Hey Shawn,

My new WRX is going to be an everyday driver
and a track car. I have run at Putnam Park
and IRP in Indiana. LOVE Putnam. I am moving to northern IN so new home track will have to be Gingerman in MI. I just got back from the Rolex 24 at Daytona.
I go every year! I will add pic of my 911 later.

I've had my RS out to the road track twice.

I actually want to pick up an older car like a Sentra or something like that for a track car.

I will have 3 track events after April, hopefully more by October. I want to pick up a VW Gti (Rabbit, not Golf) and race that in IT.

My father lives in Germany. I have driven the
Nordschleife!!!! If you have not driven it before get a video and a track map and study.
Also be sure to call the Nurburgring before you go. The track is somtimes booked for testing.

Last year at 24hrs of Daytona a driving instructor friend of mine introduced me to
Elliot Forbes-Robbinson. He raced there I only got to run 2 laps in an Audi S3.
What a thrill to talk about the Nurburgring
with a racing legend!!!!!!!!

It would be fun to get my new WRX out on a track as I would like to compare my times to my track only 1965 Porsche 356. I race my Porsche 6-8 times a year at Sears Point, Laguna Seca and Thunderhill here in Northern California. I would really like to get the WRX out on a wet track and see how it compares to the Porsche....I got my first and only Pole position last year in very wet conditions at Sears Point...I like letting it slide a bit!

I race a 2000 RS, in our Street Touring 2
category. It's very similar to SCCA showroom stock with a couple of mods.
Our competition: vr6, celica gts, miata, acura, m3 e30, jetta, 325i; up to 2.5L.
We won the championship this year. Last event of the year is a 1 hour racewith a mandatory pit stop. We got Fitzgerald,Korman, and other as visitors drivers in other categories.
I'll try to post pictures.

I love road racing but I haven't taken my RS to the track yet. I'm hitting the ONeil 2 day rally school tomorrow, and going to Road Atlanta March 10-11 but I'm not gonna drive down for that. I'll probably get the RS on the track at Tremblant in July. I've been to:
Lime Rock - BMWCCA and One Lap
VIR - Mazda Club and One Lap
Road Atlanta - One Lap
Sebring - One Lap
Nelson Ledges - One Lap
Michigan Int'l Speedway - One Lap
Tremblant - Corrado Club

Haven't started road racing yet, but I did start competing in some Solo I events last year. Hopefully, in the next couple of months, I'll be getting a Formula Vee and go wheel to wheel in that.

Hi Guys, It good to know that there are some I-club members that are inteested in road racing. I have tried to invite the I-club members to several track events and only a few Bay area members joined me at Laguna Seca last month. I discovered most I-club members are only interested in dressing up their cars to look like a real WRX with some clear lens, rims, etc. or to race someone on the public highway instead of driving their RS on the track and do it properly. I am still offering all I club members free driving school for the next Touring Car Racing Association track event at Buttonwillow Raceway. I am one of the volunteer TCRA club official and has been road racing for many years. Please check out the TCRA web site at your leasure. WWW.touringcarclub.com. TCRA has been around for 5 1/2 yrs with over 800 active members. I have also raced with other racing organizations including SCCA running a Corolla GTS in ITA. POC in a 911. Vintage Auto Racing Association with an Alfa Romeo Duetto Spyder, a MGB GT and a Formula Atlantic March. Currently, I am racing a WRX type RA and a Mazda Xetos Super Touring Car with TCRA. There are three WRXs in the club and the racing weekend is friendly and fun. If there is anything I could do for you guys, don't hesitate to contact me. I could be reached at (626) 293-8891 during normal working hours. Emil/TCRA2

Yeah, I know how you feel, Strepto! I subscribe to an Open Track emailing list and it makes me sick reading about all the events the guys in the Southwest (particularly California) get to. Here in New England I have Lime Rock (a rather short, old track) within about 2 hours, NHIS about 4 hours (but I've never heard of a club running a track day up there) and then from there everything is at least 6 hours away. Quite a bummer.

Here's my tentative plan for this summer:
4/2-4/3 Virginia Intl Raceway (VIR) with Quattro Club
5/18-5/19 Rausch Creek, PA with NASA-VA Region
6/30-7/1 Rausch Creek, PA with NASA-VA Region
7/13 Lime Rock Park with CT Autocross and Rally Team (CART) (practice and time trial)
7/28-7/29 VIR with Car Guys, Inc
8/24-8/25 LRP with NASA-Tristate Region
9/7 Pocono Intl Raceway with CART (practice and time trial)

VIR is probably going to be about a 10 or 11 hour drive, PIR and Rausch Creek should be 6 or 7 hours. Blech!!

Patrick, I'm guessing that you were the (un)lucky guy who rolled on the uphill turn at LRP? That was some pretty interesting video!

I saw one of the Speedvision S4's smack the Armco on that same corner last Memorial Day weekend, wow!

Howdy,
I have raced in the Jim Russel Racing School's series. It is a great way to get into the sport. You just arrive and drive. They take care of all maintenance. I also attached a karting pic. I am the one wearing all blue. Good to see that there are other road course racers in the club.

I haven't done any actual racing, but I am into open track events. I did 3 (well, 2 1/3 really, since I flipped my car ) events last year. I've already signed up for a Quattro Club event at Virginia Intl Raceway the first week in April, and I'm going to try to get to one OT event per month between April and October. Not all of that will be in my Subie, I'll also be taking my Mustang to the track this year.

It is definitely addicting. I signed up for the April event a few weeks ago and I've been chomping at the bit ever since!
