Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

After putting some more wing into the car, tire pressure adjust, couple other small tweaks, Collin picked up some time, 1:41:082 to Mike Lewis's 1:40:947. Collin will run his harder tire compound to Mike running softer compound. Collin feels very confident in this tire choice. Car ran well with no i...

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

Arrived at Sonoma at 10:30, the sound of race engines at full screaming song! The history here is not lost on me, I was boggled. I had to park a long way from where Collin had his garage, taking me to hiking and then the shuttle. The gang was prepping the car for next qualifying. You would not belie...

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

What a day! Up at 5 hit the road at 7. Impressions: Cruise control is good after 1,400 km. These boys know how to farm Said farming puts a lot of dust and particles in the air, could not believe how much in some places. Performance tires are crap for noise on some of the crazy road surfaces, of whic...

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

I am in Redding, California, it is 30C out right now! 12 hours to get here including half hour picnic, fuel stop and 2 leg stretches. As the great rolling river that is the I-5, I cannot believe what I encountered with traffic, beyond insane. Back ups that went for 20 miles, 4 lanes wide and stopped...

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

So, here we go for first race report. Collin did two days of practice, four sessions per day. It was a flip-flop between him and Mike Lewis for fast time. There we some minor issues that cropped up but nothing that was not easily dealt with by Andy who is down there now. Collin's time, with his RACE...

Re: OCTOBERFAST 2018

"Even though it was NOT one of my early starts, Byron still needed a quick nap!" I thought that picture did deserve some comment, good job James. Mike set the pace after Hope, in his 350Z, zipping along at 120 - 130 till I pulled off at Mt. Leman, at least for the most part there were no traffic hol...

Re: OCTOBERFAST 2018

That's it for now, another season done for me, I'm off to Sonoma next week, thanks to all that came out for our drives this past season, we had some good ones. I will be looking at my log book to see how we did this year compared to last. I have a long family association back to the 70's with the Se...

Re: OCTOBERFAST 2018

And final.... The Lake behind the cars is called Seton Lake, it both feeds a power station as it empties into the Fraser River, and, a few thousand feet above it, is another lake called Carpenter Lake. They tunneled through the mountain and feed another power station half way down Seton Lake, where ...
