LAGUNA SECA


Let me start by saying, Officially my new favorite track, Laguna Seca. It was defiantly a good trip to the bay area for the weekend. Remember most of these pictures are phone pictures so don't get picky, just a fun blog.

Laguna Seca Track

Always go prepared for road trips/ track days.
(Spares, tools, fluids, etc.)



Stayed at Dan's house met up with Frito, Janos, and Ryan. Had to swaps seats, change oil, and throw on a rear sway bar when I got to Dans. Went from using Mobil 1 to AMS oil, there is a difference and it's not just the price.
Recaro finally came from being back ordered, finally matching seats!

After doing some work to the EG, we decided to grab some food. Ryan takes us to this place none of us have even heard of called, "Free Bird", they have this burrito they call the "Super Monster". This burrito is so big it's made out of four tortillas in a pizza pan.

Super Monster

That last picture doesn't really do much justice, so let Ryan show you a comparison next to a loaf of bread.



Here it is out of the wrapping!

HUGE BURRITO!

Woke up early the next morning had some breakfast and headed out.
The Hulk was under construction, so Dan decided to take his GT3.

Stopped to get some sandwhiches for lunch, some had the "Mysterious" Meat.



It was a chilli foggy morning.

Dan likes to just get in other people's cars and go on joy rides.

VIDEOS

Both videos were taken on the new Checkerd Sports front license plate mount.
I realized YouTube really lowers the quality of the video.

Had to shift early up the hill for sound check so I didn't get black flagged again.
1st session got the black flag, and also 3rd.
This was the 2nd session, I shifted around 6,500 to keep the noise down.
Next time we will bring silencers.
Favorite part was catching the ZR1.

Tony was jammin hard on the track.
