My Chariot to Qualify for the Runoffs

I've been busy the past two months figuring out a plan to qualify for and make it to the Runoffs this year after the engine issues I've had with the RX8.

This was the solution - the price was right and it is reliable:

Right now, it is in Showroom Stock C trim. More details to follow as I prep it for T4 and make progress with the setup.

Runoffs Updates

The schedule for the 2016 SCCA Runoffs has been released. I will have four qualifying sessions on Monday (9/19) through Thursday (9/22) at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. The Touring 4 race is scheduled for 5:10pm on Friday (9/23) and will be 40 minutes or 23 laps - whichever comes first.

I will post live timing info as we get closer to the event. I need one more race weekend on the SCCA US Majors Tour to qualify for the Runoffs. More details on that later!

Also released is the paddock map which shows just how many parking spots is needed to house the SCCA's biggest club racing event. I've heard rumors that this may be the biggest entry count in the history of the Runoffs....we shall see. When the reservation system opens up later this month, I will hopefully be getting a paved spot - need to be quick on the mouse click I think. Grass is fine until it rains...

The draft test day schedule has also been released by the SCCA. Damn, the first two days are expensive! I don't have nearly enough vacation/dough to make that happen but will likely run the Sunday session to get dialed in before the quali session on Monday the 19th.

New Yaw Moment Racing Logo!

My very talented and creative wife drafted me up a new logo as you can see above in the blog title. We've been talking about this for a long time and I'm stoked to see it come out this way. I'm looking forward to seeing how it looks on some t-shirts and in vinyl. Thanks Ali!

I will be making some changes to my blog (and actually posting....) and social media over the next few weeks so stay tuned for some updates.

Onboard Video from the Mineral Wells ProSolo

Here is onboard video from my quickest runs on each side of the 2016 Mineral Wells ProSolo event a few weeks ago. Cliffnotes - fun weekend with the family, finished 2nd in a 15 car C-Street field, NDs may be tough to beat at Pros or maybe I need to run Bridgestones or maybe just find some more speed.
