Lap Battle and HPDE Group 3

by Michael Chandler

Great news!  This past weekend had a gaggle of stuff going on at Miller Motorsports Park!  Sad news.  If you want to see the photos, you’re gonna have to look at them on our Facebook page.  You already spend more time on Facebook than you do working while at work, so really this is just a heads up.  Anyway, on to the stories from the day!

Brendon and his Evo were there, but his head gasket wasn’t.  At least it isn’t a mystery problem.

JDP Motorsports brought out their Camaro, and proceeded to place 1st in their class.  It does better on the West course, like all higher power cars do; however, it still looked right at home on the East course.

Super fan Sally was out, making hand gestures and generally being quick.

Max brought out the Evo, and reached into his growing bag of skills and laid down some seriously quick times.

Porsche’s natural enemy is Corvette, but Mustangs can be just as formidable.

This is normally where I stick the gallery, but due to technical issues (umm…  Yeah…) you’re going to have to go to the Facebook page and look at the album to see all 55 photos.  Sorry folks, but it’s not like you’re actually working.

Tailored/A2 Meet

by Trent

VIP Lexus LS460 on air
The Tailored crew decided to put on a meet at A2. This was their first meet and it turned out to be a hit. The free pizza didn’t hurt.

The sun was scorching, and the inside/outside meet atmosphere was unique, but somehow the inside was even hotter than the outside. Tommy joined me for a short time, but I had to cover all the photos and videos myself, and one usually suffers when I have to do both. So a special thanks to Brent from Turtle Factory for the additional pictures.

This is the beginning of more meets and isn’t the last we’ll hear from Tailored.

JDM Legends Grand Re-opening

by Michael Chandler

On June 2nd Eric Bizek and the rest of the crew at JDM Legends opened the doors to show off their new Murray digs.  The new shop is now more centrally located AND next door to ZipTie Dynowerks.  It was quite the bash, with cars lining the street and a burger van showing up to sling some sliders.  The weather was threatening, but thankfully it just looked cool and didn’t rain.

For those who don’t know: JDM Legends is a shop that specializes in the importation and restoration of classic Japanese cars.  KGC110 Skylines, turbocharged FB RX-7’s, KP61 Starlets and TA22 Celicas are some of the vehicles they’ll help you find and/or restore.  For more info on who they are and what they do and how to get a hold of them you can wait until we give them their long awaited shop feature.  But if you’re impatient (and after seeing the photos, you will be) head over to JDMLegends.com

Rally Sport Direct Eat, Greet & Swap Meet

by Michael Chandler

It was that time of year for Rally Sport Direct to conquer their street and let their customers, fans, well wishers, and people who wanted pizza to come and hang out.  This is a big draw every year, and thankfully RSD’s neighbors let them use their respective parking lots.  Everything from Hondas to Mazdas to Nissans and even a Chrysler 300C SRT8 came to join the Subaru and Mitsubishi faithful.  Check out the gallery, and check out the meet next year if you’re in town!

Track Day with the Track Pirates

by Michael Chandler

 

March 25 was the first open track day and NASA HPDE (High Performance Driver Education) of the year.  I had originally planned on doing nothing that glorious day, but Zane gave me an invite to come out so I packed up my gear and headed out.  Turns out it was a better idea than whatever I would have ended up doing.

I got out there as HPDE group was in pre-grid and getting a warning from the starter about potential slick spots on the track.  I said whats up to Zane, Fernando (to be here by known as Nando, because I hate ABBA), Brent, Biggie (provider of Lap Battle), Sally (from Wyoming, not a pirate) and Todd (pirate).

The HPDE session went off, the race group session went off, I ran for the first time in months to position myself for the next HPDE session which went off nicely, and then it was time for the lunch break.  I spent some of the lunch break ogling a pair of high dollar exotics, ogling the Air Power Racing stable, and buying a $5 pretzel.  Track food is expensive…

With pretzel in hand I climbed into Zane’s truck and we headed to the lounge and watched a little bit of JDM Option.  It’s not the nicest lounge, but it’s got everything a track rat needs: a lift, tools, a fridge, TV, couches, an Xbox and a massive wall of tires.

The lunch break ended before we could get deep into the JDM Option DVD, but why watch a DVD when you’re at a world class race track?  Exactly, so out we went: them to drive and me to shoot photos  After more clean sessions we headed back to the garage, where one of the neighbors opened his garage to play with some of his toys: a Lamborghini Gallardo and a supercharged first generation Viper huffing nitrous oxide!

All in all it was a good day.  A big thanks to the Pirates for letting me hang out.  You’ll definitely be seeing more of them on CAM in the future.

UtahHondas.net Spring Meet

by Michael Chandler

For the fifth year, UtahHondas.net held their annual Spring meet at Barnes Park in Kaysville, UT.  The meet has grown in size every year since its inception, and this year was no different.  Over 500 cars made the trek to the small town, conquered two parking lots and part of the street!  Every make is welcomed at the meet, from Scions to Subarus to Toyotas to BMWs, there was even a pretty clean Charger R/T hanging out.

I snagged some photos, but if you’re still hungry there are plenty more on UtahHondas

Drifting at Global 1

by Michael Chandler

In another county, and on a far less sophisticated track, was a little drift get together thrown by the guys at D-Spare.com.  Fun? YOU BET! Out of the way? NO DOUBT!  Worth the drive?  UNEQUIVOCALLY YES!

I arrived after Brandon broke his turbo, so no awesome photos of the purple/silver/green S13 today.  However there were more people in attendance besides Brandon and Jose.  Mike (flat black S13) came out to play, as did Nick (the Miata), a pair of E36 BMW’s, an RB swapped S13, a turbo’d AE86 coupe, a 3 rotor turbo FC and the usual cast of favorites.

Twas a fun event, one that will certainly happen again and one that we will certainly head to

WinterX March 10

by Michael Chandler

Wintercross

Hi everybody!  It’s great to be back.  Sorry for the lack of…well anything.  Winter and full time day jobs tend to have that effect, but no more!  We’re back!  And we’ve been out at the track as of late.

March 10th was the last WinterX event held out at Miller Motorsports Park for the year.  It was sunny, warm and not very wintery, but it was still a fun event.  For those unfamiliar with what WinterX is, think of it as Wide Open Wednesdays meets Lap Battle: you have gates like in the WOW events, but it’s timed and broken into classes and also uses the various track configurations MMP has to offer like Lap Battle does.  It’s wonderful and left me wondering why it’s taken me so long to make it to one.

Enough rambling, time for some photos!
