There was some pretty impressive iron on display at the car show. Best of Show runner-up went to a ’67 Datsun 1600 Roadster. Best of Show went to a beautifully-done KA-T powered S13 Coupe, decked out in pristine black paint. Best Engineered went to Wes Dumalski’s black B14 Sentra with a boosted SR, and the […]

No one had been flagged all morning, and people were really getting the hang of working together on the track, despite some pretty broad differences in speed and skill (seeing a new Z06 C6 Corvette wait patiently for a point-by to blow past […]
After a few low-speed parade laps to get the lay of the land, the run groups began… Advanced, Intermediate, and Beginner.
