Ran at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway last week. Not my fastest times, but trying out a new nose-cam/tail-cam combo sync with data rendering (and ankle-bit a couple of GT3's):

Just got back from Buttonwillow 13CW with SpeedSF where I dropped 2 seconds off my personal best with a 1:56.56. There is likely more time to be had in cotton corners, the bus stop, riverside and over phil hill. Hopefully I'll have some aero bits installed by the next time I return to Buttonwillow.

Curborough sprint course UK

A 1 min clip of me sliding around Curborough in the UK

Probably the UK's nearest equivalent to an Autocross course?

Made the pilgrimage to Pahrump, NV to check out Spring Mountain with a group organized by Shinoo (thank you!) and had a really great time. We ran the Lauda B config which is highly technical, tiring, and very fun - it really doesn't feel like a ~2.6 mile track at all! I'm already looking into ways to get down there (a little more conveniently) for another trip. Also got to finally meet the legend @Jack

I should probably also thank my wife (the passenger) for joining me, too! It made the 9-hour tow much more bearable (mostly).

Good job Phil! You did especially well given this was your first time on that track....it is very technical. All you need to do now is put some better rubber on your rocket.....remember, life is too short for R-comps.

It was a pleasure meeting you and hope to see you out at Spring Mountain again ...soon.

Holy crap, nice lap! Great driving.

You seem to be carrying a lot of speed into those turns, what kind of tires are you on, or do you just have a lot more guts than most people?

Thanks!

RE71Rs, 205/50/15 on 15x8 up front, 245/40/17 on 17x9 out back. Lots of work on suspension setup and tinkering with settings... maybe an unhealthy amount of guts while out on track. I had a good pucker moment during one of my hop laps after I encountered ice-mode approaching the cyclone apex at the top of the hill.

Seems like there's still a fair amount of time (1/2 second?) to be found at T9, not carrying enough speed through the apex and tracking all the way out to the curbing on the right.

Inaugural SM Sports Car Racing Series -- a PB at 70+ years old

My fastest lap during Race 1 of the inaugural SM Sports Car Race Series-- it turned out to be the best lap for all sports car competing during the race weekend. Also, it was a PB for me in the Exige. I did turn a 2:24.99 in my 2-Eleven back in 2016 with a built BOE motor, which can be found in my video library.

Every time I look back on one of my videos, I see much room for improvement and this PB lap is no exception.

Car: Lotus Exige V6 CupR (stock)
Tires: Yoko Advan 005 slicks
Weight (w/driver): 2415 lbs.

Still working on my nose cam setup. Want it high enough so that it depicts the speed seen at the base of the windshield. New(er)/smaller/lighter camera with image stabilization helps with the not-so-rock-solid mounting using the front fastener location of the passenger side access panel. But lots of wind noise, so some alternative microphone setup is needed. This is Chuckwalla last month.

This isnt the cleanest lap i've ever turned but apparently I got the important parts right. Going back tomorrow with stickers during the official session to see if I can break the 1:15.7 record for the class

Smokin! Ha funny that a time about 5sec faster than me looks like 20sec faster. Would love to see telemetry on the screen too! Looks like fun for sure!

Edit: oh you have not run 1:15 yet.. well good luck let us know how it goes!

It is aggravating that we can't edit our own old posts...

New nosecam video at AutoClub Speedway (Fontana) roval. Sorry for the wobble on the front straight, but the car actually developed a front tire imbalance which only showed up above 100 mph (possibly rubber pickup). No substitute for HP/drag (Porsches are a lot better than Lotuses in this regard), but it makes late braking more exciting...

Yeah in this video I run 15.91 and on Sunday I ran 15.2, I think I could probably do a 14 if I had more laps. Still only have 100 there.
