Jake has been filtering images to me so thought I'd post up and get things started. Everything looking great and a lot of awesome cars out there for this weekend! Also some NEW shooting locations as they have reconfigured some corners, fencing and run off areas which is awesome.


 


For those racing we truly appreciate the pre-orders and will have those to you quickly! Still available today and any time in the future! Details:

Solid pics as usual!   How many shots of the Z did you guys get?    I'm interested in buying a pack to commemorate Eliza's first ever time on track.


 


 


 


 


 


Any chance the Copper Penny team running the EC Spec Miata is on here?   I'm really, really hoping they had video from the end of the day on Saturday.   They were right behind me when the rear suspension decided to try a new alignment setting through 13.

That V8 BMW was awesome. I really enjoyed dicing with them and the Jagermeister E30 (I was in the black ABR E36). Fantastic battle, all very polite and gave each other plenty of racing room.


 


The growl of that thing behind me will haunt my dreams for a while... :(

I have lots of video from Sat. unforturantely only a few hours from Sunday.

:(

 

I bet we have ~45 minutes of the front wall of the garage, but you can probably hear me swearing under car getting gear oil dripped on me and burning my hands pulling out the diff.

Was it as hot as Gateway? I have never seen oil that hot before.

I had a nice little battle with the V8 BMW too while driving the Talon. Then one of those super fast E30s came up behind us. And then my ride died briefly coming out of the chicane. Thanks fast E30 for not violating my rear end.

when his gearing was right coming out of the turns, the thing was like a freight train and I just had to get out of his way. Seems like he was fighting the AT a lot though.

The Jagermeister car is a lot faster then when I drove against them last! Very quick.

You could hear it upshift right as the car hit the hill on the front straight, downshift as the hill got steeper and then upshift again as soon the car cleared the main part of the hill.  All within about 2 seconds.   Geez, it sounded good.

It's nice to hear that you noticed our JagerBomber is quicker.  In the last year we seen some solid car and driver development.  I think this past weekend every driver got their personal best in the car.  It also helps that we've worked through some growing pains with the car.  Barring the throttle cable breakage in turn 14 on the last lap of Sunday's race, we ran completely trouble free.   Can't say we did much of that in our first 2 or 3 years in Chump.  Thanks for everyone for making it a great weekend!

So guys..... where are all the videos at???????


 


 


New system in my car, which only took ~45 seconds of video each time the car left the pits, so I have nothing.   I would love to see some of the in-car action from the weekend!
