Jun 18 2016 Bill Events Comments Off on Our first Ultimate Track Car Challenge

Each year, around the time most folks are sobering up from 4th of July libations, some of the countries fastest drivers and their mechanical weapons of choice descend upon Virginia International Raceway to see just who has the Ultimate Track Car during Grassroots Motorsports’ editorial exposition of speed. This year, a change was made. The change moved the event from scouldering hot July to a near perfect mid-May weekend and peaked the interest of the spectators already planning to attend …

Apr 22 2016 Bill 1994 Mazda MX-5, Events, News Comments Off on Making the NASA Time Trial debut, #62

Over the last several years, we have been building, tweaking, fabricating, cussing and maybe even a little embellishing our 1994 MX-5 into something that could be called a race car. Owner, Mike Brose, has been hard at work along the way improving his own skills and knowledge of the platform and racing organizational rules to be a creditable race car driver. All of that work began with NASA Mid-Atlantic Autocross Championship events in 2011 and eventually took Mike to his …

Leading up to the event, we had plenty of strong competitors registered for this year’s 2015 Get Twitchy Challenge as part of the September 5th NASA Mid-Atlantic Autocross Circuitcross event. The weather reports were changing more than the radar could keep up and it wasn’t until the morning of the event that we would find out the weather should hold out for a great day of competition. Heat one was packed with over 20 cars taking on the 1.1 Patriot …

Dec 26 2013 Bill Events No Comments

Trying to get a grip on the 2014 upcoming events. We have decided to take full advantage of what NASA has to offer and curb some of the operating costs by working some events as a volunteer and then driving in the events we aren’t working. The best method we can see to this is to work as many non-Mid-Atlantic events as we can. This way we can best capitalize on learning more about NASA while not falling behind on …

The third NASA-X event for 2013 season is completed. For once we had great weather! This event was sponsored by PTuning in Manassas, so we had plenty of FRS/BRZ cars running around and a lot of Novices running. Hopefully they got hooked and will keep joining us. The #62 MX-5 placed very well again, running a low 58s pass. The #78 RX8 came in behind him at a 59s pass and the #330 BMW came in at a 61s pass. …

Mike’s recap of the Southern Discomfort Event for the 24 Hours of Lemons: “Okay, my experience. I’ll first start with the team. Definitely a great group of people with a very high amount of attention to detail. Bonnie did a fantastic job as manager and kept it well organized. We never had any moments where we were scrambling around, bumping into each other. They are very friendly and engaging. I appreciate the experience on the track as it was my …

Nov 21 2011 Bill Events Comments Off on Bill’s run 11/20/11 VMP

This was my fastest clean lap of the day. I bested this run with a 55.11 but managed to clip a cone on the fourth gate. As it was, the car did fairly well – one ignition misfire (still playing with dwell times) and NO rebound left in the struts. Time to send everything off to get rebuilt and get ready for 2012 Championships!!!
