  • Haha yeah I'm pretty sure I've got about the same experience.

    Those runs from Soggy Dry Lake to Means were always a blast, especially stopping by the two set of dunes (we called them little and big dunes). Soggy Dry Lake is our favorite, although its rough to stick around there on a windy day.

    After a 40-50 mile ride the whoops begin to get annoying, but the only way around them is to make your own trail (which can be fun, but is also dangerous) or to just shut up and learn how to ride them fast!

        Hi everybody, I'm Stephen from Aiea, Hawaii. My racer is a 2004 Mazda RX8. Unfortunately we don't have a track on Oahu anymore, so I do what I can. I run in STU with SCCA Solo II. I may also be getting into Skip Barber's Mazdaspeed series in the MX-5s. Heard about this place from Charles (MiataCharles_Hong_Kong), who I met just yesterday at a Skip Barber lapping session. Hopefully I will be moving up to SoCal in about a year or two and will be able to race more!

                            Welcome!

                            When people ask me the best way to get started in HPDE in SoCal, I always say the Buttonwillow Performance Driving Clinic. I'm sure you had a great experience on your first track day.

                            Do they still talk about the guy who totalled a 350Z in the Sunset Turn at the Clinic in 2004? (That was me . . . )

                            • Hey Carlo

                              Why the name change on this forum??

                              Richard, I've done the clinic twice, and your 350z incident was brought up at both

                              At least we can all learn from it!!

                              Comment


                              • What up Richard and Kevin! Yupp that 350z incident was brought up too last December. I am thinking of going back there again this year if some friends will come.

                                I figured my new screen name is more appropriate now than my socalevo screen name which was based on a firearm LOL. Used to be addicted to practical shooting but one hobby has to give so that goes and tracking stays LOL.
