Update...

Still fine tuning suspension, but can't really complain since we're winning and setting records

Expecting to get beat up pretty bad this weekend at Hallatt though. I'm still a greenhorn at this track and it has a blind corner that baffled me two years ago when I was there last, which left me "parked" waiting for the apex to show itself. Argh. 150 cars entered... hope it's not too embarrassing!

Figured it's better to look pretty if you're not going to win than not, so tidied up the exterior

Love the new graphics!

10 cars signed up for TT1.... wow!
7 = Corvette
1 = Viper
1 = GTR
1 = Very cool Lotus

Looks like all the "Goliath" cars have something to worry about. I had planned on being there in TT3 but have been too lazy to buy a trailer and get my act together. Good Luck Phil !!!

Thanks!

Ya, it's nuts!

I was there two years ago last and it was a big dual region event then too. Track record was set by an unrestricted C6R with a 1:18.9 as I recall (you TX boys and all your oil money showing up to am racing with a C6R. What's up with that! ))... I just never figured out the blind right/left combo at the top of the hill which cost me a lot of time so best I managed was a 1:21.0. The car is faster now and hopefully I can get enough seat time in to sort that hill out to find the needed 2+ seconds...

I'll let ya know

June 22 Update- Hallett Track Record

Just back from a two day race at Hallett.

Huge dual region turnout with over 150 cars on the race grid!

This was Texas and Central Region combined. The texas guys are brutally fast and come in vast numbers. My hat is off to Texas region for not only knowing how to run a well organized event with 150+ but also for some brutal quick cars

For those that don't know, Hallett is a memory track and one that takes PRACTICE. Unlike the other tracks in our region where looking ahead is all you need to do, Hallett is rough, full of blind corners, off camber, and LAAAAAAATE apexes. Looking ahead means nothing here. You just have to memorize exactly how to execute every turn, where the visual markers are, etc... Suffice to say, I had low expectations for myself going into this event. The track record was 2 years old and set in a C6R (yes, a factory C6R minus the restrictors) by a driver much more familiar than me with this blind cornered beast!

I qualified for p1 Saturday morning with a 1:22, but mainly because I lucked into a clean lap. Everyone else got jammed into traffic. I knew this time wasn't anywhere close to pace, as the record was 1:18.7. By the end of Saturday, I was in 4th place in my class and 5th or 6th fastest car of the entire event. The cool thing is that all 4 of us were in the 1:19s---- granted I was at 1:19.8, but still 1:19! So things were close but still more than a second off the record...

Saturday night was margaritas and time to reflect. Sunday morning was going to be the time to win this deal, set a record if possible, and get my free set of hoosiers

Sunday morning, I slapped on some A6 stickers and went after it from P4.

I left a massive gap before the green flag dropped and hit it--- still never using the same line twice and feeling like I was all thumbs with this complicated track. Somehow or another if I was able to string 10 corners together with enough ham-fisted brute force that I saw a 1:18.6 show up on my dash. At the conclusion of my session, I was forced directly to impound for scrutineering. Our regional director came over and went through the times while I waited..... Bam! We did it. New track record and fastest lap of the 150 car weekend. I was stoked.


Short of running over an original front fender liner from when I purchased my car new in 2005, the car never missed a beat.

That's my little weekend story.

-Phil

PS- A couple pics from the event...

Great result Phil .. I think you might be selling your driving skills and the car a bit short !!
I bet there were a few surprised locals when the little Elise clocked up that time ...
Congrats

Thanks guys! This was a tough fight for sure.

I forgot to mention that Greg Vannucci rocked TT2 and ST1 in his Lotus Exige as well. It wasn't quite the Lotus Sweep of the last race, but not far off

Better yet, at the Saturday morning driver's meeting, there was a lot of talk about "the lotuses from Central Region may be a problem"

Greg was hitting it hard right out the gates, but I was a late bloomer for sure.

Jeff- Awesome that you were following along online Glad I redeemed myself before the weekend was over

Cheers,

Phil

It would be cool to get a competitive Lotus in TT3....but then we do have Terry Fair in the Vorshlag Mustang. I saw he put down a 1:21:75! I mean, c'mon, it's a Mustang That car is set up very well and he can really drive it.

Congrats on everything Phil. It was nice to meet you @ Hallett. Sorry I couldn't spent more time chatting - I had lots of questions for you

As for the track - it's a hell of a lot of fun (and rewarding when done right) knowing that you can't just cheat your way around. Love Hallett.

likewise, Plack. I was busy as a bee. I did do a check out ride for Matt, so he'll be able to compete in TT going forward. That guy can wheel a car around those esses like a pro! With hoo-hoos in TTC, he will be a real contender!

You guys need to make it up to HPT in October for the last race of the year. Broaden your horizons!

Take care,

Phil
