Sessions 2 & 3 at Spring Fling Speed Festival April 16th, 2020 at Big Willow circuit Willow Springs International Raceway. So fortunate that the `Cuda was able to make the 360 mile trip down to such a great event.

No issues at all with the car and how it was able to run for nearly half an hour for Session 2 haha! Session 1 was just a warmup lap and to bed in the brakes so no video taken.

Session 3 I didn't really drive the car too hard, just concentrating on not crashing as I still had a 360 mile trip back home.

Enjoy!

I know you are wearing a full face helmet and harness, but at least put on some gloves, if you are in a wreck/fire/hot oil/etc. you will be using your hands to save yourself, and gloves gives you a lot more options how to do that, and allow you to focus in recovery on why you weren't in a fire suit. work

Come on, you are driving a self transporting track car.

Nice video BTW. up

You are 100% correct jcc!
I need to invest in a firesuit and gloves as one can never be too safe. Been putting it off all these years...

Thanks!

No matter what you do, you are on the track driving your car at speed, that alone makes you a better man then me. bawling laugh2

Curious, what were the passing rules on track?

The rules are simple at Tim's Alltime Racing event's:
Passing on the straights at Big Willow, Turn 2-3, Turn 5-8 and on the main straight Turn 9-1
Don't crash your or anyone else's car and have fun!

Thanks, the reason I asked, in the first video looked like a number of cars being passed had little "situational awareness", and I couldn't see if they were waving or pointing you by, made me a little nervous at times.

Also on the video while I was watching, a few times, I scooted up on my chair to try and see over the dashboard to see how you were hitting your apexes, not sure if that is a negative reflection on me eyes, or the video was so good I just became engrossed. scope

Nice track, lots of high speed sweepers, looks like fun, car sounds great. up

The Mustangs I just blew past as fast as possible as they slowed down at Turn 6-7. The part where the Viper Competition Coupe blew by me on the left at Turn 3 I had no idea it was there? The `Cuda is hard to see what's behind you due to its huge blind spots.

I'm by no means an expert at Big Willow but from what I understand is that some corners you have to hug the outside for a faster line as in Turn 7 to 8 and then clip the apex at Turn 9 before mashing the gas pedal for the main straight.
I have always messed up at Turn 3 to Turn 4 I always clip the apex but the faster way around is on the outside of Turn 4 but I keep forgetting haha

thanks!

Good to see that it still happened! With all these vacation days I'm saving up; I'll have to try to make it next year!

It sure would be great to have some outside footage of the car. This course is not too good for that though. you'd almost need a drone or special permission to position oneself on the inside of the track to lower the risk of personal injury.
