Ah, So much fun.. we need to see more IS's out there. There was another yellow IS300 there and that was it for the IS showing. A4 club and Club 4G (corolla drifters) were also there.

We got 4 session run in on Sat.

First session track was cold. 55 degree out. so the car felt really sloppy. Got better as the day got warmer.

Second session. Couple of cars totally locked up spin off to the dirt big time right in front of me.. I hope I wasn't pushing them too hard at the blind S's They really when off hard.. got into the dirt going backward. luckily not one rolled the car.

Lunch break was Skip pad runs and parade laps. I did a couple of skip pad runs. I do admit, I need a lot more practice on the controlling the car side ways..

Couple of casualties.. Eclipse 2G GSX. blew a motor at the front straight. MAN! painful to watch but spectacular .. Boom!!!! white smoke was coming out from all the gap in the hood. smoke also came of of the front grill and bottom of the car. Nastiest stuff I ever seen. The guy rolled down the track with small fire under the car. Safety truck quickly got to the scene and put out the fire.

Turbo Civic went off and lost the front airdamn and grill. and a integra broke something and called it a day.

Please note. These guys were running way too hard. and if you go you can always stay at a pace you are comfortable with.. Just let poeple pass you on the straights.

My friend was filming so I'm hoping to host some videos soon. Sorry didn't catch the eclispe blowing up. but bunch of drifting footage and skip pad footage.

Peace everyone and get out to the track. :D .

Steve... if you can capture it in a file send it to me and I will host it. Make a copy of the tape and I will capture it into a mpeg file. People have to see this..

no la.. before i went .. my civic paint crack up so bad..
i was afraid ... that .. it will mess up the paint ... cuz willowspring is pretty rocky... if u spun out.
so i donno . i will use the civic.. but still having doubt for the IS.

yellowIS5spd, how is ur IS after each event ... any paint chip off ?
this is the only thing preventing me using the IS

I didn't really know the other Yellow IS. I just talked to him a little. His car is pretty new so it was pretty stock mechanically.

My paint was OK.. Only did a 2 wheel off once. And didn't follow people too closely.

I see the Audi guys leaving a layer of car wax on the car to protect the paint. you can try that.
