Wow! It's been a crazy couple of months... lots of new and exciting things happening in and around the shop! So here's a quick update: MotoGP Camping We're VERY excited to be hosting 50-100 of our fellow enthusiasts for Moto GP camping April 19-21! With 17 acres there should be plenty of room for everybody to spread out and keep off each others toes. We hope the weather will cooperate, and that we'll get enough rain before then to get this burn ban lifted so we can have a good old fashioned, Texas-sized bonfire! But fear not, for those attending, we'll have some grills available for you to cook on and hopefully a "burn ban approved" fire pit/area so we can gather 'round, roast marshmellows and listen to some FANTASTIC…

I'm super stoked how much visibilty my COTA Walkthrough post has gotten -- I'm just a schmuck with some racecars, but everybody's been SUPER complimentary and thanked me for posting it which gives me the warm fuzzies.

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!

COTA Walkthrough!

COTA Walkthrough!

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. You should NOT go to the right side of the track to enter turn 3. Ideally you are carrying as much speed as possible through 2 and are brushing your driver’s side (assuming left hand drive car here) wheels right over the edge of…

[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…
