NC/TN Border. US441 from Cherokee to Pidgeon Forge; near Tail of the Dragon. Front and rear of the pack.
Just got back. 10 days. 9 states. 2 dozen friends roadtripping 2,000+ miles across the US. Driving. Racing. Exploring. Partying. Shooting. Many many more photos/videos to follow; here’s one teaser shot in Southeastern Tennessee of my 7.3l Powerstroke hauling the sol, and one of the other group vehicles (Miata).
On the North track yesterday at Autobahn Country Club for the SCCA PDX event. 90whp stock y8 motor, and a little suspension love and I was very impressed with how the car did in the corners. Of course on the straights the lack of power was apparent..but not as bad as I thought. I was able to keep relative pace with this Ferrari 360 and put the hurts on a Mini and a Carrerra; certainly feel accomplished. First session out was in the wet, and that was pretty sketch. Accidental Ken Block style through the back half of the track, but fortunately no offs. By the last session the track was pretty grippy and dry; and you could feel a whole winter’s worth of built up ego making its way out as this hot lapping day quickly grew into some corner-entry wars.
