      My first Motor-State Challenge

      This will be my first Motor-State Challenge and my first autocross. I would like to meet some of you guys. Who all is going and is there anything special that I shouldn't miss. I'm signed up for the cruise/cookout and the autocross but don't have enough time on the Trans Am yet to attempt the race track.

      My first Motor-State Challenge

      I've only got two speeds and very little self control so I'm going to start small and work up.

      We'll be there with our 66 Chevelle and 64 Chevelle wagon. That is if the 66 survives Road America, Des Moines GG's, Columbus GG's and the trip to Michigan. What could go wrong... I'm definitely with Justin, run Gingerman, you won't be sorry!

      I'll look for your cars and say hi. It's nice being able to go to these events and have people to talk to.

      My first Motor-State Challenge

      I'm just a little excited to go. I've been looking at Detroit speed videos all day to get ideas on where to mount my new gopro camera. The back fender looks pretty cool.

      My first Motor State as a participant too! I did get in a track session at the Heidts Performance Car Challenge before a mechanical failure. Drive within your limits and have fun!! (... and if you're running an automatic trans, keep an eye on its temperature! )

      Do the big track too .
      You don't have to run it that hard .
      Just go out and drive as fast as you are comfortable .
      Treat the track like you were driving as fast as you wanted to , on a country road , without the danger of hitting a deer , or getting a speeding ticket ...
      You don't have to push it to 10/10ths . Just drive fast .

      Yeah do the big track and tell us how it is. I'll be hoping to have my car done in time for Motorstate 2013. I'll be there this year once again as a spectator.

      My first Motor-State Challenge

      I'm just running autocross for this event. Maybe I'll step it up for the next event. I plan on making it to RTTH. Im sure that if you can't bring your car someone will let you ride along BuddyP.

      Do yourself a favor and run the road course. Just ask a more experienced driver to ride with you and show you the line. The track has plenty of run off and is super safe.

      I'm so bummed. Won't make it this year.

      I don't know whats on the schedule for Saturday night this year, but last year was "Blazing Saddles".

      The Motor State Challenge brings best group of people to hang out with.

      I also have to say "do the big track".
      Watch some Gingerman videos on youtube and find an experienced driver to ride along with you. Finding an experienced driver to ride along and give you pointers is easier than you think.
      Like I said, its a great group of people!
      Its one of my favorite events of the summer!

      I will ride along with you if you like. We can start slow and then start pushing the speeds up as you learn the breaking and turn in points.

      Just look for the crowd on Saturday night somewhere by the hotel as Little John should have some good entertainment lined up.
