Chuckwalla CCW 10.19.2013 PCA SD event, shinanigans galore

Ton of fun.

Was surrounded by a bunch of P cars, but represented!

My 3,800 lb car did alright among a bunch of low CoG, 3,000lb, aero'd P cars.

Nice. It's annoying how you can't mess around and get black flagged. Come out to speed district event. We have lots of fun

When cars go off and kick dirt onto the track, cleanup crew has to go out and it causes delay as well as, I suspect, adding cost to the organizer (depending on what the organizer negotiated with the track owner).

I read that they ran CCW for the weekend....was it for both days? PCA is a bit strict about people going sideways and going off.

I ran only Saturday, but I think so, since Sunday was TT.

Well, the organizer's big wigs didn't say anything. It was more of the corner/flag workers. But, even then, they were actually pretty cool about it. I know those guys from many previous events, mostly at BRP & CVR.

That yellow cup car was flying and wasn't to be messed with. Did he run like a 1:50? He was taking no prisoners like the guy was ran a 1:47 this weekend at BW with his race vette.

I heard that yellow GSR cup car is like 2,400lb and 400hp, running race fuel and slicks, and obviously aero. It was just unbelievable how fast that car caught up. Then, later I heard the stats and went 'oh, no wonder.'

That is super light with lots of power, makes my car seem like a pig. The aero on those cup cars is no joke. From the clip it looked like he was in full race mode looking to overtake anyone ahead of him. The vette at BW was passing people in the RED at will too. There was a spec 911 with full aero, slicks, and race fuel who was practicing in my group on Saturday and he blew by me like I was doing a parade lap.

They ran both CCW for both days. Everyone got progressively faster with more seat time and there was a lot less traffic there on Sunday so it was easy to get a clean lap in. By mid Sunday I was already worn out.

PCA put on a very good event and they had a lot of fast cars out there without any major incidents. Nice to see a clean track for once. Lol

Wait, the dark grey one? The one in my video?

You had a GT3 before.

Oh, wow... You know, on Saturday, it did occur to me that you might be there but that Z06 would've been the last guess.

I was parked next to the red Z06.

Since he was all over the place, the black flags don't surprise me.

I was slowly improving throughout the weekend but my tires were completely toast by Sunday morning. I had never run CCW so I had no clue where I was going so I waited for people to follow most of the time It is always nice to have a rabbit out in front.

Are you going to Button next week with PCA?
