Summit Point Instructor School - Photos

I thought you guys might get a kick out of one of the cars I was instructing (and he me) this past weekend at Summit Point.

This is one of the new Spec Focus Rally Cars used in the NASA series.

Incredible ride!

So much so that I forgot why I was in the car! FIA approved cage, racetech seats, more electronic gizmos and stuff (the co-driver computer was like watching someone play XBOX).

Oh, did I mention it was FAST !!???

He ran street tires on the track, so the handling wasn't quite as good as I would have expected, it was BETTER. The car NEVER rolled, no lean, nothing. Rock solid ride.

He'll be back as an instructor on March 31 and has promised me that I can drive it.

Enjoy the pictures. I apologize for the poor resolution, but the phone was all I had.

It is more of a bright orange instead of pink. He won the Spec Focus class this year at Sandblast Rally!
I hope that he is coming to Rally Tennesse in May, it is all tarmac rally.

Yep! He will be in TN. His name is Barak (sp?). Really nice guy.

The color scheme is white with bright SAFETY ORANGE. Once again, I apologize for the photo quality, but all I had was my phone.

Based on our conversation, I would guess that he has about $30K in the car. Between the cage work, engine and suspension and navigational aids.
