i just got back from summit point racetrack, with NASA MA. i am feeling a little sick -- maybe a touch of heat sickness -- it was mid to high 90s, and sunny, with no clouds; dreadfully hot!
both days were good racing, but today (sunday)'s race was incredible; it is by far the toughest race i have ever been in. it was 40 mins of non-stop, knock down, drag-out action, with three of us in the melee mix. i was PRAYING for the white flag to fly! from the drop of the green, til the checker finally came out, there was not a second of rest or relaxation....
i think that scott's video footage will be impressive to watch! at times we were splitting lapped cars and were running three abreast (me, scott, and darren (integra driver)). darren was forced off the track at least once by a miata, and once he went on the grass intentionally on the front straight to pass a log-jammed miata pack (all i could see in the rear view was a monster cloud of dust!).
the track was disintegrating really badly, due to the extreme heat and the patches were melting and tearing up; off-line was treacherous, and i almost lost it a couple of times when i misjudged the 'marbly areas'....
holy cow, that was some racing! when i was packing up, several groups of folks came by to say that it was one of the most exciting races that they had ever seen, and that they were happy that they had stayed to watch, instead of leaving for home!
hyperfest is going to be awesome!!!!!
PS hey scott - my CV boot had spewed grease all over the inside of my front wheel!
