About Damn Time
« on: March 24, 2014, 07:52:16 PM »
So... I finally hit the track again for the first time in almost 2 years  8)
Did the Ed Bargy Race school at little Talladega (Talladega Gran Prix raceway).  It was one hell of a drive (32 hours in a car down and back...), but it was warm (77F at the track, 32F at home...) and worth it.

Jag, Nope, Just a 1 day school.  but worth it just to get out of the cold for awhile and meet up with some old friends I haven't seen in years...

But, Thinking my racing days may be over as I just don't have that aggressive drive I use to go get the next guy in front of me.  I think I'd just rather ride around on track days at the pace I feel like...
