    Default Been lurking for a while

    Howdy all,

    My name is Matt Steele. By day I make cartoons and by nights & weekends I like to go real fast and stuff.

    Been doing HPDEs and TTs for a couple of years now, and did years of karts before that. I'm also an avid sim racer (pCARS, rFactor, iRacing.) Got the bug from my granddad who used to race road cars and hydroplane boats in Georgia.

    Cool forum here. I'll be sure to join in the conversation more often than I do right now.

    My track car is a 2006 Porsche 911 C2, stock with Michelin PSS street tires.

    Here's some eye candy:

    Getting her ready...

    She's good to go:

    Beautiful morning at Buttonwillow:

    Going around Sunset:

    Had a good bit of rain, so now she's nice and dirty:

    This is how I stay fast between the bank account drains:

    Here's a clean lap at Buttonwillow:


    This was from my first-ever wet session:


    And my fastest BW lap where you can't actually see outside the car:

    New member here,

    Came across trackhq through google and found a lot of useful information. I have been lurking for the past few months. I just started getting into tracking my m3 a few months ago and I'm hooked- already done 6 events in 2.5 months. I'm trying to improve as a driver and hope to be able to learn a lot from being a part of this forum.

    Default New here...

    I'm a NASA DE3 driver with my '91 MR2, a stripped, caged, track only N/A motor car I've been 'improving' since '08. My track experience is mostly Road Atlanta, with many track weekends, and also Roebling Road, AMP, and CMP. This July I am going to Rockingham with NASA, my first roval. I usually flag or work at every Road Atlanta NASA -SE event I don't drive at, but have suffered some car problems and knee problems which have cut down my participation. Kinda wanted to see what else is out there.

    Hey Ed, I also live in Gainesville, GA! It's not too bad being halfway between road atlanta and atlanta motorsports park.

    Hello all,
    I drive a 2006 Lotus Elise and do some track time. Started in the late 80's driving an Alfa GTV6. Always looking for good information.

    Name: Serdar Gurhan
    Home: Cedar Grove, NJ
    Car: 2001 BMW e46 325ci, 1990 BMW 325i, 1984 BMW 318i Ford 302 swap
    Experience: Multiple autox events, HPDE events at NJMP
    Favorite tracks: VIR, COTA Even though I've never driven them

    First car was my e46, a hand me down from my father. It was the car that got me into tracking and Autox, i worked on it starting at 13 years old until I was 17 ( maintenance/ suspension/few power mods) and just drove it for a year and a half until this previous summer when I gutted it and depinned 25lbs of wire from the harness. Plan on welding a full cage this spring, putting in a metal plate lsd, and machining my own solid bushings (hobby machinist/welder). My e30 325i (first car I actually purchased) came from California as an automatic, when I was 16 I swapped it to manual with a LTW flywheel and HD clutch. Since then I have installed Ground Control Coilovers and ST Swaybars along with 225/45/15 tires. My most recent purchase was an e30 318i which I have 302 swapped and is going to be my daily also on coilovers, solid bushings, and a few other good things.

    Welcome, guys. A V8 E30 sounds like a great daily driver.

    Default Howdy!

    It looks like I'm late to the party, but it's great to find some like minded track enthusiasts. I heard about this forum on The Smoking Tire or The Slip Angle podcast, both are cool shows.

    I've been involved in motorsports for about 9 years now. My current situation is a PTEish '99 Miata TT car that started life as my STR autocross car. I hope to have this in race trim for early 2017. She's been under the knife, and I've been doing all the work, so it's been a slow build. I was able to do the NASA event at MSR Cresson earlier this year and a few autocrosses, just for shake down.

    I'm also part owner of an e36 crap can that gets a lot of track time. I've been driving in the 24 hours of lemons for about 5 years with the TARP racing team.

    Other than that, I love any chance to get behind the wheel. I started off in a 03 Civic Si in H-Stock trim. Restored a Formula V that never saw the track, because divorce. Did the SCCA drivers school at MAM in a spec miata and won the 3 hours enduro that weekend. Lots of indoor karts, some outdoor. I just recently drove the Property Devaluation 302 powered '79 RX-7 in the BFE GP at High Plains Raceway. I've also got a decent iRacing rig, but I'm having trouble finding time and settling into a series.

    Shout out to TARP Racing, 949 for selling me some sweet parts, and the Team Clear Coat podcast.

    Here are a few pics of the situation:

    It's a mk1 mr2 chassis with widened body panels from a '67 Simca taking turn one at Sebring. I had the pleasure of driving this through the town of Sebring after we lost a wheel on our trailer an hour north of the track.

    Favorite tracks: ButtonWillow

    Like most here to learn and meet other fellow enthusiasts. Always loved cars and anything that goes fast. Cars, Dirt Bikes and Street Bikes. Don't have much experience out on road tracks, only have 3 events under my belt at Buttonwillow. Each time craving away a second or two and getting a new PB each time. With my current time at 2:08:294.

    Hope to rack up some more seat in the coming months and, then work my way into to TT events.
