Thanks!!!! While I had video running, I kept everyone behind me for almost the entire weekend so not much to see. Add in the fact that I missed a few days of work and am playing catch-up, I haven't even pulled the videos off the memory cards yet. (I would catch/pass 1 AI car and a couple SI cars....you see more of them than my competitors).

As expected at such a big event, there were a number of cars destroyed during the preliminary heat races. 2 AI cars will never run again and one more is questionable. CMC and Spec Iron also had casualties but those cars should be back on the track after a couple weekends of work.


It rained most of the day Friday and the Miata heat race was CRAZY! Something like 27 cars left the track from T1-T3 on a single lap......several videos from that race are on youtube already.

Did you post the video? Can you tell us about your car's set-up?

Didn't post any video because it's not very interesting. We do standing starts and I spun but quickly got back in front and lead the entire race with a large margin.

Congrats!!
My buddy took second in Spec Iron...

Not sure if this is the final video, but its one of them from the weekend.

Go full screen and crank up the volume!! Enjoy!!

That video is from the final championship race. I know because in was right behind him, Patrick roof, Audrey z, and ??? while they fought for position for most of the race. I even considered passing them but I was well out leading my class and didn't want to effect the spec iron race.
(VIR is my home track and although my car shouldn't be faster than them.......i am. One spot is the uphill esses. You can hear him lift and feather the throttle through there. I don't lift at all)

It was onboard with Carmine Pace.

FYI, this was his first time at that track!! Not bad for a Track Newbie!!

Fun race to watch!

I knew most of the SI guys had rarely, or never been to VIR since I'm there ALOT! (Spec Iron races with CMC)......and the uphill esses are hard to get right. It took me awhile before I could go up them flat out so it's no surprise they weren't able to do so. Hell, I even catch some of the AI guys at the top of the esses before they pull well away down the back stretch!!!!
