Wow, much lower! I noticed your helmet looks dark too? Hmm, did you have a secret hot shoe in the car? :lol: :

I think by far the best race of the whole weekend was with me and Chris.
The scene, sunday morning, 7:16am.
The place, Willow Springs, cafateria.
Chris and I lock eye and we simultaneously start sprinting for the counter, both of us throwing in an elbow or 3 trying to gain position. We both used the counter as brakes as we came to a sudden stop with a thud whilst both exclaiming, "COFFEE!"

The response from behind the counter, "Were closed".

Ahh, good times indeed!! :thumbup:
:lol:

Were those posted times handicapped?

I'd really like to see raw times as well.
Well, Shawn went out on the 2nd Session on Sunday without enough fuel in the car, does that count as a Handicap?? :lol:

Next time Shawn "WE" need to make sure you have enough fuel.

Hey Ted since there weren't that many of us, can you just post the times here or do we need to wait for the official NASA site? :)
I don't have all the offical time yet. So, I have to wait until they show up on My Laps.

I know the FocusSport car ran a 1:33.7... and I believe the H&R car ran like a 1:39 something???

I think the H&R Focus ran a 1.38, but don't recall and that is why I'd like to see the results. :lol:
Yeah that is what is in question in right now. I know the Spec Car and your car was very close in times.

Let me know if your going to run Troy, The next event is in October at Buttonwillow, we want to make sure we assign Shawn or myself as your instructor for the day or weekend.

October is good date to go, because both Shawn and I are going to racing the #32 car in a 3 hour night Enduro.

i had a blast as well guys. just watching and getting a feel for my first NASA event on Sat, then actually running the mazda on sunday. for some reason my best lap of the day was right when my atx overheated and decided it wanted to do all the shifting again....so i think i could have sqeezed another .4 out of turn nine if i could have shifted into 3rd (crazy 4speed).

spent a lot of time with the F2 guys, also nice meeting airforce who i was parked next to on Sunday. Really hoping to make Buttonwillow, and will be there with better tranny cooling and some rear camber as i saw was in great need when pulling off my tires.

thanks again to all! first time at the big track in my car, and not a single tire off!

Yeah we have some video coming. I believe we have an TTF car getting Chris Stout in a Four Wheel Drift once.

Should be fun to watch.
