    BTW, I just googled the S2000. It's rear wheel drive. I'm so glad I'm not stupid anymore....

    I'd like to thank you for the warm welcome Richard. You must be one hell of a guy.
    First you suggest that I can't turn right and now I'm stupid because I don't know sh!t about....Hondas?
    Every Honda I ever saw was front wheel drive....so my point of reference is; all Hondas are FWD.
    These look like they may be RWD but WTF do I know about Hondas.....and that makes me stupid?

    I'll tell you something I DO know, people who find it necessary to insult others that they don't even know typically have some deep seated feelings of inadequacy.
    Whats driving you Richard? Daddy beat you? Wifey left you? Boss treat you like sh!t? Sexually frustrated? Can't get it up? Closet Homosexual?
    There is something going on in there that causes you to lash out like a hurt little boy and I have no idea what that is....nor do I deserve your wrath.
    I suggest you get that looked at before someone with a little less patience takes you aside and teaches you some manners the hard way.
    It's been known to happen and I'd hate to see anything happen to you now that we have become such good friends.

    Anyway, best of luck to you. Sorry you're having such a rough day and thanks for the warm welcome.

    It's a Pro-4 car:
    T-bird body/Mazda Rotary engine.
    Basically the same as a southwest tour car but lighter and smaller engines, but faster than their big brothers.

    Here is the car on a half mile track.
    We were the companion show to The big motor cars and I qualified fast time for my class and 2nd over all for the day with a few thousandths separating me from the fastest V8 car.
    On smaller tracks I was routinely first over all. A little taller gear and I would have been here too, but it is what it is. (was what it was?)

    A trophy dash is basically a 6 lap sprint for the 6 fastest cars in class.
    I squirted through traffic real quick then sandbagged for 6 laps with a repeat performance in the main.

    Another new member here. I'm currently working with the NASA Central Region as their Chief Instructor. I've been involved with track events since 2000, starting out with a '93 Mazda RX7. Started instructing in 2004 and currently running time trial in a Honda S2000 (above) when I'm not fulfilling my NASA duties.



    Photo of my old RX7, taking a student around the track. When I'm not at the track, I enjoy the open roads with a Jaguar F-Type S Coupe:



    I've been browsing this site for many years without becoming a member, but decided to join up recently (around the safety talks within HPDE). When I'm not at the track, I work in IT. When I'm not at the track, or at work, I'm in my home office with my sim rig:



    What can I say, I'm just a huge automotive fan whether real or virtual.

    Welcome! You should fit in here just fine. Assuming, of course, that you can turn right . . .
    Yeah, I keep hearing that. I don't think it's going to be a problem. Thanks.

    Hey there, Newby dude here.
    I'm Sal and I designed/built/raced stock cars for decades, decades ago.
    For the last 10 years I've been doing a lot of car shows and drag racing with my Mustang GT.
    This year I'm going to hit some track days and see how that grabs me, so naturally I'm here to educate myself. Forums are great for sharing ideas.
    The car is currently under the knife for the transformation but is almost ready for my first track day next month.
    So...here are the obligatory pix:

    That was my number 7 car there:

    Hey Markus! I have some friends in your neck of the woods. One is an ex-pat American, the other is his girl, an ex-pat Norwegian. Both drive MX-5s. Another is also an ex-pat Yank with an e34 BMW and a stroked GM motor in it. Glad to see the membership expanding!
