I had a great time beating up on all the novice porsche's and bmw's... and other audi's for that matter. We ended up getting "fogged-out". We did get 3 of our 4 sessions in, so that was good. Keep your eyes open for my video when I get a chance to put it together.

sorry, no photos on the track...yet. They did have a company that was supposed to be shooting us on the track, but I have yet to see the images.

I do have all my sessions on video from inside the cabin. I'll put something together this week and post it.

I don't have much to compare to, but in my mind the Falkens were awesome on the track. Soft compound with stiff sidewall. Really nice. They heated up nice and sticky.

yup, just black painter's tape.

Great pics!!! I certainly want to see it on track though. I can't wait to see the video!

BTW, what helment is that? I'm looking at the Bell M2, but can't decide if I should buy it now, or wait until the Snell 2005's come out. Suggestions?

Later,
Mike

well, how pressed for time are you??

Snell 2005 rated helmets won't be available until early spring 2005. Most likely May. So if you can wait....then wait.

for now, a Snell2000 will be fine for at least another 3 seasons of racing. If you currently have a SA95, wait on the 2005's.

^^^^ what he said as far as waiting. But as far as my helmet goes, it's the Bell Sport II (SA2000)

Yeah, wish there was some good video footage of us on the track from an outsider's point of view. All I have is the in-car. Which by the way is really sick... you can really see and hear the speed. I'll get it going later this week I hope.

I was hoping you (both) wouldn't say that! I really want to start autocrossing my new toy (M1 Miata) and tracking my Avant. Granted, I can wait until the spring autocross season, but I was thinking of getting the helment as a Christmas gift to myself. ARGH! Decisions, decisions! I guess the ultimate deciding factor is when the autocross season begins. I may be wrong, but I thought it always started in April. Jeesh, I really hope that Bell comes through and makes them available before the autocross season begins!

Oh yeah, any luck with the video yet? Can't wait to see it!

Thanks again,
Mike

LOL... no, not yet. I actually had to work yesterday... yeah I know, what the hell? I need to do a little work on the driver's seat and my stupid driver's side window today, so maybe later tonight or tomorrow I'll have something up. What format do you like?

found a few photos of my car on the track... sorry about the watermark, but that's all I get unless I drop $100+ for the photos.
