I do have the long term racing contingency plan however. My '59 Alfa should be allowed without too many issues. (Its clearly old enough, and there are already a few that run.) I'd rather race the roadster however. The extra 750cc of displacement go a long way.

True, except he's my friend too! and it's only in original form when he isn't breaking gearboxes and using Tercel :shock: parts for it...... i have known justin for a long time.

Ah, you know Justin.
Have you seen how fast he can change a driveshaft :D
That is a scary car.
It's fast though.

This past weekend I set off to get my Vintage racing license at VARA University held at Buttonwillow Raceway just out side of Bakersfield. All I have to say is that it was the best $350 2 day track day I've ever done. I highly recommend checking it out next year if you have ever wanted or thought about doing some vintage racing. Its good stuff. I had nearly 300 miles on track between the two days.

For the "Final Exam" we did full race starts, with open passing. The first few were only 3/4 of a lap, but still a take no prisoners all out race. The first one I was gridded about 6th or so. I went down the middle at the start and won the race. The second one we did I ended up being gridded somewhere near the back. We had a few Formula V open wheel cars in the mix, some very small displacement cars (less than 1300 cc) a whole slew of Long Beach Grand Prix Celebrity Challenge Toyota Celicas (rental race cars for those people who didn't have a vintage car to run) as well as some other stuff. Even though I started near the back within the 3/4 of a lap we raced I was up to 6th.

For the final race it was a one lap race. I was gridded 2nd (the car on pole should not have been there even though the guy driving was an excellent driver) and I was on the outside in 2nd. Long story short, a Porsche 2.7RS challenged me for the lead down the front straight, but I beat him to the corner, had position and closed the door from the outside of the corner on him. From there I watched the whole field disappear in my rear view mirror. I took the checkered flag by a little less than 1/2 a lap for my first road racing win (Yeah I know it was a 1 lap sprint race, but a win is a win. :wink: )

I have to say the car was awesome. I was pulling a calculated 130 mph down the back straight (redlined in 5th at 7200 rpm) and the car ran flawlessly.
Here are a few shots taken over the weekend.


Image

There was also a 1600 racing roadster that I had never seen before. For the final race, he was gridded on Pole, but didn't have enough motor to stay at the front. It was cool to have 2 roadsters leading the field.

Other shots of me though out the weekend.

Yes I passed the Morgan like he was standing still.

8) Image
Image
Image
Image (that is my favorite shot from the weekend)
This 240Z was built by BRE for a customer. The guy who has it now is a fried of mine. The car is VERY fast.
Image

Yes, the 914 was passed as well, however I couldn't keep him behind me. I missed a shift and he blew past. I wasn't able to catch him again.
Image


All in all, an awesome weekend. The next step is to get into the VSCCA/HSR-West event at Laguna Seca the last weekend in April. Its looking like there will be 3 roadsters with the outside possibility of at least another one.

Hi,

I noted that there are not very much dragracing J-tin in this thread. Hope I don't offend anybody by posting a few J-Tin drag cars.
