What's better than a wet autocross? A wet autocross on a club track

What's better than a wet autocross? A wet autocross on a club track

https://youtu.be/vEFfJPv0Jwg

Second time I have been to GrandSport Speedway in Hitchcock, TX which is built on an old WWII blimp base southeast of Houston. This was my best run of the day, 64.368 sec, 0.4 sec off of first place in ASP, my S4 was sliding a bit in the last sweeper, track was still damp in places but much drier than the two previous heats, the first one was in a...

If you're in downtown Houston a week from Thursday

Go check out some of the Don Schumacher Top Fuel and Funny Cars. It would be awesome if they fired one up in downtown but I’m pretty sure that’s not going to happen.

My new beater

My new beater

I’ve been looking for a beater watch for awhile for camping and outside work as well as field visits for work. Did not really want a G Shock as I think they’re just too big now, picked up this Seiko SKX007 diver from A***zon for $200 and am wondering why I didn’t get one sooner. It’s already running pretty good for a cheap automatic movement and it looks great.

Roadkill casualty

Roadkill casualty

I fought the hog and the hog won. My S4 was the victim of a Javelina (a wild hog native to Texas) after cresting a rise Sunday night after doing some driving in the Davis Mountains earlier in the afternoon.

Bashed the radiator in at the bottom passenger side so all of the coolant leaked out rendering it undriveable. Got it towed to Odessa, while I had a rented Explorer for field work had to...

Will post my Lone Star Le Mans pics when I'm home tomorrow

But check out this painting.

It was painted during the WEC race in the Audi Sport suite by Bill Patterson and auctioned off for $5600 benefitting the Austin Hatcher Foundation, IMSA’s designated charity. Pretty cool.

Watchlopnik: New PVD Chronograph

Watchlopnik: New PVD Chronograph

Just received my new (to me) Bell & Ross Pilot’s Chronograph. The early Bell & Ross watches were rebadged Sinn models sold outside of Germany. I found this one in good condition, I was looking for one of the older Porsche Design models with PVD coating but could not find one that wasn’t pretty beat up. Wrist shot and a pic with my Speedmaster below.

Chaparral Gallery

Chaparral Gallery

Travelled to Midland/Odessa for the day, when my meeting ended early I went to the Petroleum Museum and saw the Chapparal Gallery where Jim Hall has his cars displayed. If you’re not in the oil business you may not have much reason to visit unless you’re driving through but for oppos it’s worth the visit

Best run of the day yesterday

Best run of the day yesterday

1st in ASP, only competition was a 335i on worn out slicks. My only clean run, wheel bolt/spacer started vibrating during third run and I skipped the fourth run. Definitely woke me up

Autocross on a road course, part III

Autocross on a road course, part III

Third time going to Grandsport Speedway in Hitchcock, Texas, this time with the Lone Star Region PCA. It was a fun fast layout and my best was 52.7 sec, results haven’t been updated so don’t know what FTD was, I ran in an Audi only group and was second to a V10 R8 but I had a blast.
