Back from ACNA Fall VIR event, WOW!

My first HPDE, and I had a BLAST! I met Fritz and Damian, great guys, thanks for the ride Fritz, that was certainly the ride of my life!

I can't believe how much I learned, and I'm already setting up to go to the spring event in April. I'm cutting my vids now, hope to have them up this afternoon.

Now I get to pack the car up for the winter and fix everything that got stressed out...I'm pretty sure i need a new air pump now, it's squeeking pretty bad.

3rd pic down is gorgeous.

Glad I could finally get you out for a couple laps before you went home and look forward to seeing you at the track next year

Oh man, I can't wait to get out there again. I'm certainly doing VIR in april, and i'm thinking of doing a PCA event at Summit in May as well, then if I can swing it i'll do VIR again in the Fall.

I may have to find somethings to sell to finance all this though...

I CAN NOT WAIT for the video.

If you like the band FILTER I think some good back round music would be the "nice shot" song. That's not the exact title I'm sure.

The end result is awesome, i love the effects with the music. This is my first video camera so I'm still using lame Windows Movie Maker, but I think i'm going to look into something a little more robust.
