The guy with the Lotus couldn't keep that thing on the track, maybe it was his first time? Great photos.

Thanks for the compliments guys....the camera is a Canon SLR Digital Rebel with a 70-300mm lens. Some say I have an eye for the camera so I've changed my minor to Photography.

I didn't get to run the Focus b/c while I was bleeding the brakes on Fri night I 1) broke off a front lug and 2) found out the inside of my pass. front tire was showing cords and bald so I decided not to run.

jaykirs, if you really want to come out check over HERE from time to time to see when/where we're going to do a little open-tracking.

I wish there was a similar race track club I could join here. Andy (owns the #155 R) invited me to ride along, but I wasn't in Houston that week.
