Pirelli World Challenge 2013 Schedule | Taggart Autosport

Can't believe I missed that today :( We cancelled out at last minute due to a shot cv boot i discovered last weekend, just no time to fix. :(

Anyway, the fellow in the black shirt speaking in the window to Jim is Kirt Wideman, he put the cage in our Elise while he was repairing assorted crash damage a few years back. I believe Kirt is Jim's builder/crew chief or such.

He said it was the first time driving that car.

I was like a kid meeting a movie star!

I felt very inadequate! If you know what I mean. He did tell me my car looked nice but I had some serious shrinkage!

When that Evora rolled out it was like a stealth bomber coming on station to me!

Thanks guys

Good seeing you this weekend at RA. Yes, it was the first time out in this Evora GT4. It came over from England just last week. The performed extremely well and was a breeze to drive...paddle shifters help. We are considering getting the car classed for Pirelli World Challenge for 2014.

Just noticed my name is not displaying...sorry. This is Jim Taggart.

Way cool. Sure hate we missed this one.

Any hint as to the sort of times you were turning?

Sure would be great if they would let you in there, esp with that motor.

Did she arrive with the black and gold livery?

Yes, it came in the JPS Black and Gold Livery.....along with all of the UK/Europe sponsors on the car. Most of which I couldn't tell you what they do. I love the look, but not sure if it will remain like that or not. It depends on sponsors.

I wondered how you got all that put on so quickly. And how you had arranged some of those sponsors :/

No hint of times for RA? Mid 30s?
