riding!

    Hi all,

    My name is Tony Garcia. Username, TonyG, and I am a track addict.

    I'm in Santa Clarita CA and run Buttonwillow, Willow Springs, and California Speedway primarily.

    I currently run a red 944 turbo with a LS1 engine, but have run many other 944 turbos & 911's in the recent past.

    Here's the current car:

    Name: Robbie Montinola
    Home: Dublin, CA (originally from Laguna Niguel, CA)
    Car: 03 BMW M3, 06 Tacoma TRD, 80cc Shifter Kart, and some racecars..
    Experience: 8 years of professional open-wheel racing (Star Mazda, Formula BMW USA, Barber Dodge Pro Series, Skip Barber National Championship, Skip Barber Western Championship), 5 years as a driver coach (for Skip Barber and privately for teams, drivers, etc), and 10 years of HPDE/track days...
    Favorite track: Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca

    Cool forum! Hope to meet/work with some of you in the near future. In addition to racing and private coaching, I own a company called Silicon Valley Racing which hosts VIP track events that are geared towards High Performance Drivers Education (aka Driving School). A team of professional driver coaches work with drivers with sports cars, exotics and racecars to accelerate their driving skills. This is the best way to build a solid foundation and continue to improve in the car in a safe and controlled environment.

    I'm also involved in the Tuner industry as a marketing consultant. I formerly ran the marketing for DSport Magazine, TPR Magazine, Import Drag Racing Circuit, etc... I'm glad the industry is been more involved in road racing the past few years and hope to see it continue to grow!

    Look forward to participating on the board!

    Howdy all. I'm Andrew, and I've been a motorsports addict for a while now.

    Started out in karts, made the west coast Red Bull driver search runoffs in '04 and '05, and then decided to pursue the driving on more of a hobby-level, as opposed to the full-blown competition path I was on.

    I still have my most recent kart, an '06 Italkart Rapido with an NCK Stock Moto-spec CR125. Still good for a hell of a thrill (and a workout!).



    My daily driver/track rat/autocross car/everything machine is my '94 Miata, which has been my high-school/college project car. Bought the car bone-stock in July '06, and completed the turbo install just under a year later. Small turbo (Garrett GT2554R), Megasquirt standalone EMS, full 3" exhaust, racing seats/buckets/rollbar, fire suppression, Koni Race shocks with GC sleeves and sky-high spring rates, and 15x8 6ULs with 225/45 NT-01s. It is an absolute blast, my pride and joy, and the reason I get up in the morning. Last dyno was 219whp at 14psi peak, tapering to 11psi at redline. It's been retuned and retimed recently, and it's up to 15psi peak, 15psi to redline. Estimated at around 235whp. All on pump gas.









    Looking forward to the site.

    Welcome Andrew. I may have some questions in the future, as I intend to go the opposite direction as you, and see about turning a hobby into a competition path.

    I recognize the location of your first pic...

    Hi, just registered today. Somebody over on ClubRSX pointed me in this direction. My name is Jim Dozier and I have been tracking my daily driver RSX-S for about 2 years in HPDEs with Chinmotorsports, mostly at Sebring (13). I did one at Homestead and a couple at Barber Motorsports in Birmingham. I made the jump to R-compound tires about a year ago and now I'm addicted.
