Beach Dudes Racing in car

Did you catch the moment in the chicane where your driver spun to the inside, then continued on after cutting me off on the exit of turn 2? If not, I did.

Both times I spun, I pulled to the outlet and waited my turn before proceeding.

Otherwise nice shots and driving (aside from the passes under yellow)

I see the pass as well, it is what it is, nothing i can do at this point.

One of our drivers got busted for the very thing on Sunday.

We went from 2nd to 5th.

I feel your frustration I had someone do the same and much worse to me more than once in this race.

As a car owner you only get to see whats going on when your driving.

Why do you think I purchased a Go pro camera(I need to see what going on in the car).

Sorry if we ruffled your feathers, not what we want.

"Myself" I gave back positions after the pass when I saw the yellow light.

Many times I was behind a car and it was very hard to see the turn station down the track in front of the car I was passing.

The big spin

I had the head set on when the big spin occured.

After seeing the wall of smoke in the pits I looked up and our driver (Mike) went by at what looked like normal speed.

I asked him "WOW did you see that spin" and he only replied "yah that was fun".

I said do you mean you were the one that spun ........no reply.

I didnt learn until much later it was him.

Again sorry for any frusration that was caused by my team.

We had 5 drivers in the Portland race

Thanks for sharing the videos.

I did notice that one of your drivers was a little over aggressive late

Saturday but it happens. I think I was probably overdriving our car trying to make up lost laps after it got smacked late Sat evening, so I understand how it is.

It was fun racing against you guys, both last weekend in Portland and in Spokane this last summer. Enjoyed the good competition on Sunday.

Downforce is good.

When I was driving I was watching to see what affect the board had of the airflow in the rain.

We had rain-ex on the windshield and the airflow seemed normal.

We had lot's of fun this weekend, this was our third race and they all have been fun.

For the most part everyone wants to have fun and have some good racing. (Cool)

Sometimes you get Drivers that want to do what ever to win.

As a Mechanic I have always called this (the loose nut behind the wheel)

None of my video shows the three folks that contacted our car, so I can only go by what our drivers said.

Randy which is your car?

I love that car, fast, fun, and sounds great now too! I've always had a soft spot for 510s, and wagons are always that much cooler. Even if their rear suspension isn't as good as the sedans... Thanks for posting the vids. We will have in car footage next year as well, ran out of time this year in the new car.

Look forward to racing with you guys again next year!

EDIT: So far I haven't seen anyone with in car footage that has our 142 in it, did you guys catch any? I went through all the vids on youtube earlier today, haha.

Two POS yellow Camaro's one faster than the other.

In the rain, the fast one was still fast which is saying something for a land yacht that big. :rolleyes:

Hank the Scirocco kicked butt and close racing the best part of the event for me.

Very good job by your team

I enjoy racing the 510 wagon along with the comments from people that have owned them.

Many people have soft spots for 510's, me included.

Kyle what kind of car is the #142 I will keep my eyes out for it!

I'm uploading a few videos from my stint (#1 Team Pony Express Escort) right now. Your car (#96)is visible for half a lap after you passed me on the front straight (I had an oversteer moment coming out of 12...). Should be up in a few hours!

EDIT: here it is - you're at 6:50 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32_Lgmff11g

Team TSR and TSR2 both ran yellow Camaros at PIR. #71 and #72. #72 was fast, really fast in the rain, which was incredibly surprising.. but it also lost an alternator or something electrical, as the night wore on, the lights grew dimmer and dimmer until they had to pit and deal with it.

Sorry, it's a '71 Volvo 142, car #96 that was "dressed up" as a Viking Ship of sorts. Although, our wood was a little lighter colored than you'd normally see on a ship. :)

Thanks! That was when we had my street car's wheel on the RF after one of our driver's went a little wide out of 11 and bent one of the wheels on the curbing... Nothing a big hammer couldn't "fix" though! That pony of yours was surprisingly fast, and sounds good too! It appears to not like lift throttle and turning situations, haha. Good times.

Thanks Dude! Yeah, I was in the car from 12-130 and ~630-730 if I remember correctly. The car handled very well(as long as you slowed down enough, it didn't like being hot into the left turns) and was very easily balanced on the edge. We were quite surprised and lucky, without having any drive time prior to the race and running cut springs. It sure felt different in the dry, but I didn't get to drive it like that for long and I always wondered if the brakes I was smelling were coming from other cars or my own... Haha.

Can't wait for next year! Hopefully we don't need to do any more transmission swaps and the engine keeps "coolant" in it.

Thanks for the clarification on the Camaros. They must have painted the #71, at Rockingham it was black. I was a bit confused. That car got the fastest lap at The Rock with a V6 in it. It was flying.

Yeah Chris, same car, before it was black, it was green, or red, or yellow or....Not sure what has changed more on that car, the color, or the amount of engines! They did 2 at Infineon and 1 at the first PIR race! The 72 was driven by the "experianced" crew, and the 71 v8 car was driven by newbies. The V6 72 car definitly shows how advantage it is to get a better weight balance by using the smaller motor. :lol:
