I participated in the Blackhawk Farms school weekend. :) Man, what a rush! My first time ever driving a race car, but with the great training from my driver's instructor...and the great students who kept their cool and ran safely while still being quick...very cool!
CivicSista, I was driving the Green Neon (AKA "Snot Rocket") and was pretty impressed with your lines. I even mentioned it to my instructor when he came up after a few sessions. I spent most of the first day following you around and watching what you were doing because you were very smooth. Then I realized I had a very good braking car after I figured out how to properly downshift and brake...heh. When I figured out I could be as quick as the Miatas I started pushing harder and my adrenaline rush was pegged after the second day.
Wish I could have stayed for the Sunday Regional race but my wife's car broke while I was at the school (figures!) so I had to get back to Indiana.
Very cool weekend though!
I had a blast with you the first day out. You in front, me in front I was racing! ha ha second day, and race all I did was get passed. I need to brake more and more deep.
Saturday I was on less then half a pad with spacers behind them. Sunday for the race I had brakes again, good to know people in high places that can hook me up at 11pm on a saturday :)
I have some great pictures of you on my photo site. http://s300.photobucket.com/albums/...?start=all
