    • 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

                        Was searching around for a good track forum and found this place. Only tracked my car at SOW. Planning to head out to the bigger tracks by the end of this summer. Looking forward to see some of you guys in the future.

                          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.
