Early Season Update

  • Fixed the suspension geometry with EP drop 40mm uprights
  • Added very custom Penske Suspension (thank you Blackwach Racing)
  • Setup, Setup, Setup changes

Been hitting the local track days between NASA races for seat time and chassis setup. The car is getting a lot of track time this year for sure. Still feeling a bit ham-fisted and still over-braking, but not nearly as bad.

Race 3 was this weekend. We did well! Saturday and Sunday are two different events with two different track configurations: 2.1mi and 2.5mi tracks respectively (Heartland Park).

The event was full and lot of national talent there.

Greg Vannucci showed up with his V6 Exige (conversion) Cup car. He's certainly one of the best NASA racers in the country with a national championship under his belt among others. He's running TT2 and ST1 (W2W). Jim Lipari was there in his TTB Elise and I rounded it out in TT1.

It was absolutely spectacular to have all 3 Lotuses there not only win their respective classes but set track records on each day

I managed to set fast lap of the entire event on both days.

For HPT vets, I did a 1:38.1 on the 2.5mi corse and a 1:22.3 on the 2.1mi course.

Here's a quick vid of the 2.1mi course and a pic of all 3 happy Lotus owners!
