Talking Legacy videos from Watkins Glen open track event online

Check here for the details http://www.i-club.com/ubb-files/Foru...ML/004167.html . So far I have 7 clips up, and more should be forthcoming in the next few days. Enjoy!

It was on open track event run by Tracquest www.tracquest.com . Nothing special. Basically, if you have a car in good mechanical condition, and you have a helmet, and you have a few hundred bucks, you're good to go. In the NESIC Forum there's a thread called "For all you track racer types" or something like that - I posted some links in there that you could check out for similar events.

Thanks, Pat,
I don't see anything on tracquest about events at the Glen. Have you got a line on future forays?

This was Tracquest's first East Coast event, and their only one for this year. They'll be back next year I'm sure. Check out www.trackschedule.com for other clubs that may be running at WGI.

AS an old racing game once said, "Nice driving!" (btw that was Pole Position)

We'll have to get some "good" shots of our escapades - hopefully of us passing someone instead of being toasted by 450hp Skylines!

Cheers!

Sweeeet! It's videos like this that continue to foster a longing within to go race... It's really only finances and a little self-control (okay, and a wife and kids) that's keeping me from doing it. Thanks for letting me/us live vicariously through you.

Good god, those are great vids! love the WOT sounds from the in-cabin shots. You mentioned the HP diff w/ putting you at a disadvantage w/ the WRX, what about handling? Reviews always seem to rave about the WRX chasis etc..., and on the track it would seem to make a big diff, esp. in the older (less rigid but lighter) Legacy. Would you have kept up w/ that extra 60+ hp?

Oh, it would have been all over if I was packin' 227hp. However, I had a gross advantage over the two WRXs in the handling department. My Legacy is riding on DMS Golds and Kumho V700s, while both WRXs there were on stock suspensions. The blue WRX was riding on 18" P1s and Paradas, while the silver one was on the stock rims with stock-sized RE730s.
