Pics+vid From my first track day @PUTNAM-Park

Boy is this lotus fun out on the track.

It was my first track day with the car, and OMG this thing comes alive on a track. It was truly what these puppies were built for.

I cant for next time.




Setting up camp^^No kevin because he couldnt save me a spot next to him. :nonod: This place was packed. So i found a lotus friend.




:blush2: ^^^ GT3 with carbon wing









Nopt sure if i like the cobra with a hardtop.:frown2:





Fokin sweet^ Cayenne turbo GTS


This Mini was one of the only cars in our group i felt was faster than me. I didnt get to talk to this guy so i didnt figure out exactly what he had done. But it is a JCW package with racing rubber(i believe). I saw a strut bar and harnesses. This guy was a good driver. I was unable to shake him for about 3/4 of a lap so i let him pass on the straight.





Little story that goes with these last 2 pics.
An Older AUDI hatchback in the race series went off track before turn 5. He went dead straight off the track instead of making the turn. No brakes no steering. They dont know know what happened. He drove straight into the woods car flipped, they had to get chain saws to drag the car out.
No word yet on the guys condition or if hes even alive. I know two things.
They covered the car before bringing it back to the paddock and immediately parking it in the garage. Which tells me Blood was a possibility.
The other thing is the air care stayed on the ground for about 20 minutes. Which makes me think they were in no hurry to get him to the hospital. Maybe he wasnt in very critical condition. Or maybe he had already passed....










Full race prepped Mustang GT, not sure about its modifications. But i ate this guy alive out on the track.

I would be willing to bet the guy in the Audi either had a seizure or passed-out. No turning, no breaking...sounds like the driver was out cold.

guy in the audi is ok. report -> nasaforums.com • View topic - Status of Mark S.?

I saw you there. Cars looked great. Unfortunately, mine never got to a point where I could drive. :( Still was a success, though. The other 944 guys got me further along in 2 days than I could have in a month. You can see me and the car in the one pic:

I kept meaning to, but was consumed by my desire to get my car ready. If I'm lucky, maybe I'll see you at Grattan.

Not only does the car look awesome, it sounds phenominal. What exhaust set up you running? Arqray Single with Larini De Cat?
