Knocking the rust off

Knocking the rust off

It’s been 241 days since my last track day, and two weekends ago I was finally able to get out onto the track again. Sure, in California, track days have been going on for some time now, but in the Las Vegas area we haven’t been so lucky. Covid has put a halt to a lot of extracurricular activities in Vegas, which is why when I found out about this event I knew I had to sign up. This event…

3 Dudes 1 Track (Audi Club adventures @SMMR)

3 Dudes 1 Track (Audi Club adventures @SMMR)

Last Friday we all attended our first Audi club event. We were intrigued by this event not only because it was going to be the Andretti 4 mile config, but it was also going to be run as an open test day. This meant that there would be no groups and the only time the track was going to be cold would be for the 1 hour lunch (which was included for us with our registration fee). As events gets…

PCA Track Days AT SMMR

PCA Track Days AT SMMR

Last weekend we closed out our 2019 season at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch by doing the final PCA (Porsche Club of America) HPDE event of the year.

SPEED VENTURES LVMS RECAP

SPEED VENTURES LVMS RECAP

This event was randomly added to the Speed ventures schedule only weeks prior to the event. You weren’t even able to register for the event from their home page, you had to register via a link they emailed out. (I know this because I deleted the email and couldn’t register, I had to have Patrick email me the link) It seems the event was added last minute as an addition to the other activities taking place around the LVMS facility…

The STREETS OF WILLOW Adventure

The STREETS OF WILLOW Adventure

Over the past 6 months you have watched me build this car into the daily driving, track capable, budget car that you see here today. The point of this build was to have an all around car that I could thrash on with out fear of financial consequences if I were to wreck it. This once daily driver, slowly turned track car was built from spare parts I had lying around as “cheaply” as possible, and as “stock” as possible…

THE NFR (New Formula Red) CURSE

THE NFR (New Formula Red) CURSE

If you’re somewhat into Honda’s then you will know about, or have at least heard of the “Y-49 Curse.” Y-49 is the color code for the yellow CRX, which has been dubbed by many as a cursed color. If you google “Y-49 curse” you will come across countless stories about how people that own yellow CRX’s with the color code Y-49 always have bad things mysteriously happening to their cars. There is even a whole community of owners that are…
