Lake Shirley ice race event #1 01/06/19

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Had a blast doing some lapping on Saturday and hope to make it to all the events this year! In my off time at the track I grabbed some photos and videos, Links below. Should have had a lot more but later found out that dust had gotten behind my lens filter which resulted in many out of focus shots.

Also, public apology for getting in anyone's way near the end of the day on Saturday when I was running with a couple other RTI guys. I do appreciate the patience :hail:

 

Easier than shrinking every photo down to forum size (Photo link)

I definitely need one.  Can we do a group buy?

You want the giant wrench too, don't you.

I think people are seeing the Triangle and not the video playing on the display...

 

Or did I just miss this entirely?

Those must be the ones that don't look ahead on the track either? ;)

Guilty on all counts!

Anyone who's ridden with me at Autoslalom knows that I have tunnel vision and don't look more than 10 feet ahead. Sad, but true.

The video from last week with Al at the wheel was awesome.  If anyone was wondering why ice racing is so much fun, this says it all.  I can't believe the speed of the steering inputs and corrections.  Oh, did I mention this is all being done while downshifting into the turns?  Would've been interesting to see the footwork as well as the hand movement.

Thanks again Aaronstump for providing that video!

I was j/k Brian. ;) You do very well on the Autoslalom course.

I do think most are guilty of this from time to time.

For future events I was definitely thinking about doing a footcam setup, just a matter of testing to see how my gopro does with adjusting for low light under the dash. 

Coming up in race 2 i'd like to get some more in car footage with other drivers as well. Open to all volunteers!

I've gone for laps on the ice with Al before and spent a lap watching his feet. It's quite the dance.

So awesome to watch a master at work! Thanks for sharing! 

It's even more impressive to know that car has an open diff. (At least, I think it does...) Patience and aggression balanced so nicely.

#55 is Al? 

Still impressive. I struggled with a Quaife, but that was also my first year on the ice. #newbieproblems ;)
