Ok, I'm horrible with names and all, who were you yesterday and did you have a car there? We NEED name tags or something at these events with our screen name!! LOL

Cool pics BTW!!

I was there Saturday with my brother. I did not bring a car though Mark wanted me to enter my 08 Cobalt SS that we drove there from Cincinnati. I didn't, I just wanted to get an idea of what one of these events entailed, to meet some of you guys and get some pics/footage. It was fun (though real hot) and I have around an hour of rally video and a bunch of pictures. If I know your car I can post it if I have it, it’s my pleasure.
Should I post any videos I have done into a separate thread? Did you see the video link to Karl’s new car above?

Yup,Karl's car is KILLER!! And the vids are good too!! I had the red turbo'd 69 Camaro, don't know if you got any thing on it tho since the tranny lost some gears on the road course after 3 laps and then I could only auto-x in first gear.

I think I did get some video of your car with the turbo's blasting out a wonderful song. Sorry about the trans. I wish there would have been better provision for video taping the road course. I heard the cars winding out going down the strait! It sounded good.

Hope you all had a good time, and didn't claim to much. I don't see how insurance continues to let them have these events on the airport surface with all the cracks and such. We didn't make it out there, just to hot and the pool felt to good. But we did run up to the cruise in, but by the time we got there there were about 5 8 cars left.

Had high hopes that I would be able to come out and participate, but the motor desided to lay down on me even before I got on the track. It was nice to hang out, put some names with faces and cars, but really disappointed to blow a motor. Thankful though, that we were able to make it back home under its own, limited power.

Here were a few of the pics I got.

Sweet! Thanks man! Looks to be chugging some Smoke there for some reason. The temps didn't stay down very well with only first gear. I could only make like 3 laps before it was WAAY too hot, like 230+ hot!! Then had to pull in and let it cool for awhile.

No man, we go 41 on the way home, by the time I reached evansville it was smoking pretty bad (alot of stoplights we had to go thru was hard on it). Oil pressure was 50 most of the way home, but it dropped to 25 by the time it was home. It died once, I didn't know if we would make it, but it restarted for me. Last night I noticed a nice puddle of oil underneath the car near the rear of the motor. Weighing my options on a new motor now. I had planned to put some money into brakes and new coilovers, but now that is going to have to go into a new motor. I have an LS2 shortblock that spun a rod bearing that I could have rebuilt, but depending on the money, it might make just as much sense to go stroker, from a power perspective for the future.

The surface we autocrossed on wasn't that bad , unless you got off-line into the grit and loose stuff .
The pictures do not show a clean shot of the concrete we were really on . It's old but the SCCA guys clean it .
The roadcourse part of this event was on the HUGE , real , honest to goodness , current airport runway , not the old WWII Airforce runway . It was clean and grippy .

Jeff, I don't know if this is true, but heard the city sent out a street sweeper to clean the track this year. Those guys really know how to set up a course for our type of cars, fast but technical, and I love them handing you a time slip at the end of the run. The concrete is real grippy, and makes your car feel like a slot car. The Lawrenceville course is my favorite autox that we run.

It was great getting to run with you again Jeff. Is there gonna be a peach state this year?

Bret, congrats on the autox win! The 48 Hr. Camaro was running strong.

The Mayor of Lawrencville told me that they had sent a street sweeper out there .
So I guess it was true ..

I'm not sure about the Peach State Event , I handed it over to Robert , Joe , and Sparky .

It is confirmed!!! There was a street sweeper!!! I saw it, lol.

The scca guys said they almost never have the same auto-x twice. They even go as far as bringing jack hammers and tear up the bad places and patch the area so they can keep it fresh.

As far as PSMC, I'm not sure it will happen this year. I was trying hard to get the event at AMP and since there wasn't enough people committing it may just have to wait till next year to be moved into the big event status.
