which track?

NewHampshire Motor Speedway.

Fred, it was great meeting you. Thanks for taking the pics and love your enthusiasm and passion.

Getting a ride along with Baer in the Atom must have been a blast. That's a nice track toy.

Hope to see you at future events.

BTW, brgelise gave me a ride along in his Evora S.

Wow! ???

I love my Elise, everything about it really, but the Evora was pretty amazing. John is an excellent driver that knows how to extract every bit out of the car and there's a lot to extract. I was impressed with how smooth the power delivery is. Nice torque all the way through the band. I believe he has Hawk DTC-70 pads on stock calipers and they shed speed quickly.
It's a very composed car that exceeded my expectations. I need to come up with a game plan for the wife, showing her why we need another car. Lol.

Thanks John and thanks again Fred...

Chris

Cool! You will never look at her the same again. Or view the road the same. Welcome to this brave new world.

Beware, you could probably still turn back. But at some point.....you discover you've spent more on mods and a trailer and a tow vehicle than you paid for her and don't drive her on the street any more.

It's happened to many of us.

I just did the same with my new '05 on the "roval" at California Motor Speedway...what a great time.

The handling is amazing...now I just need the cajones to get up past 125mph on the straight in that little plastic go-cart!

I was getting 120ish if I got the last corner right at thompson , it's fun to run with a 911 .. Got to love the fight these cars can give to the big dogs !
