It was pretty much a young folks crowd, with the majority of the drivers in their early to mid twenties, zipping around in their modified Hondas and the likes. Some real good drivers too.
We were treated to a little bit of drama. A hopped up Exige S blew a gas or oil line in the engine bay and lit up like a flame ball as he tried to coax his car to the pits. I didn't get any pictures, but he is all righ. His car's rear end was burnt to a crisp before they were able to put him out. Not a total loss, but it will be a few bucks to put her right.
An interesting event for anyone wanting to dabble with performance driving events. I think a far superior start to what is offered at ICAR given Perry Auto's attention to instructor based driving.
Good write-up.. I have to agree (with no personal experience) . Lately I have read that there isn't always enough instructors at ICAR and the rules are not clearly specified. I think Carl (It is Carl that runs that show, right?)has a better grasp of the situation in his events.
So ??? How did Lise do?
