ajmacdon Posted February 10, 2017 Report Share Posted February 10, 2017 A co-worker just got back from Road Atlanta and introduced me to the concept of renting a seat at a Chump race. I had no idea it was so common. sounds like a great way to scratch the competitive itch while I am without a racecar of my own. My driving history includes 7 years licensed and racing my SCCA ITA Honda CRX and 10 years as a performance engineer on the Corvette and Camaro programs at General Motors. Happy to discuss specific experience and results offline. I sold the CRX a few years after starting at GM because I couldn't justify the expense of owning a race car while getting track time for free at work. While I get a lot of time on track I sorely miss the competition of racing. I'm looking for a team with a fun car that's primarily out for a good time but wants to do as well as possible. Of course, I am happy to do whatever crew/maintenance/take out the trash work that is required. My parents have a cabin up near Brainerd so that would work great and, of course, I would love to hit NCM at Bowling Green. If you have open seats at either of those two events please let me know. I hate to be snob-ish but after the CRX I'm so done with FWD cars I can't even express it in words, RWD and some hint of reliability are my only requests. I have spent a TON of time and love VIR so although those dates don't work great for me I would probably try to move things around for a fun car. I can't share GM videos but as some establishment that any of what I said is true, here's a promo video I did with our Chief Engineer for the launch of the C7 a few years ago. A bit scripted but a cool video anyway. Thanks, Alex MacDonald 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
