Looks like fun. After traffic spread out it's clear the car goes and you know how to brake--and many of those others don't.. Pretty day to be out too.

What's the entry fee for that event?

Default race info

just to let you know lap 3 the O2 sensor blew out and the welded diff slowed me down when the rain got heavy . Ben from RSI was chasing me the hole time so i had to pass cars in some sketchy spots . my son flat spotted my new front tires on friday so i moved them to the back and i could really feel vibration pulling in 3rd. other then that it was a fun race.

Awesome video. Enjoyed it alot. Looks like an awesome track.

Bummer about the flat spots. I watched someone at autocross lock them up and flat spot the tires so bad you could hear it as he left the track.

It's like I was playin' a video game, drivin' a kick-ass 240 through the field of other competitors. Very cool dude!
