As you very well know, it's not drag racing, so there's like 7 people here. I am selling my s2000, but I very much plan on tracking the shit out of whatever I get after, so I don't have an answer of when I'll be at the track, but I'll be there. I was pretty sure I was going to turn my Prelude into a track car after the sale but I'm having second thoughts because it's slow as fuck and it's actually not a bad car to just keep as a daily. I will be back though, perhaps with an s2000 that isn't nice. One more.... beat to shit.

Your name suggests what you could be driving, but what are tracking?

Putnam 5/26 with indy ducati...always a shit show with them but whatever
Putnam 7/13 and 7/14 with sportbiketracktime, planning to get my race license here

Going to try and go to Barber and/or NCM in the fall, not sure of dates yet

This will be the first year since 2015 that I'm not going to road america :-( I still might buy some last minute tickets if they stay available...we'll see. It's just an expensive trip when you don't split anything

My only goal for the year is to not crash, and to go 1:14 at Putnam

My car is more or less ready to race the clock. :noes:

Still have a rev match module to install and mount my 10hz lap timer.

i'll probably go to road america with gridlife for the first time in a loooong time. i never feel like the brz is painfully powerless at autobahn, blackhawk, or gingerman - but i'm pretty sure imma feel it on that long ass RA straight, especially when going uphill

Yeah you’re definitely going to notice it, lol. And there’s more than one straight like that.

I’m not a very big fan of technical tracks, I like high speed tracks with sweeping turns. Thats why i love RA and Putnam.

I was quite bored running RA in my s2000, that track isn't much fun for cars with less than 400hp IMO.
