Last video from the SFR SCCA regional race weekend at Thunderhill. Started 9th and finished 8th. There was a good 4-car battle forming at the end of the race, but I ran out of laps before I could capitalize.
Incredible race in Valencia today. The best F1 race we've had in quite some time. It's unfortunate that mechanical attrition played a big role in the outcome, but the racing from mid-pack to the front was absolutely amazing.
One of the best racing videos I've seen in a long time. Reminds me of the movies "Grand Prix" and "Lemans".
You can hear the straight-cut gearboxes whining as the cars pull away. You can see the bits of rubber flying off the tires. Hear the splitters scrape at the bottom of the Corkscrew. Interesting views and closeups you will never see in a broadcast.
Highlights from the SCCA Group 5 race at Sonoma Raceway on July 7. Started and finished 4th in class, not a lot of position changes. The cars ahead of me in my class were all on Hoosier SM6 tires while I was getting by on my (slower) Toyo RA1's.
I battled with the #14 car for most of the race, but it was only for bragging rights since we run in different classes.
