    well when you make it back our way let us know ahead of time and you will pick up 3 volunteer pit crew gophers. We are all race fans, want to be race car drivers, and generally like hanging out at the track!

    My name is Robert and I'm a total noob when it comes to HPDE. I recently went to SOW CCW and had a blast. I cannot wait to get back out on the track. I have a Honda S2000 that I love. I hope to see you all out on the track!

    Hi everyone... I hate that it took a tragedy for me to find this forum, but at first glance looks to be pretty cool.

    My name is Stacy, and I organize DE and Time Trial events for the Triangle Z Club/Tarheel Sports Car Club in North Carolina. I also own and operate Asphalt Ventures lapping days (just started that this year.) I have very strong beliefs about on-track safety, and I will argue "til the cows come home" as they say here in the south.

    I hope to provide constructive comments on any thread I think I can contribute to.

    My current daily driver and track car is an '87 BMW 325 with an '89 i motor/drive train, Turner chip, Sport suspension, sport seats modified for 6-point harnesses, 4-point roll bar, and RA-1's. I also have experience in older and new Z cars and a variety of other cars I've had the pleasure of taking out for a few laps here and there.

    FWIW... my best time on VIR Full Course to date is a 2:25.8 during our time trial last week. Here's a video for your viewing pleasure: http://trianglezclub.smugmug.com/gal...070_HZXDh-A-LB

    Sweet! That's the first Hyundai I've seen at the track...although I suspect we'll be seeing a few of these soon:

    My name is steve and I am a trackaholic.

    I have been around racing since I was born. My dad did autocross and SCCA for a long time. Later when I was able to drive instead of just wrench, we moved on to the IMSA Firehawk series. I worked at Nissan Headquarters for 18 years until they moved to Nashville. Then I started my own shop.

    I have driven quite a lot of different cars on track. I have a Skyline GT-R that makes 530 WHP, my Time Attack 350Z and had a 300ZX that made 577 WHP. I build and maintain my own cars as I have for over 30 years.

    Currently I am a wrench twister and slow cockpit spacer. When I was young I was a bit faster, but now that I know too much, I slowed down. So I put the Stuntman in when I want my car to go really fast.

    If you want you wheels to point in the right direction, then hit me up.
    We point your tires in the right direction!

    Default New Guy to the forum

    Hello everyone, I am Thomas Barrett. I am glad to be part of the forum and the community.

    I own a C6 Corvette and my experience includes Autocross and Solo Racing and Track Days experience going back to 1991 at Hallet Motor Speedway in Tulsa in a Renault Spec Racer. that dates me a little huh?

    I live in San Bernardino and travel to all the area tracks when possible.

    I hope to meet many of you at events in the near future.

    See attached some pictures.

    Life is like a race, the best times win!

    Hi Tom:

    It is good to see you made it here. Welcome aboard.

    I can't believe you posted pictures of yourself without the big gold chains, a tattoo or two, and a bit of blow dust still showing under your nose.

    Us Corvette guys have a reputation to maintain dude!!!

    Welcome! I've been on the fence about calling you guys to build me a new exhaust I have one on the car that you guys built(for Von Hep) with a 2.25" core and was interested in a 2.5" core and maybe a Ti can. Glad to have you on the board now
