E-town Report 4/19/14

Greetings all...

Well, on a very nice sunny day, 2 CCDV members, Joel Fellman and Tad Archambult, joined yours truly at the track. I was running 3 events (trying to break in new tires) so I can't report on how Joel and Tad did, so hopefully they will chime in!

The air was good for racing, barometer was 30.11", (anything over 30.00" makes for some great engine performance), and DA (density altitude, a combination of barometric pressure, humidity, temperature, oxygen content in the air...) was ranging from 400 to 1100, which isn't "mineshaft" air (that would be a negative DA reading), but was still not bad..!

We had lots of opportunites to run and test our cars. Time runs, Corvette Challenge, Modern Muscle and the Big 3 Challenge which is Mustang vs Camaro vs Modern Hemi (which also included a Muscle bracket for Corvettes! Wow! Pick 1,2,3 or all 4 events to race in!!!!

I lost to eventual event winner Steve Pistelli in the 1st round of the Corvette Challenge, but did manage to go a few rounds in the Modern Muscle category, and was fortunate to WIN the Big 3 Challenge-Muscle bracket! Sweet!!

The next event is this coming Saturday, April 26!
The weather forecast from here looks like sunny & 70 degrees, so it would be a perfect day to come and try your luck, or just practice and see what its like for some time shots!

Nothing better than seeing what your car can do on a professionally prepped surface, (which is a special glue & a sticky compound called VHT), put on the track to make your tires stick!

Its a completely different driving experience compared to driving on the public roads and highways.. You gotta TRY IT for sure!!!

Hope to see you next week!

Yea, I've won a few races.....

Yo El: Congrats on that win. I knew you were doing well. I know Tad made it passed the first round but I didn't so I don't know how far he went. But I was happy with my runs for the first time out this season. A 14.310 with an R/T of .025. Then a 14.344 red lighted. So I dialed in 14.3 and ran a 14.251 and lost. But the Vette hooked up great and I still haven't filled the tank with juice so I'll give that a try next time (which for me will be May 17th). I hope the person who ran off the far end of the track is OK. Never heard any report. But I'm looking forward to next month.
Bought our '76 new in June '76 and joined CCDV that same month. Also owned a 1981 & 1995 coup. Past President 1989, 1990, 2000, 2001 & 2014. Presently CCDV's VP, Club Historian & still own our '76!

El, you should post that picture of your weather station and your time slip. That is incredible.
