Stretched the GT's Legs a Bit...

I had the opportunity to run wide open around Barber Motorsports Park at the 45th Anniversary. In total I had about an hour and a half of unrestriced open track with just a few other cars with me.

On the front straight, I was able to hit 110+, and it was legal! haha. I wasn't really pushing my car hard...this wasn't a race just track time.

That is my mechanic haha...he has a bunch of old SSP cars that he has restored. He runs a one stop shop.

www.svpu.com

And yes...he ran around the track with his sirens on haha.

I am getting on Talladega twice this year. Once on the short track with SCCA PDX @ TGP...and then on the tri oval with some other club.
