More Time at the Track

I just ended a wonderful three-day weekend trip visiting family in Charlotte. The only Corvair-related incident involved attending a SCCA event at Carolina Motorsports Park. Victoria, Brianna’s fiancĂ©, my wife’s brother, and I arrived at the track around 9:30 Sunday morning. We drove right up to David Clemens’ pit. So nice to see the Corvair contingency represented by such a fast and gorgeous car. Rick Norris was there to crew for David. He came without his beautiful Sunoco-liveried LM, but he was prepared with posters for the Corvair faithful that made the scene. We watched qualification/practice sessions, including the one David was in, until lunch. I filmed a few of his passes and will post the edited clip on the web ASAP.

After lunch we were only able to see most of the first race of the day because we had to leave for a family picnic. Unfortunately, it was NOT the group David was in. Afterwards, I found out David came in second in his class. Many of the racers were quite surprised with the car's capabilities. Regardless, all four of us had a wonderful time. I gave the still camera to Victoria and the pictures she took can be seen here.
