Mid-ohio Spec focus race Video
This is from a Matt Marks post and from his in car video from the Spec Foc race at the Mid-ohio Nationals. Thought some of you Spec Focus hopefuls might enjoy.


Finally uploaded my video of the 1st three laps of the Championship race. Shows from the green flag through lap 3 where there was a nice punt (er...pass) for P2. Others have commented on this elsewhere on this forum and on youtube regarding the incident, but here's the wide angle perspective of what happened. As I said in the youtube page, check the other videos and make your own judgements.

Otherwise, enjoy some cool Spec Focus video!

Black Car - Craig Capaldi
Yellow Car - Lowell Marx
Red Car - Jack Baruth

That was awesome...

Foci look like they have trouble in "Madness" though. Of course, they were dicing it pretty well.

Cool video! [thumb]

Wow, had no idea Jack was such a bad driver. Glad he was got demoted. If he wouldn't screw up caroussel and keyhole every lap he could have gotten a proper run on Lowell.

Thanks for posting!

What exactly does it take to do this? I've heard of this, but never knew the restrictions.

"he gets in my way......i put em in the wall!!!"----lol love that commercial

That red driver should have heeded way to the car in front going into that last corner in the vid. The car in front should have let him pass long before.....blame them both.

Wish I could turn my DD into a race breed lapping machine like one of those!!!

Money. Then maybe some more money.

Figure 8-12k for a fully prepped race car with all the safety gear. Then another 1-2k for your personal safey gear. Track fees are probably $500 weekend plus gas/tires/brake pads. You need a tow vehicle and trailer. And probably 8-12 weekends to get your competition license.
