240Z first lap of race at Laguna Seca


Recommended Posts

That car on the point is actually a 370Z that has really been dialed in now and is running in the SCCA STO(Street Touring Over) class which includes cars like Vipers and Vettes. He has since added a wing and huge brakes and has gotten quite fast. He has more power, more brakes, and runs about three secs. a lap faster than I can. We do OK, though, with our 200 HP.

BTW, I usually go like stink at the beginning of the race but the brakes go away as they are single disks/drums per the Improved Touring rules. All my competition knows it and just waits to pounce. This year, however, we've taken the first ten races in a row and have clinched the championship without even entering the last four races. We will take in Laguna at years end, just for grins. The plan is to retire the car from SCCA IT competition and fully convert to vintage, maybe with disk brakes and a real race engine. We'll see, that is if the wife vetoes the GT40 again.
