    Hey guys, this is Daniel from Auto Eclectic.
    First of all, thank you guys so much for coming out! Everyone did incredibly well, and Emilio...you are a BEAST! I hope all of you had fun out there, we tried to keep everything leveled as best as we could given the circumstances, and it was a learning experience for all of us.
    It was a pleasure to meet all of you, and hopefully we get to hold another event in the near future and have all of you come down again.
    Thanks again guys!

    ...And dont worry, no spins or excuses in the story...the results were there, and realistically, how interesting of a story would it be if the "pro's" beat the "joes" ?
    You guys put on a really great event. Thanks!

                      • Team TrackHQ, thank you for a very eventful couple of days. Emilio, Charles and Jeff, you guys are beasts! Everyone on the team were very cheerful and carefree going into the event and willing to work together to achieve the results seen on Monday.

                        On a side note, I'm so happy right now! I beat all 5 pros while being the 4th fastest team member!!

                        Also, special thanks to Clint for letting me carpool with him to and from the event, William and Emilio for letting me sleep on the floor, people on the forum who voted for me enough to be a backup driver for Matt Andrews, and Auto Eclectic magazine for hosting this awesome challenge.

                        • Yes indeed it was fun meeting you guys. Except for one of the guy in the baby blue shirt wasnt very humble and was annoying as fk. He was very close to getting knock the fk out by me. Anyway the rest of you guys were a good group of people. My plan for this event was the fastest driver get to take my Yellow race Evo aka Bumblebee out for 5 laps, but that end up not happening due to some engine issues we had on Monday morning.

                          Emilio got a lot of respect from me at the end of the day, not because he's the fastest guy, but he's humble. Basically he lets his driving do the talking. So hats off to you Emilio


                          Im dead tire from the track, we were there testing our Race evo saturday, sunday and monday morning. I will do another thread full with pix and video.

                          See you guys around

                              • Congratulations to all of you! You guys rocked, deserved to win, and let your impressive lap times do the talking. Great job for beating the pros. I wish i was as fast as you all. Trying my best to improve my driving. Sounds like a party before, during, and after the event. Glory to TrackHQ!! Someone should make a shirt. Winners should get a special shirt for their valiant effort. Can't wait to see the in car footage with data and the article. Cheers!
