Just curious. How many plan on running their Z on a road course this summer?

BTW, yes, can't wait!

I have take my Z06 to Buttonwillow for the second time today and am more than likely going to go back. However, there are numerous components that need to be modified or replaced before I do so. In my opinion and for my driving desires,the Z06's, in stock form, are not as good as they are portrayed.

Gordy:

I recognize your name from CCM. I am a member and plan on attending the next meeting. I have been unable to attend meetings since my diagnosis and subsequent succesfull treatment of leukemia....Doc says my immune system is now healthy enough to start going out and moving ahead! Hurray! See you on the 28th.

You were wondering about autocrossing, road course time trials, and drag racing. I am going to do all threee--what's a Z06 for. In case you are not aware of it Corvette Club of MIchigan does all 3 with at least one event every month from April-Oct.

In just Michigan, Indiana and Ohio there are events every weekend from April to November--give me an email for more info.

I'm entered in the Big Bend Road Rally (Fort Stockton, TX) in April. Same sort of rules as the Silver States Classic in Nevada. I think the course is 59 miles one way; there's a 2 hour break and you do it again in the other direction. I'm in the Grand Sport Class (top speed 165) with a 130 target (average).

I have only done Auto-X and I have not been to a road course race. They are opening a new site near New Orleans and I am going look in to it. I guess I know a few people that have wrecked cars at Road Races and I am a little scared.

I've already run hot laps at Sandia Motorsports Park here in Albuquerque twice and plan many more. It's a real blast. 105 in the front straight. 1m 37s lap so far on a 1.57 mi course with the street tires.

My friend and I are set up for Bragg-Smith Level 1 in May. Their Z06, their tires, their brakes, their clutch, their fiberglass. I will write a feature all about it when we get back......

Felkebg:

I did the B-S level 1 two years ago, and had a ball! You will have a great time, especially the last day. You get to pass other cars on that last day, and the instructors do not pace you in Camaros....they are watching from the sidelines and critique you via two-way radios.

I am proud to say, I passed three other cars, and no one passed me during that exercise! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Waiting to read your report!
