I've been trying to shoot video like crazy so I have some fun and cool stuff to post on YouTube, and I got a couple laps onboard one of the SRFs at Harris Hill! The camera angle is pretty cool to watch, you can see me sawing on the wheel and having a good time (as you can see from the screenshot here). If you want to kill some time check out the YouTube channel, or go straight to the video! Hint: There's a similar one from COTA with a customer driving!

At the bottom of the page is my original writeup, circa 2013. A lot has changed at COTA as grip has increased, bumps have appeared, track limits have changed, etc. Before that is a current writeup from my buddy Rich Soule, as posted on his website, carsandcode.com: After many thousands of laps at CotA I can say for certain that the turns that most folks have trouble with are the following: Turn 3 You should enter turn 3 from as far LEFT as you feel comfortable.

[caption id="attachment_229" align="alignright" width="300"] SRF in COTA F1 garage[/caption] Whew, what a weekend! A few months back, I got a call about a COTA racecar rental for a 3 day event in February with MVP Track Time. Well, it ddin't start off like that! But rather than hassle with dragging his racecar down from Michigan, my customer decided an arrive-and-drive program would suit him better! Arrangements were made, both SRF's were prepped, and we loaded in Thursday evening! Ted got a garage which we shared with Motorsports Southwest, the US importer of Wolf Racing Cars. What a treat to be in an F1 garage for 3 days! And Dean and his crew were a pleasure to share a garage with -- and being a fellow local, it was astounding the…

COTA Parking, Camping, and Info

COTA, Rentals
I've gotten a couple emails asking about parking and camping for events at COTA, and rather than write a book on the COTA parking and camping page I'll try to explain a little real quick here: Campers and folks looking to park are welcome year round, whether you're in town for a track day, SCCA race, solar car expo, TV shoot or one of the big events like F1, MotoGP, Grand-AM, V8 Supercars or Kenny Chesney, we'll be glad to have you with us! Prices vary because we only offer a complete suite of services for the big events (like complimentary breakfast and coffee), and because of demand. We've also got discounts for volunteers at SCCA events and folks leasing cars from us for track days. There are also group…
