I'm so freakin slow here. :oops: I'm going to Thunderhill on Saturday with a buddy to watch some vintage racing, mixed in with a chance of rain. Maybe I can pick up some tips ... or at least watch some really cool old cars race. 8-)

Have been racing this track for quit a few seasons so you learn some things. :D

The corkscrew is not really a place to pick up time but is a great place to loose a lot of time. You need to be way to the left at the top.

Pushing too hard to go faster here will be slower, need very clean laps. I'm on most Saturday nights starting at 10 central and usually a few others are as well, feel free to jump in and run some laps with us.

I'll try to get on Saturday night, too.

Judging by previous years results, Pros will be in the 1:58s or 59s at THill is why we have a Sportsman class.

I expect the Sportsmen to be perfectly competitive with each other and am hoping for more high finishes by Sportsmen in Race Twos.

We went to the single car classification mixed grid largely because of the low turnouts but also so that the Sportsmen could drive the V8s too. If we had 10+ drivers in each driver class, I'd still be interested to see how the mixed grid worked out.

I doubt I'll make it either.

The weather at Thunderhill was clear and cool -- as were the cars: a 1955 Lancia D50/A, a hemi-powered 1954 Chrysler New Yorker Panamerica car and a few TA cars. The fastest we timed was a Z28, former Greg Pickett/Wally Dallenbach Jr. car that ran 2:02s pretty consistently. Sounded pretty awesome too in spite of THill's sound restrictions. The vintage FFs were nearly as fast.
