Let's post our favorite track pics here.

Mine is this time I was lucky enough to get a shot of me in front of a GT3. This took place at Carolinas Motorsports Park in Kershaw, SC.

Yes on the next straight he blew by me but this was my 15 seconds of fame! :lol:

The 1st owner of my 914, Maury Hamill, was quite the autocross driver BITD.

He's still going at it at 88 years old. Came in 2nd to a Corvette a few weeks ago. Class of 5 cars! Pretty sure nobody was close to him in age. ;)

Here he is BITD.

Where I live now is within 90 minutes of Sebring!

Never been there but if you happen to get back anytime soon before we move back to NC, let me know!

Hope to be there in February 2021 if all this covid shit goes away! Always the first race of the year and an awesome track.

If you are going to be moving you owe it to yourself to drive that track at least once. Make sure to have your filling checked before you go as the bumps will rattle them out of your skull!

It's odd that in nearly 20 years of SCCA racing (now retired from racing after an accident), I have very few photos. Just a handful of framed pics that are on the wall in my garage. Some of my FC and FF, and a few of the Showroom Stock GTI's, only two of the Spec Racer Ford, and only one of my first FP MG Midget. Quite a number of 1st and 2nd place trophies, but not many pics. Oh well.....
Here's a bigger pic of my Swift DB-1 in my avatar. Loved that little car. Most fun one can have in an automobile (provided you don't hit something solid going really fast).

Took a break in 2017 after moving the business and buying a house. Planning on getting back out next year once time allows it.

My first DE at Willow Springs in 2002. My E36 M3 is probably at the top of the "I regret selling" list.

Don't do what I was doing here. Drive with your visor down when on track in an air bag equipped car. If you do not want to drive with your visor down, remove it so the airbag does not hit bottom of visor, forcing your head back.

It has been way way way too long. The first one is of me on 3 wheels coming out of the hairpin @ Sebring in the 930 from January 2007? at the DE during the club race. I legit corded a set of R888's that day. Ah, to be young and full of piss and vinegar!
image.png
Second one is me heading into T3 @ Sebring in my 951 before I re-did the suspension and changed the brake bias.

Last is a super old video my Mom took using an old Sony digital camera. That was around the time I went solo with PCA, but before we bought the 951. Mom never came back to watch me again.



Thanks for all the photos and the memories guys!

Good to see that I didn't kill this thread. There was more than a month between my last post and the next one. Gave me plenty of time to find some more "track photos".

As much as I hate to admit it.........they are decent track (SUV) cars. They get around quite competently.

I admit I was a Cayenne hater for several years until the 958 came out and I test drove one.

They'll never replace the 911 but if you need an SUV and can't give up that feeling of a performance car - then there is no other choice!

My screen saver keeps reminding of how much fun I used to have. Then it reminds me of this thread. Hope you don't mind...

And no - that cone did not get hit.

A few more. Slightly more recent.

Sideways at 80 mph on ice is kind of exciting. This was an ice run (time trial) on Saginaw Bay. For some reason, I have pretty good skills on snow and ice. And, I love it...

Image

I don't mind taking flight, either.

Now for something completely different, a real track.

Cool! I went looking through my email for track photos and found a video filmed by an unknown rider on YouTube of me doing a track day session at Grattan - Paul Newman’s favorite track! This was before I moved from novice to intermediate where you don’t have to play follow the leader anymore.

I was the 2nd rider in line, 1st behind the instructor. Black bike white suit yellow helmet.

That Grattan video is old I was still a little crossed up back then. I did a Jason DiSalvo 3 day speed school at Road America and worked out my body position - head down, outside elbow resting on the tank.

I need to dig out some videos from my last track day at COTA - they’re FAST!

Life happened and I haven’t been to the track in 3 years - this thread is making me want to go back.
