Track Days at Watkins Glen with the boys from HRM

Just got home an hour ago from track days at Watkins Glen with the boys from Hunting Ridge Motors. Mark Starr has moved up to God like status in my book after letting me drive his beautiful S1 Exige on the track. He had to pull me out of the car as I did not want to get out That car is awesome!!!!

Thank you Mark I owe you big time.

Here's a pic of the Hunting Ridge gang. Thats me next to my Blue E30 M3. Mark is next to me with his Yellow Exige, and Dave is on the end next to his Silver Exige. We all had a blast. Now I really can't wait to get my Elise.

Driving Mark Starr's S1 Exige was the highlight of the day for me. I have never driven an Exige in my life and Marks Exige is the best around. Needless to say it is not stock and is more set up for track duty. I could not believe how well that car went around Watkins Glen. Just Awesome!!! I was smiles all day like a little boy.

Mark I own you big time

I have been doing track days for about 12 years now. I have never once seen one let alone two Exiges at any track event.

Thats Mark filling up his Yellow rocket.

Is that a SuperTrapp on Mark's Exige or is it something else?

Yes, Mark had to put it on, in order to run the Exige at Lime Rock which has a 94db max.
