Nov/2010 GrassRoots Motorsports Mag
6 days and 2100 miles later I came home with a best lap of 2:11.098 and a new tow truck (the other literally died on the way out). The car performed flawlessly over 200+ miles of excruciating 99-103 degree days with tons of humidity. VIR instantly became my favorite track with my lap speeds reaching 140+ on both the front & back straights, and about 120mph at the entrance to the climbing esses.
My class included lots of 500-600hp Vipers, Vettes, Porsches, Mustangs, etc as their classing system was relatively simple and unlimited. In the end I finished 14th in class but I didn't go for the results, I went for the experience and it was insane!
