Going racing this weekend!!!
 
Yup, That right, I am going racing at my local track on Sunday. I am so pumped because I have missed all the other events (2 other with the club I drive with) this summer due to work obligations. Thatís all I wanted to say.

My and one of the guys I “race” with have talked about doing an Auto-X event. But after seeing video people have posted of Auto-X, I don’t think it would even come close to being as fun as a road course.
I could be wrong...

I "race" at Waterford Hill Raceway in Michigan. http://www.waterfordhills.com/cms/news.php
The club I go with has just a basic tech inspection. Snell SA95 or newer helmet, good tires, brakes, no cracks in your class, pretty basic stuff.

I have some pics from last summer in my profile albums

Today was track day and I had a blast! Notiable kills at the track. BMW M5, Pontiac G8 GXP (over 400hp), Corvette C6 (only in the turns, he killed me on the straights) and the best, my buddies 99 Mustang GT with a few mods.

The highlight of my day was after one of the sessions where I was playing around with the C6 vette, a few of his friends who were not racing, came over to see how my car was so fast. And I quote, “what the hell you got done to that little blue car?” My response, “nothing at all, I am 100% stock and my tires are not even as good as the tires that came stock.”

I love my SVT!
