An Event Report
The bad side of this event was that there were only 17 or 18 cars registered, and of course the heat. The good side was that there were only two run groups, both having four 20 minute run sessions before lunch and four 20 minute sessions after lunch on Saturday. The course was a mile long with four section where I was able to get to third gear, so there was some speed involved. However, these sections also lead to the need for some aggressive braking heading into three chicanes and two 180 degree hairpins. The big thing I learned was that my car doesn't like to turn easily (needs a little more negative camber), and I was sliding quit a bit (ran 200 threadware street tires vs. Hoosiers or Kuhmo's).
I didn't run on Sunday, my back was soar, I don't know if was because of the car or the to soft a mattress at the motel, and the fact that I was exhausted after Saturday.
My Super ran great all day Saturday, except for the water temp gauge not working in the second session. the wire had come off of the sending unit. There where only two major problems that I was aware of, a Lotus 7 just about knock off his right rear fender when he contacted a large cone, and Jim Caver blew a head gasket in the first session on Sunday in his GTV.
I didn't get any pictures, mostly because there wasn't any free time, but mainly because I forgot my camera. So maybe someone else can post some pictures.
