4439 at MSR Houston for Chin Track Days

After installing new stop tech sport pads, new front wheel hubs, and getting some fresh DOT 4 I took 4439 out for 6 hours of track time this past weekend.

Mostly avoided the rain Saturday, and Sunday was sunny and perfect. Had some great runs. This was my first time running with Chin and they solo qualified me after 2 sessions.

Only had one bad off at 100+ mph resulting from several factors:

1. Mentally tired, 2nd day 2nd to last session
2. Choosing to accept and continue to pursue pass in to corner instead of waving off
3. BMW should have given an earlier signal and lifted to let me get back on line and not drag race me


On a side note- BFG G-Force Comp 2 all season tires are not as good for the track as my previous Michelin Pilot Super Sports but for $100 I can hardly complain.

Video 1- harassing a GT350R after I let it catch up to me to see if he had gotten any better ( 2 min mark)
good battle with red miata after I let him by for most of mid video
going off road at 100+ mph starting around 11:15 mark




Video 2- A few good clean laps and a good fight with a new Genesis G80 sport resulting in 2 wheels off for me around the 19:30 mark



Video 3- Killing the GT350R. My instructor originally assigned to me is in the passenger seat of the 350, talked to him after and had some good laughs about the 350.

Some EXCELLENT runs! Enjoyed!
And very good response to the pending off track. A non-recoverable situation.
The BMW tempted you...

Yea those darn BMW drivers!

This group, Chin Motorsports, does a ton of track events at Sebring; have you ever run with them?

What is the best time of year to run at Sebring? Assuming like Texas June through the beginning of September is brutal?

Ahh, Sebring, the Mt Olympus home of the Track Gods. Since the demise of Track Guys, I run Sebring with NASA FL, a great club to run with, strict and safe.
Chin FL is higher priced for Sebring. They sell out quickly. And Chin FL attracts the S FL money, meaning new very new High Horsepower rides with beginner drivers. An 01 would be an antique. I have not run with Chin.
But at Sebring summer with NASA FL, get a garage and it is tolerable. Yes, You need to run Sebring! I'll run with you there. Just beware turn 1, 7 and 17! And getting lost on the back stretches.

I want to run there for sure, lets try to set something up for later this year or next year. Let me know.

Also thinking about running at Road Atlanta, Barber, and VIR here in the next year or two if you want to hit any of those lets plan something. Maybe we can get Paul to meet us up in the GT.....

I know they are in the process of planning the 2020 Nationals to be announced during the 2019 Nationals. Maybe something can be setup near one of these track for 2020. HINT HINT!

Yea was hoping the 3 days at Heartland Park in Topeka would happen for 2019, but alas the stars did not align.

Would love to hit the track for nationals in 2020, not sure we have enough cars to even come close to rent a track, one can dream!
